2. Aeon in Sri Lanka
3. OS Gemeos “Opera of the Moon”


We join Vermibus once again with this earlier video and a piano score by Rob Costlow to erase the faces of advertisements and reveal something about their aura, their mummy-like qualities. With gestural movements of the brush soaked in solvent Vermibus transforms the perfect models that evoke emotions and longing into a mutation of same with the brutality of Bacon. Francis Bacon that is.

Aeon in Sri Lanka

On spraycation, and his honeymoon, in Sri Lanka this summer, Mr. Aeon found this abandoned hotel in a gorgeous setting. Damaged ten years ago from the tsunami, the place needed a little paint, which he laid on while wifey was sitting poolside. So this is how it starts.


OS Gemeos “Opera of the Moon”

A primer on Os Gemeos from The Wall Street Journal on the occasion of their exhibit “Opera of the Moon” at Sao Paulo’s Galpão Fortes Vilaça.
