Mississippi-based artist Glennray Tutor is an American painter who is known for his photorealistic paintings. He is considered to be part of the Photorealism art movement. His paintings are immersed with bright colors, nostalgic items, metaphor, and with a complete focus on detail. Tutor says the interplay between flat and round dimensions is a big part of his work.

His masterful oil paintings depict transparent rainbow colored marbles which rest upon light dappled comic book pages. Tutor’s photo-realist paintings draw the viewer in with their lifelike yet mystical qualities, capturing a moment seemingly insignificant, yet totally familiar.

Something for Americans to see to realize that Iranians are real people that don’t need to be bombed

Posted from The Citrus Report

Actually, this may do a disservice. This is going to make Tehranians look like New Yorkers or San Franciscians, or even Angelenos, because nice architecture and coffee is a Mississippi family’s worst nightmare. Then you have Arch Daily writing of M Coffee in Tehran, “The spatial concept was to present a significant solid mass that connects the entrance of the hall to the serving counter and also illustrates the roof and the walls as a continuous element. This solid mass provides the essential light of the area indirectly and eliminates any sharp and disturbing type of light. The form was generated through morphing two curves over each other that creates variety of different perspective views and diverse experiences in each spot.”

Well shit, we guess they are cool and pretentious, too in some respects. Love like a bomb.

Journey to the End of the World: Continued Adventures with the Infinite Wanderlust Crew

Posted from The Citrus Report

I have been to the end of the world and back.

Not to be mistaken for Venice Beach, CA, Venice, Louisiana is the last community down the Mississippi River that is accessible by auto. For this reason, it has been nicknamed “the end of the world.” Driving through Lousiana’s backroads, the scene is speckled with enclaves of petro strongholds, with familiar names including BP, Chevron, and Halliburton. The road itself is nondescript; aside from giant American trucks crawling alongside us and rows upon rows of mobile homes, the landscape was lush with foliage but otherwise uneventful.

The two-hour drive was finally rewarded by an almost untouched estuary complete with wildlife and birds. One can only imagine what it may have looked like after the oil spill, but as far as I can tell it was nature reminding me of her splendor and beauty. A quiet fishing town, the very end of the road led to a dock where fishermen gathered for their daily bids.

After a brief moment with the landscape, the Infinite Wanderlust team and I made our way back towards New Orleans, where, after a brief dinner of a crawdaddy boil and other creole delectables, we journeyed into the night with Houston as our destination. Jason and Saelee came up with a new game, whereby Sherry would need to guess what city she is in upon waking up in the car. Not that hard of a game when you’re traveling through Texas, where there are a handful of cities one may end up in. But if you’re on a road trip where the end of the world is in your itinerary, the game may prove a tad more difficult.

Top 15 causes of death by county in USA

Posted from The Citrus Report

This is a pretty incredible chart, showing you the Top 15 causes of death by county in USA. All in one graphic. Yikes.

Apparently, blood poisoning is big in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Nevada.

And, suicide in Wyoming, Oergon, Alaska, and Arizona is high.

One more: hypertension is high in North Carolina, West Virginia, and parts of California.

David Choe – Nothing to Declare

Lazarides Gallery is pleased to announce David Choe’s return to LA after a six-year hiatus from exhibiting in his old stomping ground. The extremely prolific Choe has been hard at work creating new paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the 8,000 sq ft space in Beverly Hills.
Driven by an unquenchable thirst for life, Choe saps every possible drop of experience – good or bad – out of his tremendous adventures. From incarceration in a Tokyo jail to hitchhiking down the Mississippi River via paddleboat, freight train hopping city to city and hunting for dinosaurs in the Congo jungle, David weaves these encounters into his work projecting a dramatic and fantastical, often sexually explicit, vision of the world.
As one of the most technically proficient artists around today, no media is left untouched. Utilizing a combination of spray paint, oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and urine, Choe works his magic on wood, cardboard, polyurethane and canvas. From the artist who first exhibited in an ice-cream parlor, expect no less than a sensory melting pot of life seen through his eyes

Opening: Friday April 23, 2010
Exhibition Runs: April 23 – May 23, 2010
Location: 320 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills CA 90210
