New York, New York
Here in the densely populated tumblr wilderness, oft we seek the matchbook igniters to lead us through the mire. Peter Sutherland is one such flicker, and moving through his blog is like a gauzy golden hour roadtrip through Arches when you’re just a tiny bit stoned. He’s a myth-maker whose oeuvre moves from photography to video to a vinyl overlay on an amethyst geode and then to a giant pyramid of bumper-stickered Nalgenes.  




Inspired by the open road and all of the striking and horrifying things a lone wolf might stub his toe on out there, Sutherland’s work is comprised of the lifeblood of nomadic American iconography – burnt-up Chevy skeletons full of weeds, sprays of light on craggy ochre cliffs, abandoned Shell station-cum-skateparks, the wide blue sky. 
Yet underneath this imagery is a work that is rife with the rebellion of a sub-cultured millennial — the threat of economic apocalypse and ravaged landscape that has us wanting to slough our parents’ advice and reimagine ourselves as fuck-it-all back to the land rattlesnakes. Sutherland’s work is imbued with the freedom of a youth not yet abandoned, where skateboarders, surfers and nerdy cool kids stand as sentinels of a new freedom.
For Atelier Ace Issue — our new series of limited edition art prints — we asked Mr. Sutherland to envision a print for us to share with our extended family. New Amsterdamers can find this artist and other people we admire at The New York Art Book Fair, opening tonight at MomaPS1.

This prescription for a life lived all top down and outside the yellow lines made its way into a mezzanine drawer at Ace Hotel Portland and was found by an unsuspecting individual in need of some advice. The exact provenance is something of a mystery — though we believe the 5-step program, if not the transcription, to be the sage advice of a person six years of age, named Lucien. The Advice From Lucien Poster is our first in a series we’re creating in-house and with some of our favorite artists and young philosophers. It’s screenprinted in Portland on 250 gsm stone blue paper in a limited edition of 150. The word so far is it can really help out your life-living game.

We are not afraid of pixels. We do not fear them nor do we dishonor the good, hard work of their tamers, charmers and stewards. But we do love an ink-stained fingertip on a Sunday morning and the smell of real paper. You can’t read Arthur Magazine online. It is just a real newspaper. It’s beautiful and big. It folds out huge and confident. It takes up the whole fucking table. And it’s a really good read. This is their first issue in four years and it’s on real flesh and paper and paper only. Get one here.
