Video: Andreco + Ericailcane in Morocco

Ericailcane, who showed with FIFTY24SF Gallery in late 2010, just finished a collaborative piece with Andreco in the Sahara desert of Morocco. These types of things never, ever, get old. We are sure to see Mr. Ericailcane painting in the south of Italy this summer… always a pleasure to see FAME Festival festivities.

The kids need to learn somehow. One of the most recognizable manmade things in the world also happens to be one of the most unexplainable. We are talking about Stonehenge, which lies in Whiltshire in merry ole’ England. And Jeremy Deller has created an inflatable version for the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts. You know, because you can’t just bounce around the real thing, now can you? (via)

Andy Warhol’s Bardot works on display at Gagosian in London

Except for the part of Bardot being a raging racist in her later years, she looked pretty good back in the 1950s, 60s, and early 70s. And Andy Warhol was commissioned to do portraits of the French actress/icon, and now the works, some never seen before, are on display at the Gagosian space on Davies Street in London. Bardot has never been shown before in the original series it was created.

Here is a little press blurb:

Warhol first met Bardot at the Cannes Film Festival in 1967 when she actively supported his attempt to show The Chelsea Girls there after the original planned screening had been cancelled. In 1973, at the height of her fame, she announced her retirement from making films. That same year Warhol received the commission to make her portrait. At this time that he was shifting his focus from filmmaking back to painting and perhaps viewed her coincidental screen exit as the perfect opportunity to commemorate and idolize her in art.

At the time of the commission, Bardot was as beautiful and famous as ever, her smouldering gaze, flowing blonde hair, and inimitable pout epitomizing the free-spirited energy and sexual allure that defined a new era. In these portraits of her, based on an arresting photograph taken by Richard Avedon in 1959, Warhol applied similar formal techniques to those he used in his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor — a cropped frontal viewpoint and contrasting palette (blue/red, pink/purple, green/black) with vivid primary accents on eyes and lips. In each of the paintings, Bardot’s carnal beauty fills the square canvas in the manner of a record cover, her voluptuous, leonine features framed by abundant, tousled hair.
