ALEXANDER ESTERS

It’s always a good thing when a painter reaches into the toolbox and pulls out an unexpected medium or technique to mix into their bag of tricks. Such is the case with German painter Alexander Esters who uses linocuts to create the flat textured effects that pop up here and there in his paintings. This simple use of linocuts adds an unfamiliar depth to his painting technique that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Chris Bors’ Hardcore Confrontation Of Violence

Paintings by Chris Bors.

“My recent paintings, which appropriate logos from hardcore punk bands, are meticulously hand painted to resemble silkscreen prints. I often incorporate drips of color that activate the surface and create a jarring contrast, which also references stain paintings of the 1950s and 60s. To compose the paintings, I combine images from various sources including vintage magazines, children’s activity books, websites, and my own drawings. The juxtaposition of these elements resembles the compositions of and mimics the tactics used in political messaging. The work also plays on the confrontation of violence and solidarity as expressed in a music genre that has roots based on a struggle for social justice.”

Eko Nugroho

Working with thick dark outlines, Eko Nugroho‘s graphic technique and imagery reflect Indonesia’s media-rich and politically charged environment. The artist cites Malaysian cartoonist Lat, TV series from the 1980s such as Megaloman and wayang kulit (shadow puppets) as early influences. His part man-part machine characters are often accompanied by bizarre and ironic statements in speech bubbles or t-shirt slogans. At times, they can be menacing, displaying the potential for violence – wielding sharp objects in their hands, or with weapons as limbs. In others, they come across as scientific experiments gone wrong –a la B-grade films – where humans mutate into alien-like creatures, sprouting plastic flowers from their orifices, crouching on all fours with test tubes and strange objects growing from different parts of their bodies. Imbued with macabre humour and satire, Nugroho’s comic inspired work may come across as seemingly straightforward – often a central figure standing against a simple background, presented as a series of simple scenes from a larger narrative – while the artist’s inimitable pating tlecek style of fusing and juxtaposing a wide range of visual elements (and languages), lends his work a certain layer of absurdity.

This is such a bizarre mash up of acts that I couldn’t resist posting it.  Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy, and Andrew W.K. have risen from the dead to throw a raging dance party in a morgue. The mortician has left for the night, the limbs are fresh and there’s formaldehyde on ice.
