Artist Jim Kazanjian’s work is a series of dramatic black & white backdrops; photography of the surreal.
American artist and architect Paul Laffoley’s work is usually classified as visionary art or outsider art: most of his pieces are painted on large canvases and combine words and imagery to depict a spiritual architecture of explanation, tackling concepts like dimensionality, time travel through hacking relativity, connecting conceptual threads shared by philosophers through the millennia, and theories about the cosmic origins of mankind.
Paul Paper lives in Vilnius, Lithuania where he daydreams, sleeps, walks and sometimes takes pictures. He shoots spontaneously, capturing what he calls “the tiny tiny miracle in boring every day.”
I only wish that the world was as much fun as the one in Omar Meradi’s video.
Last but not least is Polish artist Wojciech Kosma who spent took some birthday shots with us last Friday. Wojciech lives between Berlin and London, working between art and composition. His artworks and performances are often spatial, sonic, obliquely interactive and poetic, creating speculative aesthetic interventions and oft times deal with pain and endurance: how long an audience can extend their short attention span to “endure” an image that does not change drastically, how long a female performer could perform the act of oral sex on a microphone, or how to “Count down and come or fail to come on one.” Wojciech’s answers were brief but to the point, you can check a more in-depth interview by Johanna Reed (who performed his piece Friday night).
Gustaph Meulemans’ use of geomtric shapes and screenprint color quality make his work stand out against todays vibrant and explosive colors.
