The Rose Gallery in Los Angeles presents the surreal self portraits of Japanese artist Tomoko Sawada. For her latest series, entitled Reflection, Sawada “….tackles the issue of identity by questioning the boundary between one’s own appearance and the self-image reflected in a mirror. The dual images in each photograph are presented like twins and while they bear a striking resemblance to one another, a closer inspection reveals how different they truly are.” On view until September 17.

Dear Fate (Jame’s Portrait) by Dana Lauren Goldstein

The Spark by Dana Lauren Goldstein

Louisville, Kentucky–birthplace of bourbon whiskey, the Kentucky Derby, and photographer Dana Lauren Goldstein. Her punk tinged photographs fall in a place between eternal youth and temporary amnesia. She states that her work is “highly influenced by theosophical and neo-plasticist principles,”–yeah, whatever, all I know is that her photographs are fucking awesome.

Jesse McLean, Magic For Beginners 2010, 20 min video

Ten artists are a part of a group show entitled Magic For Beginners at P.P.O.W. Gallery in NYC–including Bas Jan Ader and Olaf Breuning. “Their works concern themselves with an intensely personal present tense, with lives lived and documented in real time. These works are inward, solipsistic, and in some instances, similar to an occult experience or an exercise in ritualized revelation.” Magic for Beginners  is on view from July 28 to August 27.


[MUSIC VIDEOS] Pure X – Easy

Posted July 22nd by in Music

…Video for Pure X’s “Easy,” the first in a series from Pleasure that visually explore the record’s themes of pain/pleasure and agony/ecstasy. In collaboration with director Malcom Elijah the band works with images of numbness and the pleasure of control. These images, in the context of a traditional music video, reflect bleak lyrics in the context of a semi-traditional bright-sounding pop song. Director: Malcolm Elijah.


[IMAGE MAKERS] Michel Comte

Posted July 22nd by in Photography

Fashion house Miu Miu just held a bash at photographer Michel Comte’s 1920s California jazz age mansion. Michel Comte was born 1954 in Zurich, Switzerland. The professionally trained art restorer approached photography autodidactically. 1979 Comte received his first international advertising assignment from Karl Lagerfeld for the fashion house of Chloe and moved to Paris. Work for the American Vogue lead him in 1981 to New York and later on he took residence in Los Angeles. “I have always lived on the edge”, Comte states on his restless persona. “If I no longer have a sense of risk I immediately move on. I probably inherited that from my grandfather.” (Swiss aviaton pioneer Alfred Comte.)
