  • Talking about our feelings: On masculinity, Nirvana, and Robert Motherwell's 'Africa' at the BMA

    Talking about our feelings: On masculinity, Nirvana, and Robert Motherwell's 'Africa' at the BMA
    Robert Motherwell's 'Africa' is a large black-and-white painting of a bridge from the point of view of something much smaller, such as a wading bird. Or maybe, with its sinewy shapes, 'Africa' is more like a very abstracted body, with swinging genitalia. On another glance, the painting is a few large swaths of black and white acrylic paint. Sweeping gestures in black paint start at the lower left corner and form one unified shape, which occasionally bulges as it stretches diagonally across the canvas's 222-and-a-half-inch width. White paint floods in from the sides, butting up to and slightly covering up some of the black edges. It can be hard to really see the painting in the Baltimore Museum of Art's Contemporary Wing upstairs; when I get as far back as I can, standing up against the wall opposite from where this painting hangs, my eye just keeps searching from one side to the other, following that arched shape that droops down in the middle.

    There’s a good chance we’re not alone in the universe. We, the citizens of Earth, have yet to knowingly communicate with extraterrestrial lifeforms, unless our cats or David Bowie are keeping something from us, as we suspect they might be. But...
