I’m not usually a big fan of photorealism but these paintings by Lee Price are unreal!

San Francisco based artist, Kevin E. Taylor, creates incredible and symbolic paintings that also have a certain sense of humor. I am pretty excited about some of his religiously themed paintings. There is a strong idea of creation vs. construction going on in some of his recent work.

It was a relaxing way to start my day off with some of Rachel Wolfe’s photography. Her work reminds me of some of my favorite Sigur Rós songs, it starts off quiet, serene, but loud in the vibrations of either storytelling or sense of nostalgia. Some of my favorites of her work are Liminal Metanoia and Eleven Winter.

Colin Henderson, a designer and illustrator, enjoys captivating the viewer through the use of bold coloring, shapes, and patterns. I was happy to sense that not only does he seem to absorb inspiration through classic video games, mainstream media (do I see Flava Flav in one of them? I think so!) and street culture, but the inspiration from various ethnic art.

Don’t you hate it when this happens to your desk. Too hard to get any work done with all the commotion. By Alex Varanese.

Waste Land

I’m dying to see Waste Land, a new documentary featuring photographer Vik Muniz. Shot over three years, Muniz goes to his native brazil to visit the worlds largest garbage dump to collaborate with the local trash pickers on a massive photo project. A few friends have seen this at film festivals and strongly recommended it. Who knows, maybe i’ll get lucky and get a press copy in the mail (hint, hint, hint). Keep tabs on the movies website for release dates. Looks like a good one.

Phyllis Galembo’s Witch Doctors

Phyllis Galembo‘s photos of witch doctors, medicine men, and shamans are creepy, beautiful, and haunting all at once.

You may recognize photographer Jill Greenberg‘s series of upset (understatement for some…) children. If you haven’t seen her work before, you may notice the off-putting style through her contradicting use of detail microscopically real vs. the sense of waxy – plastic feel. This is because Jill Greenberg is that same photographer behind the advertisements of the TV show Dexter. Check out her Fine Art photography, the ideas that inspire her, and the solution she comes to for translating the concepts are a real treat.
