An American artist in Paris...

On Saturday, among the Nuit Blanche installations that I visited, I also stopped by the Brooklyn, a bar located in the rue Quincampoix (near Beaubourg) for the opening of an exhibition (Lost for words) by Matthew Rose. Matthew is a great American artist who's been living in Paris for a long time; his work is mostly made of collages. Check it out here.

  1. He certainly looks like quite a character!

  2. Ah, the artist's life! He's leading it the way so many of us would like to.

  3. It was a fantastic opening and a gift to have Eric drop by to see the work, share a drink and a yak. Yes, the artist's life, but a lot of work, too. Best, Matthew Rose

  4. Just returned from a two-week visit to Paris. So many interesting things to see and do there .... it's mind-boggling. Have been reading your blog for quite some time. Still a novice on my new little iPad, but can't figure out why it will not let me download parisdailyphoto.com so I can view every day. Do you have any suggestions you can impart in a few words?

    1. I just opened it in Safari, then bookmarked it. Voila.

    2. Thanks, Alexa. I'm very new to my little mini-iPad. Once I turned off Bluetooth, then it opened in a flash on Safari. Bear with me .... I probably pushed a few of the wrong settings when I recently set myself up to connect with the world back home while I was recently in Paris. :-)

  5. I like Matthew's work (and a bar called Brooklyn sounds like my kind of place). :~}
