02 Apr Unrest, Dead Studio & The Soft Moon
A busy month just before what seems to be an even busier one. An acrylic mutated fragments of Unrest exhibition, dead studio session and white light abyss of The Soft Moon show in Budapest.
The U N R E S T exhibition seems to get its shape more and more each day. I initially planned it for last autumn, then it got moved to May 18th (Full moon), but some new ideas and opportunities made me postpone everything until the upcoming fall. Anyway, you can see some finished work
here, most notably the new stuff I did with Boy Harsher and edits of The Soft Moon portraits from St. Agnes.
Jae told me she finds the edits ‘scary’, I told her it probably has something to do with repeat-watching ‘Lost Highway’ days before meeting them (haha).
I did a commissioned shoot for a fashion brand the other day and while models were changing clothes I wasted my time doing this. But like I said
earlier, if you give it a pretentious name it suddenly becomes a ‘project’. It’s internet after all, we’re all guilty here… So here’s DEAD STUDIO.
Finally, I went to Budapest to give Luis physical versions of U N R E S T photos / paintings and see The Soft Moon show and I could write forever about what makes them so great live so I’d rather mention some little fragments which take things to a whole new level; like extending the ‘…this knife…’ section in ‘Like A Father’ and repeating it numerous times or the screams at the end of ‘Dead Love’. I didn’t take photos because I wanted to experience the show but I have these two, and I like how they make sense in a context of Luis’ music; steering between abyss and light, sometimes interchanging them because you can’t have one without another, and sometimes one leads into the other.
