LIA HALLLORAN’s Photographic Line Drawings Created By Skateboarding With Light


Lia Halloran’s work blurs the boundaries of photography and become self-portraits and drawings as well as records of performances. Light is used to form the drawing line while Halloran skateboards at night through different venues. The resulting images are each a trajectory of the artist’s movements over time. The photographs pair urban environments with lines of light which behave as physical objects or break apart into flurries of abstraction.

The images also have ghost-like connotations, showing action with no trace of a figure and leaving an after-image of where but not of whom. They become memory as well as exaggerations of architecture combined with landscape. The light pollution of the Los Angeles night sky is often heightened by the long exposure time of the camera.

Heart-warming Photographs Of Superman Falling, Failing And Chasing His Dreams

BD-OMJ6_1BD-OMJ5_1BD-OMJ2_1BD-OMJ8_1

Superman meets our ordinary daily laborious life. Ole Marius Joergensen depicts in his pictures the super hero trying to fly and making his dreams come true. An unusual situation here, as we witness Superman failing. We watch the struggle and identify with the character.

The series called ‘No. Superhero’ is inspired by comics and Norwegian values. The fantasy world created by Ole Marius Joergensen is grounded and disciplined. Halfway between a painting and a photography, the color scheme is colorful yet soft. The artist chooses to represent the super hero with different kinds of men and keeps the red and blue costume as well as the cape. He is climbing a high ladder, landing on a tree, falling headfirst on the snow or appearing lost in an empty field.

Failing and holding on until success is reached is part of human life. The unusual appearance of Superman within each scenes makes the introspection interesting. Are we dreaming too much and that’s why we are failing? Or is it necessary to fall and learn in order to progress and attain our goals? Ole Marius Joergensen seems to project his hopes and aspirations. Bringing reality to anyone who doubts of its capacity to make dreams come true. Creating a space for errors and multiple attempts appears necessary according to the artist, apparently even Superheroes fail from time to time.

A Day In Decay: Die Antwoord Run Wild In LA

This past Sunday I headed out to the Music Box to see Die Antwoord. By my previous posts you know that I’ve been into the group’s videos, but I wondered if they held up on a stage with a few thousand fans. It’s too soon to tell if the group is just the flavor of the month or a powerhouse that will hold the attention spans of youth for years to come, but I will say that I enjoyed every minute of the show from beginning to end. Not only did they sound great but these guys are simply bonkers. With only a simple backdrop and crazy costumes that look like homemade Halloween costumes they managed to tear up the stage.  Here’s a few photos and thoughts from the show….

Artist’s Digitally Enhanced Photographs Look Like Expressionist Paintings

fukephotography7 fukephotography8 fukephotography12 fukephotography2
Japanese art photographer FUKE P-San transforms his photographs into emotional experiences by applying expressive color palettes. In FUKE’s photographs, color and light becomes the subject of the work, as opposed to an objective characteristic. FUKE photographs the world around him, then uses digital color and light effects to give the photograph a painterly aesthetic, one that mirrors the beauty he sees and feels when experiencing the scenery he encounters. He says, “There is so much beauty in our everyday life that goes unseen simple because we develop a different sense of how we value beauty often influenced by our every day life routine.”
FUKE’s color palette and composition evokes the work of artists like Edvard Munch, Egon Schiele, Vincent van Gogh, and Claude Monet, and registers an emotionality not frequently seen in photographic work; this is largely due to his work’s painterly qualities. He hopes his images enhance viewers’ perceptions of the world, and influences the way they perceive beauty.
“Open new windows in your mind and heart, notice and catch the beauty of ordinary small things, watch them well and find a way to make this beauty even bigger. Find the mystery in everything; feel it and this will open your heart to new worlds that you previously thought they never existed. Art can give us Happiness, and help us communicate with ourselves and others to a higher level.” (via cross connect and life treasure collector)

JK Keller’s Self Obssessed

Designer/Artist/Self-Obssessor JK Keller really knows how to make use of his tools. Witness his curious expertise as JK wills the computer to create these amazing works of art. With a conceptual work ethic that borders on mischief, Keller humorously exposes to us the inherent beauty within the hidden structures in our lives.

Liesbet Bussche Accesorizes the City with Oversized Jewelry Street Art

Liesbet Bussche is doing some really creative, involved work in the street right now. I really like her “Urban Jewellery” campaign, which integrates over sized pieces of jewelry into public, urban space. Stone roadblocks become cufflinks. Pendants are placed upon chain barriers to create “necklaces”. The project exposes the city’s characteristics as highly individual, asserting that it is appropriate to accessorize public space in the same manner we would accessorize ourselves. It reminds us that urban areas have just as much personality as a living, breathing entity.
