I forgot how much I liked Katherine Bowling (till now.) Her paintings are so dreamy.

Summer's End!

From photographer Gabriela Herman's blog. Lucy Vincent Beach on Martha's Vineyard. Out with a bang!

9th Street

I love how the Jefferson Market Library looks wrapped in scaffolding.

The Ring

The Ring, or "das rheingold" opens on September 27th to begin the Met season. The Met is saying this is the most complicated (and dangerous!) production ever put on its stage. "A new Wagner “Ring” cycle that involves a leviathan set, scenery almost entirely based on intricate computerized projections and a few age-old theatrical techniques." OK, I'm in. NY Times.

The Freebie

If you live in NY go see The Freebie today! Last day in theaters. Watch the (great) trailer here.
"A young couple decides to give each other a night off, no questions asked."
Angelika Film Center New York - 18 West Houston Street, New York, NY
12:00  2:00  4:00  6:00  8:00  10:00pm

*From the Sundance website: The Freebie is an insightful, humorous look at love, sustaining relationships, and the awkwardness of monogamy when the haze of lust has faded.

Thanks brother!

Radical Invention!

My favorite painting from the Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-1917 exhibit at MoMA.

What's with all the screaming?

this is a painting! (i think...)
Another art post. One thing that seems to have remained constant in all my work is the subject of light, and how to form paint to apprehend light.

Hope Atherton
I love this painting by Hope Atherton at the Bortolami Gallery's current exhibition "Redressing."  Definitely check out the show with work by 50 artists. Read this post on their new space (pre-reinaldo.)

Also, Hope is rad.

Guest appearance by...

Our friend sent us a photo from his front row seat at the Proenza Schouler show yesterday. Unbeknown to him was the fact that Terry Richardson was sitting right next to him. Our friend doesn't know who Terry is. How does one explain this (WARNING! VULGAR!)

New Palette

Abandoned Motel in Gila Bend, AZ
Photo by Carlos Moore, "Big C."
Production Designer (and friend) Carlos Moore was inspired by (and asked for a photo of) my running shoes in LA because he wanted to use the color palette (red/blue/yellow) on his new show. In return, he sent me this photo with the attached quote: 
Like you, i'm always looking for, photographing and archiving little moments (one never knows when the perfect palette or arrangement of objects will reveal themselves and solve the design challenge of the moment.)
