Anyone who thinks Dylan creates these pieces purely to make money, doesn't have the foggiest notion of what it means to be a creative person.

That he can make money from them is an added bonus; but it's not the motivation.


I think the Dollar sign was to indicate why the gallery exhibits him, not why he does what he does. Certainly Dylan is far to excentric and not superficial enough to just be interrested in making money.

I am looking forward to see more of the new works. While I never could warm up to the paintings, these collages do interrest me.

oh yes, I should fit that in. but i think this hits higher up on the priority list. I'll have to see if the library is open on Sunday...

Greece! study abroad or a trip?

it'd be a trip with my archaeology prof. and a few other classics people. still not 100% sure i'm going, cause he's going to italy and greece over the summer, and i might go then instead. so, maybe i'll be able to go to nyc over winter break.

hmm, if it's like most other public libraries, probably not due to budget cuts.

thanks Rimbaud!

Isn't it funny that Dylan is doing artwork in the same style he criticized Andy Warhol for?

hmm...ironic perhaps. timing is everything. it provides commentary on both Warhol's efforts and the cataclysmic effects that followed in media and advertising and social broadcasting. that's my first take on it anyway.

I just want to see the Bondage Magazine cover... :lol:

I said it on here in 2011 about the Brazil series about the painting with the lady sitting spread eagle,
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63507&p=999319&hilit=brazil+series+porn+stash#p999319

and I'll repeat it again now a few years later...I want to see Bob's secret porn stash...

I think Bob's opinion reflects the same of a lot of people until they *get to know* Warhol's work. He's the type of artist that grows on a lot of people over time. Nothing wrong with that. I've been a big fan of his for years but it wasn't always that way.

More info on Bob's gallery show. With the larger image in this Rolling Stone article, I am a little uncertain if that is Mamie Van Doren now. What think you all?

That picture certainly looks a lot more like the magazine, than the ones I've been looking at. The pose is perfect. It's the mouth, though I think, that appears so much smaller. Like a Bernadette Peters' mouth.

It looks like Mamie Van Doren. He may have photoshopped the hell out of all the images. I doubt "Mrs. Rosenhorn" is a real person.

See the "Like A Sharon Stone" thread for various thing I found in a search of Mamie Van Doren that linked to various references in Bob's music. (and a link of Mamie Van Doren to 'like a rolling stone' by whatsittoya). I don't think all those connections between Mamie Van Doren and the song titles and other references in his music are a coincidence. But people are going to believe whatever they want to believe.

I think it's Mamie too. Those...eyes...are very distinctive.
