RICHARD LANDRY DREAMS OF HOME
Richard Landry, AIA, created the award-winning Landry Design Group in 1987. With clients throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Canada and the Middle East, the firm continues to raise standards in high-end residential architecture. Internationally renowned for their designs in a variety of architectural styles and for their service-oriented philosophy, Landry Design Group produces residences ranging from classical estates to cozy rural villas and cutting-edge contemporary structures. The firm has received several national and international design awards, including twenty-five Gold Nugget Awards and the coveted Builderâ€™s Choice Award. Fabrik had the pleasure of engaging Richard Landry in conversation about Los Angeles, architecture and intuition. Âť
FABRIK: The dream homes you create for clients reflect a sense of timelessness, often by incorporating cherished memories of particular places from travels. Would you share something about the house you grew up in and how you’ve captured some semblance of it in your own home? RL: I come from a little town of about 5000 people in Québec. I grew up in a tiny little house of 1200 square feet with my three siblings and my mum and dad, sharing one bathroom. It was really a very humble house. My dad was a carpenter and they still live there to this day so it’s always fun to go back to spend time with them. My dad had actually designed the house although he’s not an architect. His dream had always been to become an architect but his father died when he was really young and he had to start working. What’s interesting is, as I became an architect, when I started to do high-end residential, when I came to Los Angeles actually, I had never really seen a big house before. All the houses in my home- town are tiny little houses. When I did my own house in Malibu, I was kind of drawing from that concept of going back deep inside to your childhood, saying what is it that moved me when I was young, what is it that appeals to me, and remembering all the barns, the countryside and the warmth of the wood, the character of that wood. So I went back to Québec and purchased an old barn and brought all the barn wood back. The barn was actually 2 miles from my parents’ house. And I brought all the barn wood here, to L.A. but I didn’t want to just recreate or copy the barn. I wanted to use it but in a more contemporary context, to adapt it to today’s lifestyle. Landry Design Group’s work has been featured in numerous publications around the world with several inclusions in Architectural Digest, Robb Report, California Homes and Trends magazine. Their work is frequently seen on television programming including HGTV, Travel Channel, E! Entertainment and A&E.

The firm’s current projects continue to be as diverse as their clients, and even with a portfolio of more than three hundred homes, every new project is viewed as an opportunity to further challenge the imagination, produce quality architecture, and display versatility. The thirty-person firm offers a full range of architectural services, including architectural interior and landscape design. FABRIK: Do you think architects have their own distinct language and approach to design and building? How would you describe your approach? RL: What’s interesting when you look at the work that we do, we do such a wide range of architectural styles, and the reason is what we really want is to hear from the clients, to get into their heads, to understand their lifestyle. I’m not going to live in their house. I just want to understand what turns them on in a way, and create something very special with that. I look at every single house we do, and I can honestly say, I see my clients in them. I see their personality. And that’s why those houses work so well. We have clients that call us, right after they move into their house, and they say, ‘Richard, I feel like I lived here for the last 40 years and I just moved in. I can’t believe how I feel.’ There’s a reason for that. We listen really really well. We ask a lot of questions. It’s about us then creating something where you know who the user is and you want to do something for them, and that’s where you have to, in a way, leave your egos aside, and say, ‘I’m going to do something for you, and make it your house. I’m going to bring all the creativity that I can to the project, and make it a lot of fun for you.’ Now, the other approach is, I look at architects like Richard Meier, or Frank Gehry, a lot of those guys that have a signature look, and I totally admire what they do, I think it’s fantastic that they’ve developed a language and a look that’s them. And when you see a Richard Meier house, you know it’s a Richard Meier house. It’s very difficult to copy that. It’s great that there are these people that inspire us and inspire a lot of architects by what they do and for many of them, I’m not saying that they don’t listen to their clients, but I think there’s a lot of young architects today that don’t spend enough time really listening to the client, hearing what they say. I think they’re too busy trying to sell their architecture, how they think the client should live. And again, if it works for them, fine. To me, for this world to go around, you need a lot of different types and personalities, and for them, they really believe, they’re committed to a very specific style of architecture and that’s what they want to focus on. They want

