Letter from the Editor

l’étoile magazine has been keeping secrets from you. Over the past year, we have quietly planned the launch of the new l’étoile as a full-size, biannual fashion and art book. We kept as mum as we could, but spring is here and it’s finally time to share our secrets. We’re going to tell you everything. l’étoile debuted in the spring of 2005 as a half-size fashion magazine lovingly assembled by a handful of friends. A second issue was released in the fall of that same year, followed by a third issue in spring of 2006. Then it disappeared. Although the staff kept the Twin Cities plugged into the local arts community at letoilemagazine.com, and continued to host and sponsor events, everyone wanted to know: where is the magazine? Before we could release the issue, we had to find our voice. Over glasses of wine at Clubhouse Jäger and pints of beer at the CC Club, we were constantly hashing out what makes l’étoile different. We wanted to create a magazine that truly celebrates and encourages imagination. It takes incredible bravery to create something and put it on display for the world to judge. l’étoile magazine is dedicated to the people that take that risk. This issue is a romantic journey into the minds and hearts of artists. In these pages, Twin Cities designer Laura Fulk models her own dresses. The contrasting colors and flowing lines of her pieces would have looked exquisite on a model, but it’s especially engaging to see an artist wrap herself in her own work (particularly an artist as easygoing and photogenic as Fulk). In Let’s Pretend, married couple Ben Olson and Emma Berg provide us with a glimpse into the fantastical world of an artist and his muse. Olson has been known to wake his sleeping wife in the middle of the night to pose for him. Berg, a tiny sprite with sharp and expressive features, sparkles as the object of his obsession. Photographed in their home, the couple tells an intimate story of love, commitment, and inspiration. I’m particularly excited to introduce our Submissions section. Artists from all over the world were intrigued by the concept of l’étoile and submitted their work to the magazine. The creative flood transformed us into matchmakers, pairing artwork from local and international artists. The result is a unique exhibition of beauty readers can behold just by turning the page. After a long silence, l’étoile is no longer in the business of keeping secrets. Beth Hammarlund Editor in Chief

What is sound collage? You can compare sound collage artists to photo collagists who cut imagery from photographs to assemble new work. Sound collage artists use playback equipment to both cut into previously existing sound recordings, and then assemble their brand new works of collage. How is SAR different from other radio shows? It’s a weekly audio art show, focused on artists who create with splashes of sound, that are appropriated, manipulated, and juxtaposed to form new works of sonic art. Recommend

Move over self-mutilators, there’s a new cutter in town. Only

Lucas McFadden (aka Cut Chemist)

cuts rec ords, not skin. Three years ago, the thirty-something Los Angeles native made a tough decision: he left his role as DJ to the acclaimed hip-hop group Jurassic 5 and started a solo career. The transition required patience and a new sense of dedication. He hunted for records in Brazil and logged hours listening to alt-rock radio.

Congratulations, it’s a Solo Career! Cut Chemist Gives Birth to a Global-Rocknroll-Oldschool-EthiopianRockabilly-Electro-Hiphop-Jazz-Explosion and Spreads the Love. By Molly Hill and Jane Moccia Illustration by Adam R Garcia

The long hours paid off with his most recent release, last year’s ‘The Audience’s Listening’. In addition to establishing McFadden as a solo artist in the underground hip-hop scene, Apple picked up a track to use in their iPod nano advertisements and he has since toured with Shakira. McFadden’s appeal to indie music lovers, Top 40 listeners, and a major corporation is the direct result of a sound that incorporates music from all over the globe. “[The Audience’s Listening is] a hybrid of sounds: rockabilly, old school hip-hop, Ethiopian jazz, electro, Latin funk, they all made their way into the album. And they’re all meshed up together so it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact elements as they’re happening.” McFadden chocks up the lengthy chunk of time it took to record his solo album to first album jitters. “At times, I felt like a struggling, single, pregnant mother, but then, I had my baby and a huge weight was lifted as I let it spread its wings and fly freely into the world.” Although switching labels to move to Warner Elektra was a major change in representation, McFadden seems unaffected. He looks at the record deal as a way to bring his music to a wider audience. McFadden says, “Hip-hop should be fun. It can have mainstream hits and still have underground acceptance.” Mainstream singles and underground credibility? Cut Chemist may just get to have his cake and eat it, too.

in high school, to a recent photo shoot that I styled to channel ‘60s-era Velvet Underground, musicians have always been my fashion muses. The Who personified the mod revolution of the ‘60s, while Jim Morrison brought his bad-boy hippie style to the realm of psychedelic rock. Mick Jagger’s colorful, androgynous style of the ‘70s characterized a decade. Duran Duran exemplified dark and sexy in the ‘80s, while ‘90s gothic troubadour Nick Cave was elegantly disheveled. What better subjects for our reimaginations than some of the Twin Cities rock icons of today?

