Jason Martin’s Sleek Hair

I love Jason Martin’s abstracted hair portraits. Ah, shiny, sleek, long hair, shines like an angel….

Look, This is in Fashion!

'Look, This is in Fashion!'

I’m pretty obsessed with Yasumasa Morimura’s surrealist, hallucinogenic photography. Half acid trip, half anime, pure eccentricity. Macabre hilarity, grand hallucinations. And witty titles that complement the imagery in strange and abstract ways.

Jim Wright’s out there painting and sculpture present an alternate American universe of hypercolor shag, talking animals and rainbows. More fantastical lands after the jump!

 

Elizabeth Peyton’s Long Lost Sister?

We received an artist submission today from En Hong, a Korean artist currently living & working in NYC. I was kind of  blown back by her cosmic soul sister double take to Elizabeth Peyton. 

What do you guys think- too similar, or sincere homage? More Peyton/Hong images below. I don’t know, I might fall on the uncanny doppelganger side of things.

 

B/D Apparel Spring/Summer 2009 Lookbook

Beautiful/Decay recently created a lookbook for our Spring/Summer 09 seasons. The concept behind the shoot juxtaposes evocative objects & optical affects with our apparel, to complement the shirts in abstract ways. Still life images of disco balls, prismatic rings, shag carpets and balloons contrast the light, color and texture of the shirt graphics. See our apparel line come to life in new and unexpected ways! Photography by Luke Stettner.

….the art & fashion of getting caught in a dangle, featuring works by Kime Buzelli and designers Show Pony. I love Kime’s girly-sketch watercolor drawings, they look like magnified classroom love note doodles. Opening this Friday at Gallery Space. Should be fun!

"Guitar Backstabs"

The Midwest, motorcycles, cowboy boots, blue jeans, football—imagery associated with classic Americana—kicks, charges, rodeos and bedazzles its way through Grant Barnhart’s works. Bipolar homages/parodies on the goold old stuff that makes up our national iconography and ideaology, Barnhart’s works are a feast of star spangled satire and sincere adoration.
