Austrailian Sam Songailo makes crazy technical paintings that have my brain in a serious frenzy. Florescent patterns ooze off the canvas like a Gee’s Bend quilt on mushrooms. Check out Iain Dawson Gallery for more.

I love Emily Noelle Lambert’s palette- it’s like Wayne Thiebaud’s pastel pastilles and tiers of cupcake glazes applied with the loose, graceful grime and grit of German Expressionist paint handling. Sweet but not overly so. If you are in NYC, her show opens at Priska Juschka Fine Art tomorrow night, Nov. 5th.

The University of New Mexico’s digital collections host an extensive archive of vintage cutaway illustrations of nuclear reactors from around the world. These illustrations first appeared in Nuclear Engineering International as inserts in the magazine from the 1950s to the 1990s, and were often on display in nuclear engineers’ offices.  Upon noticing the degradation of the illustrations over time, one engineer named Ron Knief decided to pursue the digitization of all 105 diagrams published by the magazine. The resolution of these images is incredibly sharp, and you can get a closer, more detailed look at the illustrations by visiting UNM’s archive, where you’ll also find many more colorful and thoughtfully designed posters that shed light on and satisfy some curiosity about these controversial energy reservoirs.

Henrik Franklin’s Book Sculptures Are Small Enough To Fit Between Two Fingers

Galleries come in all sizes, even in a really, really tiny scale. Swedish graphic designer and illustrator Henrik Franklin has created an installation that’s something you’d be more likely to see in a dollhouse than anywhere else. But, instead of a bedroom, it’s located at the Odenplan underground station at Gallery 1:10 in Stockholm, Sweden. The group exhibition is titled If You Tolerate This – an exhibition about resistance. Franklin’s piece features a library of colorful books, all small enough that you can hold between two fingers.

In a show centered around worries of the future and the holding on to hope, Franklin’s tiny books represent how important literature is in our development. It teaches us the lessons of the past so we won’t be doomed to repeat them; prose also encourages and inspires us to dream and to think differently.

If You Tolerate This – an exhibition about resistance is on view until December 6.

Elisabeth Lecourt’s Dresses Made Out Of Antique Maps

Elisabeth Lecourt is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. Her newest body of work is entitled Les robes geographiques in which delicate dresses are constructed out of antique maps. In her own words the series acts as “a portrait of people through their clothes, like a blue-print of their soul.” Her bio explains the importance of the female figure in her art: “Sensitivity and vulnerability are the main subjects in the work of the artist…the feminine figure is seen like the spine of her house, like an essential component of this particular world.” (via)

Sebastian Lester

Here’s one for all you typography nerds out there: Londoner graphic designer Sebastian Lester is a typographer, doing freelance work for clients such as GQ, Dell, and the New York Times. He seems to specialize in this sort of formal loopy script stuff, which I find quite impressive. If you like his work, you can buy high quality prints of some of his designs here, though it’d probably help to be British if you want to buy them, cause the exchange rate from dollars to pounds isn’t so good.

Chris Gilmour’s Amazingly Realistic Cardboard Sculptures

There certainly is a “wow” factor when you come across the work of Chris Gilmour. Not only are his representational sculptures flawless in scale and form but they are made out of cheap cardboard that you would usually find in dumpsters. Gilmour takes this everyday material and gives it a new life creating gorgeously sculpted objects that transcend the material that they are made with bewilder our senses. Read a short interview with the artist after the jump.
