This is the fourth article I've published at OEN with images of Marina Abramovic's works. But she just keeps improving her site at Artnet's Artist Works Catalogues. And I keep returning to her.

In a word, Abramovic is incomparable, as a performance artist and installationist.

So, what's "Abramovic" anyway? Croatian, Serbian? Who knows and who cares? Marina's name could be Russian. Anyhow, she herself is certainly Balkan. And what's a Marina? A place where you keep your yacht, among other things.

Whatever. Marina Abramovic is an extremely good, contemporary artist. So watch these images of her work a while: the humorous, the serious, and the horrible. Enjoy them all if you can, in Wonderment.

* All the images are courtesy of Artnet's Artist Works Catalogues. See here, where it says:

"This body of Modern and Contemporary artists' sites brings insight into the depth and scope of extraordinary artists' oeuvres, and it serves as a research tool for students, faculty, museum curators, researchers, dealers and collectors.

Artist Works Catalogues reflect the dynamic nature of the Web, and our goal is to present a growing body of artists' online monographs. Unlike published print monographs and catalogues raisonne's, these are living catalogues, which will be constantly updated as artists create new works and estates release additional information. Artnet offers these catalogues free to the public as an educational resource. Simply click on an individual artist's image to begin, and check back often to browse new catalogues."

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
