Le Surréalisme, c’est moi!

Posted April 22nd by in Art

Even today, Salvador Dalí’s creative output as an artist, his experimental films, and his unmistakable style of painting exert an inspiring fascination on artists up to the present day. By the early 1930s, Dalí had found his medium and his distinctive painting style. The world of the unconscious and of dreams, melting watches and endless, expansive landscapes, bathed in a cool sunshine, are his recognisable motifs. (READ MORE…)


Icon of 1940s Fashion: Ingrid Bergman

Posted April 21st by in Culture, Fashion, Film

Ingrid Bergman is stunning when when she appears on the silver screen in the 1942 classic Casablanca, and the same in Hitchcock’s 1946 masterpiece Notorious. Bergman was not only an icon of the silver screen, but an icon of fashion in a decade when the world was at war. In the 1940s the fashion houses of an occupied France were struggling with limited resources, a fabric shortage, and the rise of competing American fashion houses. In 1940s style was an experiment in sartorial renunciation – an “expression of circumstances” as opposed to frivolity. In 1947 Christian Dior introduced the New Look collection – a ‘make do and mend’ approach to fashion that didn’t comprise “ideals of beauty, femininity and luxury.” Ingrid Bergman was a life long fan of Dior – her fitted suits,  pencil skirts, subtle accessories, and a slightly androgynous charm helped define the era.

Mein Kulturkampf: Andres Serrano Vs. The Jesus Freaks

Posted April 21st by in Art, Culture, Photography

Piss Christ

Last Sunday French Christian fundamentalist vandals went on an all out attack on a photograph by artist Andres Serranoat the Je Crois Aux Miracles (I Believe in Miracles) exhibition at the Collection Lambert, a contemporary art museum in Avignon, France. The photograph, Piss Christ, an image of Jesus Christ on the cross submerged in the artist’s own urine, was damaged “beyond repair.”  Other photographs were damaged and museum guard’s lives were threatened.  If this was the middle ages Andre Serrano would undoubtably be burned alive at the stake, or…crucified. Religion and culture has always been an oxymoronic, delicate, and oft times violent affair, but spite begets spite and the holy war against sacrilege in art will always wage, and with no real front lines, as well as mass confusion as to who is the real enemy is, will never be won nor lost.

[MUSIC VIDEOS] Teams vs. Star Slinger “Close to Me”

Posted April 20th by in Music

Knoxville, Tennessee’s Teams and UK’s Star Slinger have released a collaborative LP on the Mexican Summer label. The album with its all its delightful crackle includes “six blog-rockin’, booty-shakin’ rippers, culled from vinyl-sourced samples of R&B and modern soul classics and reworked, twerked, and shimmied into the matrix of hip hop rhythms, sunshine, and classy, electro-clipped states of mind.” The album A new music video, directed by Jordan Kim, for the track “Close to Me” is brilliant.

[INFLUENCERS] The Psychomagic of Alejandro Jodorowsky

Posted April 20th by in Culture, Film

Film still from El Topo

With gallons of blood, dwarves, and maimed circus performers, weirdness is almost always guaranteed. Your money’s worth? Not so much if you’re not ready for the holy mountain that is Alejandro Jodorowsky.  A gunfighter on a violent quest for enlightenment, a feverish search for a mythical holy mountain, and a man serving as his armless mother’s arms, carrying out vengeful murders on her behalf, all summarize, albeit briefly, the trifecta of Chilean filmmaker and artist Alejandro Jodorowsky’s surreal and mystical cinematic masterpieces: El Topo, Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. Or maybe they’re a summary of all the alter-egos of the man himself, the cult legend, the auteur of weird. (READ MORE….)
