My Photo

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Wow. What a great reason for celebrating.

Wonderful photos and writeup, Beth. We wish we could have been there, especially to see his work closer - it looks great, and his statement is very interesting! Please give Jonathan our congratulations again.

Thanks, Jan!

Thanks, Marja-Leena, I'll tell him! (The statement was actually written by the curatorial staff; J. never writes in art-speak!)

Congratulations to your husband! What a delicious and exciting evening!

Hey Beth. Thanks for sharing the photos. What a great honor for Jonathan. I read the official write up several times but would love to hear Jonathan's description instead. I'd love to know more about his techniques in creating such a large print. What is he using for a camera these days? What other projects is he working on? How's the book coming? Give him my best and congratulations!

Bravo Jonathan! The photo looks terrific and the museum curators should be proud to have an example of his work on their walls. I'm so glad he's in this show and trust there'll be many more. Thanks for this excellent glimpse, Beth and I hope you're both still celebrating. That banana split is the biggest and most delectable I've ever seen!

Wow! The photo is beautiful as well as thought-provoking. Tell J congratulations!

I got a kick out of reading the curator's description--especially the last sentence--definite "artspeak." Your description was so much more lucid.

I can safely say thats the greatest banana split i've ever seen.There is a kind of delicious feeling to going overboard from time to time.Very nice post thanks

I thought Pollock and Dali were both dead, but they are now obviously collaborating in a cafe in Montreal. Interesting picture by Jonathan...geologically unforgiving on the right, an echo of that on the left, with fragile and fleeting disappearing into the maw. Congrats on the recognition...glad you had a great night!

Fantastic! So wish I could have been there. Would love to hear from Jonathan about the picture - and the whole event from beginning to end! but perhaps the picture says most of that anyway. Huge congratulations. And yes, how on earth is a print ten feet long made?

So a banana split may be a banana shared, but a banana shared is always a banana split.

Hearty congratulations.

PS In that last, tortured sentence, methinks, the curator's "mutually" is redundant.

Not judging! And he presumably a francophone? But then perhaps Canada ameliorates that tendency so strong in French francophones.

By the way, I know I haven't commented for a week or so, but I was surprised to find the drawbridge down and being forced to apply for my laisser passer all over again. But it is, I suppose, a minimal test of intelligence and a small price to pay for the privilege.

Fantastic! I'm so happy for both Jonathan and you.

Even the picture of the photograph draws me into those spaces in the intersection.

This is all very wonderful. Congratulations!
