Jennifer Cronin

Jennifer Cronin’s narrative paintings create  an absurd mythology of the seemingly banal where anything (and sometimes nothing) can happen.

Design Watch: Scout Regalia

It’s summer time, which means it’s time for picnics, BBQs and fizzy drinks. And if you’re going to dine outside, you don’t want to pull up to any old table and chairs. You want to slide into THE picnic table and lucky for you, Scout Regalia makes it. LA-Based Scout Regalia’s products and branding are pitch-perfect design eye candy. Their garden boxes are gorgeous as well.

Michael Wolf’s Copy Artists

Michael Wolf’s photographs of Chinese copy artists is absolutely brilliant. I’ve always heard stories about how you can get anything copied in China for dirt cheap but  this series absolutely blows me away. I love the tiled alleys that the photos are taken in and the casual nature of the copycats. For instance check out the water flowing towards the painting in the above image. What if that really was the Mona Lisa? Can you imagine someone dragging it into the alley into a puddle for a quick photo op?

Matthew Brandt’s Lakes And Resevoirs

I love Matthew Brandt’s Lakes And Reservoirs series of photos. Each print is soaked in the body of water that it depicts giving each photograph a unique abstract film of color and texture. It’s like getting two photos for the price of one!

Scott Hocking’s Bad Graffiti

Scott Hocking has documented one of my favorite things, bad graffiti. Starting in 2007 scott has photographed hundreds of scribbles in and around Detroit. Maybe it’s the shakey lettering, potty mouth humor,  or the never ending typos but I rather see some bad graffiti over real graffiti any ol’ day.

Ivin Ballen’s painting’s might look like they are tossed together in a few minutes with some glue and tape but they are in fact painstakingly made using fiberglass and trump l’oeil techniques.

Design Watch: Muuto Pendant Lamp

We here at B/D think product design is an important aspect of the design and art spectrum because product designers create the objects we live with every day. Artfully designed objects can make your life easier, or in this case brighter, and look good doing it. At first glance this looks like your classic metal pendant lamp, but it’s made of rubber that you can squish! This unexpected element and the bright colors are why we love this Pendant lamp by Form Us With Love for Muuto, if you love it too, it’s available at A+R, click here.
