I’m a big fan of Gif animations in general but Tamar Levine has stepped it up with her cinemagraphs series fusing fashion photography with subtle and classy animations. Usually gif animations are going a mile a minute but by slowing down the animation Tamar has created a unique and powerful way of using our favorite photoshop trick.
Owen Gildersleeve’s cut paper illustrations must take a million razor blades and lots of patience to create. From book covers to ads Owen swings his blade at cut paper with no fear creating ultra detailed imagery for you to feast your eyes on. The only question is whether his business cards are also hand cut one at a time. Now that would be intense!
Check out artist Mark Whalen aka KillPixie’s magical worlds, exploring communication, sexuality, and ritual, littered with masked patterned people, mythical animals, and an eerie landscape all their own. His pieces incorporate mixed media ranging from paint to pen and ink to newer works with resin. He’s recently collaborated with musicians The Grates on their album Secret Rituals which seems to be a beautiful fit for them both.
I stumbled across the work of Brian Guidry not so long ago. It was a quite pleasant experience as I am a fan of gorgeous geometric abstractions, shapely surfaces, elegant finishes, and lovely colors. See more after the jump.
I’ve been looking at abstracting the human figure in my own work lately so it was a nice surprise to find the work of Gillian Lambert in my inbox. Gillian’s self portraits contort, bend, twist, and pull her face in every which way creating surprising, grotesque, and beautifully awkward images for us to enjoy!
Llobet & Pons installations and site interventions include a basketball hoop too small to fit a basket, creating a collective sculpture by collecting a single strand of hair from gallery goers, and creating geometric shapes out of broomsticks and floormats.
Christophe Gilbert is a photography magician if not a full on Sorcerer. From sewing lips onto little kids to creating evening gowns with buckets of paint there isn’t much Christophe can’t pull off without a camera and a little help from our friend the computer.