FA B R I K
people that come to them, that will actually commission them, to be the type of people that say, ‘I want your architecture,’ and that’s totally fine too. So, I’m not saying one is wrong. Architects have a tendency to mystify the process, to make it so mysterious and complicated. I’ve always tried to demystify it, to really educate my client so that they understand the process of architecture, the process of creating, and make them a part of that process. Because we specialize in residential, you know that people will live in them. The architecture that you create will influence their life on a daily basis. In 2006 Landry Design Group published their first monograph “MODERN TO CLASSIC: Residential Estates by Landry Design Group” featuring some of the firm’s most inspiring projects and illustrated with more than 350 color photographs. The firm’s commissions include work for such notable clients as Eddie Murphy, Rod Stewart, Kenny G, Wayne Gretzky, Sugar Ray Leonard, Sylvester Stallone, and Keyshawn Johnson. FABRIK: It has been said that a large part of your extraordinary success as an architect stems from your ability to really listen to your clients, many of whom are celebrities. How and/or when did you develop this capacity? RL: It’s a good question. Architecture comes easy to me. And sometimes I think, you know, I admire singers or musicians, and say, ‘my god, how can they sing so well, how do they hear music, and compose so well?’ I think you’re born with a certain talent and if you’re able, through your life, to really develop that, then you can do something that I believe can be very special. You try to be sensitive to your clients’ needs. I think maybe it’s a choice to say, ‘it’s very important for me to listen.’ Not just listen to the words but understand the meaning. Because a lot of time you have to read between the lines. Many of our clients, we would present or design

