Good-bye JJ

Well, it took me the day before the show closed, but I was able to go see the Jasper Johns show at the MMOCA yesterday. It was a great exhibit, showing about 100 prints spanning from Johns start in the 60’s until today. It was very interesting to see his thought process evolve with several of his major themes, such as targets, flags, and numbers/colors as well as experimentation with the printing medium. I personally liked this part the best. It had a much more textural feel and you could see how Johns was riffing on a subject. I feel like it would have complemented the Gray show that is currently at MOMA in NY. All in all, a great way to spend a blustery afternoon.
