“Woman’s Selfie Attempt Destroys $200,000 Art Installation Near L.A. Chinatown!

Wait for it….. 0.11 is when the action happens. This took place at my mate Simon Birch’s art installation The 14th Factory in Los Angeles, when a lady tried to crouch down and pose in front of a pillar holding a sculpture to take a picture. She accidentally leant on it and the rest is history… $200,000 worth of art destroyed!

The room contains 60 crown-formed sculptures and is titled ‘Hypercaine’. The rest of The 14th Factory is one of its kind….. Go visit before it closes end of July (or before a few more pieces break).”

My Unintentional Series of Paintings

I wasn’t actually trying to do a series, but it looks like one has developed across several of my paintings. I can’t help noticing a through-line from
Night Voyage” to “At Sea,” and now to “Ferry.” They’re all about, well, night voyages, and for whatever reason, the color blue-green features prominently. They seem to represent excitement and adventure to me — venturing out into the unknown.

Click here to see “Ferry.”

“Fell from the Stars”

The Lucy Nation was a duo consisting of musician Andy Cousin and singer/pianist Anna Nyström. From what I’ve read online, they completed an album, it was ready to go, but then the record company had financial problems and never released it. One track, however (“Alright”), did make it onto an Austin Powers soundtrack.

Here’s one of my favorites from the album.
