Twin: Geishas Graffiti by HUSH

Hush returns to Los Angeles with a new collection of work reflecting his unique blend of street and cross-cultural aesthetics. Playing primarily with the idea of duality, the exhibition is a carefully calibrated experience of Twin paintings—15 mixed-media woks on canvas. Using the symbolic subject matter of the female form, Hush has produced a large-scale installation in which the gallery walls capture the essence of “action painting” and “pure expressionism” along with traditional elements of fine art.

As a body of work, TWIN explores the nature of duality. By varying his approach to the same image, Hush exposes nature’s inherent polarity. The juxtaposition of light and dark reveals the complexity of conflict and unity—and dichotomies present within the human ego. TWIN is a fascinating confrontation and debate on common conceptions of power, innocence, beauty and sexuality. The collection also represents the blending of the street art aesthetic- as simultaneously destructive and beautiful.

In honor of #nationallipstickday, the very best from my #personalstash… Shu Uemura Lipstick br792 is dark and brooding, just like me. And Vincent Longo Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Costa Fiore is THE red lip gloss every brown skinned lady needs in her purse. (I buy two at a time.)

Wayne Quilliam: Photography in context of Indigenous Australian culture

Series of Aboriginal artist Wayne Quilliam “Lowanna” (beautiful woman) transforms the concept of the body and the earth studying the psychological implications of the human habitat. Wayne’s work is rooted in sensitivity. He speaks of the connection and isolation, loss and discovery and tragic irony poorly designed

Wayne Quilliam is considered one of Australia’s most prominent Aboriginal photographic artists working on the global stage with more than 130 solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Europe, Asia and the USA. He has been awarded what is considered one of the most prestigious Australian art accolades, the 2009 NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Artist of the Year. In 2008 he won the Human Rights Award for his work on the Apology with the Koori Mail and was a finalist in the prestigious Walkley Awards for a social documentary on the block in Redfern, Sydney.

Starting from 10th January 2010 the art place berlin in the Park Inn Berlin-Alexanderplatz will present the large-sized photographies of the Lowanna series. The works will be shown in the context of paintings by protagonists of Australia’s indigenous art, among others Kudditji Kngwarreye and Jeannie Long Petyarre.
