The title Entropvisions is in homage to my mother, the poet and art critic, Harriet Zinnes. In 1990 New Directions published a collection of her poems titled Entropisms, a word she made-up combining entropy - the tendency toward disorder - and tropism - the growth towards or away from a stimulus. Similarly, my short reviews combine entropy and tropism by suggesting growth towards a vision of art from the chaos of the art world. Through the back door, my title also pays homage to my physicist father, Irving Zinnes, whose long discussions with my mom got her thinking about entropy and tropism in the first place.
Bill Scott at Hollis Taggart
In case you missed the glorious color of Bill Scott's exhibition that just closed at Hollis Taggart in Chelsea, here are some photos to brighten your day. With suggestions of gardens ripe with blooming flowers whose colors dance across the canvas, these paintings demonstrate Bill's intense knowledge of color relationships, and his love of life.
