Art Observed (Dreamin’ and Drivin’)

This Week: Why not, you text everywhere else right? If you see something, say something. Turn that frown upside down. The car is a perfectly poetic place to die. It’s never too late to change directions, but hurry, cause no one lives forever. – TD

Art Observed (Denouements, Dead Ends, and Intermissions)

Some of these pictures are honest glimpses at moments I’ve had or places I’ve been, while others are staged for their drama or to convey a certain mood, and most are taken with my cell phone camera (a.k.a. faketography). This week: Play possum, always look on the bright side, watch your step, and don’t get captured. – TD

Art Observed (Going Places)

This week: Always almost there. A blurry image tells more than you think. “Suggested Donation,” means never pay more than 1 cent to get into The Met. A broken toilet can still be used (just don’t flush). – TD

Art Observed (Opening Salvo)

Artists have a responsibility to indulge and nourish their ideas, no matter how insignificant they may seem at first. This weekly blog post, Art Observed, is one of those ideas. It seeks to function as both an abstract, non-linear diary of sorts, and as an exercise in observation and image curating. My artwork relies heavily on the juxtaposition of images, their cohesiveness and contradiction, as well as the conclusions that the mind reaches when forced to reconcile the two. For the most part, I will opt to let each set of 10 images speak for itself, but will include some brief commentary if I find it necessary or illuminating. – TD

“Source” New Work by Mike Germon & Truett Dietz

If you happen to be in Atlanta tonight, this is where you should be. Saw the opening preview last night [which Eugene Marten read at, from Firework, brutal] and it is gorgeous and exciting show. At Beep Beep Gallery 8-11. If you are not in Atlanta, you can also check out more of their work online:Mike Germon | Truett Dietz.

Here’s a video of Germon trying to build a ceiling-high tower of books, which didn’t last, and in the show is altered to a kind of book pyramid:
