In the Studio with Paul Mpagi Sepuya

The flesh reveals itself in slivers and fragmented reflections. In color sometimes. Often in black and white. The curve of a bicep, a strand of hair, pants always dangerously low. L.A.-based photographer Paul Mpagi Sepuya mines the sensual spaces of the studio, filling every blank space with a bristling...

In the Studio with Joseph Algieri

Globs of resin, swirls of vinyl, piped loops of ceramic. From his studio in Brooklyn, artist and designer Joseph Algieri creates works where the natural order of things seems to be encouraged. Foam is left to settle into pools. Chaotic splatters create winning design motifs. The genius is in...

In the Studio with L.A. Designer Chris Earl

Chris Earl makes nice things. Things you’d like to have sitting in your living room, on your kitchen shelves. The the kind of things that make people say “Oooo… where did you get this?” when they walk into a home. That’s because Earl has an ingrained feel for quality,...

In the Studio with Shinji Murakami

Those of us of a certain age will remember it clearly: sitting in front of a tube television, our young reflections trapped in its thick curved glass, fingers moving furiously over the rudimentary plane of a controller. In the right hand: red buttons, A and B. In the left:...

At the Table with Night + Market’s Kris Yenbamroong

In some ways, Night + Market seems inevitable. Kris Yenbamroong, its chef and founder, grew up in the kitchen of his family’s restaurant. Talesai was sleek, sexy, upmarket–a place Yenbamroong’s father, then a banker, could bring his banker friends to. It was a Sunset Boulevard staple that, at its...

The Interrogator with Luz Ortiz

The work of jewelry designer Luz Ortiz—her loops of gold, drops of silver, spheres of polished stone—looks less fashioned by hand than it does harvested from nature itself. Her inspirational cues are taken from, as she puts it, “organic geometry,” with influences from architecture, modern art, and industrial design....

The Interrogator with Jae Joseph

The word “curator” gets bandied about liberally these days, employed and heard at a frequency that foreshadows inevitable meaninglessness. A skill set once reserved for the upper echelon of salaried tastemakers — proto-influencers, if you prefer — today, everyone with an opinion and an Instagram account can lay claim to the...

SIXTY Takes on John Cheever’s “The Swimmer”

In John Cheever’s classic short story “The Swimmer,” his protagonist, Neddy, uses his neighbors’ pools to swim his way home. He strings these man-made bodies of water together–a “river” in the wealthy outer suburbs of New York. Along the way, he drinks (heavily), talks (grandly), and swims (rather cavalierly)....

In the Studio with Vicki Sher

No matter the seeming sparseness of a Vicki Sher work, its fullness of purpose and intention is undeniable. Lines move freely across their surface. Colors–in circles, half-moons, misshapen squares–are employed confidently, piled on liberally or utilized with methodical reserve. The choice always seems a correct one, as though Sher has assessed a landscape...
