Los Angeles Times Reviews Drucker and Ernst at Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on October 15, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Los Angeles Times art critic Christopher Knight devoted a recent column to the new show by photographers and filmmakers Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst, "Relationship," at the Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City.

Explaining that the show features two videos and 62 photographs that were featured in the Whitney Biennial this year, Knight compares the work to Cathy Opie and calls the works "capital-R Romantic portraits - often dreamy, preternaturally still and imbued with clear and gentle light - of one or the other, or of the couple together" over the course of nearly six years. "Further complicating "Relationship,"" adds Knight, "is its status as a record of a transgender couple. Their bodies are transitioning in opposite directions (for Drucker from male to female, and for Ernst…

Akasha Richmond Will Bring Indian-Influence Cuisine to Former Ford's Filling Station Space in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on October 8, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

In June, Ford's Filling Station in downtown Culver City abruptly closed up shop. Now the Los Angeles Times has some great news: Akasha Richmond, the mastermind behind one of my very favorite Culver City restaurants (uh...Akasha) has signed a lease to take over the space and offer a menu she describes as "Indian-Influenced."

Indian food is, Akasha told the Times, "primarily about spices — masalas and masala blends. It’ll be Indian-influenced, but not a typical Indian restaurant. More small plates and street foods focusing on Indian flavors. But also things you eat at home too. Indian comfort food.”
