In the Studio with Paul Anthony Smith

Paul Anthony Smith’s exteriors often work to direct a viewer to his subject’s hidden inner core, if only to speculate, dream, wonder. Whether it’s the manipulated surface of a photograph or the blocky lines in an oil painting, Smith’s attention to the outer-facing begs the question: What lies beneath?...

The Brooklyn Girl’s Guide to South Beach

In the dead of winter, there are no more appealing trips for a New Yorker than one down to Miami Beach, where the sun shines eternal. The trading in of sand for snow is a welcome one, and an easy choice to make. And it’s a choice Lauren Gould,...

On the Road with Julia Jacklin

If there’s something that fits right in with the current global mood, it’s Australian musician Julia Jacklin singing a cover of The Strokes’ “Someday.” Raw, thoughtful, mournful, patient.
