Erotica // Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It is funny to include these groundbreaking works in an Erotica section, yet looking at it another way, these works pratcially invented the term. From The Courtauld: Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career. Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

'Too Blessed To Be Stressed' entitles the newest body of work by StolenSpace represented artist - Word To Mother. His unmistakable figures sit amongst a landscape of earth tones, pastel shades and flashes of turquoise and fluorescent reds. Repetitive gold leaf triangles are placed amongst subtle, reflective washes, drips and textures to create a metaphoric contrast of the 'appreciation of the understated', versus glorified materialism.

For their new single, Month of Sundays, the band had director Callum Cooper create a visual look. The director told Nowness, "When I heard the track, the stark harmonies brought to mind the Russian children’s choirs of the 1970s."
