Artist of the Day- Raymond Pettibon (click on image to see more)

Raymond Pettibon has a huge retrospective at the New Museum. It’s 3 floors with over 3000 pieces! Very powerful…and exhausting! His work feels somewhat like ‘outsider art’…like he’s obsessed by visions…his surfaces covered in hastily scrawled messages… with images usually in series… of baseball players, an open maw with the word ‘Vaaa voooom!’ the Iraq war, a surfer and huge waves…all beautifully drawn. This is an experience! After several hours I just wanted a nap. But such an experience. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!
