John Seed: Early Blogs
In the past four years I have written nearly 300 blogs about art and artists for the HuffingtonPost. For the benefit of those of you who are new to my blog here is a selection of early blogs that set the tone for my later writings.
My recollections of meeting and working for Jean-Michel Basquiat in 1983
A profile of the artist Jon Swihart and a discussion of his passion for the works of a 19th century French academic master.
A long essay recalling a Philip Guston drawing I once owned, and my research into its meaning.
One of the many blogs featuring studio and palette shots of contemporary artists.
A profile of painter Anne Harris, one of my favorite artists, and a blog that said what it needed to say without rambling on and on as some others have done...
A tribute to my mentor, Nathan Oliveira.
Two artists you normally wouldn't think of together, but there were more connections than you might imagine.
A humorous allegory dealing with some serious cultural issues.
My challenge to museum taste and a list of contemporary representational painters I admire.
