GOING FOR BAROQUE:
The Cinematic Signature of Alex Prager — WORDS APARNA BAKHLE-ELLIS IMAGES COURTESY M+B GALLERY AND ALEX PRAGER
AT J U S T T H I R T Y-T H R E E , Alex Prager is already as golden as that famed Los Angeles ‘magic hour,’ a photographic term used to designate the first and final hour of sunlight during day. In this highly desirable light, shadows are less dark, contrast diminishes and highlights are much less likely to be overexposed. Prager’s images, foreboding in their large-scale, are stylistically suggestive of Sirk’s Technicolor, sharp and saturated moments hinting at repression, with the turbulence of emotion suspended in surreal cinematic glamour. They exude a suspense some have likened to Hitchcock, where a determined uneasiness pervades. Yet the heroines, as all her subjects are women, have a certain clarity and confidence of being, assured as they are of starring roles in the tundra of melodrama that comprises each still frame. A photographer who untiringly taught herself technique in her twenties after being inspired by a William Eggleston photo exhibit at the Getty, Prager disarms with a kind of Gothic innocence, untainted by art school theories about how to position her work. Although her images are unambiguously synthetic in their staging of scenarios that women, named Rita, Wendy, Jane, or Cathy, might daydream themselves into, peril lurks, beneath surfaces, and before, as well as after, the instant so dazzlingly captured. As a native Angeleno, Prager grew up a shade east of Hollywood in Los Feliz, where her grandmother raised her until she flew the coop. Her unconventional childhood gave shape to a nomadic existence, and the ensuing flux complicated her receiving a more formal education.
between SoCal and Florida, where her father lived, and Switzerland, where she sold knives one summer at the age of fourteen (!) and returned to for a few years, she took to exploring Europe for months after her seasonal job ended. Still Los Angeles based, she mines the myths that permeate this city to expose a melancholic, noir poetry in the remnants of feminine dreams on the brink of being dashed, albeit brightly in the constant saturation of California’s sun. Her raw spiritedness has hooked in many tastemakers, even garnering her a MoMA show, in 2010, where she participated in the New Photography exhibition. Her photographs are also in the permanent collections of several major museums including MoMA (New York), the Whitney Museum of
American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Moderna Museet (Stockholm). Prager has won an International Photography Award, as well as a Lucie, and publications such as Art in America, Vogue, Details, i-D, Tank, Dazed and Confused, New York Magazine and New York Times Magazine count her as a contributing photographer while she continues to exhibit her work to critical acclaim in galleries internationally. Fabrik caught up with Alex Prager, after a choice gig making a fashion film starring Dutch model Lara Stone for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and before she finishes mounting Compulsion, an upcoming show of her new work, which opens simultaneously in Los Angeles (M+B Gallery), London (Michael Hoppen Gallery) and New York (Yancey Richardson Gallery).
Fabrik: Growing up in Los Angeles as you did, how did you personally encounter the sense of artifice and melodrama that permeates your aesthetic? Alex Prager: This city has many facets. It is a good city to come to if you have big dreams. That said, a lot of those dreams can either become forgotten, slowly fade, or get brutally crushed all in one fell swoop when met with the more devious side of LA. It’s a wicked city ripe with melodrama.
Fabrik: The avant German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder once said, “Love is the best, most insidious, most effective instrument of social repression.” Hints of turbulent emotions, seething just beneath, and sometimes even above, the surface, also inform the narratives you construct in your photographs and short films. How do you frame your fashion and editorial work with regard to this particular idea of love, as some thing dazzling, uncertain, synthetic, and surreal? Do you see your work within the specific context of ‘magazines’ as advancing any alternative narratives about women and what we are made to understand is their ‘beauty’? AP: I try to keep my aesthetic when working on commissions. Sometimes they let me have full creative control in all areas, sometimes not as much, but so far I’ve been pretty lucky in producing things that are true to my vision.

Fabrik: Besides working, how do you have fun in Los Angeles? AP: I like to cook or eat at Flore, go hiking, play tennis in Griffith Park, drink wine with friends at Edendale, or Blair’s. I’m more of a daytime activity sort of person...I’m not really into going to clubs or anything, but I do like the occasional karaoke.
Fabrik: MoMA curator Roxanna Marcoci has described your work as “intentionally loaded” with “something pregnant, about to happen…” Whether still or moving, your images play with the element of suspense. As an artist and/or woman, what about uncertainty or ambiguity entices you? AP: I like leaving a story on a wall that still needs filling in. The idea that a total stranger might see one of my pictures and put their own take on it. Or try and figure out what’s going on in the picture based on what they’ve experienced in their own life - that's really great. A lot of times I’ll hear stories far more interesting than what I might have made up. I think my role as an artist is to spark the imagination in others.
Fabrik: You have described Los Angeles as a place that is both beautiful and magical. Please share something about its beauty as well as how, and perhaps where, magic is still intact here. AP: It’s a very photogenic city. I’ve lived here my whole life, born in Los Feliz, and yet almost everyday I find myself staring at something in wonder as though I’d never seen it before. How is it possible that the sky has so many different shades of blue on its way down to the horizon? I think the light in this city makes everything look a little bit surreal. It’s very magical indeed.
Fabrik: What, if anything, seems impossible in L.A.? AP: Public transport. I like that they’re trying to put in more bike lanes here and there, but come on. This city really needs to take public transportation seriously and start making it happen. It would make it so much better. That’s the main problem with LA.
Fabrik: You travel quite frequently for work. When away from Los Angeles, what do you long for that is still here? AP: My own bed. 16
Fabrik: Much of your work has a decidedly cinematic aesthetic, where you also reference and romanticize, as well as complicate, the myriad ways in which we understand and depict the 60s, 70s and early 80s eras. These periods seem so crucial with regard to defining certain notions about individuality and personal freedom from the restrictions of ‘society.’ As you continue to explore moving images, through your short films Despair and the soon to premiere La Petite Mort, what do you hope to say about how and what we see, as the ‘compulsive spectators’ we have become? AP: I suppose I just really hope you like the photographs and film enough to want to look and make your own conclusions. I can only give my take on what I’m feeling in the world, but everyone is feeling it in different ways. Maybe technology has been able to give us the impression we’re really connected because we know what’s going on, but I personally feel very disconnected sometimes. Especially when reading about some of the less thrilling things going on in the world that I feel very emotional towards but can do nothing about. It’s a false connect in a way and gives me a bit of a helpless feeling towards it all. I’m left staring at my computer.
Prager’s new work furthers her exploration of subversive narratives through the construction of “scenes” inspired by media tragedies and paired with emotive close-ups of eyes. The eyes, whether interpreted as belonging to the viewer or the subject, operate as a mode of investigation — an aid to decoding the scenes and implicating the viewer by provoking an emotional response.
Inspired by the photography of Weegee and Enrique Metinides and films such as Metropolis and Un Chien Andalou, Compulsion confirms Prager’s vivid cinematic aesthetic. Unlike her previous work, however, the protagonists now remain anonymous and distant. Prager’s new series investigates the complexity of observation within a society inundated by compulsive spectators, as well as the recurrent discourse in photography—that “meaning” is often derived from a multiplicity of gazes.

