No, I'm not talking about that great Marvin Gaye record. I'm talking about the title of this Pedro Barbeito painting that's in the group show, LOVER, at On Stellar Rays. Oddly enough, the painting makes me think of this Prince song. Not a bad place to start. Actually, even better and more accurately, it reminds me of the incidental music that's playing when Prince takes Apollonia to the bedroom in his parents' basement in Purple Rain. Yeah. Much better. And way more midnight.
I've been thinking about it. 32 artists, man. This could have been such a typical summer show, but it ain't. This shit is tight.
