David Humphrey's Top Five 

Wicked Funny at the Solomon Gallery

New York artist David Humphrey's wickedly funny Americana-o-rama paintings endow kittens, Dwight D. Eisenhower and peanut butter with an aura of sublime kitsch. His work will be on view through Sat., Feb. 18, at Solomon Projects gallery, and here are his picks for what else is hot:

1) James Ensor (1860-1949): "This screwball symbolist never quits showing ways to be contemporary in painting."

2) wps1.org: "Weekly streams of new music, inspired talk and historic audio material constitute a loose-limbed model for new radio."

3) Remembrance of Things Past -- Marcel Proust: "I finally read this world of a book, then decided to go round the corner and read it again. It causes me to forget to go out, see friends or read anything else."

4) The Metropolitan Museum of Art: "This has been a year of mind-blowing shows, from Fra Angelico and van Gogh to Antonella da Messina and Robert Rauschenberg. It is a place to get lost."

5) Art blogs -- artisticthoughts.blogspot.com, painternyc.blogspot.com, artsoldier.blogspot.com, edwardwinkleman.blogspot.com, corncub.blogspot.com, anonymousfemaleartist.blogspot.com: "They are multiplying and producing a critical turbulence with unseen consequences for both art-makers and mavens."