Fabrik: What is the most profound way in which Compulsion, your new series of works (opening at M+B on April 7th), differs from your previous work? AP: I’m not sure the fashion magazines will be as keen on hiring me.
In addition to provocative juxtapositions, Prager manipulates the scenes through her choice of cropping, continually interrogating the truth content within photography — a trope as old as the medium itself. As artist John Baldessari has noted: “For most of us photography stands for the truth, but a good artist can make a harder truth by manipulating forms… It fascinates me how [one] can manipulate the truth so easily by the way [you] juxtapose opposites or crop the image or take it out of context.”
Prager’s altered and manufactured scenes, in conjunction with the evocative eyes remove the images from their original context and allow them to acquire new associations.
In her new short film, La Petite Mort, starring French actress Judith Godrèche, Prager navigates the mysteries of death through a woman experiencing the boundaries of her body and those of this world. Prager’s La Petite Mort (which literally translates to “the little death,” but is a common French expression for an orgasm) declares that “the act of dying and the act of transcendent love are two experiences cut from the same cloth — the former a grand exit, and the latter a slow escape. Indeed, many of the world’s greatest poets have long have long considered a passionate interlude as man’s closest moment to seeing god.” The film features music by composer Ali Helnwein and Director of Photography Matthew Libatique (Black Swan, Iron Man, Requiem for a Dream).
Fabrik: Within your work, much has been made of the influence of Weegee, Enrique Metinides, Guy Bourdain, Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, David Lynch, Fellini, Douglas Sirk and Alfred Hitchcock. Who are some photographers, filmmakers and artists not mentioned here whose work affects you emotionally? AP: Lucian Freud, Balthus, Breugel, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Joel Sternfeld, Bruce Gilden, Maya Deren, Jean Cocteau, Luis Bunuel...and the list goes on and on.
Fabrik: Do you collect art and if so, whose works might we find in your collection? AP: Yes! Vanessa Prager, Mercedes Helnwein, Asger Carlsen, Clint Peterson, Bryten Goss, Justin-John Greene, Mel Kadel, William Rugen.

ECHO IN THREE PHASES - PHASES 1.1 • © JOHN KLUKAS
The Photography of
P H O T O G R A P H E R J O H N K L U K A S was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. After receiving his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, his interest in pursuing photography brought him first to Bangkok, Thailand and then to New York City, where he works primarily in fashion photography. His work has appeared in a wide range of art and editorial publications. For the last few years, John has also created album covers for Ghostly International Records. His solo show, opening at Edgar Varela Fine Arts in L.A. this spring, is also part of MOPLA (Month of Photography Los Angeles). John Klukas candidly shared some of his insights about Surrealism and its influence upon his practice. From the beginning I have been heavily influenced by surrealism. In fact, the name of my website, 45houses, comes from André Breton’s surrealist manifesto (1924). During a discussion of Surrealist language, and, in the broadest sense, an illustration regarding the disconnect between language and meaning, he brings up the case of a man with Ganser Syndrome, while speaking with his doctor. The doctor asks the man, “What is your name?” to which the patient replies, “Forty-five houses.” I remember being enthralled by this elegantly simple example, and further, excited by this notion of an elevated role for the subconscious or unconscious mind that Surrealism proposes. While much has changed for me since those formative years, I am still fascinated by what lurks below the surface of our conscious minds. In the Surrealist tradition, I draw upon dreams for much of my work, which usually deliver powerful images to me, that I then use as a basis to build a story that fits into a broader context. Many of my images are of powerful, aggressive female figures that defy our culture’s contemporary archetypes. Two perfect examples of this in my work would be the series “The Phantom Queen” and “Echo in Three Phases.” The idea for “The Phantom Queen” came seemingly out of nowhere and it started as this notion of a hyper-aggressive shape shifter who often chose to present herself as a raven. So I started with this idea, began doing some visual research and came across the Celtic Goddess Morrigan, a tripartite, shape-shifting Goddess of prophecy and death, sex and bloodlust. To me, she seemed to be the violent embodiment of the
THE PHANTOM QUEEN 2409 • © JOHN KLUKAS
potency of female power. I folded in parts of mythology of this phantom queen and started to work in the symbology associated with her as a means to add depth to both the character and images. With “Echo in Three Phases,” I started more with an idea for a technique of shooting through a pane of glass or plastic and then using different types of liquids on the pane in order to warp and distort the image; achieving an effect reminiscent of some of Francis Bacon’s paintings. At some point, the model requested reference images, which forced me to start pulling together images that conveyed what I was thinking. At that point, all I had really thought about was the way in which I was planning to distort the images. So I began delving through my cache of inspiration images that I collect for references and through the process of successive rounds of selecting and then editing down images that I feel are relevant, without actually knowing the story yet, a story actually started to emerge. Like a derivative of some type of Surrealist free association exercise except with images, in this instance, what emerged was a visceral and dynamic character that comes apart as the story progresses.
She decays from a
dark and mysterious figure, to an ephemeral apparition and finally to a violent rejection of corporeal form. Despite the frightening nature of the transformation, there is an essential beauty that permeates all three phases. This, I think, is an essential component of much of my most personal work. A deep tension between beauty and terror; sex and death. A selection of John’s work appears on the following pages. — "The Phantom Queen" opens at Edgar Varela Fine Arts on Saturday, April 28th and runs through May 19th. Edgar Varela Fine Arts 727 S.

