Adam walked into Nina's house a couple of weekends ago, as we were drinking wine and eating dinner. "Hey, I'm Nina's neighbor," he said, grinning.
Nina gestured to a new print she had picked up hours ago, and told me that this talented man had created it. I was intrigued.
We chatted, and I found out that Adam belonged to Austin art collective Common House (906 E. 49th St). There was a photographer there whom Nina thought I would like.
"Tolly. Seriously. You would go crazy over her stuff. I think her name is Autumn."
(This is Autumn.)
The photographs above are all by local photographer Autumn Spadaro, and Nina was right: Hers is the kind of art that makes me want to build more walls in my house, so I can cover whole sections with her shadowy black-and-whites. If you like them too, Autumn's work currently hangs in two spaces: Common House through the end of December, as well as End of An Ear Records.
Also. Guess what, Reader. Today I will visit a different sort of artist ... a hair color artist. It's the close of a chapter, my redhead chapter! I'm nervous. But ready. More on that tomorrow.