to them, and they say “How did you know that this is what we wanted? This is so much what we had in mind but we didn’t know how to tell you that.’ I guess that’s the part where you really have to have a sixth sense. There’s a gut feeling that you can perceive words that they are not saying. You can look at pictures that they show you and by listening carefully, you understand the meaning of what it is they’re trying to tell you. So I think it’s very intuitive. FABRIK: How does the ecology or geographical landscape of Los Angeles inform your work? RL: When we start with a piece of land, we’re always very careful to study everything that land has to offer. When you work in L.A., and the client buys a piece of land, we look at any views you want to capture, if there’s any noise we want to screen, we look at the patterns of the sun, the prevailing winds, we look at the geology and try to really be responsive to it. We have projects now where we’re very careful, where we’ve redesigned entire driveways and paths so that we can save some beautiful trees. It’s not always the easiest solution but it’s about being aware of what the land has to offer and to try to capitalize on that. We have several projects in Malibu where you have to deal with ESHA (Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas), and you have to stay away from those kinds of habitats. So you have to know what’s there and you have to be able to take advantage of it and also respect the things that we say we don’t want to disturb in those areas. FABRIK: Does working on homes with clients in Los Angeles differ in any way from doing so in other places or countries? If so, how do you perceive the difference? RL: I’ve been in business now for 21 years and what’s interesting is more and more, the clients coming to us really understand what we have to offer to them and to the project. They know who we are and they know what we do. They’ve seen our work. And I can honestly say we have amazing clients. People always ask me, ‘How do you select what projects or clients you want to work with?’ To me, the number one thing is to have fun. I always say to people, ‘I want to have fun, you’re going to be spending all this money, creating this estate, I want you to enjoy the process, because I believe the process is as important as the end result, and I just want us to enjoy the time we spend together working on this thing.’ That, to me, is what we’re about. We want to really change people’s lives by creating a great experience. I don’t think our clients are different in any country around the world. All our clients, whether we’re working in Dubai or Singapore or Malaysia, Russia, I find our clients are just nice people that understand the value we have to bring to the project. Of course there are cultural differences, which is wonderful, that I get to be exposed to so many different cultures. But within L.A., we have all these cultures. We work with clients of a really wide range of cultures and professional backgrounds, and we’re totally blessed with the kind of clients that we have. But I think part of it is because I’m very selective. They interview us but at the same time, we interview them. To do a great project, you have to have a great client. » FA B R I K
FABRIK: What are some local architectural landmark(s) you are inspired by? RL: I’m a fan of Frank Gehry. I love the Disney Hall. I think it’s a great sculpture and great piece of architecture. It’s interesting for a city like L.A. to have those types of really strong international architects coming in and creating architecture that will challenge people’s minds. You look at that building and a lot of people will be puzzled by it. As architects, we have a trained eye to appreciate a lot of what this is about but I think it’s always fun to push the envelope, and do things that are special like that. So many things inspire me. I love to drive around Hancock Park and look at all those old Spanish PHOTO: ERHARD PFEIFFER Colonial houses. They’re little gems. I love the early California type of architecture. Many times there are little pieces of architecture done by completely unknown architects, and there’s a detail in there that’s appealing to me. FABRIK: Many of your commissions are grand estates that require considerable resources to build, profoundly affecting the environment. In light of this, how do you view the current trend towards building structures to be more sustainable? Do you find clients having a deeper consciousness around this issue? RL: The consciousness is definitely there. We established, a few years ago, in our office, an inhouse committee we call the ‘Green Committee,’ that focuses on gathering all kinds of information on new systems and products, in terms of how we can apply them to the homes that we do. In the very high end of the market, it’s rare that you have a client that wants a French Chateau and wants to see solar panels on the side of it. So it’s how can you be green conscious if you want and at the same time incorporate that without affecting the architectural look of a house. We take advantage of flat roof portions where we can conceal solar panels. Green is not just solar panels, it’s also the materials that we use, the kind of insulation used in your walls, the zero VOC paints, the wood from sustainable forests. A lot of things out there are presented to the client, and it’s always up to the client to decide if it’s good for them. We’re doing a few homes in L.A. now where we’re using geothermal for the heating. That’s where you drill really deep in the earth. You go down 400 feet, with a series of holes, and you get the energy from the earth to heat or cool your house. Now that’s technology that we’re using in Russia, or in Canada, where in extreme climates, they’ve been using this for quite some time now, but it’s very new here. In L.A you don’t hear about that so much. You look at the valley and it does have extreme temperatures. It gets really hot in the summer and people have all those condensing units that are very loud and noisy in their side yard. Here with geothermal, it’s very quiet and a very eco-friendly system. Technology is changing so fast. And with any new trend, when everybody now is talking about sustainable design, there are a lot of new products in the market that are maybe not as good as 14
FA B R I K
others. So, there are consultants that we work with also that are total experts in this, that have their pulse on every new product and we’re able to do some studies, some calculations, as to does it makes sense in terms of the initial cost of the product versus how long it will take to recuperate the money that you invest over tax breaks that you get for using this or that product. It’s definitely more and more on people’s mind. FABRIK: Who are some artists you are influenced by? RL: I’ve always been inspired by the whole Barbizon period, where the French painters in the late 1800s started to go and do plénière painting. I look at the imagery they created and the mood that comes out of those paintings, and that is something that is of interest to me because in a way, there was a transition in the movement when they got out of their studios and finally went outdoors where they painted with the natural light. They would go back day after day, sit in the same spot and just capture moods. In those years, Pizarro, Degas…I love Manet, Impressionist painters have always been appealing for me. I love a lot of French painters like Lautrec, Monet. I’ve always admired Picasso’s pieces. FABRIK: Does fashion influence your design sensibility? RL: We have to always draw the difference between fashion as a trend because when people ask me about trends in architecture, I tell them I really am not a follower of trends. As fashion changes with the season, when you build a house, you want it to be there for many many years. And that goes back to your first question about timeless architecture. I try to do architecture that is not trendy. I think you try to go deeper. Fashion can influence in colors. You can have colors in a house, that’s easy; you can repaint your walls or change your fabrics. Fashion, for me, is something you wear and architecture is something that you live in and they’re very distinct, with very distinctive purposes. In one word, the ideal home in Los Angeles is one that makes you? Happy.