CATHERINE OPIE: AN AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER â€” WORDS PHIL TARLEY IMAGES COURTESY CATHERINE OPIE AND REGEN PROJECTS, LOS ANGELES
first met Catherine Opie photographing her for Stephen Cohen at the opening night of Photo LA. A tremendous woman with an even more tremendous resume, Opie is one of Los Angelesâ€™ foremost photographers. She gave a keynote seminar at Photo LA where she signed her new book Inauguration and talked about her career and practice. She has been photographing the intersection of American landscapes and the faces that inhabit them for many, many years. Opie is best known for her documentary portraits of football players, surfers and her photography of gay, lesbian and the transgendered community, which include her own bold and honest self portraits as an out lesbian. She has two young children Sarah and Oliver and a life partner, Julie Burleigh, a painter. Opie is represented by Regen Projects here in Los Angeles and has shown in numerous solo exhibitions all over the world. In 1995, she was included in the Whitney Biennale. Her sadomasochistic portraits jolted the art world. 44

Perhaps her major retrospective at the Guggenheim, in 2008, was the most comprehensive exhibition of all the major bodies of her work- unifying her freeways, icehouses and portraits into a single visionary display that gave context, meaning and juxtaposition to the diversity of her subjects. An educator as well as an artist — Opie has taught fine art at Yale and currently teaches photography at UCLA — she graciously gave of her time to speak with me about her work. Fabrik: How did growing up in Ohio shape you as an artist? CO: I lived in Sandusky till I was thirteen. Lots of artists from that part of Ohio. Andrea Bowers and I grew up 15 miles from each other. The landscape shaped me. I always had a cornfield across from my house …always had a lot of time to contemplate what was interesting for me. Fabrik: How did your parent’s upbringing affect your artistry? CO: Dad owned a craft-based company that built découpage boxes. My uncle and my aunt were artists. We lived around interesting people who celebrated artists. They were worried about how I would make a living. Fabrik: What do you think is your most compelling body of work? CO: All of them are compelling for me at different times of my life. The hardest to shoot were the icehouses…because of the weather. Fabrik: It says in your Wikipedia blurb “Her assertive portraits bring queers to a forefront that is normally silenced by societal norms.” Is that part of a political agenda? CO: Homophobia and society …confronting and creating work that makes us visible is part of what I do. We live under an incredible amount of homophobia. Fabrik: What was it like to have a Guggenheim retrospective? Has it changed the way you are perceived as an artist? CO: People understand more about my multiple bodies of work and the way they came together. The Guggenheim showed people that there was a common thread in all my work. I am interested in community and relationships and how they are formed. »

Fabrik: What are you shooting now? CO: Right now I am shooting these abstract landscapes. It’s about conjuring one’s own memory of landscapes. And I’m doing portraits in studio, shooting on black backgrounds. My son is in one, my trainer and Kate and Laura (Mulleavy) founders of Rodarte the fashion line, they’re in another. Fabrik: What’s the name of the fashion line? CO: Rodarte. Have you heard of them? Fabrik: No. CO: They do wonderful, very feminine clothes. Fabrik: Oh… Do you have any favorite writers? CO: I’m reading IQ 85 by Haruki Murakami. He’s amazing. Joan Dideon, of course. And Susan Sontag, she is very inspirational. Fabrik: What about galleries here in L.A. Do you have any favorites? CO: I try to see as much new work as I can - I’m going to New York in a few days. In L.A. I like to go to Susanne Vielmetter...Blum and Poe and Regen Projects, of course. I ‘ve been with them since 1992. Fabrik: Is there anyone you truly adore? CO: My partner Julie. Oliver and Sarah, our kids. We’ve been together 12 years in November. Fabrik: Well then…when it’s all over, how would you like to be remembered? You know the words on the tombstone kind of thing. CO: As a person who was relentless in my goals as an artist…and as a person of character who believes in equality. Catherine Opie’s honesty and bravery as an artist is a good and true measure of her character. She is a unique American voice; a singularity within what oftentimes is a howling cacophony of superficial art. I would proudly hang one of her brazen, queer self-portraits in my home on my favorite wall.

VINTAGE IMAGERY: BACK TO THE FUTURE — WORDS LANEE NEIL
THROUGH THE LENS
I enter the party to see dozens of people huddled in a semicircle, silently staring in one direction. What did I get myself into: an artists’ séance, a meditation session, or maybe a covert operation for the Moon sect? Peeking around to get a better look, the partygoers were simply soaking in the power of a still image. Coinciding with Photo LA, Patrick Alt hosts an annual photo fest of his own. Professionals and students alike show photographic work in front of a rapt audience passionate for straight photography and historical (also referred to as alternative) processes like wet plate collodium, cyanotype, platinum, and silver gelatin. It’s the anti-digital photography fest. Digital photography has evened the playing field and made everyone a photographer, able to produce fast, cheap, fleeting images with a click of a cell phone. But a return to straight photography and hand-printed images is emerging. Like the farm-to-table movement, society is craving human connection and pride of craftsmanship once again. Even Kodak senses the trend with their recent announcement of discontinuing digital cameras to focus on film. During this party dedicated to foundational photography, I met four artists of the alternative process who are pursuing the path less taken to encourage the viewer to slow down, absorb, connect and dream again. » Web fabrikmagazine.com

