Interview: Joshua Van Dyke

April 23rd, 2012

Deer Mother, Joshua Van Dyke

The Block is no stranger to the slightly morbid. Couple that with an unhealthy addiction to Twin Peaks reruns, and it’s not hard to see why we went knocking on Joshua Van Dyke’s door. The Vancouver-based artist’s evocative sculptures are a marriage of teenage skateboard culture and the more ceremonious ritual of the hunt. His trophy-like pieces, antlers and masks carved from salvaged skateboard decks, come from a deep fascination with the act of collection and display.

April 4, 2012

When Amsterdam-based, luxury raw denim pioneers, G-Star RAW, opened the steel doors to their gorgeous new full-concept boutique space in Toronto’s Queen West neighbourhood on April 4th, the crowd of 500 invite-only guests was treated to a twilight-soaked evening of champagne-based cocktails and a coveted peek at the neighbourhood’s latest storefront revamp (one the fashion pack is happy to embrace). The spacious 3500-square-foot denim destination, the brand’s first in Toronto, borders on an exhibit, replete with scores of raw denim, top-notch merchandising, severe mannequins and a knowledgeable decked-out staff—not to mention a stunning skylight. The night was a unique showcase for G-Star’s Spring/Summer 2012 line—think handcrafted denim objects from the Raw Essentials line, outerwear from Jacket Specialist, like the summer parka, the denim Arc Jacket, a few leather pieces, and accessories like ‘30s-inspired Newsboy caps. Tough twills and Tencel shirts dominate Laundry Army, while the Baseball King Bomber from the Correct Line emphasizes relaxed, lightweight materials, and quality construction. In attendance: Down with Webster, Daniel Desano, Kresha Turner, and G-Star’s North American CEO, the very-enthused Stuart Millar.

Interview: Pierluigi Fracassi

December 15th, 2011

Italian artist Pierluigi Fracassi lives Darwin’s theory of natural selection in art and life. His immense talent is winning notice and his insight into man and nature allows him to get right down to the viscera – sometimes literally. At first glance a bit macabre, his haunting, striking pieces are actually an intricate homage to beauty and nature. His latest group show, It’s Time to Say Goodbye, opens this Friday at Galleria Changing Role in Naples. Fracassi spoke to us about the honour of exhibiting at this year’s Venice Biennale, the driving forces behind his art, and giving his grandmother “flowers.”

Kate Steciw

December 7th, 2011

Love My Way, 2011


Like everyone with a laptop or a smart phone, bits and pieces of artist Kate Steciw’s life are stored away on hard drives. But unlike the rest of us – who may spend hours clicking through Tumblr and Facebook photos without much thought – Steciw is acutely fascinated by the use of screens to access images and memories. “Looking at my old jpegs on my camera phone, I really began thinking about the way that the digital photo is ubiquitous in our lives,” says Steciw, reached at her Brooklyn studio. “These images on cameras and computers are at once so much a part of us, and yet they never really find their way into the actual world.”

Interview: Amalie Bruun

December 3rd, 2011

For someone from Denmark, rated as having the happiest population on earth, the music of singer-songwriter Amalie Bruun is filled with moody and melancholic sounds from low-fi guitars and tambourines reminiscent of alternative rock bands of the 80s and 90s. Born and raised outside Copenhagen, Amalie was brought up in a musical household which prompted her at the age of 20 to busk on the streets of Paris, London and Amsterdam before getting into songwriting for other musicians in Stockholm. One of these songs she recorded herself; ‘If You Give it Up’ ultimately became the theme song of Denmark’s version of the television series ‘Paradise Hotel.’

Peter de Potter

November 23rd, 2011

From i am an image machine, 2011

“I think that art needs to be seen, or better: to be distributed. I think the art world should make greater efforts to inject the world-at-large with its imagery. The series i am an image machine is to a big extent about the internet. It’s about the way the current generation approaches images. It’s not considered important anymore who made a certain image, when or how or why it was made, or even what it depicts. People go past things like authorship and reference, and simply respond to the emotional charge of an image.”–Peter de Potter

Hannah Yelland

November 21st, 2011

As the child of two actors who met on stage at Cambridge University, Hannah Yelland’s career path may have been a matter of fate. Raised near picturesque Hampton Court – the infamous home of King Henry VIII – Yelland quickly became an actress herself, making her theatre debut at the age of 11 in a local production of Oklahoma!. “The music of Rodgers and Hammerstein kind of really affected me. I still can’t watch movies or see other productions without crying out of nostalgia,” the actress laughs. After watching her father, David Yelland, take the Broadway stage in 1996 as Sir Robert Chiltern in Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, she thought, “Wouldn’t that be amazing to do one day!” and followed further in her parents’ footsteps. Fifteen years later, she made her own Broadway debut as the love-torn housewife Laura Jesson in a stage adaptation of Noel Coward’s 1945 film Brief Encounter, a role for which she received her first Tony nomination.
