Ted Gahl is making some beautifully paired down paintings. They are amazingly suggestive for the minuscule amount of information they present. The painting above feels, to me, like portraits in profile, but is it really? I’ve never seen a face like these pink hieroglyphs. It’s interesting what a painting can make you think you see, and with just a few clues. Gahl is in a bunch of upcoming shows: The Power Of Selection 3, curated by Ryan Travis Christian at Western Exhibitions, in Chicago; 2020 at the Above Second Gallery, in Hong Kong; and Color Me Bad(d): Joshua Abelow, Ted Gahl, and Hugh Scott Douglas at Nudashank in Baltimore.
French photographer, Thomas Mailaender, exudes so much humor into his documentations. I genuinely enjoyed looking through his gallery, through all the amazingly funny, and weird images. It would be amazing to put these images up on my wall as posters, or even just as postcards.

I am really enjoying Canadian artist Chris Kuzma’s illustrations. His work is peculiar, slightly off-putting and embodies bright colors and weirdness!
Shary Boyle‘s ceramic sculptures combine the delicate with the grotesque.
Playful, sophisticated graphic design by Bergen. I love it, especially the use of color.
