Hey Little Lost Tiki,

Wow...that was excellent research on the Eric Fischl, "Sleepwalker." How did you make the connection? Are you just familiar with Eric Fischl's work, or is it a pretty famous piece that most people recognize --except me.

I asked Toe about it,but he thought it was Longo...
I knew it was the guy who did the "reclining spread eagle nude lady with little boy stealing her purse piece"
but forgot the name..
So we googled Robert longo and looked, but i KNEW it wasn't him!
Toe said it was,but my spider sense was tingling
then a voice in my head said Eric Fischl!
So i google imaged it and BAM!
there it was....

kind of a bigToe coaxed artist savant experience
happens everyday here at work!

and it IS a pretty famous/iconic piece for us art geeks out there....


GO SHAG!

His work appears to be developing a Hieronymus Bosch feel. In fact, I think I even remember him mentioning Hieronymus Bosch's name a few years back when he spoke in Laguna.



I'm going with Tiki Shaker. Jheronimus Bosch.

Bab's even has painting that reminds me of Bosch.

Hmmm.

I use SHAG's work to add whimsy and fun to my world.
Looking at his serigraphs around the room makes me smile.

His new direction is great for him as an artist,
even if it moves him to a bleaker place that (too) many
in the lowbrow movement already inhabit.

It was also, most likely, inevitable.
Every artist wants to be respected and taken seriously,
even if they are wiping their tears with thousand dollar bills.

I like the new work, but I am not sure how eager I am
to purchase serigraph reproductions and display them
on my walls.

Jim Carrey is good, no GREAT, as a dramatic actor and artist.
Seeing him in Doing Time on Maple Drive
proved he has the talent for it, and followed that
with several other good dramatic turns, not the least of
which were Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
and The Truman Show.

But it seems folks STILL prefer Carrey when he
is making them smile and laugh.

Now he seems to have settled into doing both.

I hope Josh does, too.

I will be buying the new book for Autumn's Come Undone
and I am eager to see the work, but I suspect there is going to be
something of a pre-2010 fan base (and collector market)
and a post-2010 fan base if this shift in tone is
reflected in most future works.

I still say "Bravo!" and bring it on!

you sound like my Grandpa though, "a Surf Band show"
ha ha ha.

and actually I was home sick.


but it was an event, if people knew about it,
they should have put it in events.
my friend Dave went, he said there is actually some tikis in some of the paintings.

I'm all for a new Shag chapter but I really want to see a new Shag book and I'm not talking about the dozen he has out right now.

The economy is tanking, and galleries are going under right and left. It's bad. Out here in Hawaii it's double bad for galleries. Most artists are changing their style to find something that will sell.
SHAG is doing the exact oppisite. He HAS something that sells... and he's changing to something else. Something that is sure to not sell as well as his happy hip style - what he's known for. Wow, that's brave.

Aloha Tiki Tribe -
If you have not, go listen to the latest podcast of "The Cocktail Nation" Koop interviews SHAG about his new show - the the darker more personal turn it's taking. I thought it was a very frank and refreshingly honest few words from a art icon who is ... well I think feeling the weight of his own fame.

OK, I WISH I had the kind of problems that SHAG has, but he's a very important part of our subculture and I was impressed with his non-happy -every things-just-fine response.
