Last weekend the 8th BOS (Bushwick Open Studios) took place in my neighborhood. I saw a lot of great art and connected with really amazing people. Here are some of many favorites.

GLAAD OUT Auction

November 21st, 2011

Eva Mueller with "Black Back" image at GLAADF OUT Auction 2011

At the GLAAD OUT Auction with my oldie but goodie image “Black Back”. I was very happy that GLAAD chose an image of mine for the aution and be able to contribute to the cause.

There was some outstanding art for sale. My favorite piece there was Alic Trossman’s “Wel Come”, it made me laugh out loud.

AlicTrossman-Welcome

The main showcase piece for the live auction was Henri Matisse lithograph, that didn’t impress me at all and it went for half the market value.

Jordan Eagles work was the one that got the best bids. It was an absolutely gorgeous blood/copper/resin piece that looked like a stained glass window. When i looked up his work i was totally blown away. All his pieces are based on blood, but they have a power and depth that is incredible.

 

Topless at Fashion Night Out

September 9th, 2011

Last night during Fashion Night Out, I shot 5 gorgeous 7 ft tall models, wearing little else but Bootzwallas latest collection  and lots of body painted skin. Street artist Andy Golub gave our topless Amazones finishing touches on Hudson St and basically stopped traffic.  Then our sexy entourage started moving around the Meatpacking District, I had my assistant carry a big silver beauty dish and an Profoto strobe pack – courtesy of Fotocare rental., so we had our own mobile studio lighting with us. A definite high point was when the girls stopped at the Van Leeuwen ice cram truck (best ice cream  in the city and elsewhere!) to get their chilled fill and our last stop was Hogs and Heifers, needless to say to that went down. Camille Currie of PowerImagePR made it all come together drama free.  I will post more pics from out Bootzwalla invasion in the next days.

This is what those awesome guys from Blue Movie created to announce our shoot together.

Brainwaves

August 24th, 2010

The new exhibition Brainwaves uses the act of measuring brain activity (it’s associated sounds, machinery and logic) as source material for artistic exploration. The exhibit is an exploration into sound, art and science as it tackles the internal structures of the brains as much as the materials that measure it. Very cool!!
