Ellen von Unwerth was born in 1954 in Germany, worked as a fashion model for 10 years, then gained fame when she first photographed Claudia Schiffer for Guess? Jeans. Since then her work has appeared in many fashion magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and Interview. von Unwerth has also directed short films for fashion designers, and music videos for several pop musicians.
Her photography has been exhibited at MoMA (2004), Galerie Wouter van Leeuwen, Amsterdam (2006), and Haus der Photographie/Deichtorhallen, Hamburg (2008), to name a few. Her most recent exhibit “Fräulein,” was at Staley-Wise Gallery in SoHo, New York City, at the beginning of this year. You have seen her work everywhere.
MoMA describes the exhibit as large-scale and surveys nearly three decades of work by William Kentridge (born 1955, South Africa), a remarkably versatile artist whose work combines the political with the poetic. Dealing with subjects as sobering as apartheid, colonialism, and totalitarianism, his work is often imbued with dreamy, lyrical undertones or comedic bits of self-deprecation that render his powerful messages both alluring and ambivalent. Best known for animated films based on charcoal drawings, he also works in prints, books, collage, sculpture, and the performing arts. This exhibition explores five primary themes in Kentridge’s art from the 1980s to the present, and underscores the inter relatedness of his mediums and disciplines, particularly through a selection of works from the Museum’s collection. Included are works related to the artist’s staging and design of Dmitri Shostakovich’s The Nose,which premieres at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in March 2010.

As his bio states: “ Marc Johns creates whimsical drawings filled with dry wit and humour. Whether it’s a man with branches growing out of his head that need pruning, or a pipe that’s trying to quit smoking, his characters are simply, sparsely drawn, yet speak volumes with just a few strokes of the pen. He’s been drawing since he was tiny. He’s not tiny anymore, but he’s not exactly big either. Marc is not sure why he’s talking about himself in the third person…I generally aim to say as much as possible with as few elements as possible.”
Much can be said in simplicity and Marc Johns prove this in his drawings. Here are some samples…
