Gosha Rubchinskiy's Bookshelf


Words

Gosha Rubchinskiy recently put together a list of inspirational Russian books for a short feature on the Oki-ni website. There is an interesting mix of painting, photography, sport and subculture, which isn't overly surprising given the collection's references.

Union recently received their first shipment from Wacko Maria. The label hasn't been widely distributed outside of Japan in the past, so it's good to see their product hitting stores we can purchase from a lot more easily.

Religious Observance

Info

Boo-Hooray, LA
413 Rose Ave.
Venice, CA 90291
March 19 – April 19, 2015

Words

After recently holding an exhibition devoted to the work of Ed and Deanna Templeton at the LA Art Book Fair, New York's Boo-Hooray gallery continue to exert their influence on the West Coast with a group photography show featuring the likes of Ray Potes, Tobin Yelland, C.R. Stecyk III, Andrea Sonnenburg and Jerry Hsu. The curation is logically complimentary, bringing together artists whose obvious confluence is where the subcultural fields of skateboarding, zine making and street photography meet. Following an opening reception between 7 and 10pm tonight, the exhibition can be viewed by appointment until April 19th.

Scugnizzi by Brett Lloyd

Info

First edition, 2014
Softcover
6.75 x 9.5 inches

Words

The thought of summers on the Mediterranean often seem dreamy and romantic, but Brett Lloyd's Scugnizzi, published by Dashwood Books, presents another perspective. Focusing on the beaches of Naples, the London-based photographer captures a different kind of beauty, paying particular attention to colour, the region's youth, and the richness of southern Italian culture.

Lunge Adagio

Image

—01. Made in Germany.

Words

I feel like I’ve professed my admiration for predominantly grey running shoes enough that it probably goes without saying. In spite of that the internal dialogue remains, with the consistent question rattling around in my brain: "But do they come in grey?" Enter Lunge, the German shoe manufacturer, whose simple but technical runners come in a number of variations of almost every grey colourway, as well as other colour options for the more adventurously inclined. The Adagio style, designed for long distance running, features signature details such as premium suede, a distinct high traction sole unit, and the graphic use of venting on the sides and toe box.

Martin Wong: Painting Is Forbidden

Info

The Wattis Institute
360 Kansas St.
San Francisco, CA
March 13 – April 18, 2015

Words

Even though Martin Wong will be returning to his birthplace by the bay for his posthumous show Painting Is Forbidden, to me he will forever be a New York artist. Both stylistically and conceptually, you would be hard-pressed to find an artist whose work embodies the turmoil of '70s and '80s New York more than Wong's. With an approach that sits somewhere between Philip Guston, Rick Griffin, and Jacob Lawrence, everybody is sure to find something they admire in the decade-spanning body of work presented at this show.
