painT at The Standard, Hollywood
the works of Gregory Siff and photography by Ingrid Mellor, March 30th, 2010
THE EXAMINER called me "GREG STIFF",
a name that will live on in infamy.
While promoting the show I was issued a citation for trespassing and soliciting when handing out art flyers at the W Hollywood Hotel after attending their bar for drinks!
THANK YOU Jenni Boelkens, the ART DIRECTOR of The Standard, for being by my side, giving me free creative range, and an expert eye. The show displayed in the lobby looked like a mini MOCA exhibit, complete with the live model in the box installation. Three paintings were purchased, the proceeds being donated to
There are still some paintings available for purchase, drop me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, for availability and I will send you a price and works list. The turnout of friends and support was incredible. After the show I walked home with a full fist of jasmine and a stomach full of love that night. I thought about Vincent on my walk back home up the hill, how he had only one friend his brother Theo, how he never had an art show that he could be at and have peopleFEEL his work I thank God for bringing this night to life, the alternate universe in his mind now actually exists and took place. My friends, THANK YOUWITH ALL MY HEARTFOR BEING THERE. The next step, another script revision. Then we walk the walk. with a handshake and a smile, Greg
