Darren Sylvester. 2012. Compass Point. Melbourne: M.33.

Darren Sylvester, known for his stylised constructed tableaux images redolent of pop culture takes a very different approach in his book Compass Point. In the 1970s and 80s Compass Point Studio, located on the coast of Nassau in the Bahamas, was recognised as one of the great music facilities in the world producing music with a particular sound – that of luxury, decadence and sophistication. Artists such as Grace Jones, Roxy Music, Robert Palmer and Talking Heads all made seminal albums here.

Prompted by rumours that the studio was about to close, Darren Sylvester – a recording musician himself – decided to venture there before it was all over, wanting to focus on the landscape that surrounds the studio as a myth-making and myth-destroying exercise. He wanted to see and convey the same views that musicians who recorded there would see when seeking inspiration.

Richard Prince:

  • The Moon, 2007. Inkjet and acrylic on canvas; 81.5 x 100 in (207 x 254 cm).
  • The Fountainhead, 2010. Inkjet and acrylic on canvas; 86 x 92.5 in (218.4 x 235 cm).

Begun in 2004 at the juncture of the Nurse and De Kooning paintings and evolving through the Canal Zone and After Dark series, the Tiffany paintings reflect Prince’s continuing attentiveness to the recurring patterns and suggestive potential of advertising, honed by years of perusing newspapers and magazines. These almost abstract, monochrome paintings treat the plain yet distinctive ads that New York’s most famous jewelry brand has run daily for many years in the upper right hand corner of the same page of The New York Times, while echoing associations with another classic, Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, whose object of desire Holly Golightly lures admirers only to elude them later.

Capote considered his Tiffany to be the strategic marker of the second phase of his career, in which he refined his prose into a clearer and more subdued form before moving on to his crowning achievement, the visceral non-fiction novel, In Cold Blood. Prince’s Tiffany paintings are terse, tenuous combines of material reference and literary allusion comprising, in addition to the aforementioned Tiffany ads, scanned news events, obituaries, and the occasional autobiographical note. This field of reference is then painted over in a manner evocative of post-war Abstract Expressionism, from its sedimentary layers and floating blocks of color to the swipes and splatters of its more animated moments. In some cases, words and phrases snatched from the ad copy – “will be girls,” “undecided, and “Picasso”— are echoed suggestively in the titles of paintings; in others, such as Poetry, headlines charged with dread and import loom through obfuscating veils of paint.
