Shauna Born’s Quiet Glance

I’m usually into very loud and boisturous paintings but there is something extremely rewarding in the quiet and subtle portraits by Shauna Born.  Each modestly sized painting features a sitter looking blankly into the viewer. The sitters don’t do much in the paintings but the piercing looks in their eyes warn you of a hurricane of emotions that is to come.

She Is Frank mixes bizarre scenarios and bold retro sets to create captivating fashion photography. A personal favorite is the image above. Who doesn’t like to see beautiful images of models eating Chinese food with such vigor?

Dan Attoe’s in Berlin

Dan Attoe has a new show up in Berlin at Peres Projects.  The places in Attoe’s new work are psychologically pregnant.  Some feature groups of people doing a focused activity together, like camping or going to a dirt track demolition derby.  There’s enough detail that we can put ourselves into the places, and hear the moon crickets, or smell the b.o., beer, and car exhaust mixing into a sort of glorious perfume.  Many artists are concerned with myth making, and that’s because we live on the Earth, but in a world.  A world isn’t a physical thing – it’s a story we tell ourselves to make sense of our experience.  Attoe’s newest work conjures places in order to get at the heart of that human story, and he’s weaving a spell of world-making as much as image-making here.  All the images in this post are courtesy of Peres Projects.  Dan’s show is up until November 5th.

faye mullen’s I’m An Artist And I Weigh

Does an artist’s, like a pro-wrestler’s, value depend on his or her physical mass? Not necessarily; however, Faye Mullen’s i am an artist and i weigh physically contextualizes the worth of the artist in a quantified way with the intention to resurface the question of self worth and the value of the artist’s creative output.
