COMMENT DU JOUR
The BIG EYES Poster

"I didn't even notice the stars at first but that's why I like it. Tag line is clever. I hope Burton gone substance over style (while being stylish) with this one." - Jija

"The art is ugly creepy kitsch... that is, slightly above dogs playing pool and black-velvet Elvis. I have a hard time grasping why we should care who created it..." - Owen

Curio: Trevor Gutherie's Charcoal Drawings

Alexa here to bring a bit of contemporary art to your Monday evening. Trevor Gutherie is a Zurich-based artist who is well-known for his large-scale, photorealistic charcoal drawings that appropriate art history, found photographs, and imagery from contemporary culture with an often mordant wit.  “Appropriation for me is a subtle business,” he explains.
