London photographer Jasper James has visited some international meccas: New York, London and Beijing, trying “to get as high up in the city as possible to give [him] an overview and a sense of scale to the size of the city,” and to to combine the micro with the macro- the individual and the cityscape into one shot. Even though I’m in China right now, I’ve yet to see the beautiful same view as he’s managed to capture in these shots.
We got the day off today but here’s some good music videos to keep you going until we come back. Some of it is new, and some of it is decades old, but all are good. Who knows maybe you’ll findsomething new that you like (or hate).
Stephen Aldrich carefully cuts woodcut prints, steel engravings, and other printed epehemra from the Victorian Age to create these sardonically surreal new vistas of the era. Yes, Garret, I like this because it’s Victorian!
He will be showing his work at NYC’s Foley Gallery from September 9- October 23.
One of the upsides to working downtown is the ability to walk to get lunch. I know everyone thinks that we never walk anywhere in LA but I’m here to say that I walk a solid two blocks to get lunch everyday. (Take that NYC!) So this week, I decided to take my trusty digi cam on my trek and see what’s new on our local street art spot. I’m not sure why this corner gets continually covered in posters but there is a new poster up on this thing every damn day.

Jean-Pierre Roy’s insanely gorgeous luminescent paintings might just combine all of my favorite topics. Painted like translucent homages to Romantic pastoralism, they appear to instead catalog mystical scenes of revelation, post-2012 apocalypse. Grand, cinematic, magical, laced with the alien race, these glowing, transcendent Titian-esque tableaus are haunting and inspiring all at once.
If you’re in NYC, his exhibition at Rare Gallery opens Sept. 9 and runs until October 7. I wish I could see these in person!
