Nobody's Fool

"Nobody's fool/for Dan Penn & AL" 2010


"Nobody's Fool"
Asia Society Museum

I was so excited when I discovered that the Asia Society Museum just opened a retrospective of the Japanese Artist NARA. I ran over there as fast as I could and enjoyed myself immensely.
Nara spent a lot of time by himself when he was a a child and I guess you can still see this in his artwork,  he can't stop painting mischievous kids and they are all high on the rock music I grew up with, like the Clash and the Ramones.

"Midnight Vampire" 2010

"Dulcimer/For Jean Ritchie" 2010

Installation... a little cabin filled with drawings and with a circus feeling.
Could not get an answer for the title...But possibly:
"Drawing Room between the Concord and Merrimack"

I was able to take a few pictures, but only from the newest collection, but there were Artwork there from the 80's up until now. I managed to take a quick pirouette picture in the 4th floor of the installation (all the rest of them are taken from the 3rd floor) of one of the girls in the cloud pictures (I think, see below)... but I got so nervous that I did not even dare to go back and check the title... 
Still feeling like I am one of these girls I guess, naughty and rule bending... I just don't smoke anymore but still want to rock!

If you want to go back in time and think of the devilish child inside of you, I promise you will enjoy this show. Entertaining, fun and uplifting. 

With love!
