The magazine arrived today - hot off the Paris press -
Great story on the Hokianga by Jean Pascal Billaud
and gorgeous portraits by Eric Flogny.
Dallon August opened his art studio in the old ferry house
For some bizarre reason I was wearing black and not smiling
and Rob Pinkney, our resident cowboy, had literally just got back from
a long stint in Japan.
It reads tres sexy in French!
The best bit though, was meeting up with JP and Eric back in December.
As I recall they rode it out in exceptionally stormy weather.

"Intersections, interferences, contaminations between art and design, between ordinary and extraordinary" are the story for the group show at Post Design.
Its the ongoing conundrum of interest in contemporary design -
Markus Benesch and Tobias Rehberger come up with interesting outcomes.
Brings to mind a great saying printed on some of the Paris House wallets we have in store: "art will save the world right after rock and roll"
cocktail is at 7pm on the 16th of April at Post Design in Via Moscova 27, Milan

Momota's work has been described as both
dreamy and eerie - ' having a Chagall like quality to it.'
I love when I get the opportunity to see art work in
the artists' studio.
It's the perfect 'behind-the-scenes' - giving me a sense
of their bigger picture.
