Apples, Cigarettes etc.






Artworks Roe Ethridge

Hunger for photorealism of photos of realism. Realist photos. Naturalist photos. Outdoor food sex. Exhibitionist fruit, nicotine fruit, the slurp of aphrodisiac.

The Camp Of Plagiarism II



Alex Katz Round Hill, 1977
Steven Meisel An Interpretation, 1997

It is not a secret. For the Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, the newly redefined Loewe brand (directed by J.W. Anderson) is appropriating the work of Steven Meisel, who himself is appropriating a painting by Alex Katz. The truth is never/always sad.

I Want To Break Free













Queen - I Want To Break Free 1984

A hymn. A song that always reminds me of the work of McDermott & McGough. The reason why it is okay to wear a cow-pattern leotard, pointy tits and sing while vacuum cleaning. The reason why it is okay to be Lady Gaga. And why we should never forget where we are coming from.

Walter's Monsters









1. Jürgen Teller Believe, 1999
2. Walter van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2015

Today, 'arts and crafts' as aesthetic principle and technique (not movement) has a bad reputation. Undeservedly so. One wishes, there was more handcraft without calling it 'couture'. Breaking the human body, the human clothing into bits and pieces before reassembling its most crucial and visually most entertaining parts. Hail Walter.
