Gallery artist Frohawk Two Feathers recorded a song and video with Mia Doi Todd & Om’Mas Keith in support of California Proposition 37 GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS. LABELING. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Election day, November 6, 2012 is fast approaching, and Californians have the opportunity to pass this very important law.
Proposition 37 would require food sold in supermarkets to be labeled if it contains genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.
Studies have shown links between GMOs and cancer, allergies, and organ toxicity.
Monsanto and other GMO and pesticide firms have contributed nearly $35 million to oppose Proposition 37.
All of Europe, Russia, India, Japan and China require labeling of genetically engineered food, and so should we.
We are what we eat, and we have the right to know what we are eating!

All Gold Everything. An Elegy.
September 8 – October 27, 2012
Taylor De Cordoba is pleased to present All Gold Everything. An Elegy, a new series of paintings on paper by Los Angeles artist, Frohawk Two Feathers. The exhibition will run from September 8 – October 27, 2012 with an opening reception on Saturday, September 8th from 6 – 8PM.
All gold. All gold anything. (x4) I want. I want everything.
All gold. All gold anything. (x2) All gold. All gold everything.
So begins Soulja Boy and Young L’s 2011 hip-hop hit “All Gold Everything.” And so ends the final chapter of Frohawk’s trilogy detailing the battles for and the eventual conquest of Hispaniola. Beginning in LA in 2011 and looping across the country to NY, Denver, and back to LA again, the story follows Andre Lafayette (a character loosely based on Toussaint L’Ouverture and Jean Jacques Dessalines) and his confederates as they eliminate (and co-opt) their former colonial masters, the Company Crocodile, and anyone who would stand in their way.
In his typical complex fashion, Frohawk weaves layered and at times clashing stories of falsified, glorified, and rectified histories that draw upon various traditions and religions, forming connections across time and geographical space.
Although still painted in his recognizable and signature style, the works in All Gold Everything. An Elegy highlight a brighter, more vivid, and tropical color palette of vibrant blues, yellows and lush greens. Stylistically, Frohawk creates his own iconographic language, mixing Egyptian, Carib/Arawak, African, Pre-Columbian, and Abrahamic symbolism. This convergence of both domestic and imported religions and cultural traditions results in a syncretism typical of Frohawk’s graphic interwoven tales.
Works include “Let Me Upgrade Ya,” and “Most Young Kings (The Death of Andre I)” demonstrating the artist’s continuous vocal narrative and visual mix of all things current and past.
Frohawk Two Feathers has exhibited internationally with shows in Miami, Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C. and Cape Town. His work is currently on view at the MCA Denver for his solo exhibition We Buy Gold, We Buy Everything, We Sell Souls. The artist has been featured in myriad publications including Art in America, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Flaunt, New American Paintings and The Huffington Post, among others. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Taylor De Cordoba is located at 2660 S. La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036. 310.559.9156
“Frohawk Two Feather is an artist, historian, myth-maker and codifier. As his unusual moniker suggests, Frohawk is not your average storyteller. His illustrated tales look like the unexpected menage-a-trois of your history textbook, a romantic-era portrait, and your fav old school hip hop album art. It doesn’t quite make sense and yet, it works.”

Gallery artist Sasha Bezzubov is part of an upcoming exhibition
19th Noorderlicht International Photofestival
Oranje Nassaulaan 12, Heerenveen
September 1 – October 7, 2012
The 19th Noorderlicht International Photofestival, Terra Cognita is a photography exhibition about the relationship between man and nature. How do we experience nature, and what is its value for us? Our romantic longing for pure nature is diametrically opposed to the practical desire to control the world and cultivate it. Terra Cognita looks at nature far away and close by, as a dream and as reality – nature in our genes, and in our minds.
The series ALBEDO ZONE is comprised of black and white photographs of glacial ice and glacier water. They were made in Alaska, consistent with a scientific system that calculates the degree of reflection of solar energy from the terrain, a technique that is important to the study of climate change. This reflective capacity is termed ‘albedo’. Ice reflects warmth, whereas water absorbes it, a mechanism that strengthens warming effects. Bezzubov made silver gelatin prints, which gives the spaces a delicate beauty.
