Daisuke Takakura Stages Seas Of Clones In His Maze-Like Photographs

Daisuke Takakura-photographyDaisuke Takakura-photographyDaisuke Takakura-photographyDaisuke Takakura-photography

Japanese photographer Daisuke Takakura creates a carousal of interactive humans. Double your pleasure.  Double your fun. His pieces challenge you to focus and rest your amygdala—puzzling you with more questions than answers; energizing your eyeballs to pounce in all directions. His reproduction of clones create a maze-like quest in his photography.

The duplicated self is positioned in a variety of stances; each with their own agenda. Whether a day in the office, playtime in the city, resting on dinosaurs or in a female basketball court frenzy—the multiplication of bodies in these settings create an unbalanced curiosity in trying to interpret what each person is doing. Repeating the “self” into many selves provides more than one imagination to be analyzed or identified with.

In one of his monodramatic photos, women are seen running from a building covered in scarlet red, which appears to be blood down the front of their dresses.  In the background, other women rest at the building entrance parading sea foam green umbrellas over their heads.

Maurizio Bongiovanni

Maurizio Bongiovanni’s paintings look like the effects of the past, or perhaps the future making its stamp on the present. But what makes Maurizio’s imagery even more effective is his choice of mundane subjects. Birds – sweet, chirpy, perched – suffering the effects of having fallen through refractive cracks… or their existence stretched as they fall toward some unforseen black hole?

German artist Thorsten Brinkmann “tangles with a modern-day caveman’s dreams. Unable to resist the allure of dumped urban detritus, this German artist recomposes and intervenes in the trash to scrap cycle to come up with installations, videos or photos such as portraits and still lifes.” Quote via DAMN magazine.

Lisa Hanawalt

Lisa Hanawalt just may be my new favorite artist.  She is a cartoonist and illustrator living in Brooklyn, New York.  I love how she takes the mundane and puts a grotesque spin on it.
