CalArts Opening Tonight: Zach Kellogg

My friend at Zachary Kellogg at CalArts is having an opening tonight. It looks really great- whoever in the area should go check it out. I’m probably going to attempt the 357875445 mile treacherous drive as well.

Zachary Kellogg’s practice revolves around an ever changing fantasy typically using motifs involving fictitious relationships, masculine symbolgy, queer aesthetics, love/ obsession, and sadness/ hope.

Videogramo

Genetic mutation, cancerous lesions, and other bio abnormalities taking shape in gif illustrations by Spanish group Videogramo. Kind of has, like, a whole Discovery Museum kind of feeling. Some of the gifs take a bit to load, but they’re definitely worth the wait.

Elizabeth Peyton’s Long Lost Sister?

Left, En Hong, Right, Elizabeth Peyton

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.

Ivo van der Bent, “Think of Me” series

I really like how the isolation of the object and their illumination by the camera give the plants human characteristics- those not getting any love. The ones in our office are slowly resembling these :[

Visit the Ivo van der Bent’s to see more of his work.

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.
