Pigment & Sound: Etienne Zack & Scott Morgan (aka loscil)

I recently shot two of my favourite artists; painter Etienne Zack and ambient musician Scott Morgan (aka loscil) both of whom are currently based in Vancouver (though Etienne is soon headed back to L.A. for a spell). These are two alternate takes which contrast with my earlier post of older B&W film portraits. Improvised quickly and on location, they keep the palette simple to keep the focus on character. It’s always interesting to be reminded of what remains consistent (or not) in approach over the years.

Scott has a new CD coming out on Chicago’s Kranky label titled “Sketches from New Brighton” and when I caught up with Etienne, he was doing some exploratory work involving fans and paint for a new piece to be shown in London later in the year. Etienne’s had a busy spring and had a series of well-received exhibits of his whip-smart and delightfully confounding paintings here in town. Keep an eye out for his work when you can.
