The dynamic work of sculptor Gaylord Ho is instantly recognizable. Emotion oozes from the figures, as they throw their energy into dancerly poses. His female figures twist and twirl, animated and vital. Born in Taiwan, the 66-year-old artist has a fascinating personal history. Growing up as the son of low income farmers, Ho was expected to balance his studies while helping on the rice farm.
Intriguing new photos have just surfaced on photographer Hedi Slimane's diary of the one and only Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. The rising star and rock progeny looks astounding, rocking jet black hair and several tattoos. Fashion photographer and former Dior Homme designer Slimane just posted these strikingly beautiful photos and the fashion world is all abuzz.
The sweet and innocent girl from the 2008 Harper's Bazaar photo shoot is long gone in these edgy, rock-and-roll photos. "This isn't just some cultish foundling," said Mary H. K. Choi, senior editor of MTV Style, in an interview. "She's absolutely owning the moment, and I think that's the first time we've seen her do that."
Though barely 19, some say that she’s wise beyond her years. In fact, it’s interesting to note that Frances has never exploited her inherited fame.
