Pawel Althamer

r02 Polish artist Pawel Althamer explores the fragility of the body through his sculptures, videos, and performances.  His latest installment is called the Brondo People in which he portrays his rendition of Auguste Rodin’s The Burghers of Calais (circa 1889).  His life sized sculptures represent himself and his family members.  Althamer constructed Brondo People from hair, straw, intestine, and cloth-visceral materials. He is currently showing at the Gwangju Biennale.

A Day In Decay: Italian Decay!

IMG_4386

If you noticed that I haven’t been blogging much it’s because I spent the last 2 weeks on vacation in Italy. Wifi was not always available so instead of blogging I spent my days snapping photos of various things of interest in a country that has some of the most amazing art and historical sites on earth. I’m still going through all the photos but  in the meantime here’s a small collection of textures, surfaces, and dilapidated walls, doors and buildings from Rome, Florence, Tuscany, and Venice.

Alain Delorme

totems03 Looking at French photographer Alain Delorme’s Totems is almost surreal.  It is so hard to believe that a single person can manage to carry all of these formations in such large quantities by themselves and only a bike.  It is almost unbelievable.  Photoshop or not, the atmosphere in which this is happening in  comparison to  the rest of the world is art in itself.

Tisch Abelow

TischAbelow

I met Tisch Abelow a couple months back, and whenever I’m around her I can’t help but feel inspired by her levelheaded, simple and straightforward attitude. I also continually seem to find myself in a state of deep transfixion, staring deeply into the center of her colorfully precise and exacting work. Tisch can draw and paint with the best, has collaborated with a ton of great artists, and has traveled all over this great country of ours. I recently caught up with this wonderfully talented lady and asked her about making art, living life and eating lunch in the big city and beyond.

The artist’s canvas is not just where the brush meets the surface. It is also a window into the artist’s mind. When viewing Lari Pittman’s work, the flashes of bright color and chaotic landscape of wild, yet calculated brush strokes, tantalize your eyes. You’re looking through the window of a genius. It always amazes me how people conceptualize abstract works such as this. Truly remarkable.
