This 32 x 24 cm print is now available to purchase through Alexis Hyde’s new fabulous endeavor. Yesterday, we had one significant business-lunch which met conversations on decadent restaurant concepts, puppies used by handsome men to render women the weakest and on Art, evidemment.
I am so thrilled to be part of this project. Browse the site, and buy my prints.

I just had lunch with her and she is so delightful it’s ridiculous. She really let’s me indulge in my weird which I really appreciate.

Exciting news, I have launched my online gallery Hyde or Buy. Some names you’ll know, some you might not but they are all super talented and going great places with their art.
I know there are a lot of online galleries out there and what I think makes mine different is that it’s just a tighter choice. I will be rolling out new pieces every few weeks or so, but will keep it to a minimum to allow for easier perusal.
I really hope you enjoy, it’s been an exciting and scary experience doing this and it feels great to be able to finally share this with you.

Following Nectarine, I am delighted to announce another fabulous collaboration with Tommy Smith.

— “A dark and gritty sound piece for four voices, LOTUS EATERS EP features a vocal cast a talented Broadway actors and literary giants, including include Neil Gaiman(Sandman, American Gods), Reed Birney (Blasted, Uncle Vanya, Picnic)Marin Ireland (Nocturne, Blasted), Mary Jane Gibson(The WifeThe Tenant). These voices are underscored by an incredible array of musical innovators, most notably by Smith’s constant collaborator Reggie Watts (IFC’s Comedy BangBang) and Seattle’s John Osebold (“Awesome,” Delaware). Mastered by sonic wizard Michael McQuilken, with visual imagery by Berlin/LA artist Fette Sans.

Not a conventional performance, Tommy Smith’s “extended play” LOTUS EATERS EP is a hallucinatory audio experience meant to be experienced alone – on good speakers or headphones – in the dark, whether bedroom or hotel or train or airplane or car or other theatre show.”

Read more, and purchase tickets for the performances on January 6th.

Starting September 29th, Los Angeles will know its 53-hour weekend closure of the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass. This will evidently be epic, again, and this time I am in the vicinity.
I recommend checking this site: ARTMAGGEDON for a listing by neighborhoods of art related events during that fateful weekend.
Among them, there is Art Platform Los Angeles and I have a piece on view at the booth of the Berlin based space Infernoesque. The opening is Thursday, Sept 27th from 5pm - 9pm. The Fair runs from Sept 28th-30th, Fri-Sun, 11am - 6pm.

Ed Templeton shot by me for Freunde von Freunden, in his house, Huntington Beach, 2012.

I don’t know if Ed directly came to me and said “Hey, I want to put these up.” I could just tell that the idea was already floating around, and in the beginning I just kind of took myself back from it. I trusted him. I knew he wasn’t there to exploit us. Being with Ed already, I think things just fell into line without talking about, “This is how our life is.” Things just developed naturally with his work and what he would show. I think I knew if there was something I really wasn’t comfortable with, it wouldn’t be shown. When his show’s started happening, I wouldn’t stand next to images. I used to make it a point to come fully covered to his openings — I had gloves on, turtleneck — it was just like I was there to support him, I was excited about everything. I really didn’t see me or us in these images; I wouldn’t stare at them. And my whole point the entire time in taking these pictures — or taking these intimate shots — was for us, when we’re 80 — because I do hope with all my heart that we are together for the rest of our lives– when we’re old, we’re going to look back at these and it’s going to be amazing to look back at how we were when we were 18, 19, 20 year olds. How we interacted, how we were intimate.

Deanna Templeton.

Fette Sans, Sing Blackbird x gaffe photo-booth (1), Berlin, June 2012.
Last weekend, I put together this impromptu photo-studio inside the lovely Sing Blackbird, a store in Neukölln which sells vintage clothing and brews darling coffee. They had invited Dusseldorf based Sartorial extraordinaire Fedor Bock of gaffe for a special menswear pop-up shop, so I brought the Zenit.
