body of work “final product; the things produced”

EDITOR’S LETTER

Issue #8 celebrates those who set out to create a legacy. Something that can be passed on to subsequent generations. A Body of Work. Artist Alison Van Pelt was an ovious choice to lead us into this issue. Her body of work is a celebration of color and texture with her very unique approach to photorealistic conceptual art. Beautiful and strong like her paintings who are a part of the most coveted collections in the world, Alison allows editor Claudia Taylor into her private world of paint with a peek at her quaint studio just a block from the ocean. The feature was shot by French photographer Philippe Bialobos, yet another artist who’s body of work is nothing less than impressive. No one can dispute that Land Rover is a prominent figure in this town and what a treat it was to hear Land Rover C.O.O. Gerry Mc Govern give a speech on how Modernism has influenced him since childhood and how it reflects in his design of Land Rover vehicles today. 90265 Magazine was one of a handful of press groups invited to his speech in Palm Springs during Modernism Week. We are very excited to bring you the EXCLUSIVE excerpts from Modernism + ME in this month’s issue ( the entire PDF is available on our website ). It is quite inspiring to see the many different designers and bodies of work that have influenced the megabrand.

It’s obvious we love chasing stories,which is what most publications do. But a story about girls who chase waves ? Well that just put us over the moon.. “Crushing on Both Coasts” is a new regular feature which establishes our Malibu - Montauk connection making it’s debut on the heels of the release of MTK - The Mag, a Montauk Lifestyle magazine. This inaugural installment has local surf goddess Frankie Harrer answering the call from surf legend Raimana Van Bastolaer to surf a serious swell in Teahupoo with her bi coastal bestie Quincy Davis in tow ( pun intended - they towed in - BIG TIME ). In closing, you may have noticed a few changes in the look and feel of the magazine. Issue 8 was the first opportunity where I felt we could exercise a little more creative muscle since our launch last September. In the beginning, it was more important for us to establish a clear difference between our publication and the other local mags and now that we have done that, 90265 Magazine will continue to evolve into a legacy worth leaving future generations. In essence, our Body of Work.
