Jennifer Nocon works with a multitude of materials to create her scale defying pieces. The pieces I had the pleasure of seeing att the Art Los Angeles Contemporary show in February were primarily felt. Gorgeous thick alive felt. We were awestruck by the response we had to her work. She works in Los Angeles which also made me proud to think about great art being made in the town I call home. She exhibits with the Tracy WIlliams Gallery. if you see word of her work being up go see it.

The DVF wrap dress installation at the LACMA Museum in Los Angeles was extended so make sure to steal the time to go see it this week if you haven't. I don't personally wear the dress and never have, maybe I was the generation in the middle and I wasn't the right customer at either of the points when it was singing the loudest. I do have a deep appreciation for the world that Diane Von Furstenberg has created. She is not only one of our nations great entrepreneurial success stories, she is one that has consistently tethered the world of her product to the world of fine art. GO DIANE, we need more art in our products here in the US. The show is a quick study and the bright pink hallway entrance was the most enchanting part, you feel like you're in her world the glamorous 70's in New York City. LACMA extended the show to May 1, 2014 and if by chance you can't make it the time lapse below walks you thru the entire exhibit in a couple of moments. A great marriage of art and commerce deserves to be celebrated.
One of my favorite artists and one of my favorite Angelenos is Ed Ruscha. I had the chance to attend a rare talk Ed gave at the Soho House in West Hollywood last year and it was very inspiring. This video brought me right back to the talk, I hope you will also be inspired by this great artists wise words.
