Various and Sundry Things: Conceptual Artist Mel Bochner

Happy President’s day!  I unfortunately do not have today off so please go and enjoy all the sales and sleep in-because that is what I would be doing.  When Jessica and I started this blog we agreed that we could post about whatever was inspiring us.  Well, I was inspired this weekend while cleaning out an old purse this past weekend and I found a pamphlet from the National Gallery of Art.  The pamphlet was from a Mel Bochner exhibit that my husband and I had visited last spring.

Before seeing the his work I didn’t have an idea who Mel Bochner was, but his paintings speak for themselves-literally.  Mel Bochner is an American born conceptual artist.  His paintings were really mesmerizing with all the colors and words selections-sometimes very blunt.  Here were some of my favorites.  Enjoy!

    They wouldnt let you take any pictures. It was the only time I can ever remember the museum having that rule.