1. L U T H E R G E R L A C H Luther, born on a farm, began building things by hand at an early age from antique tools. Since 1983, he’s been studying 19th century photography books and perfecting the wet plate collodium technique, one of the oldest forms of reproducing an image. Wet plate collodium is the antithesis of digital photography. It’s slow, cumbersome, dangerous, irreproducible and beautiful. It produces a ghostly image transferred onto glass. Each image takes roughly thirty minutes to create and must be processed on the spot. To handle the rigors of this, Luther has two portable darkrooms to accommodate the urgency: a shuttle bus and a Ford truck, but he has also been know to use tents and wheelbarrows. Luther explains why he persists on the laborious, twenty-step process to make one image, “It’s a one on one experience. Every step I make by hand, thus it’s poetic, certainly sensual. It’s a dirty process, which makes me imminently connected to each image I create.” Because there are no negatives and no film, the size of the image is defined by the camera. Throwing off traditional 8x10 camera confines, Luther,

with help from Patrick Alt, built the world’s largest camera: a 25’’ x 30’’ glass plate camera they affectionately named ‘the behemoth.’ Captivated with Luther’s sense for the ethereal and his Proustian approach to photography, First Lady Michelle Obama is one of his most renowned collectors. Two of his pieces currently hang in the White House. A retrospective show of Luther’s work will be at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, November 2012. www.luthergerlach.com

2. LINDSEY ROSS “Just because something is shot or printed with a historical process does not make it good art,” says Lindsey Ross, recent MDA Photography graduate of Brooks Institute. In the “American War” series, she employed the cyanotype process to fully immerse herself in the experience of producing images in a post-War America with limited resources. Cyanotype, invented in 1842, utilizes cyanide and UV light to reveal a cyan blue photographic print. Out of an efficiency studio the size of a Beverly Hills’ closet, a communal bathroom as her nighttime darkroom and the hood of her VW convertible, Lindsey created a cyanotype series of harrowing, weighty images questioning our obsession with war(s). Her work is an amalgamation of modern meets vintage, inspired by the works of Marcia Resnick and Francesca Woodman. She further explains, “I

work in the lineage of conceptual photographers who approach ideas about aestheticization of suffering and war. Even if you broaden the scope to conceptual photographers and those who employ historical processes, you don’t see much crossover. Sally Mann and Chris McCaw are both exceptions to this.” Lindsey reiterated the current need for connectivity in a modern world. “I think people are trying to reconnect to the physical world in so many ways and alternative processes are one of them.” Her “American War” series in featured at Acero Gallery, Santa Barbara, June 7th, 2012. www.lindseyrossphoto.com 60

3 . P AT R I C K A LT Serendipity and beauty motivates Patrick’s passion for platinum printing. Like wet plate collodium, it cannot be enlarged but it can be reproduced, and was a revolutionary evolution in the photographic process. Speaking softly like an enlightened sage, Patrick lights up as he explains this dedication to a near two hundred year old photographic process, “Platinum imbues the image with layers of complexity and 3-D like tonal depth that forces the viewer to engage.” As a master of perfection, it’s no surprise he is known by his contemporaries as one of the world’s best platinum printers. Patrick has been at it for over thirty years, all self-taught, trial by error. Beyond platinum printing, women and Americana landscapes are Patrick’s source of splendor. He photographs women in an attempt to underWeb fabrikmagazine.com

stand them (he says he still hasn’t after 40 years of shooting them), and with landscapes he seeks the ‘oddly, wonderful human imprints’ upon the land. Now he’s creating photographic sculptures of found objects, natural elements and hand-built frames to create altar-type tributes for his “Goddess” series of women dressed in tribal headdresses and ethnic accoutrements. With the humble sincerity of a saint, he declares, “When I look at my prints, it amazes me that I can create such beauty.” He has no tolerance for anything less than excellence, no matter the time and effort it takes. He says with platinum printing and large format cameras, it takes ‘God-like patience to do it.’ When a student of his proudly denounced using a large format for the ease of a digital camera, he asked, “When did laziness become a virtue?’’ His work is represented by Peter Fetterman Gallery. www.patrickalt.com

4 . M A R C VA L E S E L L A After many failed attempts to recreate the feeling of light of a Jeanloup Sieff photograph he owned, Marc Valesella simply called him up and asked for help with printing. Sieff obliged and apprenticed him over six months. Silver gelatin printing, using silver halide to create black and white images, is the most contemporary of the alternative processes. Before digital, it was the standard method until a decade ago. Inspired by NASA’s photos of the moon and the acutance of 1960s military spy photography, Marc has pushed the process to bestow small and medium format negatives with razor-like sharpness and luminous contrast. Like man cannot live on bread alone, neither can Marc be satisfied with craft alone. He explains, “I am not happy just creating a beautiful print. If I allow myself to stop there, I’ve lost my edge as a fine art photographer.”
THROUGH THE LENS
Marc explains his revelation after visiting Donald Judd’s military barracks in 1993, “Marfa is the perfect osmosis of both craft and concept. Art without craft is like a score without a musician, concept without craft is just confusion.” As a master printer for photographers like Helmut Newton, Julius Shulman, Julian Wasser and Christopher Williams, craft is king for Valesella. Yet his quest remains to challenge traditional boundaries of photography with the unorthodox. Marc Valesella’s “Dreams” show exhibits at Cuny NYC, Fall 2012. www.marcvalesella.com

