Happy Birthday, naylandblake!



installation/opening/performance, "Something, Anything"
2002
Matthew Marks Gallery, New York

And here's something I made for Nayland's friends everywhere:
a retrospective of as much of his artwork as I could find on the internet.
If your bandwidth is thick enough, click the lj-cut, sit back, and enjoy.



(Please note that this is by no means complete -- indeed, this is solely made up of works created and exhibited since the popular use of the internet and available on the internet -- for instance, the University of California at Berkeley Art Museum has a large collection of his work, but none of it available on the internet as yet.)

Happy Birthday. Haven't been on LJ in a while, so I realized it was your birthday a bit belatedly.

Hope it was as good as LJ implies it may have been :)

Somehow I missed this the first time around. Very cool! This is the first I've seen of your art. Thanks, Thor, for posting it all.

I had not seen this until today but, it certainly gives me a clearer idea of your work. The conceptual nature of much of your work has a resonance I relate to. Again, happy birthday (old man). *smile*

I'm grateful to you for doing this. It was a great pleasure to be able to see images of so much of Nayland's work that I have never seen before. Beautiful.

By the way, would you mind if I posted a link to this page in my own journal? We have a number of mutual friends, of course, but there are other people who read my journal but don't read yours, and I would like them to be introduced to this magnificent body of work.

Since apparently Nayland doesn't mind, please do! -- there's no problem with my bandwidth hosting.

this is my first time seeing some of this work. I was previously unaware of a collaboration between Dennis Cooper and naylandblake. apparently this was going on right around the time I was living in LA and met Dennis through a collaborative group called, "the power of desire" or something like that who were working on AIDS related artwork. I wonder if our paths crossed then...

Happy Birthday, Nayland! Gorgeous as ever! (What unbelievable eyes!)

And thank you, Thor, for sharing this overview of his work. I've been able to see so little of it so far. Now I have amazing things to gaze and think at.

Thanks for reposting this, Jeb! I remembered seeing this but (with hundreds of LJs I read) I couldn't remember where. I'm glad this piece in the DeYoung's collection is once again on display in their new museum!

Oh, and I need his snail-mail address again. E-mail it to me (progbear at gmail blah blah blah).

Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

I've seen his work at Matt's place, and I'm lucky enough to own an NB Bunny, but that's about all that I've seen of his before today.

Hugs to both of you.

Nayland linked to this from his new website - he's an amazingly creative mind.
