The story behind the Windows XP “Bliss” wallpaper :)
Why should a painter or sculptor who has probably never challenged the rules be an artist just because his title and an art school education automatically make him one. Isn’t art about breaking rules, about challenging existing systems, isn’t it about discovering meaning in things or situations before others see anything in them?? The discussion about whether photography is or isn’t art is dated and of no interest. Your work makes you an artist, not your title.
CURRENTLY : Peter Lindbergh exhibition @ Fahey/Klein until April 19th.

“Grant Mudford deconstructs the elemental components of architecture, transforming the rebar, concrete and stucco of ordinary building sites into poignant statements about frailty and strength,” says exhibition curator Michael Duncan. “He is the most accomplished photographer currently working in Los Angeles: a master of light and composition who changes the way we think about structure itself.”

I have looked closely at the mysterious presence of human emotions veiled in the hands, the essential tools of all artists. I am devoted to the photography of hands as a primary part of my artistic vision over my lifetime. Artists’ Hands highlights portraits of hands, not faces, as another reservoir of personal expression. I choose artists who have accomplished bodies of work. To me, hands are a study of the human soul reflected in the mirror of my camera.
Month of Photography Los Angeles kicks off this Thursday night with Symphony for the Devil @ Mr. Musichead Gallery in Hollywood. Make sure to check out the MOPLA calendar to keep up. We’ll see you out there !
Yet one of the intriguing things about the Vivian Maier this film presents is that, like many artists, she remains finally elusive, someone who was literally all about the work. We don’t know a thing about what drove her or even whether she wanted her images to be seen. When one of the film’s witnesses says, “She lived the life she wanted, a life without compromise,” that seems as close to the truth as we are going to get.
