If you don’t know who Jeremy Williams is, you damn well should. He shares his name with a light-weight boxer, is an incredibly sweet guy, and also, he’s an amazing photographer. Jeremy’s images are fresh, inspiring and elegant. He has a playful and genuine ability to engage both subject and viewer. Give his portfolio a look and I promise you won’t be disappointed. I predict exciting things from him in the future. You heard it here first, Kids. Jeremy Williams. I love it. K$

Just got these hot new pics from Rad Hourani’s spring 2009 collection. They also just posted an art film on SHOWstudio here. RYAN DYE
1. What motivates you?
Seeing others rise above the A B C of being. Artists like Hanna Sandin, Anna Lundh, Sanya Kantarovsky, Tom Hines and Modern Life of the Soul. Bands like Violens and designers like Alison Kelly and Rebecca Turbow.
2. Who are your greatest inspirations(doesn’t have to be another artist)?
Right now I’m really excited about the dancer Loie Fuller. Her performances were mystifying and her lifestyle was incredibly progressive for her time. I would have loved to have been in Paris around 1900 and seen her dance. I also have a childish couple crush on Charles and Ray Eames. The world they created for themselves
was so full of love and creativity. And Louise Bourgeois really inspires me. So does Mamma Anderson.
3. How do you describe your artistic style?
I’m not sure I can answer that…I’d rather describe someone else’s artistic style. Steeped in metaphor ? Ethereal? Confessional? Secretive?
4. Who is the most important person in your life?
There have been so many amazing amazing people in my life…I could never pick just one. Hopefully, they know who they are, and they know how much I love them.
5. Have you set any artistic goals for yourself, if so, what are they?
I have endless goals for myself…and they’re probably very boring. But the driving force behind all of my goals is to move people. I want to make images that resonate with people on a deep inner level.
Why is the new Animal Collective album art work doing this to my eye balls? The record won’t be released until January 20th but the record cover can make you dizzy right now. I swoon to think how I’ll feel listening to the record while looking at this…K$
Ritta is my new favorite Finnish art star pixie. Graduating from Communication Art & Design department at the Royal College of Art in London, she’s gone on to do provocative and personal work incorporating costume design and photography to connect with places and objects.
These two images just tickled me. She toys with scale and human interaction. One might imagine these little figures like their own Jiminy Cricket on their shoulder, or eye lid, or ear. K$

Hot shit from Christofer Hald. RYAN DYE
With an exterior designed by the incredible Zaha Hadid & an interior inspired by the Chanel quilted bag it would have been difficult for this exhibition to not be beautiful, but this truly is a unique experience. Being talked through the whole exhibition by your own private tour-guide & with a location specific soundtrack built in it’s poignancy is really targeted at all of your ambient senses. Initially it’s somewhat difficult to shake the feeling you’re about to walk into the year 2100 in this futuristic UFO looking structure, but it’s well worth the apprehension once you walk through those doors.
This exhibition honestly gave me a sense of fulfillment & a feeling of well-being. Of course it helps that the whole thing is executed as the epitome of class, with incredible organization & with the main inspiration coming from the beautiful & timeless Chanel quilt, I ask, who could resist?! KATE
