INEZ AND VINOODH MAGIC 1/4


Photographer couple extraordinaire Inez and Vinoodh have lent their genius imagination to Lady Gaga once again by directing her first video since her hiatus from the music world.
I love a good music video and I think Applause has some wonderfully creative aspects but some that aren't realized fully and need a lot more air time. It seems as though they have packed as many makeup and costume changes in as they could. Some I really feel could have been left out for a video that flowed better. Also a bit of a story line could have been cool but never the less their creative and professional touch certainly shines through. What do you think?

BLURRED LINES


Numskull
"Fashion takes from art and art takes from fashion- the relationship is mutual. For me, inspiration comes from old comic books and random bits of fashion. Like me, Miranda has recently joined parenthood. Someone with her fame and career must have a lot on her table, so I wanted to fill the cover with as much stuff as possible to represent this" 

David Bromley
"So many things go together well, not just fashion and art- dance and fashion, music and art. Creativity is a melting pot. My paintings have four or five processes. If you combine it all there's about a week's work in this painting of Miranda. She is delicate. I can be a bit of a bull in a china shop and treat the line work almost like calligraphy, where you slop your brush in and race through to create energy, but with her you have to be finer."

Ken Done
"Miranda is such a star, I tired to treat her in a slightly Andy Warhol way to make it as simple as possible. I've never met her, but all artists love beautiful things and she's beautiful. I use everything from oils and acrylics to crayons, but in this case its simply a crayon drawing. I did 30 or 40 before I found the one I liked. The things that last are great pieces that continue to give people pleasure."

Hugh Stewart
"I approach my photographs as portraits. I wanted to take pictures that were almost the opposite to how she's portrayed in campaigns. Less make-up, less glamourous and in a less glamorous location with less light. Miranda's usually very heavily made up and heavily lit. But because we were shooting in very low light, she had to sit very still and couldn't really do anything, so I was able to dictate how the picture would be." 


Absolutely loving the 4 covers this week for Sunday Style. Such a diverse range of Aussie art talent on one very amazing Aussie supermodel (read more about the artists on their websites below their pieces).  Snaps to Sunday Style for an amazing mag this week. Check it out here if you missed it.