THE MARKET FOR CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY IN 2012 â€” WORDS NICHOLAS FORREST
he market for contemporary photography has undergone drastic changes since the dizzying heights of the art market boom that came to an abrupt end in 2008. Unable to justify the high prices that were paid for the work
of many contemporary photographers during the boom years, collectors and investors shied away from artists who did not have the history or credentials to back up their prices. Thankfully, the market has improved considerably since 2008, but only for a select few artists. The most successful contemporary photographers of late are Cindy Sherman and Andreas Gursky who, along with Richard Prince, are responsible for all of the top ten highest prices achieved for contemporary photography at auction and have each claimed the top spot on the ladder over the last five years. The most successful contemporary photographer to date is Andreas Gursky who can lay claim to five of the top ten highest prices. Three of those were achieved with his 99 cent and 99 cent II photos which are two of the most iconic works of contemporary photography. 66
2011 was a big year for photography, which saw the record for the highest price paid for a contemporary photograph at auction change twice. The first new record was set in May when Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #96 was sold by Christie’s New York for $3,890,500. This was the first time that the record had been broken since 2007 when Sotheby’s sold Richard Prince’s Untitled (Cowboy) for $3,401,000. Only five months later in November, the record was broken again when Andreas Gursky’s Rhein II fetched $4,338,500. The market for Cindy Sherman’s photographs has been given a big boost by the major Cindy Sherman retrospective being held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art from the 26th of February to the 11th of June. Two major collectors of Sherman’s work, Eli Broad and hedge-fund manager Adam Sender, have lent photos to the exhibition, which has brought together more than 170 photographs covering the artist’s career from the mid 1970s to the present. The most recent sale of a photo by Sherman took place 16th of February when Phillips de Pury sold the artist’s Untitled #410 in London for £433,250 against an estimate of £200,000-300,000. According to Phillips de Pury, “Untitled #410 belongs to Cindy Sherman’s Clowns series executed between 2003 and 2004. It is one of the first five images from the series, and an edition of this particular

work is housed in the permanent collection of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.” One of the factors that resulted in Sherman standing the test of time is the fact that her photographs are not merely a collection of random images but constitute a relatively cohesive story centered on a central theme of gender and identity that has been an integral part of her oeuvre for decades. Being able to associate a single image with a more extensive body of work makes a photo much more appealing. Of the

three contemporary photographers who hold the top ten auction records, Richard Prince is the most controversial. An image from Richard Prince’s Cowboy series was the first work of photography to achieve more than $1,000,000 at auction when it sold at a Christie’s sale for $1,248,000 in 2005. New York dealer Stellan Holm was the winning bidder. Interestingly, when interviewed about the event’s importance to the photography community, Prince said that: Web fabrikmagazine.com
“I’ve never been included in any photography-based survey, museum show, and photo magazine. I’ve heard that Peter Galassi (Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York) hates my work. That he would never acknowledge it in the photo department at MoMA. I think he’s wrong. I think my photo work is all about photography…When you don’t have any training in a particular medium you can bring something to it that hasn’t been brung (sic)…I ‘brung’ the

sheriff and I shot him. I killed photography. Maybe they hated that. Maybe I should have ‘rescued’ photography.” (artcritical.com, December 2005, David Cohen, Editor) Unfortunately for Prince, he inadvertently predicted his own downfall, photographically speaking. According to Artprice, US$100 invested in 1998 in a photographic work by Richard Prince had an average value of US$520 in October 2011. That figure was US$1561 in 2009. It seems that Prince underestimated the importance of curatorial recognition – something that both Sherman and Gursky have received plenty of. One of the only Chinese photographers to emerge from the art market downturn unscathed was Ai Weiwei. His 6.3-4, a series of 24 photographs which document the stages of construction of China’s Olympic Stadium, sold for £145,250 against an estimate of £70,000-90,000 during Phillips De Pury’s April 2011 London BRIC auction setting a new auction record for a photograph by the artist. When it comes to up and coming photographers, the British artistic duo Gilbert and George may be the ones to watch. The pair’s Bloody Life No. 13 fetched £1.27m ($1,999,003) against an estimate of £700,000-1,000,000 ($1,100,000 - $1,500,000) during Christie’s Post War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction held in London on the 14 February 2012. According to Christie’s, “over the course of their remarkable career, Gilbert & George have pioneered new directions in European conceptual art. Elevating photography to the status of art, they introduced new, enlarged scales of reproduction into the medium, creating ingenious compilations of multiple prints into a single work.”

avid Fahey is tall. An ample man, distinguished by a generous head of long, neatly kept white hair; he is quick-smiled, warm and friendly. Fahey is the best kind of art dealer. He is the consummate raconteur. Every photograph he possesses triggers a terrific story; narratives of the countless world-class photographers Fahey has shown during his thirty-six year career. David started taking pictures when he was sixteen, while he studied guitar. Shooting was his free ticket into Los Angeles nightclubs like the Troubador, the Light House, Shelley’s Manhole – a trade for his photographic services. After coming home from the war in Vietnam, an experience which seems to have seared a love of photojournalism into his soul, David realized that there were lots of photographers but only a few dealers. “I knew that I could have more fun selling photographs than taking them.” 76
DAVID FAHEY • PHOTO © PHIL TARLEY
Fahey got his first job in 1975 at Los Angeles’s original photo gallery, G. RAY HAWKINS, where he curated a show for Edward Weston. In 1987, he started Fahey/Klein with partner, Randee Klein Devlin. Ken Devlin, who shares his wife Randee's passion for photography, joined the gallery as co-owner and partner in 1998. Fahey/Klein is the oldest, the biggest and unarguably one of the most important photography galleries in Los Angeles. As I waited for my interview in his commodious La Brea Avenue gallery, Marco, an associate, toured me through the current hang of classic vintage prints, naming all the photographers for me. Then, he guided me through a narrow photo gallery-library, past cases of white Formica slide-out drawers that held the thousands of photographic prints in the collection, and on into David’s office. The focal point of Fahey’s inner sanctum was a busy working desk stacked with books and papers. The office was defined by a massive black and white print of Muhammad Ali that hung above a crimson leather couch. Fahey surrounds himself with an ever-changing array of some of the most compelling large-format photographs ever shot. A visit to Fahey/Klein often leaves me humbled, in awe of the amazing prints that hang on his gallery walls. I tend to linger on the images that send me off into a strange kind of ecstasy, an ecstasy that somehow has always eluded me in churches and temples but seems to grip me up in a very special way when I see the human condition captured on paper in a revelatory flash of insight and exaltation... Fahey tells me that, “photojournalists do what photography does best… they render reality in such a way that is so authentic and indelible.” He gestures with his chin at Sudan, a James Nachtwey print on the wall across his desk. “That is inherently different than the photography that is set up...like Herb Ritts, one of the first local boys who did good. Herb was so likeable. He had the ability to gain his subject’s trust and confidence to shoot them with honesty and to portray their inner essence in an artful and wonderful way so they could reveal themselves to the camera…People loved and trusted him. I was the first to show Herb Ritts.” Fahey seems to brag like a proud father. “His True Blue portrait of Madonna is amazing.” On Andy Warhol: Fahey worked for Interview Magazine for many 78

