Stanley Donwood's Lost Angeles
Opening tomorrow at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles is a new show by Stanley Donwood, which features an 18-foot apocalyptic panorama of the City of Angels being destroyed by fire, flood and meteor storm...
The work was originally carved into 18 separate panels of linoleum, then hand burnished onto Japanese Kozo paper to create the epic print. Shown here is an extract from the piece, above, plus other works from the Lost Angeles series that also form part of the exhibition.
The Lost Angeles series follows Donwood's work London Views from 2006, which featured London being consumed by fire and flood. A section from the London piece was featured on the cover of Thom Yorke's solo album Eraser. The London Views print will also be on show at Subliminal Projects, as well as an additional linocut by Donwood titled Fleet Street Apocalypse. Shown below is a billboard displayed on the side of the space:
And here are some installation shots from the show (photographs by Allan Shaffer):
Lost Angeles will be on display at Subliminal Projects until May 26. More info is at subliminalprojects.com.
I really like this project. I've never heard about Stanley Donwood, but now I've been looking for some of his works and I love his style. Thanks for the information!
Stanley Donwood's work is amazing! I really want to go see this exhibit, but I can not sadly make it on opening day. What other days besides opening day is the exhibit open? I HAVE TO GO SEE HIS WORK!
Discovered Stanley via Radiohead in the early 2000's and have followed ever since. Come back to the UK though Stanley...we want to see you over here!
