Paul Sloan

Paul Sloan‘s simple marker drawings seem all the more intimate as a result of minimalism – as if they’d been ripped from the pages of Sloan’s personal sketchbook. They have an unfettered ease about them that suggests they went from conception to paper in a matter of moments, preserving Sloan’s original ideas without editing or alteration.

Put on your Photobooth face forward

Mark Pernice

Artist Mark Pernice has turned our ultimate Photobooth fantasy into reality. Using Apple’s Photo Booth application as inspiration, the idea was to take the 2D image that it manipulated and create a tangible face in a real environment, then in turn bring it back into a 2D image. Using Photo Booth on the mask itself may create some sort of paradoxical shift where the artist ceases to exist.

Grady Gordon’s Ghoulish Monotype Prints

 

 

Oakland-based artist Grady Gordon produces ghoulish black and white monotype prints. The knowledge that each image is unique contributes to a  sense that the figures depicted are real. That at any moment they could leave the paper and enter your nightmares. Until this year, Gordon only depicted heads in his work; the full figures definitely amplify the gruesome vibe. But the heads definitely have their appeal as well- leering faces that move in and out of swirling blacks. Gordon is having a solo show in Denver in October. Some of these works will be on view then.

The best way to stay current with the world of Grady Gordon is to follow the dude on instagram @joaquindead. Don’t blame me if you never sleep again though. More full figures and previews of the Denver show after the jump.

Charlie White

 

Charlie White’s work has always intrigued me. Since 1999 he has used a variety of methods to create eerie photographs that look like stills taken out of a horror movie.

 

This new body of work is a surprising departure from the previous work but still has the eerie feel that White’s work is known for. I couldn’t find much online about the series but the titles say a lot. The series is called ” Teen and Transgender Comparative Study.”
