Richard Jackson, “Bad Dog”, 2013, Fiberglass, Orange County Museum of Art
Born in 1939, Richard Jackson has been a pre-eminent figure on the American art scene since the 70s and is influenced by both abstract expressionism and action painting. As part of his retrospective at the Orange County Museum of Art, Jackson had installed “Bad Dog”, a giant temporary sculpture of a black labrador “urinating” yellow paint onto the side of the museum.
The sculpture of the giant naughty pup leaving its golden mark on the building is made of 52 digitally cut pieces of fiber glass and composite materials that were assembled on-site. Once the structure was intact, Jackson entered the sizable sculpture with a bucket of yellow paint to be splattered on the wall. Now, the mechanized sculpture squirts a stream of yellow paint on its own. It is one of Jackson’s many “painting machines” that excretes pigments in an unusually creative fashion.
This blog is a refugee and a survivor of the Great Tumblr Inquisition of December 17th, 2018. I am gay artist, who received training at the Rhode Island School of Design, and now, a retired high-end fine art framer living in Maryland, USA. My interests and studies in life run a wide gamut from art to history and from the scientific to the esoteric. I have been building this blog of images and texts for the last eight years. My wish is that my posts pique the interest of viewers and encourage them to experience more.
