I Am Secretly an Important Man

Posted December 19th by in Film, Music

“I Am Secretly An Important Man is a feature length documentary film portrait of Steven J. Bernstein (aka Jesse Bernstein), one of Seattle’s most celebrated voices. His angry, surprisingly fresh, lyrical writings are about sensitive souls, drifters and drug addicts; people alienated by a society that refuses to understand them. He peeled back the ugliness and the darkness of life on the fringe to expose tender and not so tender human feeling. His unique rhythms, filled with humor and pain, were especially exciting when read in his own gravely voice. People packed into theaters, bars and cafes to hear him read and sing.” www.iamsecretlyanimportantman.com

Paul Jasmin: California Dreaming

Posted December 17th by in Photography

A few years back I was lucky enough to be photographed by the iconic Paul Jasmin. It was at a beautiful house in the hills behind Los Angeles and I had to wear a diamond studded purse on my head; it felt ridiculous, but the photographs were beautiful. Steidl is about to release a book of Jasmin’s photography compiled over the last two years entitled “California Dreaming.” Jasmin, who is by most standards an old man by now, finds youth the antidote.  Described as “dreamers,” the subjects captured in his photographs, who have come to to Los Angeles to pursue their careers as musicians and actors, bask in a classic nuanced glamor that only through the eye and through the lens of Jasmin can such be captured.  “California Dreaming” makes the ultimate argument for Los Angeles as a golden mirage of both glamorous aspiration and sunsoaked leisure.” Find it here.

Unseen Egon Schiele

Posted December 16th by in Art


Egon Schiele, Reclining Female Nude with Violet Stockings, 1910.

Artist Egon Schiele was arrested in 1912 and charged with carnal knowledge and distributing immoral material, for which he was cleared, though he served 24 days in prison. That same year Schiele began an affair with Klimt’s model Wally Neuzil, who he later dropped to marry the bourgeois Edith Harms in 1915. In 1917, following his participation in the war, Schiele began to exhibit successfully across Europe with shows in Vienna, Zurich, Prague, and Dresden. When Klimt died in 1918, Schiele became Austria’s leading artist, though he died of Spanish influenza at the age of 28, only months after Klimt and three days after his young pregnant wife. More than forty-five works by Austrian artist, previously unseen in the UK, will be unveiled at Richard Nagy’s new gallery on Old Bond Street from 07 February – 04 March 2011. www.richardnagy.com
