Mark Stockton’s commentary on celebrity culture.
Attention world I have found my new favorite photographer! London based photographer Ben Rayner is the coolest. I love his work. His photographs possess a sort of child-like wonder and enthusiasm to them. Check out some more of his work after the jump!
What do birds hallucinate about when they go on a drug berry induced psychological trip? I don’t know if any of this would be accurate, but I hope to rainbow laser toting, owl-man monster-bird it is. A gorgeous music video of Hermanos Inglesos’s “Wanderland,” designed by Kristof Luyckx and Michèle Vanparys.
Colorful acrylic paintings by artist Ryan Pierce – surreal, possibly telling of an impending doom, the absence of man leaves animals to wander through our remains. I wonder, can you eat birds like this?
I’ve been an avid documentary film watcher for many years now. My favorite documentaries are obscure stories about everyday people doing extraordinary things. I always get excited to share these documentaries with friends but before I know it I forget the title. So in the spirit of archiving my findings I am creating a new category dedicated strictly to documentaries. Below is one of my most recent finds.
A Man Named Pearl tells the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar, whose unlikely journey to national prominence began with a bigoted remark.
Oxford, England based artist Jenny Saville, is frightening in how she is so good in what she does. Her paintings always make me feel uncomfortable, and in that way, seduced as well. She is mostly known for her paintings of large, fleshy women that quite often appear similar to landscapes or a huge slab of meat. It’s a desire of mine to one day see her work in person. Amir has, and apparently photographic records of her work does not do it justice.
