Interview with Alan James Flux

Interview with Alan James Flux

Interview of Alan James Flux by Dana Langlois, curator DL: Your work in fashion photography rebels against the industry practice of using professional models, stylists and elaborate lighting to get a high-gloss finish.  Specifically you “find” your models often just by walking around Phnom Penh.  It reminds me a little of a Benetton campaign about twenty years ago that would dress models found on the streets of Sri Lanka, Jordan and other equally exotic locations. In comparison, your work seems to have a more artistic and less commercialized intent –…

Body of Work by Alan James Flux

Fashion portraiture by Alan James Flux 17 March – 30 April, 2016 When talking about photographing models, Flux calls it “portraiture with a fashion bias.” The models are not selected because they make the clothes look good, but instead they made an impression on the well-established designer. The resulting images are as much about the individual as it is about the cut of the fabric. None of the models in Flux’s work are professional – instead he encounters them when they are engaged in everyday activities. He recently commented on…

A conversation with Nicolas C. Grey

A conversation with Nicolas C. Grey

A short conversation with Nicolas C. Grey and Dana Langlois (curator): Dana: You mentioned that the works in the show are like two worlds, one physical and one imaginary, that are colliding into each other and slowly dissolving, disappearing.  Did you plan the show that way? Nic: It was organic.  It started with Supreme Power Structure of the Interior Worlds, the big one, which took a while – because I drew it and re-drew it.  It has a narrative but it’s not clear what – it is set on a…

The Disappearance by Nicolas C. Grey

The Disappearance by Nicolas C. Grey

2 December, 2015 – 28 February, 2016 The Disappearance is a body of work by Nicolas C. Grey using pen, ink, collage and found photographs and objects.  The exhibition has been composed as an installation – each work is experienced in relation to the other. In one room, Grey has laid out objects on the floor and the wall that he says are “clues to a mystery.”  But it becomes quickly evident that the mystery is unresolvable.  This sets the tone for the entire exhibition that moves between imagined worlds…
