I’m delighted to feature Stephen Alan Yorke , who has created an exhibit space simply by observing, documenting, and titling changes in one corner of the world. In Bromley, Kent there exists a ledge on Morgan Road – a paneless brick recession – that frames the littered objects left there by passerbys. Stephen has deemed this small walkway moment the Morgan Road Gallery. The artists themselves will forever remain anonymous, but their contributions become works when infused with Stephen’s titles such as The Many Mistresses of Captain Cola (Parts 1 and 11) and The Trident of Lucifer Jr.
Alexi Worth’s playful paintings have an on-again-off-again relationship with photography, illustration, and art history. The above painting is titled “The Formalists,” and it’s a very formal painting. On one hand the composition is geometric, and on the other the people are wearing black-tie, on the third hand they’re about to get intimate. Is it me or are those panties like a black hole?
Blurring the boundaries between safety and horror, Video Psychedelic Hockey Mask is the perfect film for the hockey fan…and the horror film fan? The one-hour long video features an all-star cast of one goaltender’s mask popularized by numerous hockey goalies and crazed killers. From the creator of Video Pizza, this video features 60 minutes of psychedelia as the mask spins its way to high heaven. This one-of-a-kind experience, produced by Wolf Choir Home Video, is a must have for any person who wears costumes, is preparing to be a psychotic murderer, or who loves rotating things soaked in golden hues.
Los Angeles based illustrator and designer Linda Kim’s work is the stuff of dreams - wind-swept scapes just slightly off-beat of reality. Her inspiration comes from direct observation of the actual world, using as many of her senses as possible to create her interprations. I’m particularly excited to see that Linda binds her artwork into beautiful, well-crafted books that act as mini-portfolios!
Not sure how old this video is but there are some fun candy coated motion graphics mixed in with hipster hangout action in this Uffie video.
And you thought Sharpies were just for labeling boxes and writing notes on post-its. Hollis Brown Thornton has elevated the humble permanent marker by using it as one of his primary tools in his artwork. Thornton also does some really cool things with canvas and paper transfers, resulting in different variations on his original works with worn textures.
A few weeks ago we featured LA photographer Dave Tada and his collection of analog images. Well, last Saturday night, Dave showed up with his Fuji Intax camera at Beautiful/Decay’s Art Works Every Time opening to capture the happenings! Between the live music, the art-adorned walls, the free ice cream, free t-shirts and plenty of free Colt 45, there was plenty of silliness to be had - particularly towards the end of the evening. Thanks for the pics Dave.
