The Micronation of Dubz

Dear Dubz, I loved your show. The shadow masses exorcised verbal whims and gave me remnants of ghosts, huts and robots. The sculptures were like actors in a stationary theater, but didn't negate the paintings or relegate them only to background. It was like they expounded on each other instead with the sweatband rhyming with skittle-colored paint swooshes. Who else could accomplish such humor and still not undermine the heroic desires of paint. I am excited. There were echos of Mad Max and Escape from New York - movies from the past that envisioned apocalyptic scenarios in the future. Future past was enacted with swift and sure decisions. Black and rainbows give me feelings of hope and menace. I believe you are the druid of the discount sections.

I love you Dubz. I saw your show with the FB and we both enjoyed it very much.

I am finishing up my stuff for Miami. Holy Crap am I unable to tell what's good and what's not anymore. There is no way to tell, I just keep going until I get foamy in the mouth region. I am headed to Miami the weekend of Oct. 21. Dubz that is the day of your opening in Atlanta so we can't come, sadly, for we would have liked to. I wish we could have live feeds to each other that night.

dubz said...

hello mm. thank you for this. thank you for seeing the things at the place and for thinking about them. i knew it was a risk putting sculptures with paintings, as people always find fault with one or the other, but i did it anyway. they are all there together keeping each other company. this is what i wanted. otherwise it is a lie in my shack cuz they live on top of each other and inbreed all the time and have sex without protection.

let's send each other fone pics and txt msgs and facsimiles that weekend. i wish i could go to your show. i want to live feed.

hi, yes dubz, we enjoyed it your show very much. we talked of mad max and apocalytic times, the moon, motor parts, etc. we really responded to the physicalness, the fearlessness in the paintings. Black. I could feel the contradicitons and struggle and the thinking in the presence of the paintings. There is an intensity there that is compelling. The work is very strong.

I just saw the paintersnyc from yesterday...pretty much a thumbs up! right on.

FauxFairy here. part time butler, part time stalker.

MM, when you posted this i was smoking a cigarette whilst thoughtfully looking up at your window. (wondering if you were there, almost ringing bell to find out) Thought it might be rude. hten i thought perhaps I'll yell like a trannytute and make you look out, then wave.

Woah update from tha Fbee via tincan...uncle was back too?? you get up sorta early?? Shoulda! I could've fed you from my garagey hideout ful of crafty service breakfast nuggets.

dubzy said...

BTW corny - by saying you can wipe my ass i meant that i love you. i hope this came thru.

mm, i wish i could see your shack things. i bet they are transendental as usual. you're my hero.

Corny said...

The Capt'n said...

Micronation...or Coronation?
You be the judge.

MM said...

GOod point Capt'n. Maybe both.

Oh my leg hairs I am almost done with the paintings and drawings. I just have to pack them up this morning and then that's it. Done. Finally. Yay. And then I am going to post images. I am sending down 11 paintings and 10 drawings. It's the biggest show for MM ever, I don't know if all the work will be hung but still, 2 rooms, one is pretty big so I am excited. Must go shower scum off skin and get back to the shack.

slothy said...

Regi Primrose remembers said...

Dubz is my super hero but the sticky glue super power does not work as well as the steel spike through the lobe. Regi is losing confidence in Dubz's superhero strength. Dubz, dont become influenced by cheap Chinese import super powers, stick with the all-American know how.

Regi will you lube my bunghole and teach me the ways of life unknown to mortals?

USB said...

Dear MM:
Hope all the stuff is packed, and you can return to the land of the living..

The Capt'n said...

I'm so excited, and I just can't fight it. I'm about to lose control, and I think I like it!
MM, I wish I could see the giant two-room installache in person. Instead I will wait excitedly for digital display.
Btw, nice going, champ.

peeds said...

i just saw the AiA article on corny... and it mentioned Mountain Man!!! wow... weird. i haven't seen any blogs in the art magazines before.

i liked that pink drawing she had at the front..

MM said...

Hi. Me miss you too. Me have blockage in the groin that obscures hands. Hands are stuck in folds of giant sausage style swollen groin. It is almost black.

Julia Childs said...

MM you must remove your hands from your groin area. Otherwise yeasty gunge grows in the folds of unknowing baking the breads of badness. Believe me. Not even Gin can help.
