Magnus Von Plessen

Here are some semi-recent paintings from Magnus Von Plessen, a artist I have been enjoying for a few years now. I am fairly certain that all of his brushes or palette knives are flats: I can also say with confidence that Magnus Von Plessen has the coolest name in the art world - I mean you could abbreviate his name to MVP. My initials are "Not Applicable" (NA), but his are MVP - "Most Valuable Player (Most Valuable Painter?)"- there's no comparison.

Minutiae - where you'll find only the most erudite art criticism and commentary.

While cleaning up my studio I stumbled upon the brochure from MVP's show at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005. 'Rider, large' (or 'Reiter, gross' if you will) still blows me away. MVP material indeed.