LASTORY WORDS T.M. HUNTER PHOTOGRAPHY TED VANCLEAVE
Los Angeles Love Letter Los Angeles, Los Angeles… Your gift to us is the fact that you don’t really exist. You’re not a brick and mortar place. You therefore make all of us – no matter how solid our homes – mere travelers with a temporary base. Watch the tourists desperately trying to make sense of you, ending up with everything you are not. Your Hollywood Sign (residue of a failed real estate enterprise), the hands and footprints of forgotten stars gathering dust in front of old shoe and liqueur stores… One could feel sorry for those tourists that are offered nothing more than cardboard cutouts. But then isn’t this what makes you unique, the fact that you never are what you are perceived to be? While your fixed identity is still settling in one area, new life is already gestating under your still fresh asphalt layers in another part of town, and soon there too the surface will crack under the weight of cranes – themselves symbols of incompletion, and cement trucks and construction crews sweeping the dust up in the air and on our cars’ hoods while waiting at traffic lights in the hot summer sun. Where a scene on the East Coast would fix the town for years to come, here you have to shout very loudly and still then, you will only reach a fraction of the world that has made its home here. Go ahead, create your cool, hip, newest politically correct scene; one block over no ones knows or cares. This is what creates your visceral democracy; you cannot be grasped; your name itself is a contradiction in terms. You are not one place; you are a collection of millions of impressions and states of mind. You are then, a state of being. For the naïve visitor and would be conqueror, still arriving in droves by bus and air, you seem such an easy open target. Only after a while when the beginner’s luck runs out, you reveal that real success can only be built over time, with a clear intention set, inside the heart. You are a superb projection screen for everyone’s dream; be it the promising high school student who won high praise for her acting in the annual school play in a suburb of Oklahoma City, or the entrepreneurial Mexican crawling over and under fences, to get here, stubbornly refusing to let go of the possibility of the existence of an American Dream. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

L.A.’S SKYLINE FROM BEHIND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN
I remember, when I arrived here, fresh off the plane from Europe, I kept searching for your center. You dazzled me, it felt like my jetlag never left, until you one day revealed yourself to me: You don’t care about centers; you grow neighborhoods and shopping malls, and fashion centers and theater rows, like weeds that tumble in the wind and build their home wherever they fall. Today Melrose Heights, and Robertson Boulevard, tomorrow new shopping centers for downtown and Dodgers Stadium, and luxury condos in Glendale, until, I’m confident, one day Boyle Heights or Crenshaw will be the center of Hip. Oh, excuse me? Construction has already started? Well, I am sorry but you just made my point. Los Angeles, you are a micro cosmos of the entire planet; forget the melting pot; there is none; but what exists are hundreds of thousands of little pots and pans on the fire; their cooks borrow from each other; some spices here, some vegetables there; but it is all used to only further strengthen one’s own individuality. They could put a gate around you and declare you “Museum of the World” and all the rest of earth could disappear and we’d have a pretty good idea of what civilization on this planet was like. Forever renewing, following your own heartbeat; today’s downfall of a certain neighborhood will inevitably be the foundation for rebirth in another area… let all the business go to the Westside and settle in Santa Monica, let weeds grow through the pavement in dusty downtown; the further the energy moves away from it, the closer it is again to its own new renaissance. This unending flow of process and development creates your heartbeat. For you are not a fixed place; one of the best locations to realize this is the boardwalk at Venice Beach. Step beyond the street hawkers; the psychics, tarot card readers, and musicians; walk past the echoes of the drumbeat circle to the shoreline and if you listen really carefully, the waves will bring you the exotic sounds and mysterious scents of that other continent where Confucius taught that the most extreme moment of fixation heralds the coming of the new; and that therefore inevitably the state of seemingly utmost chaos and confusion emphasizes the foundation of a firm new structure. Los Angeles, je t’embrace, for the way you force me permanently to let go of the old and embrace the adventure of new and unknown possibilities.

