I just have to repost this image because this profile is STUNNING. Check out Heather (co-owner of the TAYLOR de CORDOBA Gallery) and her purchase from Saturday night's party.
I have seen a lot of ladies purchase there amazing clips at the Show Pony, but WOW...this particular picture is incredible. If you haven't seen last months Marie Claire issue that focuses on L.A. ART and musicians, try to check it out, Heather Taylor has a beautiful colorful fashion spread in front of FROHAWK's paintings.
By the way, you should really go to her gallery and check out the latest art show by artist
Claire Oswalt titled: Trustfall. You may remember me raving about her work while in Miami for the AQUA Art Show. She creates these paperdoll like hinged paintings that are incredible.
March 15 - April 15, 2008.
here's the PRESS release
With her puppets made from wood, twine, and graphite on paper, Oswalt explores an increasingly complex adult world with a childlike simplicity and curiosity. The push and pull between control and freedom is pervasive throughout her series: from a girl being blown away, to the clothes that have fallen on the floor, to a man falling out of his chair. Her puppets demonstrate a sense of restricted movement, while the title of her series suggests an unrestrained freefall, made possible only with trust. Oswalt ensures that each fall is a fall in the right direction, or to a safe place. And although they are put into a position that lacks control, the puppets put their trust in the artist and subsequently the viewer. In this sense, the puppets welcome us into their world as we explore the trials and tribulations of "falling" in love and falling through life. Though Trustfall is theatrical with its changing backdrops and Pinnochio-esque qualities, its characters instill a quiet sense of realism that prompt the viewer to ponder the simple aesthetic quality which propels these puppets into our world.
Taylor De Cordoba is located at 2660 S La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles, CA and is open from Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-5:30pm. For additional press information, contact Heather Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 559-9156.
