I personally am not a fan of pipes and think they should only be used by 110 year old pirates on their very last voyage of death to the Bermuda Triangle but I have to admit that Alan Powdrill’sPipe Up series is fantastic. I just wonder if these ladies actually smoke pipes or if this is purely for our photographic pleasure.
Stuart Patience’s Ragnarok is a series of illustrations based on the writings of Norse mythology. Each drawing is taken from Ragnarok, the Norse aplcalyptic saga describing the destruction of worldly life. I also included a few delicate self portraits at the end of the post.
There’s a whole lot going on in the work of Matt Lifson. From lush landscape painting, to broad abstract brush work, to deathmetal members shooting purple beams out of their eyes, there is something for just about everyone. These paintings are wild, wacky, and inventive in just the right areas and that’s just how I like them!
If you’re in LA make sure to swing by POVevolving Gallery in Chinatown and check out the latest exhibit by Marco Zamora featuring beautifully rendered paintings and a great video installation. The show is up through july 7th.
Robbie Rowlands is a Melbourne based artist whose work explores notions of stability and vulnerability through the manipulation of objects and environments. His repetitious and precise cuts and the resulting distortions reflect the inescapable passing of time that affects everything around us. Rowlands’ works have been described as“spotlighting the history, humanity and function” of his subjects. His manipulated objects and spaces blur the boundaries between our fabricated world and the natural world.
