London based illustrator Andrew Clark brings together the photorealistic, the abstract, and the geometric. His work seems to hint at the future, while interweaving what feels like folklore into his intricate illustrations.
Clark has created work for magazines, album covers, posters, and corporate identity.
The Company is pleased to announce the exhibition of “Jesse Reding Fleming’s Methods of Invisibility: Shades of Gray (2001-2009).” In addition to an installation in The Company’s main exhibition space, the video for this project (shot while driving from California to New York in 2001, edited in 2009) will make its world premiere in The Company’s video garage. Jesse states, “Eight years later, returning to California and for my first show in LA, it seemed to be a suitable time to reopen it for completion.”
Taking inspiration from a variety of sources including, but not limited to fairy tales, Renaissance portraiture, and botanical illustration, Susan Jamison paints women adorned with vibrant pink embroidery patterns. In Jamison’s words, the animals and plants are carefully chosen for their symbolic meanings and lend the female figures a “contemporary, feminist inspired Snow White character.”
Led by graphic designer and illustrator Jerome Castro, Hellofreaks is a graphic design studio based in Paris, France. I’m loving these twisted, almost grotesque illustrations juxtaposed with color palettes that basically put rainbows to shame.
Tom Sachs sculpts truly elaborate masterpieces. In 2001, he recreated Le Corbusier’s 1952 Unité d’Habitation using only foamcore and a glue gun, and constructed a McDonald’s solely from plywood, glue, and assorted kitchen appliances. His attention to detail is mind-blowing. So intense.
Jon Huck‘s “Breakfast” series exhibits portraits of people along with exactly what they ate/drank that morning. Some of these people bear a striking resemblance to their food! I’m fond of these parallels, especially the one between the bald man and his hard-boiled egg.
