Raymond Pettibon’s writing embraced the expanse of social-media digital technology for his art while allowing a more intimate glimpse at the artist. Between February 2011 and February 2021, Pettibon posted something in the region of eighteen thousand digital comments on Twitter. SCKONTHIS!! is based on the entire transcripts that appear here for the first time. This eclectic collection demonstrates the range of Pettibon’s thinking as he embarks on an artistic enlightenment project. Pettibon’s digital rants reveal the artist in a creative-informal rather than critical-formal mode. The twits cover topics as varied as golf, oral, life, and art history—subjects chosen at random for broad appeal and examined with passion and insight.

LG Williams ‘Almost Fellini’ at The Hollywood Roosevelt

LG Williams 'Almost Fellini' at The Hollywood Roosevelt Felix Art Fair 2021

Image: LG Williams and The Estate of LG Williams™, Almost Fellini (Seven And A Half ), Or, Perhaps It Is Better To Say What’s Wrong With David? Or Haven’t We Done That Enough (For EH Gombrich), 2005, 4 x 7.5”, Tape Measure, Limited Edition of 35.

The Estate of LG Williams™ is pleased to announce a limited edition artwork from 2005 will be presented during The Felix Art Fair at The Hollywood Roosevelt by Los Angeles-based artist LG Williams.

Under-recognized by many as one of the leading California artists of his generation, Williams’s practice (sic) brings together an unlikely range of disciplines to produce works that are as visually engaging as they are conceptually provocative (A+…you just gotta love this intern’s writing!).

Like his Greek and Roman predecessors (a truly gifted and learned staff intern / writer…right?), Williams employs grifting and pilfering as the primary engine for creating creative combinations of forms, materials, and ideas (like whatever! LoL! ). Similarly, sculpture constitutes a major area of his experimentation, and the Almost Fellini (7 1/2) featured above…blah blah blah blah — insert here a few of your own words, sentences and phrases.

Almost Fellini demonstrates that Williams’s intentions are an open quantity for pillaging and profit-taking through which art materials enact their own improvised dance to the bank. The aesthetic results strike a balance between the lightness of spirit, conceptual precision, and radical fraudsterism that define Williams’s clandestine and forgettable approach to art making, and that make his work so impactful and collectable by most art collectors, seasoned art aficionados, and IPO beneficiaries alike.

Meet LG Williams: Artist
April 29, 2021 — SHOUTOUT LA / VOYAGELA — Sarah Abrams


We had the good fortune of connecting with LG Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below:

LG, what is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?

“At the Enchanted Hunters Senior Retirement Village (overlooking Forest Lawn atop the Hollywood Hills), I’ve now scrapped Post-Performative Art—to become ‘The Distinguished AARP Resident of Neo-Post-Performative Art.’ I’m thrilled. By the way, this artistic accolade is one of the most unusual and elevated leisure distinctions found in today’s expansive Senior Living communities. I finally feel I can make my dreams and passions come alive. I’ll tap into my unlimited creative potential after Bingo night in this vital role—just like in the Hollywood movies…”
