Bec Lorrimer – Photographer. PHOTOGRAPHY Oscar Diez @odiez. “Since I have lived in New York for the past 4 years I have found a new appreciation for travelling around Australia. My husband Oscar took me to Pebbly Beach in the Murramarang National Park on the NSW South Coast last Christmas. I couldn’t believe how peaceful and pristine it was. Australia really is a special place.”
From exotic far-away lands to those savoured spots a little closer to home, four New York-based creatives share with RUSSH the places they escape to.
Prior to his stint pioneering the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol was a highly sought-after commercial illustrator in New York. Explore Adman: Warhol before pop at the Art Gallery of NSW for a snapshot of this icon in his formative years in the public eye.
Visual artist, tattoo artist and friend of RUSSH, Ukraine-born Miso – aka Stanislava Pinchuk – creates works that are deeply personal and painstakingly detailed. Her latest and largest work to date, Sarcophagus, takes viewers to the Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone.
Model and artist Rachel Rutt is one half of Sydney-based electronic act Heart People, formed with Canyons DJ Ryan Grieve in pursuit of multi-sensory self expression. And with a sound like no other, Rutt is just one of the pioneering women of the city’s electronic scene set to play at Freda’s tonight as part of female-focused festival For Film’s Sake.
