Pam Glew in London | Circus

If you are in London don’t miss Pam Glew ‘Circus’ exhibition hosted by Eddie Lock & Death By Daylight, at Red Bull Studios in London Bridge – runs to December 2.


The british contemporary artist, who is best known for her unique bleaching technique on national flags, was the first one selected to make an Art Star for Ralph Lauren Polo Jeans (more info about the art star project here) and her exhibition is definitely worth to be seen. The way she works is very interesting (she uses dye and stitch to paint, deconstruct and distress vintage materials like flags, brocades and jeans) and the result is incredibly intense. 
And btw, how cool is her working space? So inspiring!!!

Alex Prager @ MOMA NY


I had the pleasure of discovering Alex Prager‘s crisp, boldly colored and dramatic work during my last visit at MOMA in New York. With its vintage, provocative and conceptually slightly subversive aesthetic, that mixes pulp fiction with fashion imagery, Alex’ work immediately captured my attention.  And if her amazing, unnerving shots were not enough to make me desperately fall in love with her work “the exhibition also presents the US première of Despair (2010), Prager’s first film, starring actress Bryce Dallas Howard
According to the artist, it is a “full-sensory version” of her photographs, an attempt “to show the before, now and after of one of my images.”
The four-minute film, with a score by composer Ali Helnwein, is set in Los Angeles. It was inspired by The Red Shoes, a 1948 film about a prima ballerina whose obsession with dance conflicts with her need for love, ultimately leading to her suicide. Focusing on the actress’s face to capture one intense emotion, Prager engages in the construction of images that are intentionally loaded, reflecting her fascination with and understanding of cinematic melodrama.”
Enjoy!

Today’s style fav | 11.23.10

I am not really a white shirt kind of girl and I’m not into long skirts that much…but I think this shot from Ben Rayner for Contributing Editor is rather inspiring. Totally digging the boots…and oh…I love Wang specs and b&w grainy photography!

Ectoplasm

Your wrath lashes out and belted at me in its flow,
It is all too familiar but you never hold back.
I writhe in your accusations and take in all the pain,
Embracing it all like it has been my fault.
Permitting the batter as it blankets me,
Allowing the torment to seep out like Ectoplasm.

Where wings take blood

Totally in love with this editorial by New York and Los Angeles based photographer Brooke Nipar for I love fake magazine.

After leaving NY last Wednesday to heading towards LA, I have spent a few days struggling looking for a place to settle down, at least for a while. This was the reason of my lack of posting in the past week, sorry guys! It wasn’t that easy to find the perfect place but I think I eventually got it! It’s in Venice, close to the beach and with amazing artistic decorations…so inspiring, I’m really in love. It will be hard to leave from here. Pics to come soon.
Love.
