He also works under his alter-ego Truman Couture. The Flames Flamed Higher, another neon.

EXHIBIT OBSERVATION NO. 4  LEVITATED MASS / MICHAEL HEIZER  LACMA  JULY 22, 2012 LOS ANGELES      This granite 680,000 pound boulder [megalith: a large stone marker used to mark a ritual space] that took 43 years to find was commissioned by LACMA.    If you hate it I don’t care. Feels like a 60’s minimalist monument inspired by a caveman. Desert transported to an urban desert. Land Art manifested. Beautifully dangerous.    Figures that Michael Heizer is reclusive.

EXHIBIT OBSERVATION NO. 3  BUILDING / LEANDRO ERLICH  THE 104 [CENTREQUATRE]  JULY 13, 2012 PARIS    Who knew that an enormous funeral home [temple of death] in a gritty hood in Paris could be so alive.

EXHIBIT OBSERVATION NO. 2  THE KING’S LIST: IMPORTANT / UNIMPORTANT / BARBARA STEINMAN  OLGA KORPER GALLERY  DEC 3, 2011, TORONTO    She is important. Montrealer Barbara Steinman has won about every award [including the Canadian Governor General’s 2002 in Visual and Media Arts] and has exhibited in many biennials [Tokyo, Sau Paulo, Berlin Venice, and Cologne].    No wonder that she is represented by Olga Korper.    Funny the blonde ended up in the middle, not choosing a side in this debate.
