Dear fellow Americans,
I've finally rejoined you in our country, America and for this I am really glad. I sort of enjoyed my outting to Zurich but mostly not. Zurich is rich and clean and wrong in subtle and entertaining -if you're with friends who have a sense of humor, ways. The trip got good when Leo, Seamonkee and herr Tyson showed up. We had some laughs sneezing chunks of spatzle out our noses at art dinners and the highlight was a trip to Alsace to see the Gruenwald alter. My staunch and trusted confrere, Seamonkee and I contnuing the TV series in our heads which kicked off in Edinburgh a few years back, History on the Move! More on this later.

Here are some picks

Comments:
Welcome home Corny! Love the pictures. Nothing like Zurich circa 1980! Wow, what a big show. I love all the installation shots. Will you be doing a serious of paintings based on the mime? Don't pass up that opportunity. Thank god for dr. Seamonkee and herr Tyson, huh?
 
i know, i think that mime was way pissed. corny, that room you were staying in really totally freaks me out. amazing pics, HUGE show - wow!! welcome home.
 
Hi Corny-only have a sec but Wilkommen back to der homelander, mein freund. Gotta check the pics later tonite. Weeks/Tyson is a power team of fun, huh? Yo, happy pesach.
 
i'm speechless from those pics... shit... that show! all those paintings together like that... not to mention the drawings threading all those thoughts together.... and you really did sleep in the noonie's apartment and eat out of an andrea zittel...fuck, corny! awesome!!!! welcome back.
 
Was that an Andrea Zittel for real? I was wondering about that.

FB that room was SEVERE, Definately not made for humans, however there was foot welcoming heated floors which helped take the fascistic edge off. Still, fuck that.

Words dont exist in any combination I could possibly come up with to express my relief at being home. I LURV you guys, I lurved checking back to the ether to take the edge off. The show felt good to make and I feel reinvigorated to get back to the refinery.

PS, Also, I must point this out because you cant really see from the pics but we sprayed a line of fake bulletholes that goes all the way across the wall of drawings. They look cool in real life.
 
Welcome back Corny! Your show looks unbelievable. Wish I could have seen with my own 2 peepers.
 
mm, let's hijack a plane and go.
 
Let's. I will get the highjacking gear. You make the flying suits. Let's leave in 10 minutes, I am fully ready to exit.
 
I'll help you hijack a plane but will have to jump out once we're safely on route, I just cant go back there unless you pay me a lot a lot of money. I have an exacto knife, crowbar and ski masks, I"ll pick up some snacks because hijackings sometimes take a long time..
 
MM how are you can we get drunk soom?
 
FB is it time to grill hotdogs in your back yard yet?
 
I am needy. that is who I am. The needy one.
 
mmmm hot dogs.....
 
peeds! Beer tomorrow at the met?
 
we could celebrate jesus with hotdogs on sunday.
 
at my house... arthur is away right now and I am planning on a sweats pants bender starting friday at 7pm.
 
Nicole,

I love your work! I am now an everyday blog viewer too. Thanks for your work and inspiration!

Taylor
 
Oh man, I finally saw your pictures. Omg, how beautiful (meaning your show and all you good lookin' hookers.) Wow, bow chicka bow bow.
 
Yea Jesus, sunday is the aniversary of when he climbed out from under the rock? Its all about hotdog bender. If it's too cold to BBQ outside we can get one of those HotDog toasters advertised in Skymall. I'm game! Yea, praise jesus.

Capt'n, it's intense isn't it.

Hey taylor sorry that
your an everyday blog viewer now,
you sound like a nice bloke, please do not waste your valuable time here.
 
maybe jesus will allow a coupla tofu pups for one of his devoted disciples?
 
The only way i will allow a tofu pup is if you bestow apon my holy apparatus a little sucky-sucky. Ok? Also I will arrange so that you can keep your job and laugh once to twice a month (for short periods) during office hours.
 
no, no, i want you to divinely intervene and ram tofu pups into the orifices of the higher ups at the shoppe. don't you grant wishes?
 
go back in your bottle.
 
YES! Beer tomorry for sure. I'm in.
 
Hi Taylor, welcome to the vortex.
 
Poor dubz. you are thinking of my sister, Barbara Eden, just because we both dig strappy sandles and fabrics that breath doesnt mean I'm granting wishes. However, ramming pups sounds fun. Jesus pups are six feet long and as wide as a dinner plate. I hope your higher ups relax easily
 
they have trouble relaxing. i think you will need to force. i suggest a cramming technique much like overloading a washing machine. please do this swiftly, like tomorrow before 10am.
 
okay, so it's supposed to be kind of shitty on sunday but the grill will still work. i have been craving potato salad. we could feed jesus. ihave him in the basement.
 
sorry i've been hooked for a month!

plus the posts are usually small anyways.

Nicole...is there any information about your exhibtion? I couldn't find a website. I am curious about the wall of drawings and the studio table.

It's actually really nice reading a blog that is by a painter who understands all the madness of being an artist and the studio and all that. It keeps me sane. Plus it's so great seeing little sneak peaks of your work and shows and what not. I've sadly never seen your work in person and I wish I was in Zurich!
