Photography ~ 25daysgirlinred

For the Christmas season, I created my own holiday photography campaign called 25 Days Girl In Red.

Between London and New York, I promoted holiday spirit with a variety of red items on social media.

Cool brands such as O.P.I., Hunter and Marc Jacobs were chosen. Then my favourite contemporary brands, rag & bone and Osklen are shown. Also, luxury brands including items Burberry, Givenchy, Hermes and Jimmy Choo were used. And of course, pieces bought during my travels were selected for selfies.

It was festive and fun! Posted below are a few of my snaps. Visit my Instagram: londonlady91 to see more.

Art ~ Alibis: Sigmar Polke

Former German painter and photographer, Sigmar Polke is bringing his foundation of capitalist realism to New York.

Sigmar Polke was a highly influential postwar generation artist who highlighted art, history, social, political and traditional aspects of German culture in his works.

From using unconventional materials, numerous mediums are explored which blur the boundaries in art.There are 250 powerful works which include drawings, films, installations, paintings and prints. Imagery features art history, cartoons, current affairs and scenes from Polke’s private life.

At an early age, Polke was fond of consumer goods during a time of deprivation.Thus, he experimented with raw materials such as fabric, detergent, paint, coal, tape and bubble wrap to find his own artistic style as a way to defy authority. The composition resulted in figurative abstraction and mocking minimalism and conceptualism.

Polke’s pieces depict valued ideas and meanings from the past. In all, the works make viewers question what is/was as they are amused. The MoMA is presenting the exhibition to convey a retrospective variety of Polke’s subject matter. Get ready for confusion and amazement while trying to discover alibis in contemporary art.
