Akiko Stehrenberger is the coolest contemporary poster-artist. I hope studios start to gravitate more towards movie posters like these.

"   Why do people have to be this lonely? What’s the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?   "

Haruki Murakami

I’m 98% sure this is from Sputnik Sweetheart, which is one of my favorite books.

Opens tonight, Sept 11, 6-8p:

Dust Paintings
 Jenny Holzer

Cheim & Read Gallery, 547 W25th St., NYC

Language has been Holzer’s primary medium since the late 1970s. Placed on electronic signs or stone benches, Holzer’s text investigates how ideas are transformed from argument or opinion into fact. While her work has a conceptual base, she involves her viewer through what’s intensely physical. The documents painted most recently trace the political fallout and human wreckage in the global war on terror. The content of her new work is traced, transferred, and each letter and its surround are carefully hand-painted and re-painted. Holzer’s process echoes and amplifies traditional Arabic calligraphy–ghubar–which translates, literally, as “dust writing.” - thru Oct 25

In different circumstances, I probably would have found the decision to open this show on September 11th to be manipulative. However, the close chronological proximity with yesterday’s announcement of a counterterrorism campaignlimited war in Iraq, could make it very relevant and impactful.

Anyway, I will be there.

I’m too sick to draw tonight, so instead I am making a playlist to listen to while I draw tomorrow. For some reason I’m feeling some sexy r&b inspired stuff for this current drawing.

Have any suggestions, tumblr?
