This is my favorite commercial viewed during the playoffs and World Series.

For its vivid description of what we see, this is my favorite passage in Peter Schjeldahl’s article on Arshile Gorky in last week’s New Yorker.
Textures of intensely sensitive touch, making forms quiver and squirm, are the most eloquent element in late Gorky.Color comes second, yet it, too, is extraordinary, evoking bodily wounds and inflammations and ungraspable subtleties of nature. Drawing, though busily abundant, feels incidental, like fleeting thoughts of a mind in the grip of an extreme emotion.
