Destructionis Hostis Vespa
September 14 - October 05, 2013
White Walls Project Space is pleased to present Destructionis Hostis Vespa by Paris-based artist, Ludo, featuring resin sculptures and works on paper. The opening reception will be Saturday, September 14, from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through October 05, 2013.
Reminiscent of scientific illustrations, Ludo creates a new take on nature with 10 28 x 20” paintings depicting the weaponized insect the show is named for, from multiple views. In the grayscale of graphite juxtaposed with a bright, fern green spray paint, the Destructionis Hostis Vespa is shown with the delicate wings and segmented body of a wasp alongside features of a sleek military aircraft. This aberrant hybrid speaks of a nature irrefutably fused with technological invention. There is a menacing edge to Ludo’s creations, though the work itself is full of surprisingly delicate details.
A sculptural rendering of the hostile wasp, in an edition of three, will be displayed in the center of the room, giving 3D form to the artist’s vivid imaginings.

The uber cool dudes over at Gear Patrol have a nice gallery of motorcycles titled: 50 Most Iconic Bikes in Motorcycle History. While I agree with many of the entries below, many I do not agree with it, but that's ok. I just think Iconic is a strong word to throw around. It ends up that in reality, it's a list of their favorite bikes. Slightly different but I guess 50 Favorite Bikes in Motorcycle History doesn't have that ring to it.
