Babble Report | New Prints by Nicoletta Ceccoli

Posted by on Nov 24, 2012 in Babble Report, Featured | 0 comments

Nicoletta Ceccoli‘s porcelain creatures, in their odd, sticky-sweet surroundings seem a bit like illustrations for children’s books. The artist’s palette of childhood pastels and ghostly whites, softly rendered into gentle forms, are nurturing and inviting. This lure gives way quickly, revealing the uncanny, visceral qualities of her creatures’ gestures and facial expressions, belying their innocence and emotively exploring the confusion of adulthood. They are, in their surreality, uncomfortably real.

Babble Report | The Photography of Prog Rock Icon

Posted by on Sep 15, 2012 in Announcements, Babble Report, Featured | 0 comments

I recently interviewed bassist Tony Levin about this new digital photography project amongst other things for the O Positive Festival Blog. Tony's shots are candid and evince the surrealistic madness that comes upon a musician who has been on tour for months, trapped in the “…lobby life of hurry-up-and-wait…for the odd shaped keys that lead to new soap and envelopes.”

Babble Report | Jeremy Hush’s “At A Loss For Words” Sneak Peek

Posted by on Sep 11, 2012 in Art Shows, Babble Report, Featured | 0 comments

My recent visit to Philadelphia brought me to the studio of Jeremy Hush who is in the midst of preparing for a new solo exhibition, At a Loss for Words. Jeremy told me that this particular series of works revolves around dispassion; a lying down and giving up. Human figures are depicted white-eyed and comatose, half-buried in forest ground-cover decomposing into the earth. More sentient animals are seen investigating and, in some cases, nesting inside these abandoned idle human husks.
