One of my favorite sites is The Rumpus, an online culture magazine that covers literature, art, film, politics, sex, comics, music and generally excellent and useful ideas. One of their writers, Julie Greicius, did a piece on a painter I’ve never seen before: Andrew Abbott. I really liked his paintings as soon as I saw them. They are harsh and beautiful at the same time. I have no idea how much they cost or anything like that. Probably a lot. They’re really good and I imagine they are hanging in a lot of fancy living rooms right at this moment.
But his web site is plenty of fun for me and this guy can paint like some serious business.
