Wagner Pinto

untitled_2

Brazilian artist Wagner Pinto produces work that feels like an explosion. Riotous color and combative line work absorbs the viewer into the rather chaotic world Pinto creates. The artist explains that his imagery is often derived from the folk art of a variety of indigenous cultures, as well as the symbolism in religious artwork.

Eric Standley’s Stained Glass Cut Paper

 

Eric Standley’s work is made out of hundreds (yes hundreds!) of sheets of paper that are laser cut with dense geometric patterns. Looking like 3D stained glass from far away, these layered images transport you to another time and place with their meditative quality. What’s most fascinating about Standley’s works are the areas where the paper floats over from one side to the other creating deep caverns with up to 3 inches of depth.  (via visual news)

Robert William Overweg’s Virtual photographs

Robert William Overweg's virtual photographs

Description of Robert William Overweg’s “Documenting Current Spaces” series:

I have been photographing virtual environments since the end of 2007.

I felt a need to document these worlds because I see them as the new public spaces. I was grasped by their perfect beauty, most of the time copying our own real world. But with constant highlights of beauty. These documentary photographs evolved into a journey of research and questioning.

Is there a difference between a photograph of a simulated object and a photograph of the object taken in real life. Another interesting question, when does popular culture leave the copyright protected arena and become public domain? Aren’t captured experiences instantly the property of the viewer/capturer?

Fabian Marcaccio Creates Grotesque Sculptures With Paint

Argentinian artist Fabian Marcaccio’s sculptures are paintings come to life. During the 90s, Marcaccio began to create a series of sculptures he referred to as “paintants,” a portmanteau of “painting” and “mutant,” of which he combines digitally manipulated imagery, sculptural form, and 3D painted surfaces. From this point, he began to create work influenced “by the dynamic relationship…between elements and overcrowdings that attract and string one another, link up and get activated in time and space.” His sculptures are at once stable as physical entities and unstable as representations of excess and collapse. Marcaccio uses a variety of media in his creations including oil and acrylic paints, silicon, sand, rope, plastic, wood, and aluminum. He’ll also create color-saturated brushstrokes with white or colorless silicon and stick them onto his sculptures.
