Private View: Wandering Comma...

Among photographers today, Ryan McGinley occupies a unique position. In the late 1990’s, his Vice photography came to be associated with a sensibility that was cool and measured- with pictorially minded artists such as Dan Colon and Dash Snow. Simultaneously, an American style of diaristic photography emerged that was kinetic and emotional.
Ryan's latest exhibition, Wandering Comma, is effortlessly pleasurable to the eye. I had the pleasure of meeting him at his private view at Alison Jacques’ Gallery and similarly to my first meeting with him in 2009 he is unconsciously the coolest person I’ve ever met. Exhibiting 6 photographs all of which are as enchanting as each other they are mesmerising, youthful and represent the notion of capturing the ecstasy of the instant.

He has guided us through the unworldly caves in his previous London exhibition ‘Moonmilk’. Now, he has embraced a naturally wild scene, with the photograph Taylor (Rushing River) the model is emerged in the water’s brutish waves. This exhibition is a must see. go! go! go!

Turkish Family Dinner

Sometimes I can't believe how much I can eat. Well, this night my stomach was taken to a whole new level. Mindless eating, that's what it was. Why do we eat more than we think we can? But, I'm not going to blame myself I'm going to blame the whiff of Turkish delights...chicken...roasted vegetables...baklava (well, I was distracted by the sight of it). Seriously though, the powerful allure of food is well....powerful...

But eat food. Eat at Mangal's its super!

Jonathan Horowitz

I had no intention of liking Horowitz…this much. I had seen his work here, there and everywhere, and read an interview with him in Interview, who quite rightly regard him as the cleverest artist alive.
Anyway, this evening I decided to attend his private view. I walked into Mayfair's, Sadie Coles to find a candid elite artist hang out. Juergen Tellier was smoking indoors and Michael Stipe, who, by hastily approaching every piece, looked like he wanted to buy everything he saw. 

Horowitz’s Art, History is a great exhibition. It is modern, political and clever.

CSM Art School or Business?


We confirmed our friendship making clothes for fairies and persuading everyone we knew, even my mother, that we were sisters. 
We formed a band called LAND at the age of 7.
She has 3 amazing dogs, Rhani, Hiro and Rouge.
Her Blackberry cover is pure GLAM.

Having finished "Just Kids" by Patti Smith, there was nothing that could stop me attending Night Works. The exhibition is curated by curated by Scissor Sisters, who chose Robert Mapplethorpe's photographs, polaroids and sculptures.

Curry Knights, was founded by Alex Jukes (Rogan Ravager) and Leo Gizzi (Captain Curry-geous) in January 2008. 
My first Friday of the Month is dedicated to this food fest. We are normally, as quoted by the group's page, "A brave troupe of fearless spicy food fanatics that traverse the vast kingdom of Ealing in search for the holiest of grails; a banging curry. Uniting in force on the first friday of every month when their tastebuds are at their peak, these heroic adventurers test every curry house in the ghetto of ealing the only way they know how; one restaurant at a time."
It is embarrassingly true that I get ecstatic about such an event. But it is the whole concept. From, thinking of "Currified Names" like 'Dr Who and the Dhaaleks' and 'Aloo Aloo' to Jukes', to the, almost monthly, currified message and to debating why we are being charged £4.40 extra for no apparent reason (even when we include our tips).

Ideally, I would love a muesli club, but until I have one more member, other than myself, I am happy munching on poppadoms and disappointing everyone by not having cash but card to pay with. It seems to annoy just about everyone these days...the way I like to keep it as well.
