Angela Dalinger This month I will have my first exhibition in Germany in an Italien bookshop in Berlin ( Raum Italic ) together with the artist Robert Deutsch. They asked us to do a new movie poster for an italien movie…and this was the only one I remembered. The 120 days of sodom, a quite disgusting movie. excerpts from my first Werewurf comic Love love love your work, Angela! Keep 'em coming! Would love to see a bingo parlor! 4 Ways You Can Dress Like an Architect 4 Ways You Can Dress Like an Architect 1. All black.2. Black with a bit of grey.3. Black with a bit of white.4. The images of creatures in this series are all made up of thousands of pictures of flowers. The symbiotic relationship between the two, flowers and pollinators, make them almost one being, neither exist without the other, they are separate parts of the same organism. They are one and the same, the need of each for the other to exist so great that they merge to one being. Contained and nestled in the constructs are some human figures, perhaps faeries or dryads, that live within and around the flowers. Part human, part insect, part plant, they protect, commune and provide connection between our being and the greater whole of the production of life. They sleep and dream inside the flowers.

Cubist Interpretations Famous artist and illustrator Federico Babina is known for his modern drawings inspired by old cubism artistic style. Developed by Pablo Picasso and George Braque in the early 1900s, cubism was a very influential visual art style that rejected inherent concepts that art should be a reflection of nature. Instead, they threw out the rule book and created new methods of stylisation and distortion to emphasize the two-dimensional nature of the canvas, reducing objects to geometric shapes. Throughout this series, Babina draws famous icons from music, cinema and painting, usually discernible from a facial characteristic. Starving Artist Recipes I used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative. Due to my extreme laziness when it comes to kneading, I turn to Jim Lahey’s genius invention, the No Knead Pizza Dough. It’s foolproof, thank G-d, and makes 2-3 pizzas, which will keep in the fridge for a few days.

First Lady Despite being one of a number of Swiss designers who emigrated to Italy after the Second World War, Lora Lamm remains relatively unknown compared to her fellow Swiss emigrés such as Walter Ballmer, Carlo Vivarelli and Max Huber. Zurich's Museum für Gestaltung sets out to change that this summer, with a new exhibition of Lamm's exuberant work for clients such as Pirelli and department store La Rinascente, for whom she worked extensively in the 1950s and 60s. Lamm studied at the Kunstgewerberschule, Zurich and moved to Milan in 1953, originally working for Studio Boggeri before joining La Rinascente in 1954, where Huber later joined her. As the store began to market specifically to women customers, Lamm was enlisted as a consultant to create campaigns for everything from hot water bottles to scooters. She went on to forge a successful career as an art director, eventually returning to Zurich in 1963.

Lisson Gallery The American artist Fred Sandback (1943–2003) worked with elastic cord and acrylic yarn to delineate or bifurcate three-dimensional space, creating room-filling volumetric forms using the most minimal of means. By stretching single strands of yarn point-to-point to create geometric figures, Sandback’s near intangible objects nevertheless amounted to precise and subtle delineations of pictorial planes and architectural volumes. Despite this relationship to the built environment and to the practice of drawing, he became known primarily as a Minimalist sculptor, alongside such contemporaries as Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt and Carl Andre, but Sandback was also a forerunner of and a major influence on many of today’s installation artists. Contrary to his own matter-of-fact artistic statements about his practice, his work has been said to conjure up references to architecture, painting, sculpture and even music, given his early fascination for stringed musical instruments.
