ARCHIVE PRINT | Scorsese Exhibition | Young Martin’s Sketch sheet | Credit Roll of Imaginary film | 2018

Film director Martin Scorsese has been fascinated by film from a very early age. The exhibition of personal background material of his work, his original ideas, sketches and edits together with photos from his family album is one of the most inspiring shows I’ve seen this year.

The detailed drawings in the storyboards he did as a child – of a complete film with a Roman theme – are gobsmacking. The Eternal City. I can hear the music.

The New Bible On Pink

PS | 04122018

Out now, a bible on PINK by Valerie Steele, published by Thames & Hudson

pink

A new book by Thames & Hudson

Description by Hudson : “Today, with the advent of “millennial pink,” the color formerly associated with Barbie has acquired a new identity. Nor is this the first time the symbolism of pink has been radically transformed. In collaboration with a major exhibition at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, curator and fashion historian Valerie Steele explores the history and significance of pink in fashion, art, and culture from the eighteenth century to the present.

Steele and her co-authors tell the whole story of this controversial color, emphasizing how its meanings changed throughout the centuries and across the globe, in cultures as diverse as France, India, Japan, Mexico, and the United States. In eighteenth-century France, men and women alike wore pink, which was a fashionably “new” color. A century later, however, pink had become feminized and eroticized in the West.

Pink is beautifully illustrated, with images of stunning pink fashions given context by photographs, advertisements, and works of art. It features essays by scholars across the disciplines, giving readers access to a wealth of research into subjects as diverse as Hollywood movies and the symbolism of the pink triangle. This book will appeal to those interested in fashion and culture, as well as those who love pink.

Early Work As A Teacher

early work

Explorers | work by group 5 of the primary school De Dapper in Amsterdam | Results from my first round of practice as an artist teacher.

You would think everything here on earth has been discovered by now. If you would want to find something new, where would you go? How would you travel?

This was the question I put upon a group of 8 and 9 year olds, doing my first workshop as an artist/teacher last month. And this is their answer: From all the stuff I brought along to school they constructed explorers. Most kids decided they would have to check out space, some were considering the deep sea. I think it could be either with these vessels, they do look the part!

(By the way, crazy to think, that when you don’t take out your plastic recyclables for two weeks, you have -almost- enough rough material to kick start a group of 20 creatives.)
