Richard Meyhew at SFMOMA
I came around a corner in SFMOMA on my way to some other gallery and was stopped dead in my tracks by this newly-hung trio of paintings by Richard Mayhew. I stood there staring and grinning like an idiot for quite a while. I cannot get over how much I adore them. I wasn't previously familiar with Mayhew's work. How? Why not?! How did I not know about these things that fit one hundred percent perfectly into the art receptors in my brain?! Well now I know, and am on a quest to find more. Word on the street is there's a purple tree of his hanging somewhere at the De Young - a pilgrimage may be in order.
