Ryan Everson’s Text Based Installations Of Loss And Absence

EversonInstallation EversonInstallation8 EversonInstallation6

Ryan Everson’s installations speak to longing and loss and the desire for movement and displacement. There is something hopeful and comic about some of his work, accompanied by a tinge of despair as it addresses boundaries of what is and what could be. His work feels perpetually on the cusp of some sort of change or movement, of travel to another place, whether that be physical, emotional, or spiritual. Everson’s work embodies something of memory, though we can’t say of what, but that it definitely exudes a nostalgia for absent events or places. “My most recent work comes from abstract emotional states stirred up from specific self-reflective moments. These moment arise as I become more aware of myself in the present and my inability to control the future.”

Danish artist Rose Eken’s miniature drum kits and guitars are tiny monuments to rock and roll. With over a 100 drum kits and 100 guitars made out of cardboard and arranged in neat grids, these miniature objects are delicately made by hand showing Eken’s fascination, adoration, and passion both for the music and for the people who make it. Like a true music junky Rose Eken has created the ultimate shrine to rock music with replicas of every rock legends instrument from Jimi Hendrix’s guitar to John Bonham’s drum kit.

Sam Moyer

In a recent attempt to find contemporary artists making fresh, black and white imagery, I fortunately stumbled upon Sam Moyer‘s, washed out, subtle abstractions. These images, composed of bleach and ink, are soft and elegant and fair in scale. I want one. Many more after the jump!
