Stepping up to the plate for our latest fave five this week comes Adsum founder and head designer Pete Macnee. Though he does cheekily crowbar his own (admittedly ace) brand into one of his choices he does make up for this faux-pas later via the surprise inclusion of a jar of mustard. Speaking of mustard I bet you’re keen to know more now aren’t you?
A friend of mine who works at a gallery in NYC put me onto Dan McCarthy. Dan’s work is really original; I don’t anyone else making work like it. Each one of his face pots will have a different expression and color combo. It’s powerful standing in a room full of them. I admire his commitment too. This wasn’t a fleeting idea for him, it’s a group of work that he’s been dedicated to for a while.
Tom Thomson. He’s from the group of seven. They were a group of painters from Canada that travelled around together painting mostly landscapes. Interestingly, Tom died mysteriously in Algonquin Park which is a national park I grew up canoe tripping in during the summers.
Donnie Trumpet, Drug Cabin, Jadakiss & Jeff Tweedy.
Amora mustard. Goes on most things.
