David ‘F**K IT’ Choe

I never write blog posts. I don’t even read them – and I can tell you someone else who won’t be reading this.
David Choe.

He won’t be reading this, because most of all he doesn’t care. That’s the most amazing thing about him. He doesn’t care at all. I don’t even think he cares that his .25 % of facebook stock he received for a painting at their original offices in California will make him around 200 million dollars.

The important thing about Choe is that he’s interesting. He’s a really talented artist, but he paints really quickly, in a dirty, wild manner. I imagine its more fun to watch in process than it looks good.

Reel to Reel Mixtape?

The man, Rex the Dog, is killing it again. Coming back to the UK with a hard night of dancing called, BREED, Rex has been putting out mixtapes as promotion for the nights. This is the 3rd of Three mixes he’s doing for BREED 2.

But this time, Rex stepped up and stepped up big! Recording this entire mix using the technology of a Reel to Reel tape machine. Yeah, let that sit in your mind for a second. HE USES ANALOG REEL TO REEL TO MAKE A MIXTAPE!

I really shouldn’t have to say more than the video above. And if you want to cop the whole mix (which is amazingly polished for how analog and vintage it sounds) you can do so below.

Analog just refuses to die. And in a time when everyone is a DJ or Designer, or Developer – physical hand work may be the only thing to set the Best apart from the Rest.

Event: Chain Letter

Chain Letter
July 23 – August 25, 2011
Opening: Saturday, July 23 / 6-8 pm

Chain Letter is a group exhibition based on admiration. Initially conceived by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey in 2006, inclusion in the exhibition is based on invitation by someone who admires your work. Each artist invited then invites ten other artists whom they admire, and so on. This email invite will circulate for thirty days, at the end of which each artist will install their own work on the floor at Shoshana Wayne Gallery.

This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the social nature of the art world. It is the hope of the curators that the response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and admired by their peers.

Earth Bound, Sky Bound

“The photographs are not precious and special, they are just a set of snap shots that are unified by the horizontal line of the horizon. When I took the photographs I was happy and inspired in a cliche way, a took a snap shot of the view to mark the special moment. I did not take them as ‘beautiful photographs’ instead see them a amateur snap shots of ‘beautiful moments’.”
- Daniel Eatock

My work deals with absurdity, dumbness, disenchantment, cult and decay. I am interested in the ways television, radio, web and entertainment culture affect our social and individual identities. I am also intrigued by the position of painting among all the other forms of visual media that surrounds us, and I believe that visual art, in its institutional format, is evolving away from the general public.
