A selection of amazing paintings by Marck Fink. There is something so playful and innocent about them… yet also something so dark.
To communicate both weighty (The Irish Famine, racism, war) and frivolous (clandestine love affairs with Bigfoot?) subject matter, Carson Ellis utilizes a subtle color palette and gentle linework. Her art is similar to children’s books in that the dialogue (if any) is limited, but the illustrations and their message speak volumes. And she’s married to Colin Meloy, the lead singer of The Decemberists!
As his name hints, [hu]Man vs. Machine delivers work created with traditional materials in order to mimic what can be done with the computer. His work is very enjoyable and ranges from ink drawings to paintings to installations.
Movie Time culminates with “Rivers and Tides,” an otherworldly documentary that follows renowned sculptor Andy Goldsworthy as he transforms and harnesses the elemental forces of ice, driftwood, rivers, and forests into works of ethereal and transient beauty.
The screenings are projected on the large outdoor screen located next to the Snack Bar. Seating is limited so arrive early to secure a chair, but if you get there late, no worries you can always sit on the floor or bring your own chair!
Drinks, snacks and popcorn as usual are available at Snack Bar!
“Rivers and Tides”- Wed, May 27

For the next couple weeks, I will be posting up some of my favorite applications (as well as previous works) of the Rhizome Commissions (Rhizome at the New Museum, one of my favorite media art blogs), a program which provides grants to new media artists exhibiting a large amount of potential but maybe aren’t yet fully recognized in their field.
Jeremy Bailey’s proposal, DIALECTICAL SOFTWARE GUNDAM SUIT, “intends to create a new live performance involving a software “suit” that augments and extends both the creative and destructive abilities of the performer. The image of the suit will be superimposed in real-time over the artist during the performance. The work will be satirical, but will appear as a sincere attempt by the artist to create a more advanced human form.”
Canadian Melissa P. maintains Mafia-Hunt which documents neat findings via the Internet, but it should also be known that she has an online portfolio devoted to her own fantastic work! I especially love her kooky characters and equally fun, hand drawn geometric shapes. More great drawings and collages after the jump!
Right off the bat, Venezuelan Nelson Garrido states the following: “To know limits is to begin to know that one does not have limits.” His work, brash and unapologetic, throws together Catholicism and American consumer culture, yielding incredibly fascinating results. Actually, to call his photographs “fascinating” would be an understatement. We’ll go with “riotous” after seeing Jesus depicted with three jumbo penises!
And for those with a strong stomach, check out one of his blog posts entitled “La Gruta de la Virgen.” You have been warned! This project in particular goes along with his passion for showcasing concepts deemed unacceptable by society.
