By John Malloy in New Film on Monday 30 March 2009

After hearing a year’s worth of speculation that this film might not see the light of day, the new Dave Eggers [McSweeney's] and Spike Jonze adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s vividly imaginative story Where The Wild Things Are is finally hitting the big screen. And I can’t wait! The subtle use of CGI on the faces makes the creatures even more eerily believable.

Jill Greenberg

By John Malloy in New Photography on Friday 19 September 2008

I’ve been a longtime fan of Jill Greenberg’s stunning and subtly manipulated photography for some time. Her incredible talent for accentuating her subject’s true personality, whether they be celebrities or animals, is uncanny. Unfortunately her latest work might find her in the midst of a lawsuit, but for now we can still enjoy these while photos they last.

Seripop’s screenprinting

John Malloy Reader Find

By John Malloy in New Art on Friday 29 February 2008

I love the work of the Montreal-based silkscreening group Seripop. Their choices of color and gritty, imperfect lines give the impression of ‘test-prints’ at first, but with further inspection reveal a definite conscious approach. [see also Lorin Brown]
