Richard Tuttle and Agnes Martin: Religion of Love

Info

Hardback
36 pages, 9.5 x 8 inches
1 colour, 14 B&W illustrations
Published by Walther König, 2016

Words

"Because Religion of Love (written in 1990s) is so late in coming out, we hope it worth the wait. As representative of one of the most important artist’s late thinking; on the one hand, it reconfirms her most classical thought (Beauty is the mystery of life), and, on the other, adds new thought with an urgency only found in a mature artist of her age and persuasion. One of the most rigorous of sensibilities, we do not know what she meant by uncharacteristically asking another artist, Richard Tuttle, to illustrate her text, for she, unlike he, had a clear understanding of the meaning of illustration. Knowing that, he took it up as much to fathom a friend’s genius after their passing, as well as the chance to say goodbye, life did not include, yet made available in publication. Hopefully, the reader can enjoy these various levels of interaction as art." Richard Tuttle, London, September 2014.

J.B. Blunk: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture

Info

5118 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90016
November 14, 2015 – January 23, 2016

Words

In November of last year, Gerard O’Brien, owner of the astonishingly good Reform Gallery in Los Angeles, opened his new space, The Landing, with an exhibition of work by the late American artist J.B. Blunk. Known for his immense redwood sculptures, Blunk’s list of influences is as impressive as his chainsaw carvings, having studied pottery with Laura Andreson at UCLA, and Rosanjin Kitaoji and Toyo Kaneshige in Japan. His lesser-seen paintings and drawings, also featured in this show, evoke a similar simplicity and connection to nature. The exhibition closes on January 23rd, leaving just over two weeks to take in the work of an under-appreciated West Coast legend.

Niuhans, the somewhat mysterious Tokyo-based clothier, has been producing beautifully refined everyday items since 2010. As one of the label's few North American stockists, Neighbour recently sat down with designer Daisuke Hamada to discuss the origins and philosophies behind the brand for their latest online feature.

Words

Among the early deliveries at Très Bien are these trainers by Y-3. Made from a mix of neoprene and leather, the Kohna model feels reminiscent of Reebok's Instapump Fury – a shoe that has a lot of potential. Y-3's version, however, comes in all black and feels a bit more polished overall.

At Home with Gordon Smith

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.
