Ben Rayner

Based in London, photographer Ben Rayner has worked with numerous clients including, but certainly not limited to, Dazed and Confused, Nylon Magazine, Vogue France, Apple Converse, Nike, and XBOX/Guitar Hero. His compositions perfectly encapsulate the energy of his subjects–whether it be the childlike enthusiasm of The Go! Team or the freshness of Adele’s voice.

Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley

Via large-scale installations, Antony Gormley explores relationships with nature in a radical investigation of the body as a place of memory and transformation. His recent work increasingly engages with energy systems, fields and vectors, rather than mass and defined volume, evident in works like CLEARING, BLIND LIGHT, FIRMAMENT and ANOTHER SINGULARITY.

Magalie Guerin

Magalie Guerin

Montreal-born Magalie Guerin currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. With machine-like precision, she uses ballpoint ink on paper to create incredibly detailed pieces reminiscent of the visual texture of dollar bills. Her art reminds me of a cross between the elegance of Civil War portraits and the distortion of carnival funhouses.

Keren Taggar

Keren Taggar

Illustrator Keren Taggar hails from Jerusalem, Israel, where she recently graduated with honors from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Particularly adept at storytelling, Taggar draws mostly thoughts and feelings–things that are deemed “un-drawable.” I really enjoy how her precise lines retain a strange mellowness in spite of serious subject matter.

Don Porcella

Swimming Hole, 8 x 8 x 8 feet, 2008

When I first saw the work of Don Porcella, I found it to be quite humorous,  and with a second glance I realized how much detail he puts into each one of his sculptures. Each one is made of pipe cleaners and  I find all the different things he chooses to make with them quite creative.

Gallery Tour – LeBasse Projects

LeBasse Projects

We interns went exploring/gallery hoppin’ this past week, as the Beautiful/Decay office resides conveniently in the heart of the Culver City Art District.

I was particularly charmed by “Seasonal Change,” a group exhibition which just opened at LeBasse Projects on June 20th. With a line-up featuring the talents of Edwin Ushiro, James Roper, and Tessar Lo, this exhibition just sounded so promising! Some pieces are ethereal with slightly serious undertones; others are blatantly whimsical and playfully riotous, but all seem to be on the brink of something explosive…on the verge of unleashing ear-splitting noise.

“Seasonal Change” runs until mid-July, I believe, so be sure to check it out before then!

Takashi Iwasaki

Robomushimarinasudare

Robomushimarinasudare

Takashi Iwasaki definitely has a flair for the playful. Each piece is a kaleidoscopic explosion of all things optimistic and innocent, from vibrant colors to minimal, intimate shapes. Equally as amusing are the titles of these paintings, collages, and embroidery work, which consist of fragments of Japanese, English, other languages, and sounds.
