FLOATER Opens January 29
"Floater" is a two-person exhibition showing large snap shot portraits by northwest photographer Kelly O and the documentary film ‘Super Noble Brothers’ by Los Angeles/Milwaukee based filmmaker Mark Escribano. Kelly O’s vivid portraits capture scenesters in a variety of compromising, naughty and unapologetic moments. Escribano’s film follows the lives of three brothers, small-time celebrities based in Milwaukee and L.A. who are deeply invested in rare record collecting and art making. Both of these artists document an energetic subculture that live a life of careless freedom.
Kelly O is a photographer and the originator of the infamous ‘Drunk of the Week’, published in Seattle’s weekly newspaper ‘The Stranger,’ where she has worked as assistant art director and most recently with photography and multimedia. Her saturated portraits depict city scenesters in compromising moments that some may regret and others will joke about for a lifetime. Her work has been published in SPIN, VICE, Mojo, Kerrang!, and FADER.
Mark Escribano is a Los Angeles based filmmaker. He is a professional photographer and cinematographer for independent films such as ‘Modus Operandi’ and William Shatner's ‘Gonzo Ballet.’ Mark is a recipient of the Peck School of the Arts Mary Nohl Fellowship. His work has been shown at the Dislocation Film Festival in the UK, The Pompidou Museum and both the Milwaukee and Cleveland International Film Festivals. He is also a member of part of 'The White Box Painters' performance troupe. ‘Super Noble Brothers’ will screen this month in Los Angeles as a part of LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).
