On April 29 a private reception was held at Guy Hepner in West Hollywood, CA celebrating the highly successful run of two exhibitions at the gallery:
RUSSELL JAMES “An Intimate Perspective,” and NOMAD TWO WORLDS “Ngangk Koort Boodja (Mother Heart Land)” James’ new series of collaborative artworks with Indigenous Australian artist Lance Chadd.
James' own photographic exhibition featured new images of Kendall, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel, and a mix of his older, iconic works.
The Nomad Two Worlds exhibition featured several new collaborative pieces between James (the underlying photography) and Indigenous Australian artist Lance Chadd (the overlay art), including two new Kendall image pieces and two new Alessandra image pieces. Kendall and Alessandra join a long list of celebrities and business leaders who have also been photographed for the project, including Heidi Klum, Hugh Jackman, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, The Black Eyed Peas, Rhianna, Sir Richard Branson and more.
Hosted by Alessandra, Graywolf (frequent Nomad Two Worlds Native American advisor), Camera Work and Guy Hepner, attendees included Kendall (with her dad, Bruce Jenner), Nomad CEO Joyce Lanigan, Nomad Creative Director Ali Franco and Nomad Native American artists Jamie and Sandra Okuma. Actors Aaron Eckhart, Kelly Noonan and Rumor Willis, LA/NY based art advisor Andrea Feldman, and longtime Nomad supporter Alec Gores also stopped by to check out the new art. As per usual, Balance water supplied refreshments for the event (thank you!).