He was fascinated by Hollywood and the BBC…the Billionaires Boys Club.” On David LaChapelle: “David is very expressive, a real talent...imaginative… and he is able to be child-like and playful. David’s work is quite full of fun, he is a very clever artist and quite prolific.” On Helmut Newton: “Helmut had a whole new way of seeing women. He made them masculine, assertive and aggressive. He was always full of ideas.” David’s phone rang and our interview was over. The two hours I spent with him steeped in his world of highly potent, elegant imagery had passed too quickly. My scribbled notes and the photos I shot in David’s office are remembrances of a few hours well spent, in the company of a California pioneer - a man who was the first to bring much of the world’s best photography to Los Angeles. Fahey/Klein regularly mounts two-person exhibitions every five weeks. There is always something wonderful to see. Web fabrikmagazine.com
KIRK PEDERSEN: NO MAP REQUIRED — WORDS ERIC JUNKER IMAGES COURTESY KIRK PEDERSEN
sk Kirk Pedersen about his journey from accomplished painter and teacher, to photographer and bookmaker, to prolific limited-editionart-book-publisher and he’ll tell you, “I don't have a roadmap.” Indeed, metaphors for journeys and transformations don’t apply, because he's comfortably all of these things at once. No map required. His subtle Western drawl and hospitable demeanor belie an intensity and focus that’s more apparent in the shear volume and quality of his work. His ZERO+ imprint published 12 limited edition titles in 2011 alone. He creates monumental abstract paintings and shows them in galleries around the world. He holds a full time teaching position at a local college. His travels? Seoul, Shenyang, Bangkok, Beijing, Macau, Shinjuku...Pomona is home base. One pauses for the punch line about Pomona, but we shouldn't be surprised to find this level of sophisticated creative diligence coming from the unusually fecund Claremont/Pomona womb. Though removed from Los Angeles’ assorted art hubs by 30 plus roaring miles of anxious freeway, this cultural border zone has nurtured a diverse assortment of shining creative lights and visionaries including the Dust Brothers, Chris Burden, Ben Harper, Tom Waits, James Turrell, Art Clokey, Frank Zappa, Mort Sahl, Peter Drucker, Hal Glicksman and maybe Jessica Alba. That would be a fun party, and well worth the drive.
POPPY, SHIBUYA, TOKYO (2009)
LOOK RIGHT – LOOK LEFT, HONG KONG (2008)
The depth of Pedersen’s energy and vision are quite apparent in two beautiful volumes of his photographic work: Urban Asia and Tradeoffs. These are not books of photographic reproductions; rather the books themselves are self-contained works where Pedersen's images exist in their purest form. They are sense maps of the free and energetic ramblings that produced them. The book form liberates the images from the sentimentality of framed gallery art, and allows them to be enjoyed as manic, introspective and slightly dangerous urban adventures. It's about experiencing the books as much as the photos; their portability, the feel of the pages, their heft, and the pleasure of autonomously hustling through their pages where we are left alone and free to be surprised. Pedersen’s images themselves are both familiar and abstract. For those of us illiterate in hànzì, hiragana, and katakana, the typography becomes pure graphic pleasure and painterly gesture in photographs of walls layered with rust, decaying wood, graffiti and tattered posters. These can be savored for an elegant formalism that has much in common with Pedersen’s huge paintings. The bustling pedestrians that burst into the photo frames more frequently in the second volume, however, are less formal and will be entirely familiar to harried city dwellers everywhere. They are us, but there is distance. Observing the trigonometries of their interaction (or lack thereof) within the cityscapes can be likened to the experience of sitting in a cafe in a place where we don't speak the language. Being an outsider allows us to more fully take in the totality of the scenes, because we are not distracted by the minutia of tactical understanding or implication. This outsider’s disconnect instigates the moment best explained by that great disconnector Willem de Kooning: we become “a slipping glimpser, with a strong sense of the fleeting moment in which people are caught unawares." This applies equally to the observer and the observed. In this de Kooning moment, Pedersen's work allows us to experience the infinite unexpected disassociative possibility of things. In that space we can make up stories. That's the power and the pleasure of these books. Between their covers lies a great deal of fun for those of us who enjoy the vertiginous feeling of the ground subtly slipping beneath our feet.

ustin Young, whose work has shown at LACMA, LACE, the Hammer Museum, the Stephen Cohen Gallery and countless other spaces and places in and around the avant California scene, is bristling with excite-
ment about his latest project Tranimal…Young’s new endeavor - a collaboration with Squeaky Blonde and Fade-Dra, is infused with the artist’s high voltage underground creative energy. Tranimal is a big and bold project. It incorporates video, photography, and interactive sound design. And its taking performance art to an operatic level. I spoke with the Austin one morning, just after a night of performance at the Machine Project and he told me about his creative partners. Participants are put through an assembly line where Squeaky Blonde, Fade-Dra , Young costume them, make-them up and turn them into a cast of glamorous, genderless creatures. Mark Allen, director of Machine Project, makes light sensitive circuitry boards that are sewn into theor costumes. The boards have knobs that the performers use to change the sound frequencies, creating musical score with light and movement. Juliana Snapper, an opera singer and performance artist, guides the players to find the vocal expression of their new identities. The particpant-performers become collaborators in a musical performance. Then Young shoots formal portraits and video of the end result. Here is a sneak peak of his work. 96

