Two years ago, sculptor Hanna Eshel was looking for a roommate and placed this ad on Craigslist. “I didn’t want to explain my loft; you just have to see it,” the 87-year-old artist said of the apartment where she lived and worked since 1978. Filled with climbing houseplants, simple wooden furniture and, most profoundly, her art — abstract paintings and hulking sculptures made from Carrara marble — it’s a place that time forgot. For nearly four decades, she chiseled and sanded away in quiet obscurity, apart from a few small shows. “I had no interest in promoting art,” she says. Besides, the sensuous, minimalistic forms of her work were not necessarily in step with the current trends. “There was Pop Art and Op Art. I didn’t follow the fashions.” (via Legacy | A Love Eternal)
Circa 1948 is Stan Douglas’ new collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada. The project comprises an interactive art app for iOS devices that provides a window through which the user can visit Vancouver during that period of social and economic change.

The objects presented in Source Material exemplify the material foundation from which creative work is made today.
Source Material – April 8 to 12, Kaleidoscope Project Space, Milano – presents the objects, keepsakes, and references that have had a pivotal effect on the work of fifty-four creative minds from the fields of architecture, art, cuisine, design, fashion, film, and music, such as Erwan & Ronan Bouroullec, Thomas Demand, Konstantin Grcic, Jürg Lehni, Mike Meiré, Mike Mills, Harsh Patel, Benjamin Sommerhalder, Wendy Yao, etc… Found within the contributors’ everyday working or living environments, these objects are stepping-stones for the creative process.
Noon is a magazine concerned with art and commerce. It’s heavily image-based, with a focus on print quality and production values. The content is curated critically as a whole; there’s no placeholder material and there’s a real respect for the contributions. NOWNESS described it as “a seemingly disparate collection of artists” which sums it up well.
The magazine is print-based only. Things can often get lost on the internet, or inversely you stumble upon them by chance. The decision to make a print magazine rather than online was a reaction to this in certain ways. I wanted to produce something that people could rest on, rather than flick through at relentless speed before moving onto something else.
Excited to launch my edition with New York based Whisper Editions, founded by the lovely Judith Puckett-Rinella, Photography Editor (Previously for Vanity Fair and The New York Times/T Magazine). Check out “Dunlevy Street” and “Starling” here: https://whispereditions.com
"Dunlevy Street" + "Starling"
An extremely limited and exclusive set of two photographs by the fine-art photographer Jennilee Marigomen. One photograph depicts a foggy window in a cafe on an overcast day in Marigomen’s native city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The subtle blend of pastels are echoed in the second photograph, of a small starling whose iridescent feathers seem to glow. Rich in detail, both images are captured with the exacting eye for nuance, color and the magic of the everyday for which Marigomem is fast becoming internationally recognized. Marigomen is an award-winning emerging photographer, and her first book, “Second Nature,” published in 2011 by the Paris-based Je Suis Une Bande de Jeunes, has already been added to the Artist Book Collection at the MoMA Library. Each photograph comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

Dressed for Space Invite
Influenced by friend and musician Robert Alfons (Trust), Seth Fluker’s version of “Dressed for Space” is a study of sound through figurative and abstract imagery. Floating between familiar and forgotten landscapes, Seth’s portraits of Robert depict a parallel world of affecting soundscapes and atmospheric melodies. Played on a continuous loop, these euphoric, synthpop compositions were a direct inspiration to Fluker’s digital manipulation process.