Mountain (mis)Adventure The twisting drive up the Angeles Crest Highway towards Mt. Wilson alternates between cityscape and the side of the moon, especially at night. This razor thin line between civilization and wilderness is a large part of Mt. Wilson’s charm; the mountain is home to a conglomeration of radio and television towers, but also the Mt. Wilson Observatory, where Edwin Hubble discovered that our universe is expanding while observing the night skies above Los Angeles. The intersection of modern convenience and unfettered wilderness makes Mt. Wilson a perfect introduction to Los Angeles’ myriad outdoor attractions. It’s one of the most accessible mountains by car and has more trails than any mountain in the San Gabriels. A hike to Mt. Wilson’s peak has all the verdure an afternoon hiker dreams of and from its breathtaking vista points the immense sprawl of Los Angeles takes on a numinous air that we seldom acknowledge while sitting in traffic or navigating a strip mall.
FA B R I K
I climbed Mt. Wilson in the evening chill following a warm January day. We set off on the trail around 8 p.m., marveling at how the plant life was illuminated by stars and the twinkling lights of the city below. It seemed romantic and idyllic until I was scooting on all fours over an ice patch on the dark side of the mountain with the wind whipping around me thinking, “the irony of this is how close I am to downtown LA.” I made my way back to the previous lookout point while my more adventurous friends scaled the top of the icy peak. The glow of L.A.’s many TVs and freeways had never been so comforting. Moral of the story: Don’t miss Mt. Wilson. And skip the icy parts if you don’t have hiking boots. By Car

THE LONDON WEST HOLLYWOOD If Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana were having a girls’ night out in WEHO, the London West Hollywood would be their choice to stay. The London West Hollywood, formerly the Bel Age, has had an extreme makeover combining the golden age of Hollywood and the sophistication of Britain. Designer David Collins has customized every detail of the hotel to offer a luxurious, functional, sensory environment. Hollywood glamour is captured by gold lamé couches, bronze lighting, and a hand embroidered tapestry of Los Angeles based on a golden era map of the stars. The British touches are evident in the stately entrance filled with topiaries, box hedges, ivy and a British bulldog ambassador. Elegant yet understated, the 750 square feet open floor plan suites include crocodile embossed leather chairs, velvet upholstered sofas, bleached oak walls and hand cut mosaic tiled bathroom floors. It’s a place to feel at home yet like royalty or a movie star, your choice. The London West Hollywood’s panoramic view rooftop pool featuring a ‘hidden garden’ will open in June 2008.

