Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums

 

 

I have to start out by saying that A Perfect Circle’s “Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums”  is one of my favorite songs. This animation is an excellent interpretation of the trance the song puts the listener into as well as the false sense of security and comfort we often get from the media.

North Portland #4

 

Matthew Scott graduated with a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art. In landscape and in portraiture, his camera sheds light on the “paradoxical tensions existing just under the surface of everyday life.” He overlaps two Americas–the urban and the rural–as they compete in his photographs. He effortlessly gives the viewer “Yin and Yang, light and dark, compassion and sarcasm”–a struggle of dualities.

 

His clients include (but certainly are not limited to) Anticon, GQ, World Golf Tour, and XLR8R Magazine.

NoLoveLost

garethrice

NoLoveLost, aka Gareth Rice, is an artist, designer, and illustrator based out of New Zealand. His work has been used and featured in print advertising, editorial design, and campaigns for K-Swiss, Oakley, and Redken. His graphics are energetic, and I like how his illustrations organically meld with the photographs they are incorporated with.  The above artwork is part of a new series intended to “give human based subjects a flawed final resolve, rather than a perfect one, which is so common in our industry.” Whether his illustrations are for a shoe company or for himself, you’ll find yourself doing a double take, just to grasp everything going on.

Interiority (2007), 35.75 x 47.75

Artist Brian Cooper‘s paintings explore the idea of landscape and space through abstract representation. His work features surreal situations that appear to explode from their ‘real’ counterparts. Check out the way he uses depth by contrasting the ” tension between flat and far” to create eerie and fantastical environments. I love how, as the viewer, I get sucked into the padded rooms and sharp angles of his creative, dali-esque compositions. The structures and strange shapes become more enticing through Cooper’s use of rich colors. There’s a cool tangible quality to the visual textures of the abstract surfaces, especially in Bulge, posted after the jump.

PJ Richardson from Laundrymat: KDU X Diesel “Only The Brave”

Laundrymat

 

We have images of PJ Richardson‘s submission for the Diesel x Keystone Design Union (KDU) “Only The Brave” Exhibition, which opened on April 30th in NYC. I love how he juxtaposes gentle greens, salmon pinks, and loud reds with equally vibrant, downright playful monsters and type. All of these visual elements make this piece particularly mesmerizing!
