“Painting is a zombie medium. As a painter you are a little bit like a guy showing up in a tiger suit at a techno party. So your dress code is outdated, but you might still have the best moves on the dance floor.”
Nice works from Tal R. Check out his new zine at Nieves.
My good friend Anthony Cozzi has added a couple new prints to his store. Go take a gander at snowblined.com.
In the corporate world, which would you be a cowboy or an Indian? Both are brave, both are rebels, tricky, and both… are heroes.
The stylized work by artist Matt Clark, aka HOUSTON, has a playfulness remnant of a nostalgic Nonconformist who is stuck in Capitalism with the mantra, “The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning”.
Looking for a new sweet recipe to ease the bitterness of todays headlines?
Take several photographs: (An image, especially a positive print, recorded by a camera and reproduced on a photosensitive surface).
Half dozen or so layers: (A single thickness of a material covering a surface or forming an overlying part or segment).
Mix it all up with biota: (The animals, plants, fungi, etc., of a region or period).
Voila, here is your dessert: the ambrosial exhale of stunning works by Doug Fogelson. Now go on and face your day!
Nice book on feminist painters Lee Lozano, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, and Joan Semmel. Designed by 2×4.
LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.
Their work is inspiring in that it shares a completely organic vision still accessible through a pretty package… so to speak. Take a look at the links and you will not be disappointed.
