Saturno Butto’s dark visions of blood, sex, and bondage.
I’m usually not a big fan of any type of art involving currency but these folded money pieces by Dan Tague get a pass for being playful and and working in abstraction into the mix in an interesting way.
I’m completely blown away by these photographs by Maciek Jasik. They look like a gradient filled world where we all can fly through the air as long as we’re naked.
Amazingly detailed smoke drawings by Diane Victor.
It’s not everyday that we post an artist who works with yarn but Jo Hamilton’s crochet portraits are really interesting. I’m really happy that Jo decided to not over finish these and left them without a background and with the yarn hanging down. Sort of looks like paint drips and adds another dimension to the work that you don’t see often in crochet.
I’m loving these wood collage paintings by Richard Pearse. Some great textures and color combinations throughout his entire body of work.
Thanks to all the artists who submitted work to our Future Perfect call for submissions. We had well over 250 submissions for every single state in the US varying in medium from kinetic installations to drawings. It’s going to be extremely difficult to select only 70 artists from all the amazing submissions. In the next week we will be contacting artists who have made it into the book as well as announcing the grand winner who will get their very own exclusive interview in Beautiful/Decay Book: 6. Thanks to our sponsor Toyota Prius Projects for working with us to make the Future Perfect book happen and to promote and support new and emerging artists!
