One to Watch: Justine Rivas

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16 Justine Rivas makes magical paintings that come from magical thinking.

Florencia Escudero’s Haunted Honeymoon Suite

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16  Garbage and ghosts are both lonely. Emerging from the trash of porn culture, Florencia Escudero’s sculptures haunt a honeymoon suite, their hollowed-out contours suggestive phantasms, flirting with packaged and plastic notions of hot women and hetero coupledom, but these effigies are DIY recreations of phony fantasies, coaxing sweet dreams from beautiful…

A Chapel for Light: Camille Jodoin-Eng

Plaza by Camille Jodoin-Eng Gladstone Art Hut, February 23-26th, 2017 Interview by Darby Milbrath Video by Brittany Shepherd I like to think about the transitionary nature of a space.

Tess Roby: In View

“Places are fragmentary and inward-turning histories, pasts that others are not allowed to read, accumulated times that can be unfolded but like stories held in reserve, remaining in an enigmatic state” -Michel de Certeau, The Invention of Everyday Life, 1990.  The scale of Tess Roby’s large-format 35mm prints make them immediately compelling, and yet, upon closer…

Cristine Brache, I Love Me, I Love Me Not

Panayiotis Terzis

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16 An engraving on an ancient Mesopotamian cylinder seal depicts a UFO landing on Earth. A Dogü figurine dated 1000 BCE looks suspiciously similar to our modern concept of an extraterrestrial visitor. There are several objects on the planet that support a theory of ancient aliens, or the idea that beings landed…

Joe McMurray: Fashion Explore

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16. Without surfaces there are no depths. Fashion Explorer Joe McMurray lends us his critical eye for this examination of the ensembles of Los Angeles. Just like public health institutions, religious organizations often use fashion to depersonalize their adherents, subjugating the concept of the individual to that of a higher power. Sameness…

Brad Phillips: Bullshit Both Talks & Walks

Brad Phillips’ photorealistic and text-based paintings are autobiographical, figuring his wife in intimate moments, or depicting various phrases that might amuse or terrify him. These are confessional works, expressing dread, absurdity and the complexity of love and domesticity. In turns provocative and erotic, or dad-jokey and sentimental, as a whole his work is confrontational—through his paintings,…
