Timothy Hull: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow May 21 – July 9, 2011. Opening Reception: Sat, May 21, 6-8pm
hodie adsit, cras absit -Julius Caesar
Taylor De Cordoba is pleased to present Here Today, Gone Tomorrow, a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Timothy Hull. The exhibition will run from May 21 through July 9, 2011, with an opening reception for the artist on Saturday May 21 from 6-8pm. This is his third solo show with the gallery.
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow consists of drawings, paintings and wall installations addressing the provisional nature of time and history. Hull’s new work points to the fact that we exist in an eternal present and that what was, no longer is. In addition, the work explores ideas of representation, reproduction, cultural appropriation and recycling. Hull employs motifs from art history's distant past as well as from 20th century modernism; mixing and matching patterns, colors and styles that create links through time. The artist connects disparate points in time, such as pop culture imagery from 1980′s cause célèbre to rainforest patterns, Boy George, swatch watches, ruins from antiquity and museum displays as well as renaissance consort music. The artist presents many "doubles" or pairings, some nearly carbon copies of each other, and some similar but different. This is meant as a response to the philosophical questions raised by Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas on the nature of being and the essence of things, either real or imagined. The artist employs various artistic mediums, examining concepts such as travel, imperialism, Orientalism, west-meets-east and 1980's pop imagery. The juxtaposition of discursive imagery and messages from history asks the viewer to consider the factors that led us to this exact moment in time.

Matt (via Dana) invited me to his book launch for On a Stick at Border Grill in downtown LA. It was a night of small bites (lots of them) and smiles for miles. Which perfectly fit the theme of the book: party-perfect recipes... on a stick. Because eating anything on a stick is always more fun.
Seeing as I'm Vietnamese, I'm excited to try Matt's tasty looking recipe for Bo La Lot (betel leaf wrapped lemongrass beef), Caprese Sticks and Pizza Skewers (I know my French-Italian husband will love), and Grilled Fruit Skewers (for Lulu, our resident fruitcake).
Lulu lovesfood -- even in books. So I gave her Matt's book to review. Following are her thoughts caught on video:
Final verdict? On a Stick is good enough to eat. Like, for reals, eat!
