Check out Elk’s coverage of Susan Sarandon in Entertainment Weekly!
EW Writer, Chris Nashawaty, goes Toe-to-Toe with the actress…
"In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Susan Sarandon talks about life since splitting with her partner of two decades, Tim Robbins. When asked how things have changed for the 63-year-old Oscar winner since they parted ways, Sarandon said, “I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly in a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it’s loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.”

Nyehaus Gallery commissions Elk Studios to photograph the re-recreation of LA’s historic Ferus Gallery space at the 2010 Armory Show.  

"On January 29, 2010, Nyehaus and Franklin Parrasch Gallery re-opened the doors of the original, historic Ferus Gallery space at 723 N La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles with an exhibition entitled Ferus Gallery Greatest Hits Volume I. The exhibition was mounted as a collaborative homage to Ferus Gallery (1957 to 1965) and its pivotal role in the unveiling and development of major American artists of its time.  Ferus Gallery Greatest Hits Volume II continues the dialogue of these legendary artists by bringing the exhibition to New York at The Armory Show 2010. 

The outpour of radical artwork presented by Ferus Gallery in its seven-year history under the opposing styles of its impresarios Irving Blum and Walter Hopps was particularly impressive. During those years, the gallery’s agenda and scope enabled it to reconcile polarities in artistic styles and the artists’ torrential personalities. Andy Warhol had his first gallery show at Ferus in 1962 exhibiting his 32 Campbell Soup cans on a shelf constructed from a molding, the way one might see actual soup cans displayed in a market. The list of artists exhibiting at Ferus included Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, Larry Bell, Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston, Ken Price, Ed Kienholz (a founder with Hopps who sold his share to Blum for $500), Ellsworth Kelly, Josef Albers, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella and on and on.”

Elk Studios photographs client Cumulus Studios' Spring 2010 Collection in NYC and Art Basel Miami. Check out Elk Studios' photo of Mark Dion's Croquet Set featured in ArtReview.
Elk Studios friend and art critic, Charlie Schultz says in ArtSlant ”…the defining factor that separates Cumulus Studios from all the other galleries, Cumulus specializes in outdoor functional objects made by contemporary artists.” 
 


CHARLIE SCHULTZ: “What was the germ of this concept?” I asked. 
 

NATALIE KARG: “Basically, I was trained as an architect and a landscape designer. I used to design a lot of gardens, really big beautiful gardens, and part of my job was finding cool furniture to fit with the garden. I also spent a lot of time around the art world, and I really just merged the two worlds. I thought, artists would make really funky stuff for gardens, and Cumulus grew out of that.”

Another Circle (curated by Amy Smith-Stewart/artist: Jen DeNike)
Elk Studios attends and photographs artist Jen DeNike’s, “Another Circle” - a pop up installation just after Jen’s PopRally “Scrying” performance.
As featured in the NY Times: “In February, [Amy Smith-Stewart], mounted “Another Circle,” which invited art-world insiders to 128th Street to see a video installation by Jen DeNike featuring a ballerina doing an endless pirouette, projected on a wall of a warehouse that used to store furs and beer (guests had to sign waivers to enter the decrepit space). Nothing sold. But that, she insists, was not the point. She just wanted to find a dramatic context to illuminate the work, she said. As Fabienne Stephan, another gallerist, explained, “she still thinks like a curator.”
The floating gallery concept, however, is not without hazard, she acknowledged. By giving up a physical location, Ms. Smith-Stewart risks confusing the city’s gallery-hoppers and deep-pocketed buyers who may not be used to trekking all over the city in the art-world version of a scavenger hunt.”

Commissioned by Nyehaus Gallery, Elk Studios photographs the Ken Price installation: Sculpture and Drawings, Works from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
"Perhaps more than with any other series of Price’s career, these works straddle a narrow precipice separating the elegant from the abhorrent, and the graceful from the crude. Sexual and scatological associations are inevitable reactions to the bulbous protrusions of the eggs and globular asymmetry of the lumps and bumps. InSpecimen CJ1303 a strangely shriveled glistening form rests upon a cushioned base like a prize winning biological experiment from a post-war science fair."
