John Grant (feat. Midlake) - I Wanna Go To Marz


"As news-gathering departs from paper form and is conveyed instead through the television and internet, the newspaper becomes a nostaligic and old-fashioned object. I describe the beauty of the ritual experience of newspaper-reading by describing the paper as a tactile and fragile object in the language of craft. The pieces in this series are entire issues of The New York Times encased in hand-embroidered cotton muslin. I select a photograph from the paper; usually a strong image suggestive of power, leadership or communication; and embroider the image onto the fabric, applying colors in a painterly way and layering line and thread. Portions of the image remain as outline and threads tangle and unravel from the fabric".

In his artist´s statement, McSavaney cites his subject -architecture-and asserts that it embodies the social, political, and economic values of its age. Here, his seven acrylic paintings depict warehouses, factories, and loading bays in south Vancouver. Many of these structures are viewed at night, from back alleys or at the far edge of an expanse of bare asphalt. Even the day-bright images possess an air of nighttime abandonment:
shadows are ominous, the sky is an apocalyptic blue, and no cars, trucks, or people animate these scenes.
Most of Mc Savaney works are in "Panavision" format, signalling their relationship to photography. Althought they are realistic in style, they also evoke the recent histories of geometric abstraction and hard-edge painting, through their formal focus and straight lines and intersecting planes.
Here and throughout the series, McSavaney reminds us that the mostly anonymous and sometimes abandoned buildings he decipts are bound into an economy of production and distribution. Althought far more understated than shopping malls, supermarkets, and big box stores, they skill marketplace-the postcolonial church of overconsumption.

LYELL est sans doute l´une des marques de prêt-à porter que je préfère.
Je vous laisse découvrir les autres collections:

Awhile back some of these photos were circulating the web and people were wondering if they were photoshoped or if this scene existed somewhere. Indeed this was a set built in 2005 by Catherina Scholten for an outdoor theater, in Amsterdam, for Anton Chekhov’s Ivanov. I absolutely love these!


Robe imprimée de chez: LIQUORISH

Après avoir "flashé" sur cette robe, Je suis allée jeter un rapide coup d´oeil sur la page web de cette marque anglaise que je ne connaissais! Et bé j´ai été très surprise et un chouïa déçue dis donc!!!!
La collection est un p´tit peu trop extravagante à mon goût ...
