Tyler Shields Seductive Symbols: Sirens

  Christine Barnett: I’ve seen the press release you did in video format. How conceptual are your pictures? The Birkin series spoke for themselves. The Suspense works were more towards technique grounded within philosophical values. You talk a lot about the process, what’s the take away for an art collector? Tyler Shields: I’ve noticed it’s about a connection. When you […]

Jennifer Young

by Christine Barnett. London, UK There’s a new fashion out there: RAW. Meditate your mind they say. Stick to alpha mode instead of beta frequencies.

All but a Dream

by Christine Barnett. London, UK Chrysta Bell’s performance was as intoxicating as usual. With new songs such as All but a Dream, which moves away from her darker more sentimental songs fusing the nostalgic and the somewhat optimistic, through parallel melodies and melodic beats.
