David Edward Linn

I saw the work in David Linn's 2006 series at the Frey Norris Gallery in San Francisco. It's still on my mind. I need to scare up a bunch of money somehow because I've often wished for a bigger apartment to hold more books, but that was the only time I've ever thought seriously that I wanted a bigger apartment so it could hold more art.

If you're looking at the sample I put in this post and asking yourself is that really about what I think that's about? then a visit to the work samples on David Linn's website is definitely in order. The answer is a resounding yes.

Picasso's Guernica is the most moving painting I've ever seen in the flesh. Linn's The Archer is second.

Update: Sculptor Lorenzo Quinn seems to be working the same side of the street.

I still like the guy with the flames in his hands. Doesn't show as well online - but in person, I loved it.
