At Home with Gordon Smith

01

Video

01. Music by JIIN.

Words

I recently had the privilege of visiting Gordon Smith to direct a short film about the legendary artist, captured by Fahim Kassam. At 96 years young, Gordon's passion for art and design is contagious, and a pleasure to be around. His home in West Vancouver was designed by one of his closest friends, Arthur Erickson. The space is a modest maze of vaulted ceilings and glass corridors with views of the Pacific ocean, filled with vintage mid-century furniture and an impressive collection of art and objects.

01. Replica Blue.

Words

Alpha Industries are the standard when it comes to flight jackets, with enough history and collaborations to back up any dispute. While projects with the likes of Supreme and Stüssy often receive the headlines, this special edition NASA version of their classic MA-1 should not be overlooked.

01. Only ten made each day.

Words

Kaikado began producing handmade tea caddies in 1875 using sheets of tin imported from Cornwall in the UK. The company's small Kyoto factory only makes ten each day, with incredible precision and the perfect balance between simple design and personal character. With years of use the airtight containers, available in a variety of sizes and finishes, begin to reveal a deeper appeal as they develop an ever-evolving patina.

Gerhard Richter: Atlas, in Four Volumes

Info

Slip hardcover
828 pages, 14 x 18 inches
Edition of 1500
Published by Walther König, 2015

Words

"More than 50 years ago, Gerhard Richter began mounting parts of his extensive collection of pictorial material on cardboard, hoping to create order and clarity among his archive of photos, newspaper clippings, sketches, drawings, construction plans, room design, collages, overpainted photographs and drafts of paintings. Richter eschewed chronology – his real interest was in iconographical and typological order. A work in progress, this Atlas soon developed into an independent Gesamtkunstwerk mirroring biographical and historical facts – an artistic cosmos of great autonomy, a source of all of his thought and creation. The artist's book has become an important genre for Richter, and in this large-format, four-volume edition, he has not only reproduced Atlas, but rearranged it. His decision to show all of his plates at a scale of 1:2 makes the monumental archive – with more than 5,000 images – visible in all its details for the first time. Richter himself has redefined the colour of his plates, piece by piece, through several correction phases, rendering this epic work accessible in a stunning new publication."

Diane Simpson & Lesley Vance at Herald St

Info

2 Herald Street
London E2 6JT
November 21, 2015 – January 31, 2016

Words

The Herald St gallery in London opened a concurrent exhibition of work by artists Diane Simpson and Lesley Vance in November. For those that haven’t seen it yet, the show runs until the end of January and looks well worth visiting. Geometric form and an inquisitive exploration of shape, rigidly in the case of Simpson and more fluidly as it pertains to the work of Vance, is the tie that binds these two artists. Amy Sherlock touches on this very succinctly in the text that accompanies the exhibition, referring to the paintings and sculptures as "developable surfaces."
