Found Art: Juicy Paintings by Aponovich

52 weeks, one painting per week, one terrific upcoming show at the Clark Gallery in Lincoln.

New Hampshire painter James Aponovich is clearly something of a neat freak. Every berry, peel, and stem, every dew drop, every edge, is crisp and precise. This fanaticism throws his paintings into the hyperreal category, but rather than shock, his works leave me in awe. Is the world truly this delicious? I hope so. Right now, he’s running the equivalent of an artist’s marathon, painting one piece per week for 52 weeks. In May 2012, the Clark Gallery in Lincoln will present all 52 works in one astounding show. Can’t wait…

Watermelon architecture! I want to go to there.

It’s all good for you.
