We now bizarrely, in our age, follow the narratives of famous strangers, feeling as though we know them in some weird way by following their trial and errors. We follow them to gain some understanding of who and where we ourselves are. Modern man in search of a soul, said Jung.

Los Angeles Redux: Photographic Memories From the Getty Center

Los Angeles is two cities: one of the rarefied film world whose players live secluded in the Hollywood hills; the other the working city, populated by panhandlers, grifters and grafters, the wide boulevards down which course the cabs, limos and fender-bent Fords in a twilight that could be early morning or the dim mauve of after sunset.

Warhol, To China And Back: The Art Market Changes Forever

Michael Frahm | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Entertainment

As a fascinating parallel export, Warhol's art itself can be seen as a strong foreshadowing of Chinese contemporary art; consider his 1972 Mao, which aligned itself to the legacy of his other numerous "celebrity" portraits, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe.

Slavery and Popcorn: '12 Years A Slave'

Neil Durkin | Posted 12.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Neil Durkin

It's a film with little to seriously unsettle the viewer. Most 12 Years audiences will be expecting two-and-a-quarter hours of high-calibre spectacle on the subject of how slave-owners in USA's pre-Civil War southern states mercilessly mistreated their human "possessions". And this is precisely what they get. It's confirmational stuff.

Celebrating Iggy Pop

Tom Wilcox | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Tom Wilcox

Iggy Pop is one of the most seminal figures in music. Without Iggy Pop there would be no punk, and rock/pop music would not have evolved such deviant shades. The revolutionary influence of his eclectic career is antithetic to his lack of commercial success in the first half of his career, from the 60's to 1986.

"I don't get played on the radio anymore, and quite rightly so, because it's other people's turn. At my age I can do what I want." Elton's comment illustrates one of the admirable traits of this founder figure of popular music - his benevolence. He has always been generous with his support of new bands.

'Art about art' can be sterile, or not as technically adept as the reference work. Artists (often with poor draftsmanship) can ape historic work in an effort to claim its significance for themselves.

What's in a Name? Is Brand Identity Art?

James Burke | Posted 13.08.2013 | UK Lifestyle
James Burke

Graffiti always seemed to me a purer form of the concept of 'brand identity' and one that came with real artistic flair, mystery, energy and danger. What traditionally set graffiti artists and brands apart was the drive for something beyond financial gain.

Thomas Woodham Smith

I am so torn between my old love and my new one. They are both low key, food and wine centred, disinterested in show or pretence in any way. In the end I think I can cope with two Maastricht Sjieks in my life. It is not a betrayal after all.
