Summer Art Fridays: Photographer Eddy Vallante
It’s the end of the summer, and thus our last selection for our Summer Fridays blog. To finish up on an excellent note, we chose the work of 30-year-old Brooklyn photographer Eddy Vallante, whose portraits of musicians make his Tumblr a must-see. This shot, however, is of a puppy, gazing longingly out the window at something just out of reach. It’s how we all feel looking out at the last warm days of August.
Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.
This is a photo of Elly. I was watching her one afternoon in Crown Heights for friends of mine who had just gotten married. I was tossing a toy around with her when something outside demanded her immediate attention. She just ran over and sat down. I don’t know what it is, but I love when dogs sit and stare like this. It’s hilarious.
I haven’t ever, and I don’t think I ever will, find a more beautiful dress.
“To create a sculptural fabric, I am experimenting with the printing technique of marbling; combining embroidery, bonding and pleating. Applying these fabrics into fashion creates unusual and intricate fashion garments.”
Totally understandable if you weren’t bold enough to try the ombré hair thing—neither were we. But there’s no excuse not to rock these color-spectrum I.D. bracelets from Garnett Jewelry. Their brass forms were hit with bursts of lacquer-y paint in the hues of the most delicious Starburst flavors. Not that we’re thinking about candy this early in the morning. —erica

Mark Bradford, Smokey, 2003.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Mark Bradford. A mid-career survey of his artwork is on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. (Also, a couple of large-scale works are installed across the street from SFMOMA, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.) The exhibition was curated for the Wexner Center for the Arts by Christopher Bedford in 2010. San Francisco is its final stop.
