Reject art that matches your furniture, like the shit displayed in hotel rooms and lobbies, franchise restaurants, or fucking Pinterest accounts. That art inevitably fades, slowly dissolving into the background of the decaying spaces they inhabit. That art is transitory, quietly drowning in the riptide of superficiality of the rooms that contain them.

The art we feature stands apart from spaces, transcending dry-wall, paint hues, and attached décor. It doesn’t match; it distinguishes, it conflicts. It says something to, and about, the person who collects it. It represents a connection between the soul of the artist and the soul of the collector. It is valuable.

Captivating artwork by SilllDa, a Korean illustrator based in Japan.
Lost Highway is a 1997 neo-noir film directed by auteur David Lynch and co-written by Lynch and writer Barry Gifford (who wrote the book Lynch adapted years earlier for Wild at Heart). It stars Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, Balthazar Getty, and Robert Blake. 

Full of some of Lynch’s most haunting imagery, Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress (Patricia Arquette). 

The narrative structure of the film is an iconic example of “Lynchian surrealism” a type of narrative structure that David Lynch has become synonymous with, especially after the box-office success of his following film, Mulholland Drive, and is often compared to a Mobius Strip. 

In contrast to many critics, the Palace considers this film to be far superior to Mulholland Drive, as we see Lost Highway as the playground where Lynch is at his most reckless in disrupting film narrative. We see it as a clear inflection point between his earlier masterpieces, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, and his later work - Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire, where Lynch makes a stark break from the remnants of typical realism and takes the viewer through the depths of nightmare and horror in the most exhilarating way. Oh, and it features Robert Blake as the most horrific villain imaginable, only a few years before he was tried for the murder of his wife.

The most wonderful fact about Lost Highway, however, is the tongue-in-cheek inclusion of a negative review from the most prominent critics of the time. He featured “Two thumbs Down” on the promotional advertising for the film as a way to attract movie-goers…
We are big fans of North Carolina based mural artist @kathryncrawfordart 🙌🏻

“Kathryn works back and forth from large scale to studio work; from aerosol being her primary medium, to acrylic.  She is focused on exploring abstracted realism, and combining design with representational imagery.”

We are longtime fans of Montreal based artist @miss_me_art - check out her website below for more of her powerful art.

“An activist, feminist, and one of the most recognized outlaw artists in North America, MissMe’s unapologetic pieces command attention in sharp tones, exploring her own struggles with race, gender, society, and class while uplifting icons of the past. Her compelling, elegant, and sometimes unsettling large-scale wheatpastes swallow buildings whole, confronting issues of dignity ­and forcing us to reconsider our own truths.”