A Fair Man: Stephen Cohen talks about the LA art scene Fabrik: How did you begin your career as an art dealer and how did you choose to focus on photography?
STEPHEN COHEN CASTS HIS NET WIDE.
His galleries, the Stephen Cohen gallery in LA and Cohen Amador in New York, represent a staggering number of international photographers working in a wide variety of genres. As if running two internationally renowned photo galleries weren’t enough, he is the founder and driving force behind photo l.a., photo MIAMI and artLA. His fairs have not only been instrumental in drawing attention to the LA art scene, but have broadened the appreciation of photography by serious collectors. Cohen was named one of the “Top 100 most influential people” by American Photography Magazine and included Art + Auctions 2004 “Power List.” He spoke to Fabrik about the evolution of the bourgeoning LA art scene and art fairs while traveling in Europe. 24
FA B R I K
SC: I majored in Art (photography and sculpture) and Theater as an undergrad and went to USC film school for my graduate degree. Art dealing began by accident. I needed to work after graduating from film school, so I augmented whatever film jobs I could get with selling photography books, which I had been collecting since college. Eventually I started selling 19th century prints to dealers in LA. Soon I was doing road trips cross-country selling pieces I had on consignment that dealers in LA and NY considered unsellable. I got a reputation for moving inventory for dealers because I was able to sell them. After a while I decided I needed to find more clients in LA, so I started photo l.a. which is now in its’ 18th year. My work on the fair allowed me to open a small gallery. Fabrik: Your gallery has an outstanding artist roster. I’m impressed not only by the quality, but also the range of work you have chosen to represent. It seems that many galleries run the risk of overspecializing. What are the merits of representing such a wide range of artists and what are the potential challenges?
SC: My gallery directors and I feel strongly about our artists. I love vintage work but it’s getting harder to find and it’s very expensive. Contemporary photo-based work has become increasingly desirable for collectors. It is good to have a variety of work to offer them.
Fabrik: Tell me about the evolution of the LA art scene and how being a dealer in LA has changed. Do you feel that LA is becoming an international center for the arts? If so, how do you perceive that transition?
Fabrik: LA is quickly becoming an arts destination. At the same time, California galleries and artists often have a regional identity. Do you consider yourself a “California Dealer?”
SC: LA has a long history of artists coming out here for the weather, cheap rents and the light. The city was a cowboy town and was much more innocent in the past. It allowed artists freedom for experimentation since it wasn’t a center of the art world. Now people recognize that LA was a major force in presenting the work of young artists in the 60s and 70s that are now established in the art world. Ed Ruche immediately comes to mind. The Nick Wilder Gallery was in the forefront of this movement.
SC: I am a dealer in California. We work with artists and clients from around the country and the world.
Now Los Angeles is back in the art world and stronger. Many established artists call the Southland their home and an increasing
We are going through a period of letting some artists go as we add new ones. It is always a challenge to present new work to the public, but it’s satisfying when the response and sales are strong.
FA B R I K
number of artists are moving here. It’s hard to pinpoint an LA style because it is a city of immigrants from other States. Younger galleries have come on the scene over the past ten years and have made a significant impact internationally. Many curators and gallerists come here to grab the young artists at Cal Arts, UCLA, USC and Arts Center before they even have a gallery representing them. LA is hot in that sense. Fabrik: How did photo l.a. begin? SC: photo l.a. began in January 1992. I was traveling around the country and had more clients outside of the city than in LA. I initially planned to do the fair for a couple of years, get a good client base and move on. I opened my first small gallery with money from the fair. As photo l.a.’s fame and reputation spread across the country, we had more dealers wanting to be involved. Eventually our first venue, Butterfields Auction House on Sunset Blvd., was bursting at the seams. After eight years we moved to the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium where we were able to expand the size and scope of the fair. This year we moved to the Barker Hangar, which was a huge step up for the size and quality of the fair. A local dealer suggested that I start a contemporary art fair, so I started ArtLA in 2004. Over the past four years, the fair has 26
FA B R I K
grown in stature and attendance. This year had an amazing group of impressive dealers. Our committee was headed by Doug Hug, who was just appointed the Director of Art Cologne. Fabrik: How do you think the art fair scene in LA differs from its New York and European counterparts? SC: Fairs in New York and Europe have a longer history, not to mention the cache of art collecting in Europe. The fairs are much larger and attract a huge audience. US fairs like the Armory and Art Basel Miami Beach have become bigger players in the world and are anxiously awaited each year. While LA’s art scene is much more active than in the past, it doesn’t have the history of New York City or Basel. Fabrik: Have collectors’ attitudes changed towards photography in your time as a dealer? SC: Yes. There are more of them collecting photo-based work. On the whole they are becoming much better acquainted with photography through the photo and art fairs. Fabrik: What do you have planned for your upcoming season? SC: We are working hard on photo MIAMI which has become a benchmark for contemporary photography and one of the
must see fairs during Art Basel Miami Beach after only two years. We always have something of interest: new galleries, artists and special projects. Fabrik: What are some LA-based artists and emerging spaces to watch? SC: Many of the young galleries in Culver City and Chinatown are exciting: Jail, in Chinatown; Roberts & Tilton and Blum & Poe, in Culver City and Acme in Los Angeles. Fabrik: Do you have any advice for artists that are just starting out? SC: Keep your day job. There are sacrifices if you are serious about your work and life as an artist. Nothing is owed to you and there are a lot of â€œoutrages and injustices â€œover what art becomes popular. I think an artist always needs to look at other art and be a good editor of their own work. The Stephen Cohen Gallery is located at 7358 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles, (323) 9375525. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am-6pm.

