The Carnegie International - David Shrigley + Paul Sietsma + Rudolf Stingel

David Shrigley

There is an interesting tattoo project on the artist's page, documenting individuals that have had Shrigley's images tattooed on their bodies. While you're at it, check out the rest of Shrigley's site. This guy has a real entrepreneurial spirit.

Artist's sites always give me a greater sense of how an artist perceives themselves. Shrigley strikes me as a man with a sense of humor.

Paul Sietsma Still from "Empire"

It helps if you are nearly as versed as Mr. Sietsema in the theories and influence of Clement Greenberg, the most powerful American art critic of the 20th century, or immersed in experimental film. Many people are. Everyone else will have to get by on the artist's dollhouselike model rooms and his outsiderish, language-crazed drawings. Roberta Smith, Art in Review
There is another Frieze review of Sietsema's work here.

Rudolf Stingel

Okay. Wow. Seriously beautiful.

Roberta Smith review here. Here's one that I am looking forward to seeing.
