Art Happenings: NYC: Hermann Nitsch

Here are some snapshots from the live action painting at the Mike Weiss Gallery from Tuesday.

Hermann Nitsch and his assistants are continuing the painting today until 6PM and the paintings will be shown Friday at the opening reception. I am anxious to see how they change from where they were last night when I left!

It was wonderful to see Hermann Nitsch in person. I can only describe him as an absolute character! Watching the assistants dip their hands into the paint and spread the paint over the canvasses was awesome! It looked so satisfying and peaceful and almost like spreading copious amounts of lotion or vaseline over a smooth babies body.

Opening Reception Friday February 19th at Mike Weiss Gallery.