COMING OUT: John Paul Jones: Image and Object For much of the postwar (hereafter known as the “PST”) era, John Paul Jones was one of southern California’s leading printmakers. Jones, however, thought of himself as a painter who made prints – and, later, turned more or less entirely to making sculpture. That’s not the only about-face in Jones’ career: an abstractionist early on, later much respected for his softly rendered, mysterious, almost ghostly figures occupying immense, indistinct landscapes, he returned to non-objectivity in his last couple of decades. Indeed, his work in three dimensions contains no figures. That is, it contains no figures until you walk up to (and in certain cases into or under) it: the elementary but dramatic architectural premises of those geometric wood structures concern the framing or even measuring of the human body, describing walls and stairs and portals and other “stages” for human activity with a

simple, unadorned elegance. By all accounts an inspiring teacher, Jones also set an ornery example of artistic contrariness, defying his audience to peg him or predict his next move. But the zigs and zags Jones’ oeuvre made throughout the latter half of the 20th century were not evasive diversions so much as methodical investigations, consistent with Jones’ clear and deep intellectual and emotional investment.
COMING OUT, GOING IN
GOING IN: Ben Sakoguchi: Paintings 1966 to Present (THROUGH APRIL 21) Another “artist’s artist” from the PST years, Ben Sakoguchi was – has been – throughout his career one of America’s harshest, most consistent, and grimly funny social-commentary artists. Blessed (or, perhaps, cursed) with the wit and the outrage of a political cartoonist, Sakoguchi has skewered social and (especially) political follies for upwards of half a century. Indeed, his parodies and condemnations of contemporary conditions go back to the Vietnam War, and his no-holds-barred approach has maintained ever since the coruscating tone with which that era’s counterculture answered power. Sakoguchi, still going strong, has lost or even softened nothing. And this show allows up-close-and-personal experiences with the objects of his wrath, making sense of his insistence on painting rather than drawing (or, if you would, muralizing) his statements. Sakoguchi is a veritable grandfather of both “newbrow” and graffiti art; it’s never gotten more surrealistically pop than this. Had he created his nasty take-offs on orange crate labels or vast compilations of mediated figures as funny-page japes or spray-painted tags, they would not have the same devastating, pull-you-into-the-picture-and-rub-your-nose-in-governmental-miscreancy power; his awkwardly translated appropriations from newspaper photos and TV captures radiate a heat their sources lack. There are pictures here that will make you cry; many of these comprise a grid of little narrative paintings highlighting (often astounding) incidents during the Japanese-American internment of World War II. For Sakoguchi, who lived through that affront (and who here documents its effects on his parents), we are still living down the 20th century.

he past six months of Pacific Standard Time exhibitions have given us the opportunity to re-look at our recent history and reframe it. And while this may change the way we perceive the artworks individually and as a whole, the visual images and objects remain materially fixed in their original form. Not so with music, especially the experimental electronic works of the past forty years which are open to renewal and rebirth as they transit from old to new technologies. Sonic materials can recycle and reconfigure in new arrangements, and variant mutable hybrids emerge. Such is the case with the grandfather of techno Morton Subotnick, who joins up with the always daring 106
E.A.R. UNIT MEMBERS ERIC KM CLARK, AMY KNOLES, AND VICKI RAY
California E.A.R. Unit for a live revisit to his iconic landmark works, Silver Apples of the Moon (1966) and A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur (1977). From the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s, Subotnick explored the McLuhanesque question, â€œWhat is the message of the phonograph record,â€? working with Buchla synthesizers and tape recorders to create electronic works meant for the home environment. After a decade of composing and thinking about the nature of recorded sound as medium, the answer to the question of what to do with the technology in live performances finally came together in A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur. Long before digital technology made sampling and looping a commonplace technique, Web fabrikmagazine.com
Subotnick’s concept for performances was to gather together and organize all the musical materials created for a particular record, including the discarded music and musical fragments. Then, by adding new electronic ‘patches’ to the assembled materials, a live performance environment could be created that would allow for the kind of spontaneous performance improvisation and decision-making he envisioned. Not an easy feat in 1977. Not really possible until fairly recently. But today with Ableton Live on his Mac and the new Buchla 200e, he can do it, thus bringing the earlier pieces to maturity in a new body. In the latest version of Silver Apples of the Moon / A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur, created in collaboration with the California E.A.R. Unit, Subotnick reselects sections from the original recordings that he likes and wants to work with and loops them. The live performance improvisations by E.A.R. Unit’s Amy Knoles (percussion), Vicki Ray (piano), Eric KM Clark (violin), and Subotnick (analog Bucla) will be based on this pre-determined semi-structure of loop environments. The audience quite literally tunes into the creative life cycle of the musical artwork from its inception to its state of becoming in the present moment. The experience is kaleidoscopic and multi-dimensional as past, present, and future intersect, entwine and unravel, and rewind again. A few squeaks, a drop of water hitting a metal surface, bell-like, then falling like the first ripples of rain. They gather into a rhythmic pattern, a rapid patter. New layers appear. Dance beats that make you want to move – head, shoulders, feet to the rhythm. Another layer of long extended flowing sounds whistle past, speed increasing. Sound on the run. You are flying, streams of light rushing past. Polyrhythmic layers of metallic and electronic sound in repetitive patterns inter-cut and dissolve into surprising new beats. A sudden opening of space admits shimmers and spackles of high pitched glass-like tones, random as chimes caught in a breeze, joined by crickets here and there, slowly becoming more dense, then fading to a note or two, a ripple in the open spaces. The sonic journey travels downriver in an electronic forest filled with high pitched extended sounds like long bird calls in conversation, a dialogue of trills. Then silence, followed by buzzing electronic spurts and hisses. They meet the high-pitched tinkles, tossed like pebbles into the stream. The rush of currents in eddies. Shadows of sound pass over a persistent rhythmic beat in the under-

