Comi Comi…

is a series of notes on art and takes it’s name from the magazine Playmap (1969-1972). Each note is about agitation and the frenzy of being up against it. Notes are also about Japan (but not exclusively). They feature galleries and artists; their stories and schemes; plotting plans, averting disaster, predicting tragedy and prompting comedy. To paraphrase Playmap, “Machi Comi, Michi Comi” is their word on-the-street and my words (and images) around town.
