Dooom’s portfolio of twisting and turning hands and geometric shapes.
Justin Angelos’ collage works mix vintage paper with bold colored magazine cutouts to surreal images dealing with Life, death, loss and rebirth.
Jake and Dinos Chapman have been some of my favorite artists to emerge from the YBA’s. With each show they seem to step up the level of gore, shock, and grotesque imagery mixed in with historical and cultural themes. For the past year, Jake and Dinos have been working in separate studios to produce a series of works in isolation from each other. Only in the staging of their current show at Whitecube will each become aware of what the other has done. Unlike Gilbert & George, for whom Jake and Dinos worked at times as studio assistants, their practice is not one of ‘singular duality’. They have always discussed, debated, argued and on occasion fought over creative and cultural ideas, but in this exhibition they will scrutinise and confront the whole idea of creative collaboration. Hear the brothers discuss the process for creating this show, get a walk through of the show, and hear them talk smack about fellow YBA artist Tracy Emin after the jump.
Andreas Kocks’ work might look like boiling tar splattered on gallery walls but it is in fact meticulously cut paper covered with layers of graphite.
The French really do design the heck out of home goods! Moustache is another French design firm designing some of the most exciting new chairs and home items around. And like any new artist they reference the important works that came before them enough to seem familiar, while adding their own touch to make it feel brand new. And using a Versaille’s-like setting for their campaign? Pretty brilliant.
Indonesian pixel pusher Agan Harahap’s photographs that juxtapose images of super heroes into vintage wartime historical photographs are down right amazing! These images are so well made that I’m starting to really believe that batman was a commie!
