Text cut-out from the NY Times art reviews


Inspired by the exhibition "Vivid: Female Currents in Painting" installed at Schroeder Romero & Shredder Gallery, NY, 2010, I began a composition investigating the use of this buzzword. My format sets this review date of January 21, 2011, then works back in linear time of previously cut-up editions of The Times

"That was a vivid sign that"

In referencing women artists, vivid is only used to describe their palettes of bright, jewel-like, or luminous colors.
Male artists have a vivid process, focus, clarity, or personality (with the exception of male Outsiders, Primitives, crafts, or certain styles like Fauves)
