“So you’re made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?”

―Neil deGrasse Tyson

Greg Gossel's Multi-Layered Pop Pieces

After watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, you may have a hard time looking at pop art and seeing it as a true movement. We even had a discussion right here on theMET whether comic books were a true form of art. Today, I thought I would introduce an artist named Greg Gossel, an artist undeniably inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. Using an array of media involving silkscreen, experimental Xerox copy and transfers, as well as various found billboard scraps and signage, Gossel creates kitschy, colorful art that’s reminiscent of years past with an interesting and modern twist.

Greg explains “the process of creating this new body of work consists of a constant layering of elements, building up the surface, and creating a unique history within each piece; adding new elements, while painting over and obscuring others. Through this process I try to explore the contrast between the mechanical repetition of silkscreen reproduction and geometric elements, with the organic and expressive qualities of hand painting and mark making.”

I want somebody who sees the pointlessness
and still keeps their purpose in mind
I want somebody who has a tortured soul
some of the time
I want somebody who will either put out for me
or put me out of misery
or maybe just put it all to words
and make me say, you know
I never heard it put that way
make me say, what did you just say?
I want somebody who can hold my interest
hold it and never let it fall
someone who can flatten me with a kiss
that hits like a fist
or a sentence, that stops me like a brick wall
because if you hear me talking
listen to what I’m not saying
if you hear me playing guitar
listen to what I’m not playing
and don’t ask me to put words
to all the spaces between notes
in fact if you have to ask, forget it
do and you’ll regret it
I’m tired of being the interesting one
I’m tired of having fun for two
just lay yourself on the line
and I might lay myself down by you
but don’t sit behind your eyes
and wait for me to surprise you
I want somebody who can make me
scream until it’s funny
give me a run for my money
I want someone who can
twist me up in knots
tell me, for the woman who has everything
what have you got?
I want someone who’s not afraid of me
or anyone else
in other words I want someone
who’s not afraid of themself

do you think I’m asking too much?


Ani Difranco, “Asking Too Much”

I was told long ago that the lyrics to this song fits how I thought and wrote.

Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling.

This movie is so pathetic.

Love this movie
