Our friend and neighbor Jane Kurson has launched a website focused on her work as a Painter. Jane has spent most of her career as a film and television editor on movies like Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice" and most recently director Patty Jenkins's "Monster", the film about Aileen Wuornos that features Charlize Theron's Oscar winning performance.
The last few years she's focused much of her time and attention on a new artistic pursuit, and itís been great fun to see Janeís portfolio grow, and witness the development of a distinctive style and artistic sensibility that reminds me of Impressionists like Gauguin. With two showings of her work already, Jane seems well on her way to establishing herself as a serious artist. Now if we can just get her to do a painting for our house!
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well someone said that anyways.Ok, well they aren't exactly the same layout, but I knew immediately that the recent Ocean's 11 Layout reminded me of this great Album from 1990 which i once owned on cassette. Maybe it's just synchronicity, or maybe the designer was a Smithereens' fan.
