Felix Gonzalez-Torres
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.

Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.

Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”

this is one of my favorite works ever

Morris Louis’s Monumental Gravity-Defying Rainbow Canvases

To make his series “Veils,” in the mid and late ’50s, the great Color Field painter Morris Louis poured Magna acrylic thinned with turpentine onto unprimed, unstretched canvases. Check out these massive paintings, on view at Mnuchin gallery—and look closely at the top of each canvas, where stains in single hues reveal the complex choreography the artist used to create his layered masterworks.
