Dear Blaine Fontana. I'm inspired.

Blaine Fontana, designer and craftsman from Portland, USA.

“My work has always been about juxtaposing 2 worlds, several unlikely mediums, or techniques. This is directly an influence of my upbringing and current interests and inspiration. I couldn't imagine doing my work any different.”

Connor in Hell

Connor Harrington preparing works for the Hell's Half Acre exhibition in London from the 12th Oct. Artists will provide their own interpretation of hell with freedom to reference both Purgatorio and Paradiso from the trilogy of The Divine Comedy.

Through the curatorial direction, interaction with the exhibited works—paintings, sculptures, video pieces, performance and mixed media installation—is encouraged and part of this thrilling multi-sensory experience. Highlights of the exhibition include for the very first time 3-dimensional installations by Conor Harrington and Jonathan Yeo, a new exclusively commissioned film by Todd James/ REAS, the powerfully chilling photographs of George Osodi and Boogie, with a surprise finale by Paul Insect.

Style Watch: Diane Birch

"I've been wearing hats since I was about eight when I developed an addiction to berets. They looked great with my perm. My style is basically a black mixture of masculine/feminine/old/new, a little bit gypsy, a little bit granny, a little bit rock and roll with a dash of street." Singer-songwriter Diane Birch.

in love with ann

"The way I see it, a photograph is a capture of all the right things in the right place. Light is only the pattern of infinite, individual photons shifting and bouncing through space and suspension. And people, they are eternally fluid with each blink of the eye and each rising, sinking, rocking breath. The universe is always in motion; nothing is ever the same. I want to immortalize on film those moments when everything is in perfect alignment."
