Poem: Robert Motherwell's Reconciliation Elegy

by Jack Brummet

I think about Motherwell's Reconciliation Elegy―
how he charged around his studio,

rolling vast, turgid highways
of black oil paint over acres of canvas,

and the wrong-headed people
who say "my child could have done that."

Olmec Exhibit at LACMA In L.A., along with

We went to see the William Eggleston show at LACMA in LA. Wow. He is a color photography genius...really like the show. They had around 200 photographs from 1961-2008. The dye transfer process brings out these  saturated riots of heartbreakingly great color. He goes after the everyday image--not just glamor shots or ponderous portraits.  I really didn't know about him before this show, but he has apparently been a big influence on art and artists.
