Marie Koetje‘s specialty appears to be finding beauty in chaos. Her paintings feature jumbled messes of trash and vegetation, and jagged landscapes. Her often dark scenes focus on spots of bright color, illuminated signs, and water reflecting light.

Phillip Toledano

phillip toledano-00007
Phillip Toledano is a photographer in every sense of the word, with an oeuvre that speaks incredible amounts about his interest and character. After our post recently about Nick Minton, I realized we hadn’t posted Toledano’s beautiful series titled ‘Days with My Father‘, which is also an incredible book. The project follows Toledano’s time spent with his father, and is chronicled with heart-warming/breaking words that bring the whole series to life. Please, take a moment out of your day to experience this series.

Eunjeong Yoo

ej_all_about_sexSeoul native Eunjeong Yoo is an illustrator who now lives and works in New York City. In addition to Eunjeong’s strong conceptual approach, the quality I admire most in her work is her use of color; its placement has a haphazard feel and her palette choices both emphasize the narratives and instill a sense of in-the-moment movement.

Sisters of the Black Moon Star in Black Mountain

I’m proud to say my witchy sisters & Texan friends, Sisters of the Black Moon, have recently “moonlighted” (in a black sense, of course) as the starry-eyed starring leading ladies in Black Mountain’s new music video, Old Fangs. Like a Nightshade-induced hallucination from a Belladonna dilated third eye, these sultry sirens seduce and induce cosmic visions and beyond.

And, if you love their sartorial sorcery, be sure to check out their website- they hawk their magick wares on an epic eBay store, The talented Miss Alecia Marcum of the coven, as if she isn’t fantastic enough already, also does styling work.

The following are B/D’s picks for today’s awesome architecture. Sometimes it seems architects don’t get enough recognition for their work as artists, but they are truly masters of sculpture and design (and not only that… they know calculus). Read on to drool over the art works that you (wish you could) live in.

Tenko

overflowing origin

Swiss artist Tenko‘s work seems to represent a twisting, flawed humanity that we try to forget. Looking at his work I’m very conscious of the fact that my supposedly higher thoughts and feelings all rely on a system of organs, pumps, and fluids to exist and no amount of perfume is going hide the fact that we are simply beasts of flesh and bone. Maybe it’s all those perfectly modeled legs or even the grotesque facial expressions but I feel like I’m definitely gonna have to exfoliate tonight.
