Art: Wherever It Comes From ...  

0 comments

Artist, Jason McKoy's new series entitled, "Wherever It Comes From ..." is inspired by the 9 muses of Greek mythology. Each muse is the source of a different aspect of creativity and expression. These muses whisper in our ears right before we go to bed and shock our senses after that first (or second) cup of coffee. Without them, there would be no starving artists, no advertising and no reason to wake up in the morning and eat a bowl of cereal. The series was laser printed on bonded paper and wheat pasted on recycled pressed fiber board. Each wheat pasted piece is produced using all natural and recycleable materials.

Artist, Peter Callesen states: "The paper cut sculptures explore the probable and magical transformation of the flat sheet of paper into figures that expand into the space surrounding them. The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in many of the cuts."

Fashion: La China Loca  

0 comments

La China Loca is a milliner (hat designer) based in New York City. Nurtured by the warm glow of television; she found herself immersed in film noir, classic western, kung fu and old mobster cinema. These early experiences became aesthetic inspirations. La China bought her first felt hat when she was a student studying fashion in NYC. It was an electric blue bowler that excited her senses and sparked her fascination. After over a decade, she has returned to feverishly bringing her visions into elegant reality. Rive Magazine met up with La China Loca at her design studio to discuss some of her favorite pieces; video below. Her designs are stunning, fresh and highly unique while still using traditional foundations. Shop at: lachinaloca.com

Photography & Poem By: Atisha Paulson





who can keep track
of the
truth?

heading home it falls,
i want to be more like you.
without a name
too lost or
forgotten to be remembered.

no one knows anything you don't.
is the worst behind us?
drifting forward away
speeding towards forever in the past
in the rearview mirror
death looks me in the face.

once i know
you will too.
maybe i'll whisper it
maybe i won't.
at least watch.
i'll definitely watch.

nobody got hurt.
nobody i knew anyway.
everyone just laid there on the ground
waiting to get up
waiting for the end.
it never came
but here it is.

Fashion: A Tribute To Kenneth Paul Block  

0 comments

1925-2009

On April 23, 2009 the fashion industry lost arguable one the greatest fashion illustators of the twentieth century: Kenneth Paul Block. According to Kenneth,"It was never fashion I was interested in; what I wanted was to draw beautiful women in beautiful clothes" and so he did--with certain qualms from family and colleagues alike. Following his graduation at Parsons in 1945, he then joined WWD and W for about forty years(due to the popularity of fashion photography.) He also created numerous sketches for Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Bonwit Teller, Yves Saint Laurent, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, Givenchy, and Balenciaga (despite some controversy). Having drawn since he could hold a pencil, Block proved that persistence prevailed(though he wasn't sure quite where his came from.

Film: Death to the Tinman  

0 comments

"Incredible short is meant to be a prequel to The Wizard of Oz and tells the story of how the tinman lost his limbs, his girl and his cherished heart. This short is really bizarre in its visuals but its story is quite touching and very funny. If you're a fan of the film then you should really enjoy this thing, which gives you some background on the tinman. Seeing how he lost all of his body parts, due to a curse and an accident, are very well done and the overall screenplay is just smart from start to finish." - Michael Elliott

Manolo Viacrucis M. is an old fashioned unknown painter and musician who has exhibited figurative paintings and performed music all around Pennsylvania, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. He's taking a break from standard fine arts/music to reconfigure his "voice" and jumpstart his illustration career. In the meantime, he will do little things like perform at this month's Bushwick Book Club (myspace.com/bushwickbookclub), sell comics he made at this year's MoCCA Festival (moccany.org/artfest09-main.html), and paint a naked person on a regular basis. Eventually he would like to marry and quietly settle on a faux farm, raising fake animals to slaughter for their meat and fur. To view more of Manolo's art visit: lonersguide.com
