#DavidSalle on #MarsdenHartley Towering Above Maine. "whether it is a portrait or a rock there's some sense of that being a conduit for a larger feeling about awesomeness of life, but also the suffering of life"
Hartley, City Point, Vinalhaven (1937-38)

Tuesday, April 18th David Salle on Marsden Hartley @metmuseum Fifth Avenue 6:30pm
for tickets: www.metmuseum.org/events " in a way Hartley is an enigma because it's hard to put your finger on exactly why his paintings have such an emotional force behind them. The work resists any kind of sentimentality or easy illustrative relationship to narrative." #davidsallewrites #davidsallelectures #marsdenhartley image: Marsden Hartley the Dark Mountain

"Wichita, Kansas. Sodbusters, buffaloes, cowboys on long dusty cattle drives, Wyatt Earp’s jail. All that happened a long time ago. A hundred years later, I knew a landscape of tract houses, the IGA, Woolworth’s lunch counter and car lots, one after another, their boundaries marked by strings of colored flags. There were drive-in movies, Mexican restaurants and tall grain silos like sentinels along the railroad tracks. The straight black streets went on and on, stopping only at the wheat fields on the edge of town.
It was, by one measure, a classic midcentury American boyhood — I had a bicycle and a paper route, and an older brother with whom I shared a room." #davidsallewrites #nytimes #Wichita http://ow.ly/4fYL30aUXU2 photo by sean donnola

"It’s like walking through dried leaves on a chilly fall day—you keep your hands in your pockets, kicking leaves into the gutter, all the while hoping someone will see and feel sorry for you. The self-consciousness of the act doesn’t necessarily diminish its poetry." David Salle on #jackgoldstein #howtosee

"Hartley's all in coloristically... the red shirt of the lobsterman is just heartbreaking in it's redness and pinkness. Understanding when light hits red it turns pink ---the incongruity of that within this setting gives the picture an almost operatic feeling." #davidsalle "themetartistproject

“A painting is something grappled with, brought to ground. It’s a Promethean effort. The artist prevails, but at a cost.” #davidsalle in #howtosee (Essay: The Grapplers)