DESIGNCRITIC WORDS OLIVER O.
The Design Divo Does Katsuya Hollywood As my eyes adjust from the blinding flash of paparazzi crouched outside, I am greeted by a darling hostess dressed in a drab, prison like uniform at the newest Katsuya Restaurant in Hollywood. Immediately, the floating white sushi knife cocktail stands in the Dragon Lounge visually arrest my attention. Between the prison uniforms and knives, I think to myself, “Did I mistake this for the S&M bar down the street?” My fears are calmed as we are ushered to our table amidst ornate Venetian mirrors, white leather couches, candlelight and a giant red kiss-me-already geisha lip photograph. Our server suggests the Burning Mandarin cocktail winning them “Best Cocktail in LA” award by LA Magazine, made of fresh citrus, vodka and Serrano chilies to give you that geisha pucker. She gained my respect, so we fall into her arms to lead us into the legendary Master Chef Katsuya Uechi taste bud wonderland. Each of the ten courses are served on different shaped platters of wood, ceramic and stone beautifully accented with bright edible flowers, almost too lovely to eat. Taking a breather to digest, I wander around the other 'bento box' divided rooms. While I was lucky to eat in the deliciously 28

glowing room to the left of the bar, other diners were not so fortunate. Veer to the right of the bar and step into the generic, dungeon sushi bar and main dining room. Did celebrity designer Philippe Starck have a creative block? Was he on strike the day he designed that room? My god, what a disappointing contrast! Despite the Godzilla-size geisha body part photos (cheaply printed btw), nothing sets this apart from a sushi bar in little Japan town. I rush to the bathroom to hide my obvious dismay. Just as I am regaining my composure, ghost-like figures appear in the mirror, scaring the design critic right out of me! Call it karma or Starck mischievously getting the final say on his design.

THROUGHTHELENS WORDS APARNA BAKHLE PHOTOGRAPHY JIM McHUGH
Jim McHugh’s Vanishing Landscapes of Los Angeles JIM McHUGH IS FAMOUS FOR THE ARTIST PORTRAITS, celebrity lifestyles and fine art he photographs. His images of Samuel L. Jackson, Clint Eastwood and Sir Anthony Hopkins, his unique environmental portraits for Architectural Digest covers, his comprehensive photographic survey of the Los Angeles art world, have garnered him numerous accolades and prizes. As one of the original Contributing Photographers to People Magazine when it began in the mid-70s, McHugh’s sensibility and sensitivity have served him well. Working with the Grammy Awards, he created a unique series of celebrity images and traveling exhibition for “The Grammy Image Project”, chronicling the history of contemporary music. His work is included in several prominent collections such as MOMA, the Walker Art Center and The Polaroid Collection.
McHugh has published several books on
Contemporary Art and Artists, including “California Painters: New Work” and “The Art of Light and Space.” His versatility in both fine art and journalistic photography has also led him to capture ordinary things in extraordinary ways. For the past few years, Jim has focused his lens on documenting the urban 'built environment' as a “vanishing landscape.” Using classic Polaroid media to invoke a mythic Los Angeles, McHugh’s evocative and sizable prints hint at the glamour hidden within familiar landmarks. Moodily reflective in a film noir sort of way, his new series of works beautifully complicates how we see our city’s hotels, apartments and civic buildings. Combining analog and digital techniques to create large-format photographs of extraordinary quality, these ethereal landscapes transport us to Hollywood’s decadent early days. McHugh reveals romantic dreamscapes composed of shadows cast by stone and concrete facades under calm and menacing “L.A. Skies”.

