Julie’s new exhibition “Your Fly is Open” opens this Saturday, the 25th of May, at Stedelijk Museum s-Hertogenbosch and it’s going to be pretty rad. We also have a film trilogy there, projected upon 3 peripheral walls, which is super exciting too!
Here’s some more info- and I will be posting more on this soon. Thank you Julie! And thank you Hannah, Gisele, Matty, Michelle and Serena.
– Hands, skin, elephants, the sun during sunset, the sun when it’s white, the sea, the open roads and the open horizons, airplanes, the silence of sleep, wild music, dogs, the blue color, New York, the land where I was born- Athens, roses before they bloom, childhood as a place, drums, tree bodies, ballet, liquid pigments, poetry and words and hand-lettering, the sound of pencils when I am writing, kisses, darkness and the female neck. –
May inspiration and updates on my canvas on tumblr. Come over and say hi!
Samantha’s grace, ease and charm best personify what I feel are the feminine qualities I am drawn into- the essence of poetic, strong women. I am currently editing a short film we did together- all of it is black and white, grainy,with the andante piano of Shostakovich.
I drew inspiration from this film by Arber Sefa, whose pace is stunning. I also had this gem in mind, but we were missing the white parrot.
Yesterday, we went to see and film Ryan’s new work at the Frieze Art Fair in New York‘s Randall’s island. Above, you can see a couple of the fresh artworks exhibited at the Team Gallery’s welcoming booth.
Life Adjustment Center, Inc. is family, happiness, wilderness, love.
Next is, Frank, Strange and moi, laughing at Marc who jumps around with the cat’s toy and the camera to take our picture.
More to follow !
I can’t say much yet, but lately I have been working on the art direction of a very exciting newborn project. The diptych above, which stands out from the very initial moodboards that I am preparing at the moment, is only a little hint!
This photograph of Emma is part of my new body of work. The images I am currently working on feel as if they are bringing together all the things I carry within me from growing up in the brightness of Greece and the things I learn from working in this Life Adjustment Center that NYC and Ryan’s studio is for me. It’s been a first circle, a personal wild ride, and hopefully that’s just the beginning. I want to show you. I will, soon.
My shoot with Maria, theatre director and actress, was completed just before an April thunderstorm made New York city a rainy place that day last week. This is our last shot together- all the others being gentle and bright during the day, and this one being darker and mysterious because of the furious weather- thunders et all above us.
Cherry blossoms everywhere- I feel so content. Brooklyn, April 2013.
