Sol LeWitt

Do you guys love Sol LeWitt? I hope you do! I am pretty excited about Chris Teerink’s film, SOL LEWITT.

From the director: It is not an exaggeration to say that the work of Sol LeWitt changed my life. As an eighteen year old I saw his retrospective at the – then famous – Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. Seeing his wall drawings there at that time (1984) forever changed my way of thinking about art. That same year I went to art school, and three years later to film school. The fact that a concept can lead to, or produce a work of art is still a powerful tool in my practice as a filmmaker. So when I learned about the reinstallment of his wall drawing #801, ‘Spiral’ in Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, I immediately saw it as an opportunity to start thinking about a film on Sol LeWitt, to pay homage to the man who’s work influenced me se deeply. But more than to pay homage I wanted to discover. How could such simples ideas, lead to such powerful and overwhelming works? The answer to that question turned out to be a surprise, also to me, so in that respect making film has been a journey, as in a way every film should be.

No information on a Portland screen yet, but I will update this post when I find out.

 

Now, Summer

Well I’m back! It’s been an incredibly amazing week and I think I’m sitting down for the first time in six days. Thank goodness for Jess who picked up all the slack while I was preoccupied (and brought me iced tea as I sweated in silk.) So many fun things happened around here, the Faux Museum and ArtFile?! Some good stuff.

Speaking of, can we talk about our friend Sarah over at The Green Dandelion for a minute? Not only did she create an amazing backdrop to our special day, but the girl is hot right now. She’s over on Style Me Pretty today and will be working with Union/Pine for their July Association dinner. She has promised an interview with Duplex, we might give her a break and wait till her busy summer season is wrapping up, but we are holding her to it.  Now for some lovely photos I stole from her (find more on her website):
