It's a rare occurance when you come across paintings that you really wish you painted, Heffernan's paintings make me feel this way. So magical and lovely, and even though they are very feminine, they don't come off as your typical girly paintings, like Joe says, "they're so good, it's like a man painted them" which i kind of resent but the chauvanist pig inside me has to agree a bit.
Barnaby Whitfield, another Stux Gallery artist that we had to feature. His work is incredible! It's done in pastels too which is quite impressive (i hate working with pastels) I absolutely love the richness of his colours as well as his imagery. It creates that whole attraction/repulsion thing, which is a little off-putting but i like it.
Joe and I saw some of their work at Deitch Projects in NY last year, I wasn't too impressed and so i kind of forgot about them.
But then Joe pulled up some images of theirs and i remembered that they are really great. Armani in jean shorts, c'mon!
Just colourful and funny and fun, and it's just so refreshing to see artists who don't take this shit so seriously.
Check out more about them here
Later that night we ran into THE Anti Christ himself.
Unfortunately he refused Joe a photo with him, only offering to take a picture of Joe.
No thanks, Marilyn!
He looked pretty much like this, all bloated like, and was quite shorter than i thought he'd be.
I'm sure he would have been fun to have a beer with and talk about global warming, the importance of Lady Gaga and other current affairs.
the show had a great turn out. most packed opening i've ever seen.
then THIS guy showed up. Took a picture of Joe's "cock muncher" with his camera phone.
Then Joe got a picture with this cock muncher!
Alas, the circle of life.

i just came across this image i was looking for since last winter. i was searching and regretting that i didn't buy the magazine, but i couldn't even remember where i saw it. Then i came across it through ffffound. Anyways it was British Vogue, December 2008 issue, and they did a whole shoot inspired by Roald Dahl stories. No wonder i fell in love with the image. I absolutely loved Dahl growing up, spent a whole lazy summer reading his books.
Joe and i put some of his stories on my ipod to listen to in the studio. We took a nap on the studio floor yesterday listening to 'George's Marvelous Medicine', boy was it annoying! We were both too tired and lazy to turn it off and just suffered listening to this awful voiced lady tell the story. Sometimes audio books, not so good, the wrong voice could ruin a good story and good lazy studio nap time.
