They are upright but should walk on all fours. They dress in their painted on jeans and t-shirts torn. Fed through vegan veggie wraps, wearing their tattooed sleeveless straps. Some are tan and few are clean. Most unshaven and all should be unseen. To not come out in public and maybe that is what they […]

yo globatron citizens, i am reporting from last weekend’s New York City art weekend.  i am tired, so i’m going to keep it short and sweet, and keep my commentary to the photos…I was more impressed with this year’s armory show than I have ever been.  This is the first year I have been and […]

A Simple Plan – Globatron Insurance Company

A thought occurred to me today…What is stopping people from starting their own non-profit insurance company. Given the right number of people, paying half of what they pay now, I am not sure why we couldn’t start a very simple pay-all insurance company. We would have no marketing costs, very few legal fights, and of […]

Gehry Rigging – Critique of an honored architect.

Posted by on Sep 3, 2009 in Art Coverage

Recently I visited Bard College in upstate New York with my family and we parked next to the music center designed by architect Frank Gehry.  And like all people of my generation I was excited to experience a work by this very popular man.  The building’s first impression was very good, that undulating sheet metal […]

New life-size, bonded aluminum sculpture by Emil Alzamora titled “Aegis”. Globatron did an interview with Emil several months ago in August of 2008 here: http://www.globatron.org/interviews/interview-with-emil-alzamora Note from Emil: Aegis is protection, it originates from greek mythology as a shield from harm, often a cloak/shield combined.  I made this piece as a response to the BS […]

Terror attack on Globatron!

Today, in an act of blind cowardice, former contributors James Greene and Mark Creegan logged in and deleted years of content containing his name and the name of Valuistics.  This act makes clear that when a few artists speak openly about art and its relationship with society, in an open and challenging way, those whose […]

Globatron 2008 Wrap Up

Posted by on Dec 23, 2008 in Art Coverage, Globatron

With the year quickly wrapping up, I thought it was only right to do a sort of summary of Globatron’s perspective.  If anything, I believe Globatron has learned this year is that anyone who is actually trying help improve the scene is a part of the solution, and that there is a place for everyone.  […]

Posted by on Dec 22, 2008 in Art Coverage

A Southern style cookout in the backyard of Jacksonville painter Jim Draper at his home/studio.  Finding a home & studio like this is most likely the goal of most young artists. It’s nice to see a mission accomplished, a very nice home/studio, and an artist surrounded by friends and family during the holiday season.  It […]
