Guy Denning of Bristol, UK has been putting out emotive, figurative paintings for almost two decades. He works mostly in oil, perhaps the perfect medium for working with the human figure due to its unique luminous qualities, and he takes the guesswork out of using art as a mirror for the human condition by directly rendering our anguish and strife in muted, stylized tones. He also maintains a pretty awesome daily drawing blog.
Vered Sivan‘s installations combine sculpture and performance but they don’t seem alive — they seem lived in. Her use of synthetic thread and dental floss reads as dusty cobweb thriving in the space. Her crocheted steel wool has been cast on the floor. Sivan’s pieces exist in a state where objects don’t change but surfaces do.
Dutch-born Lauren Hillebrandt‘s photographs objects and reframes them in other-worldy, digitally-made landscapes. Her latest series, Flat Landscapes, presents various ordinary objects surrounded by bright panels of color to subvert the norms of still-life art, and recently won Foam Magazine‘s still life contest.
More photography from this series and some of her earlier work is shown below.

Minale-Maeda’sInside Out Furniture series is designed specifically to be downloadable in order to reduce enviornmental issues related to transport, costs of stockkeeping, and explore collaborative design and distribution. The concept was to turn pieces inside out to make construction simple, while brackets and structural details become distinctive and attractive features. The connections are 3D printed to suit various sizes of wood, and the crafting is minimal requiring only cutting to length and drilling. Another interesting project by the collaborative duo is the Lego Buffet, a buffet table gorgeously made entirely out of you guessed it, Legos! See more images after the jump!