current, whistling in the wind. Silence. Random voices hidden from view but sending messages into places filled with anticipation. A rich symphonic voice intercedes and departs. A melodic rapid chattering becomes a group discussion and a bass bellow makes a point. A play of light bouncing on reflective surfaces, settles into quiet. A single stone drops, a leaf. That is just a sample of one listenerâ€™s experience of the original recording. What comes next in the live performance is a high-definition landscape of possibilities and discoveries, of hybrids and mutations producing new palettes of color and tone, timbre and texture, out of the past, into the future. Interacting in temporal space, the recordings become another instrument in the electro-acoustic ensemble. This collaboration celebrates the California E.A.R. Unitâ€™s 30th anniversary performing electro-acoustic and live interactive computer music, and its long
history with Subotnick, who was Knoles’s mentor at CalArts in the early 1980s. When she founded the E.A.R. Unit, he inspired her to “bravely embrace electronics” and now it is “in her genes.” Knoles’s collaboration as a performer with Subotnick goes back to the 1988 production of Hungers at ARS Electronica. In this experimental multi-media opera involving layers of live performance, acoustical and computer-generated music by Subotnick, and video and computer images by Ed Emshwiller, state of the art real-time sound and image processing systems expanded and complemented the performances by a singer, a dancer, and three musicians. The latest re-creation of Silver Apples of the Moon (1966) and A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur (1977) embodies Knoles’s own history and evolution from CalArts music student to world-class innovator, performer, and composer. In her most recent collaborations, she composes and performs computerassisted live electronic music with percussion controllers and interactive video, and her work has accurately been described as being of “frightening beauty, fascinating, complex.” The California E.A.R. Unit has earned international critical acclaim, and many awards for its contributions to the field of contemporary American music. Vicki Ray, who has been with the E.A.R. Unit for seventeen years, came to this kind of music at its inception and she shares the same history and experience as Knoles. Whereas the youngest member, Eric Clark, enters at the point where the history and tradition has already been well documented and he brings a different perspective to it. This live performance of Silver Apples of the Moon / A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur tops off three decades of riveting E.A.R. Unit concerts. This is a one time only experience that won’t be seen or heard again in Los Angeles. — REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, Downtown L.A. 631 W. 2nd St. Los Angeles, CA 90012
ART ABOUT TOWN WITH PETER FRANK
MUSEUM VIEWS PASADENA MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ART L.A. Raw: Abject Expressionism in Los Angeles, 1945-1980 THROUGH MAY 20 One of Pacific Standard Time’s last hurrahs is also one of its most remarkable, as it examines a tendency in southern California art that few have acknowledged but keeps erupting to the surface. Indeed, many of the artists featured in this survey, as well as the post-PST artists they influenced, are among L.A.’s best known, precisely for the harrowing view of humanity they proffer. From Hans Burkhardt to Paul McCarthy (and beyond), “L.A. Raw” avers, a funky, corrosive, highly critical and yet highly spiritual – in sum, highly existential – impulse has coursed through artistic practice here, bespeaking a streak of moral challenge, even fury, that entirely belies California’s laid-back reputation. It manifested in a number of “movements,” such as the mid-century cubo-expressionism of Rico
Warshaw; the “Watts renaissance” assemblage of Betye Saar, John Outterbridge, and David Hammons; the deliberately clumsy figuration of artists
Garabedian, Roberto Chavez, and other painters associated with the CeeJe Gallery; the Pop-adjacent symbol-signage

of Wallace Berman, James Gill, and Llyn Foulkes; and the body-focused performance art of McCarthy, Barbara Smith, Chris Burden, and Nancy Buchanan. One of the exhibition’s most surprising and illuminating positions, in fact, is the continuity of spirit and practice
ART ABOUT TOWN WITH PETER FRANK
it reveals between soCal painting, sculpture, and performance (not to mention printmaking and mural painting). Less surprising, but even more illuminating, is the show’s insistence on the the central presence of the human figure, no matter how ethereal or atomized, in all this work. Another significant and especially salutary aspect of “L.A. Raw” is its recovery (not just rediscovery) of so many brilliant and gutsy but all-but-forgotten artists from Jan Stussy and James Strombotne to Joyce Treiman and Les Biller. No other PST show, it can be argued, has made more of a counter-argument to conventional narrative(s) about LA art history than has “L.A. Raw”; it takes a stance as tough in some ways as the work it contains. For more information, please visit the museum’s website at http://www.pmcaonline.org/
LOS ANGELES MUNICIPAL ART GALLERY Un-Natural THROUGH MAY 6 Along with two other LAMAG exhibitions – “Saving Paradise,” traditional landscape paintings drawing from the membership of the California Art Club, and “Hybrid Romance,” featuring Lawrence Yun’s vibrant watercolors of elaborate floral arrangements – “Un-Natural” takes the measure of spring fever at Barnsdall Art Park. Unlike the work in the other two shows, though, “Un-Natural” (as the name clearly implies) maintains something of a skewed view of nature. Hardly a sorority of fin-de-siècle aesthetes, the four painters are certainly not opposed to nature; indeed, pervading the show is an urgent and rather protective attitude toward natural phenomena and the overarching ecosystem. But in that very urgency these artists manifest a post-modernist anxiety that hovers around contemporary environmentalism: everything they depict seems fragile, transient, ephemeral, dreamlike, ready to disappear even while freighted with human memory and passion. Birds and trees recur in all four bodies of work, as if to represent nature at its most and least rooted. The presence of humanity insinuates everywhere, too, not quite obtrusive but always shaping our regard for nature as well as natural structures themselves. You feel this most in Lisa Adams’ compressed, rationalized landscapes, with their acid prettiness; but the far more expansive and complex formulations of Merion Estes, brimming with stylized references and visual montages, also seem to be coding and recording how humanity interacts with nature. Relying on more, er, naturalistic approaches, Fatemeh Burnes and Constance Mallinson still find a nature mindfully recomposed, taking on a symbolic and almost architectural intricacy (not to mention a lyric and tragic profundity) in Burnes’ painstakingly rendered, dynamically composed pictures-within-pictures and an ominous playfulness in Mallinson’s even more exacting trompe-l’oeil specificity, which she often applies to the “building” of (art-historically referenced) human figures out of plant forms.
