While visiting relatives in the Twin Cities, I decided to chase down some old haunts on the West Bank, having been a student at the U in the 60s. I stumbled into Minnesota Funk at the K. Nash, and, for the most part, found it well worth my time. I was startled to see such short shrift given to Sanford Resig's work. I thought it was by far and away the "best of show," and truly funkier than anything else there. I am wondering if Ms.Abbe actually read the painting titles next to each piece, all of which lended the artist's sharp wit to these well-executed pieces...so appealing to the eye AND so much fun. I urge you, Ms.Abbe to take a second look and perhaps allow yourself to be transported by Resig's "playful" art. I am hoping to see his work in the Seattle Art Museum sometime soon!

I find that I agree with the previous comment regarding Resig's work. I always ask myself why I like a piece of art and the answer in this case is because unlike most - this art appeals to both sides of my personality. My professional engineering side, (the perfect symmetry and linear aspects, as well as the texture of rich colors blended painstakingly without flaw) as well as my musical and artistic side because of the subject matter chosen and presented with droll humor and wit. My eye was first drawn in by the lines and bold color - but then I became charmed by the originality of each piece.
