Interesting series of sculpture from Brooklyn artist Jaye Moon. The boxes almost look like evolved versions of those dioramas you had to make in elementary school to depict scenes from some novel you had to read for class. Except whatever scenes these are meant to reproduce are so much more cerebral. Clean, almost marble-like materials mingle with glowing elements of subdued color to make you wonder. I Could stare at these for a long time coming up with my own scenarios. See more of the artist’s box work after the jump.
Not only does Belgium produce amazing french fries but they also have some extraordinary painters like Laurent Impeduglia. Laurent’s paintings are full off alternative worlds where castles are erected for paintings, crocodiles know how to party, and dooms day is celebrated like its 1999.
Czech photographer Tereza Vlčková’s series “A Perfect Day, Elise” depicts pretty young girls floating through idealistic dreamlike landscapes.
In his project “Scrublands”, French photographer Antoine Bruy pulls down the curtain on the mysterious back-to-the-land movement and its members. His series documents the lives of several communities who isolated themselves from the civilized world and have been living in the wilderness for more than 20 years now.
In 2010, Bruy embarked on a hitchhiking journey across Europe. With no specific destination in mind he wandered from one place to another hoping to find those secluded communities of people who abandoned their modern lifestyle, freed themselves from social constraints and chose to live in the wilderness. He would spend days and weeks together with them, helping in everyday chores and taking photographs of their daily routines.
Photographer notices that despite different locations and professional backgrounds (from philosophy teachers to engineers), these communities and their members are all linked to each other through handmade buildings and agriculture-based living. Bruy has plans to continue his project next year by exploring the United States. (via featureshoot)
Benedetta Falugi only recently discovered her love for photography, but in the space of a couple years, she has taught herself how to work with film with incredible results. She prefers an unplanned approach to her work, taking long walks in the Tuscan Maremma in her native Italy and effortlessly letting shots compose themselves.
Kylie Stillman shreds, slices, and dices books to create carved works that function as sculpture, drawings, and installations.
Alex Wein is a 19 year old photographer in the BFA Photo program at Maryland College of Art. He seems to have a background in skateboarding, having already been published in mainstream skate magazines (Transworld, Thrasher, etc.), though a great deal of his work, much of which is black and white, has little to do with skating. He particularly excels at portraits.
Old discarded clothes guide Miami artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz to create works that are fueled by their “silent histories.” After they began to discover their love for using found objects in their work, they became inspired by the trashed clothes they found at a secondhand store near their home. Out of these materials, they’ve constructed bodies, nests, fabulous mounded towers of garments, and whole families of cotton people, eerily alluding to those that wore the clothes when they were new.
