The Little Screens

A series from the early 1960s by Lee Friedlander

Flower Arrangements

 
In Joe Garvey’s intriguing new series, he collages sports stars with flower and plants: The background of a Babe Ruth baseball card has been replaced by daisies, and Michael Jordan dribbles amidst an arrangement of tiger lilies. “I’ve always loved plants and mixing them with the basketball images has been really satisfying,” Joe says. “Taking two beautiful things to make a new image is exciting for me.” Joe started collecting old photo books a few years ago, and now uses his extensive files to create these juxtapositions. “I take a few images from the cache that I find interesting and start fussing with them,” he explains, “sometimes it takes me a few minutes, sometimes a few hours, even days to be finally happy with a composition.” Joe will soon publish a zine through Done To Death publications, which features collages of vintage sports memorabilia auction catalogs with images of flowers, plants and nature. In the meantime, you can purchase his recent T-shirt collaboration with Deer Dana here, which features his Snoopy illustration on the front and a portrait of John Baldessari on the back. Baldessari is one of the artists who most inspire Joe’s work, along with Sol LeWitt, Stuart Davis, Clyfford Still, Keith Haring, Chuck Close and Ed Ruscha.

Babes of Yore: Bunny Yeager

Bunny Yeager was a pin-up model who went behind the lens to capture years of iconic images as well as strong self-portrait work. Once proclaimed “World’s Prettiest Photographer” by U.S. Camera Magazine, Yeager passed away May 25th, 2014 at the age of 85 of congestive heart failure.

Deep Below Heaven

The wrinkles in this new publication from Mikael Kennedy are not intentional, I foolishly left the once-pristine 32-page, 9″ x 14″ zine full of beautiful landscapes on my dining room table next to an open window and an empty bottle of red wine. It rained that night, and this is the unfortunate effect of humidity on newsprint. You could say that this zine now has a “well-traveled” look to it, and that would be great, because starting tomorrow night, Mikael and his wife, Folk-Singer Melaena Cadiz begin their month long tour across America. Celebrating the joint release of their respective album + photo collection—both titled “Deep Below Heaven”—the duo’s first stop is at the Westerlind Showroom in Nolita for a performance accompanied by photo-projections. Stop by at 7pm and wish them well on their journey through the heartland.

In the Studio of Hiro Kurata

 
How long have you been in this studio?

Since October last year (2013).
 
Why did you pick the location?

It’s sort of close from my apartment and the rent is quite cheap compared to other studios in the city. Red Hook still has the atmosphere of everything not being so gentrified, so I’m in love with this neighborhood. The down part is the convenience of transportation isn’t too good. It’s a problem when it rains or snows because I bike here.
 
How does it rank in comparison to your previous studios?

I’m still figuring that out. I like the fact that I’ve separated my studio and my apartment since I’ve always worked from my apartment. It was really convenient to live and work in the same spot because of many reasons, but I guess it was time for me to separate the two. The winter we had here in Brooklyn this year was pretty horrible and this studio here gets really cold because it’s an old concrete building. I was wearing layers of clothes while I was here, thinking how nice it was working from home. The spring is becoming much easier to work and I’m staring to like this place more.
 
What’s your favorite attribute of the space?

The lighting from the window is perfect. During the day, I usually don’t turn on the lights and work with natural light, which feels good.
 
How often are you in here?

3-4 days a week. I have a few part time jobs with some weird schedules so whenever I have time, I escape here.
 
Can you explain the full capabilities of the studio? What kind of things do you make?

Mainly a painting studio. Since I have three clean walls, I can work on three different paintings at once. The best part of having a studio is I can do messy things and not care about it.
 
Do you have a refrigerator? If so, what’s in it?

I don’t have one, so I keep few bottles of water and bring my own tea from home.
 
What kind of sound system do you have?

Headphones, or raw sound from computer speakers.
 
Have you ever slept here?

I’ve taken a nap here, but never a serious one… yet.
 
 
Hiro has a new book which will be released next month from Anteism, and in conjunction with the book release, he will be in Victoria, Canada to exhibit in their truck gallery and paint the exterior of the truck. For more information on Hiro’s artwork, visit his website www.shiloku.com/
