THE SHEEP STATION by FRANCOIS XAVIER LALANE

Street Art // Monday, September 16, 2013
Last weekend while navigating the overwhelming amount of fall show openings in the Chelsea District of New York, we, like everyone else around, were taken off guard by the strange scene of sheep grazing in what was once an operating gas station. The Getty Station is a new on site-specific installation program that will exist in the already heavily art-saturated area of Chelsea. For the inaugural exhibition, Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery present “Sheep Staion” featuring the work of late artist François-Xavier Lalanne.

The photographs in Isabel Martinez' series Quantum Blink consist of two exposures taken one after the other. With in-camera masks, the photographer achieves the striped pattern and allows her to blend two images together and at the same time 'keep them from fully fusing into one another.'

Kincaid Blackwood Photography

Erotica // Saturday, September 14, 2013

Blackwood lives in Atlanta, GA, but claims that "no place is really safe from my images." We love the narrative power of his images. NSFW!