Santa Monica Auctions conducts its sales twice a year, and every year they seem to feature juicier stuff: museum-quality work, early work by today's top artists, rare editions by modern masters, prime examples by cult figures, and superb images by once-vaunted artists who have fallen into obscurity - all at prices that come closer to the thrift store than to Christie's. This particular auction is graced with a bevy of beauties by LA's own phalanx of recently emerged art stars - Jim Shaw, Kim Dingle, Sandow Birk, Manuel Ocampo - from the estate

Allan Kaprow invented the Happening. Lawrence Weiner helped invent Conceptual Art. Both were New York guys working in the border - a thin line or a huge no-man's-land - between art and life at a time when art was art and everything else was everything else. Kaprow came out of abstract expressionism when he started working with found materials, then started filling rooms with those materials, then started activating those rooms with the actions of performers - and the reactions of observers. Weiner, a generation younger, came out of minimal art when he started substituting words for shapes and verbal descriptions for objects. So Kaprow went wide and Weiner got small, but both made art
of the late Stuart Katz, a revered supporter of young local talent. But our Old Guard - Ed Ruscha, Robert Graham, Billy Al Bengston, Ed Moses - is also out in force, as are the New York Pop folks - Warhol, Rauschenberg, Johns, Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana - and their internationally successful successors - Basquiat, Murakami, Richard Prince, Barry McGee. If you want to play it real safe, there are Chagalls and Picassos and Miros and Giacomettis for the picking - and if you want to get funky, there are several Helmut Newton photos and a triptych by David Lynch. Auction Sunday, June 1, from 1 p.m., at the Robert Berman Gallery, Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Avenue, Santa Monica. (310) 315-1937.

ART GALLERIES & MUSEUMS something else, something very different from what it had been by getting to the root of what it was wanting to be. The Kaprow retrospective is full of historical documentation - including films, videos, photographs, scripts, handwritten instructions, and souvenirs - as well as reconstructions of installations which you can now interact with. The Weiner retrospective is words, phrases, and concepts, plastered all over the walls in graceful, sometimes dramatic formations, like poetry springing off the page, and all over objects, posters, and books, like poetry staying on the page. The visual impact of these two retrospectives, one as messy as life and the other as tidy as rational thought, couldn't be more different, but the mind-expanding impact is equal - on opposite sides of the brain.
body - underscore rather than obscure their almost addictive usefulness. Like his countrymen, Milan-basaed Mari loves to play with and re-think ordinary objects; unlike so many of them, he is taken less with his own cleverness than with the magic of objecthood itself. A selection of about 60 Mari designs fills the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.

ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE OF LOS ANGELES Enzo Mari THRU JUNE 27, 2008
Enzo Mari is one of the people we have to thank for Italian design's world prominence since World War II. His designs have always combined playfulness, practicality, and the unparalleled elegance of simplicity, all driven by an eagerness to work with new and old materials alike. Even as you admire their sculptural line and their machine-like logic you have to lift and fondle them like toys. Some of them are toys; Mari’s designs for kids’ books and objects themselves constitute a minor revolution in design for children. Similarly, the Pop brightness and futuristic stylizations of his designs for adults - for the workplace, for the home, for the kitchen, for the

THE KOPLIN DEL RIO GALLERY + PALM SPRINGS DESERT MUSEUM CULVER CITY THRU JULY 12 PALM SPRINGS THRU SEPTEMBER 14
What is it about D.J. Hall’s hyper-realist paintings that scares us so? In their very innocuousness they reveal the superficiality of our social beings and the mortality of our physical beings. For almost four decades Hall has been depicting well-off southern California women arrayed around pools, gardens, and lawns, enjoying themselves almost to distraction. Their glistening smiles and eyes hidden behind designer sunglasses constitute a LaLaLand cliché as hoary as the Hollywood sign. Sometimes the girls in the Halls are young and stupid; more often, however, they clearly were once and would like again to be. Putting it as unkindly as possible, Hall's paintings are where trophy wives go to die. But in its slyly relentless recording of time and climate, Hall’s art strikes a note of poignancy; by fixing these ladies in her sights and prompting them to say “cheese,” Hall indicts them and pities them - and by extension herself and us. A retrospective of Hall’s art, amplified by drawings, photographs, and other studies and worknotes, is on view, fittingly enough, at the Palm Springs Desert Museum, until Sept. 14; and new work hangs at the Koplin Del Rio Gallery, thru July 12.
