Keep Me From Harm, Peter Murphy

“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.”


I came out to attack people and I’m honestly having such a good time right now

Joanne Nam’s paintings are only a fraction of the lush, labyrinthian stories that inspired their creation. Stark, finely wrought visions of nightwalks and blurry memories populate the landscape of Nam’s world, leaving a ghostly but familiar chill with the viewer. In this interview, Joanne Nam delves into her upbringing in the forests of Korea, relating the strange impressions her life has left on her that continue to inspire her work. “I am not going to paint an old man dragging a dead dog,” she says—a recurring memory of hers—“However, I would definitely paint a girl feeling the strangely beautiful disturbance.” Nam lives and works in Los Angeles.

I sat here with my crush and we made out blah blah and it got late and the park was closed so we had to climb over the giant gate. It was so much fun.
