WOW, another year.

Taylor was invited to a costume party this past Saturday, and called me in a panic to see if I could be part of her costume. Seems her last minute costume decision needed a cohort in crime. So I had about an hour to channel Lohan to her Ronson.
On our way home from visiting Viv at U.C.L.A. hospital (she had her healthy baby BOY!) Cynthia and I drove down Sunset into the land of STAR MAPS and rich people shopping on Rodeo Drive.

SUZANNAH SINCLAIR SOLO EXHIBITION: EYES FOR NO ONE October 10 - November 25, 2008 OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10TH, 6 - 9 PM LOYAL is proud to present EYES FOR NO ONE, a new group of paintings by New York based artist SUZANNAH SINCLAIR. There is a captivating emotion in these elegant watercolor on birch-panel paintings of female figures. The portraits reveal much more than the physical in a look or a gaze. Personal yet with an untouchable mystique, the figures are always alone and in intimate poses. Sad, proud, hopeful, exasperated, a range of human sentiment is transfered. The matter-of-fact nakedness of the subjects tends toward confrontational and examines whether we are more comfortable with the sexual than with the emotional. The consistency of Sinclairs style of portraiture brings to mind the haunting and alluring portrait photography of Horst P. Horst, who said about his photograph "Odalisque", New York 1943, "I dont know how I did it. I couldnt repeat it. It was created by emotion."

Fashion week in L.A. has once more snuck up without much fanfare. Of course the people over at GEN ART are always an exception. They support new up and coming artists, designers and filmmakers. This past week we attended to support Laura Kranitz and her FAB head pieces. Our girl is all grows'dup. She has been a big seller at my shop Show Pony for ever! Finally her ideas are about to get the boost they need in the mainstream markets.

Just 3 days ago while walking /running around Echo Park Lake, I thought about Uncle Lou. I wondered how a 99 year old man still managed to walk 2 miles and hit golf balls. It's taken me weeks of activity to manage running 2 miles around the lake. I passed two men (probably in their 80's and very much like the Odd Couple) who were walking and arguing. And I realized that "living" is what keeps you living. It just takes moments of action and movement forward that propels you to keep moving forward.
The new Blank Blue video (band is Elvin a.k.a. d.J. nobody and Nik-alotta has just come out. The psychedelic sounds of Blank-blue make them a nice dreamy soundtrack for Cali living. There video also features some of my artwork towards the end! I'm so excited to be a part of it. My friends Hashim and Akiko created the pretty video. Here's a lil synopsis for the concept:
There's something about the plastic taffy like tied up dresses, the sparkle weird tie front pants, the colorform cutout dresses and paper doily like wraps that makes Vivienne Westwood's new stuff- so "her"
I love this tie back dress on the right.
