“Fire Walk With Me”

A new group exhibition at the CoproGallery running from April 21st  to May 12th  celebrates the 20th anniversary of the film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” curated by Rob Wilson in association with David Lynch.  This is a darker sequel to the exhibition for the original Twin Peaks which was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Twin Peaks series during February 2011 at Clifton’s Brookdale in downtown Los Angeles titled “In the Trees”.

CopraGallery is located in part of what used to be a train station and provides the perfect setting for this new exhibition which will include all the artists from the”In the Trees” show, and will also expand it with an artist reception featuring unreleased music from Twin Peaks and surprise guests.

Go and look at the CoproGallery press release here for more information and lots more previews of the  stunning artwork  like the Jessica Joslin work above and Chris Beren’s “Pale Moon Over Black Lake” below.

wallowing in the stunning wildlife photography of  Vincent Munier

This book [Vincent Munier and Lysiane Ganousse] is particularly beautiful. 

livre white nature

“White Nature is the product of Vincent’s desire to seek out images in inclement weather
and rough places in mist and snow. He is deeply fascinated by snowy white landscapes.
For him white is not just a colour but the sum of all existing colours. White is not just
a cover but a whole world in itself, where you can find small signs of life
in the most unexpected places”.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

Posted on

Despite telling myself I wouldn’t mention much about fashion on here…as despite loving it I don’t tend to follow trends preferring my take on a tried and tested look, and there are many, many people out there doing a far better job than I could ever do, I did keep a small eye on London fashion week.

All I will say about that is Giles Deacon …perfection!Giles deacon A/W 2012

But what LFW did do is prompt me to spend some time re acquainting myself with the exhibition catalogue for  ‘Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty ‘ published on the occasion of an exhibition organized by the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute.

Alexander McQueen: Savage BeautyAlexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010) was one of the most influential, imaginative, and provocative designers of his generation. McQueen saw beyond clothing’s physical constraints to its ideological and conceptual possibilities, addressing questions related to race, class, gender, religion, sexuality, and the environment.”

For the romantics Im avoiding the crass and commercial and pointing at a book with  a perfectly appropriate  – for me –  title!   It’s a beautifully presented book with a lovely ribbon page holder and wonderful photographs both of which are enough for me to be happy before I even get to the content.
It is a “celebration of old things passed down and collected from family heirlooms to flea market treasures – along with personal recipes and anecdotes on how to care for and save things a little past their prime”  It may be a coffee table book but I don’t see that as a bad thing,  maybe I have too much affinity to  “Chipped, Frayed, Tarnished, Faded, Tattered, Worn and Weathered Things”, go find a copy and decide for yourself!
“For the Love of the Old” written and photographed by Mary Randolph Carter,  book image and quote Copyright the author and Rizzoli International Publications.

Flicking through this book found at work and loving the images, and wishing I’d spend more time taking photographs…I have a definate love affair with Black & White that maybe has links with my retro leanings.
