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.

Y-3 Kohna

01. Neoprene upper.

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

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.

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.

Kaikado Tea Caddies

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.
