RAW NATURAL PHENOMENON

Drawing from life is one thing, but drawing from memory is a totally different game. Drawing from memory is a difficult task because of the guess work involved and the doubt of accuracy, even if it were a simple square. Let alone a complete landscape (of NYC). Steven Wiltshire’s accuracy in reproducing drawings from memory is an awing experience to watch.

Dino Paxenos is a collector.  All of us are in many ways, but some take this title to a level that is deeper, sophisticated and rewarding. The process of collecting and the standard of filtering is not an automated task. Todays technological world has made those tasks less worthy of recognition. Being able to filter and measure standards can’t be automated. A computer doesn’t have the capabilities to decipher quality and tradition. Programs are incapable of describing sound, taste, feel. These are all still human perceptions that can be filtered and organized into forms of presentable content.    MORE »

JACK DANIELS & HELMS WORKSHOP

There was a time when Jack Daniels gave me the visual of paper bagged bottles, barrel fires and slurry conversations. Those memories lack reason and as they fade to black new and more meaningful connections are made. It’s interesting to see how the company connects itself with images of tradition and crafts to create perceptions of value and history. This concept seems to work well, I’ll assume its the hands on rugged appeal that associates the two brands. Both of which leave the impression of gritty yet refined personalities.
