Elizabeth McGrath | "The Folly of St. Hubertus"

With "The Folly of St Hubertus," Elizabeth McGrath fuses German folklore, contemporary materials and her trademark flair for the dramatic into one spectacular sculpture that touches on all of the recurring themes in her work - protecting and caring for the vulnerable, taking responsibility for how our actions impact the environment and co-existing conscientiously with the creatures of the earth.

Born in the seventh century, Hubertus was an avid hunter and woodsman who, while in the forest one Christmas Eve encountered the wondrous image of a splendid albino stag carrying a shining cross between its antlers. Through this vision, Hubertus was moved to transform his life. He laid down his high ranks of office, distributed his wealth among the poor and the church and dedicated his life to honoring the creatures of the forest and protecting animals from needless suffering.

Today, Hubertus is the patron saint of hunters and animal protectionists in northern Europe and his devotees honor him by sharing their feasts with townspeople, holding charity fundraising festivals and being responsible for the care of animals on their lands, both domestic and wild.

With "The Folly of St Hubertus," McGrath re-imagines the hunter's transformative vision in gold leaf and over 60,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals. The fantasy eight-legged creature, glittering with bands of reflective light and pierced by golden arrows, is simultaneously confrontational and ethereal. He at once entices with glorious beauty and shocks with profound sadness, giving one no choice but consider one's own relationship with nature, the environment, those less fortunate and those who can not speak for themselves.

Self-taught, Elizabeth McGrath has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums in the US and Europe including the American Visionary Art Museum and the Bristol City Museum and Gallery. She lives in Downtown Los Angeles with her husband, the artist Morgan Slade and their hairless dogs Blue and King Tut. McGrath is currently working on her second solo exhibition for Sloan Fine Art, scheduled to open in 2012.

Driven By Boredom X Kimberly Kane | NSFW


I'm not sure how this passed by my radar. I am an avid onlooker of Igor of Driven By Boredom's work and Kimberly Kane was my first pornographic inspiration.  So the idea of a collab between the two definately got my attention.  Not sure who Kimberly Kane is? Well its time to grab your crotch and embrace your dark side. 

Kimberly took home the Best Actress award at the 2010 AVN Awards, 2010 XBiz Awards and the 2010 XRCO Awards. Not only is she a porn actress who crosses the lines between alt porn and mainstream porn but she is a very talented porn film director herself. Live in my Secrets boasts one of the sexiest girl on girl scenes with Sasha Grey and Kimberly which makes the film worthwhile alone. Not to mention the feisty and hot black & white opening scene featuring herself. Kane's films are edgy, strong and teeter on the dark side of sexuality in all of us.

Who's that Girl? - Bridget Blonde


From the moment I set eyes on 27 year old Houston, Texas native Bridget Blonde I was smitten. Her perfect body, those eyes and that perfect light blonde hair reminiscent of original beauty icon's Marilyn Monroe. Sexy, sultry, sweet and a sense of style that makes girls gasp around the world.


Part German, part Swedish,  Bridget was the only girl in a family of 3 boys growing up in Texas. One's gotta wonder if her brothers were blessed with the good looks that the gene pool bestowed upon their sister. Bridget resides in Los Angeles, California these days and modelling is her life. Day job and hobby. And there's no question shes good at it!

 

Who is Bridget Blonde? 

"model/pit bull lover/cake eater"


 Bridget spends her time jogging, taking spin class, painting and indulging in fashion. She is also a fellow dog lover and a passionate advocate for rescuing pit bulls.  

Her aspirations for the future are by no means menial. Taking over the world being high on her list. There is a great light-hearted nature and playfulness about Bridget that is almost infectious whether it be on film or in conversation. 




 And men? Well, really who has the time!



When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it?

"About 3 years ago... I love seeing ideas come to life in a photo"




Whilst Bridget doesn't see herself modelling for for much longer there are still many photo shoots to come so don't despair.
"I'm ready to challenge myself with something else"
 

 What do you admire in other women?

"confidence and curves"




Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or whats comfortable?

"i love fashion...but i could care less if its name brand"


 Who would you say is your style icon? 
"no such person exists...i change my style daily"



 What's your take on life and what advice would give any of your fans? 
"If you think you can do something...GO FOR IT...and give it 110% everyday."

Hole Will Reunite At MoMA.


 Courtney Love may have been touring around with her band Hole recently, but her band was severely different from the original lineup. On Monday the original four will band together again, however, for a screening of Hit So Hard at MoMA—a documentary about former Hole drummer Patty Schemel.





Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Patty Schemel, and Melissa Auf der Maur are all scheduled to be present, along with filmmaker David Ebersole, for a Q&A. This is allegedly "the first time these four musicians have been together at a public event in 13 years." The band officially broke up in 2002.
