Dawn Cooke: Jesse Stark Fundraiser

jesse-stark-1

By Dawn Cooke Let me tell you a little story about Jesse Stark. Jesse starting tattooing as a young man and like most of us had to struggle to learn the craft of tattooing. Jesse worked in Detroit for a while. When I say he worked in Detroit I mean in the city not the suburbs. He was shot at one too many times there and he left to work in the safer community of Ann Arbor… Read More »

Just Eat It: Winter Pasta Bowl

winter-pasta-bowl

By Stiff My inspiration for cooking can come from a variety of things. Sometimes I get inspired by having a dish from a restaurant that I’ve never had before and try to replicate it at home. Sometimes inspiration comes from recipes I may see on television. I mostly get inspired by the certain items I see in the grocery store or farmer’s market. Sometimes I fail at the outcome of what I’m making and sometimes I succeed. I just like to try new things and expand my horizons when it comes to testing new ingredients or cooking methods. James, my husband is a great guinea pig. He will generally eat whatever I make and is honest about how the food tastes. Unlike James, I myself am much more critical about how my food turns out. Read More »

yoko-d-holbachie

Last Rites Gallery: What is your earliest memory of picking up a paintbrush? Tell us a little more about it. Yoko d’Holbachie: I attended a painting class run by an American couple when I was 3 years old. I drew monsters, ghosts and snails with a shell full of eye balls often. Last Rites Gallery: What does In the Dark mean and why did you choose it for your exhibition at Last Rites Gallery? Yoko d’Holbachie: I loved the gallery’s space coronation for the dark art, when I visited the Last Rites Gallery. It inspired me for new painting idea that the beautifully glowing critters in the gloom. What I wanted to paint for this exhibition is actually the gleam in the dark, not the dark. Last Rites Gallery: Please tell us a little bit more on why you paid tribute to contemporary and classical mythologies in some of your pieces? (Ayida Weddo, Hatmehit, Gorgon?) Yoko d’Holbachie: My critters in my painting had been living inside of me. They have no name. I borrow the stories from various kind of mythologies, when I give a birth to my critters and the story suits to them. Those goddesses I like are not just having super power but also evil, angelic, humanistic, and a mother… Read More »

4people

(Interview by Dawn Cooke) Dawn Cooke: What was your first tattoo? Debra Yarian: I wish I could remember the name.  It was a name on an older Mexican man’s hands, at a flea market in Phoenix, Arizona.  We were on our way back to California and he had a step van there that he had converted into a tattoo shop.  At the time people would set up on the weekend and tattoo at this flea market.  I mean, Peter’s Tattoos – who was Peter Poulos, a legitimate shop – would set up at the flea market too…  Read More »
