Last Friday I attended the gallery opening for Terry Richardon‘s show Mom Dad. I still can’t decide what was cooler: seeing intimate portraits of his family, a cool video of his mom on a bike, personal notes on the wall, or the floors covered in loose photographs. If you’re in New York from now until December 4th, I encourage you to go to Half Gallery and take a walk down memory lane . . . Terry’s lane, that is!
After a life-changing journey to Rajasthan in 2008, artist Karen Knorr wanted to celebrate the visual richness found in the fables, myths and stories of northern India using sacred and secular sites to highlight the caste system, femininity and its relationship with the animal world. Interiors of palaces, mausoleums, and holy sites were photographed with a large format camera and a variety of animals were photographed separately in sanctuaries and zoos. Knorr combined the two elements, fusing high resolution with analogue photography. The result is an impressive and spellbinding series I hope to see in person someday.
Supakitch and Koralie have done it yet again with their newest mural, Euphoria, which was made for the exhibition Metroplastique in Paris. The amount of layers of paint and the freehand drawing of the lines is mind-blowing!