Artist Profile

Water makes up the better part of the human body. We may not consider how this defines us as individuals, but we are bound to this physical reminder of our relationship to the environment. As we plumb the depths of our consciousness, consider the hydro-oxygen in our composition. The following pieces were designed to measure this very element of our existence. By measuring the amount of water in a particular human being in varying containers, the display demonstrates the personality of the individual. Why not find the measure of the one you love?

A Glimpse at Life Outside the Cubicle

Matt and Amy Terry Owners of Maude Salon

By Beth Hammarlund

Upon entering Maude Salon, it is impossible not to be charmed. If the happy colors and vintage furniture don’t get you, the delightful owners and their Yorkshire Terrier, Beatrice, will. Matt and Amy Terry opened Maude Salon almost two years ago. The business allows the couple to spend their workdays together (she is a stylist; he is a freelance web designer), while also affording them the luxury of bringing their dog to work. Tucked away next to Altered Aesthetics Gallery in the Qarma Building, Maude Salon fits right into the Northeast Minneapolis artistic community. The aqua walls and carefully selected kitsch (such as a set of green, plastic hedges) create an inviting atmosphere that is capable of putting even the most scissorphobic at ease. Harold and Maude posters and rows of brightly colored hair extensions say, “Life’s short. Dye your hair pink.” Even Beatrice adds to the pleasant environment (clients confirm that Beatrice will be in the salon when scheduling their appointments). Whether you’re trying out rainbow hair extensions or just taking a little off the top, you’ll leave Maude with a cheery disposition. maudeonquincy.com

Karin Jacobson Jewelry Designer

Karin Jacobson is a lesson in juxtaposition. Her designs are fun and feminine, but her materials, mostly labgrown gems and precious metals, are substantial, lending a healthy weight to each of her pieces. This contrast extends to her studio, which is divided into a space to showcase her jewelry and a workspace to create it. She keeps her display area clean and minimal,

STAY

Ben Olson and Emma Berg live in a shadowbox. Furnishings are scarce, but the rooms overflow with art. Tall canvases lean against doorways, casting long shadows across the hardwood floors. Paintings and photographs from dear friends overlap on walls, competing for attention. As the sole subjects of Olson’s paintings, the couple knows how it feels to be on display. At exhibitions, they are surrounded by their own faces, which gaze out through sentimental seas of color and Olson’s signature red acrylic. Olson considers the painted subjects to be characters of his creation, but it’s not surprising that a stranger may assume he is seeing the couple’s most private moments. Olson and Berg embody the dynamic relationship between an artist and his muse. This devotion inspired Creative Director and romantic voyeur, Molly Roark, to create a story that explores a journey through abstract thought, provocation, and divine partnership. For exhibition information, visit mplsart.com or benolson.net.

Photography by Steve Ozone, Macy’s Photo Studio Art Direction by Molly Roark Clothing by Laura Fulk Hair/Makeup by Andrea Holten Shoes by Celine

Laura Fulk A background in fine arts has fueled Laura Fulk’s longtime love of clothing as sculpture. With every piece, she strives to breathe life into a movable, wearable article of clothing. By tying in themes of female identity and empowerment, she loads each ensemble with narrative and possibility. Fulk’s designs encourage the wearer to step outside herself, contemplate, reflect, and discover. On the following pages, Fulk models her collection from Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2007. Makeup-smeared fabric and abstract construction follow the revolution of the ‘50s idealized woman. Drab, outdated colors and textures are challenged by futuristic shapes and blinding white. Fulk’s designs will continue to provoke on April 28, when her fashion event, Charmageddon, materializes at Susan Hensel Gallery. Select pieces available at Cliché in Minneapolis. For more information, visit laurafulk.com.

Jack Kerouac hated the rules. Despite his athleticism, he was kicked off the Columbia football team for fighting with his coach, and discharged from the U.S. Navy for his “indifferent disposition.” In his writing, he avoided the period for the ellipse and the dash. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t conform to his own style. In 1959, when he made his appearance on The Tonight Show with host Steve Allen, Kerouac wore a smart one-button wool suit while he read On the Road with Allen accompanying him on piano. His only nod to the “Beat Generation” was the rumpled collar of his polo shirt poking out underneath his jacket. And when it came to avoiding that terse, inhibited punctuation mark, it wasn’t because Jack actually hated the period—he just didn’t have time for it. He controlled his thoughts on the page in the same way a jazz musician or a Buddhist monk controls his breathing. There was a form to what Kerouac called the “holy contour of life,” he just allowed his life to find its own.
