Lisa Oppenheim’s work constitutes an archaeology of visual culture. She brings the hidden, under-appreciated and repressed into view, and in the process reveals an ordering of things that goes beyond our commonplace responses. Her work ranges from damaged negatives from early 20th century news stories, personal photographs posted on ‘Flicker’ by soldiers serving in Iraq through to the constellation of the day and location of famous historical media stories.
Press Release from ‘The… Continue

The ravishing composition which had remained undone;
Was originally created to catch the heart of someone.
But as the notes were played in the goddess’ instrument,
Soothing sentiment was replaced by torment
Hearing the serene makes one man bleed.
It’s like a sharp-edge sword, which death it just might lead;
Being entrapped in the measure, notes sucking thy heart;
A hymn which is death’s art.
Anguish echoed as it plays… Continue

My parents used to do this thing every night at the dinner table. When my dad came home the family went into assigned roles. He walked in and the serving dishes keeping warm in the oven were carried into the dining room that had already been set by anyone my mom found watching TV. Watching TV was one of the lowest forms of existing. We were made to feel guilty about such an indulgence while there are soldiers fighting a war for their country.
If we were going to indulge in the Brady… Continue

just uploaded some more images. but i'm way way way too tired to write any discriptions right now without them turning into gibberish.
will work on that soon.
also there's not much point to put the exact same stuff on here that can already be seen on another website, hence the photo ploughing.
must also paint some more! :)
+i really appreciate all your comments, such a friendly place this is!

spent most of the day sorting out photographs, but the more i look at them the more they look crap to me! this editing business is so hard!
how do you judge whether a photograph is "good" or not? say, if you're selecting stuff for a portfolio, how do you know what is "worthy" and what is not? or by what other criteria should you go? given that you have to eliminate stuff one way or another...
god it's doing my head in!

It's basically a podcast where I interview and review upcoming NYC based artists, musicians, comedians, directors and actors about how they are trying to be successful at their passion.

when our arms we lift up
and the tall trees touch our heads
then the marvelled hands of Alchemy
shows the petrified face of Eternity
when our arms we lift up
and the high clouds touch our heads
then will the unwary face of madness
show the fleeting smile of happiness
it must be brief and endless
this enduring journey amongst men
