Fiona Ackerman Faux Mess

I’m loving these faux messy paintings by Fiona Ackerman. I included the above studio shot because it’s actually hard to tell what you’re looking at if you just look at the paintings alone. I can’t tell where real shadows are, what’s collaged (there’s no collage in the work!) and what is painted with a quick stroke of the brush and what parts used a 00 brush and lots of patience!

Documentary Watch: Karakuri

 

Japan has always been on the forefront of cutting edge robotics. Its roots can be traced back 200-300 years during the Edo period when skilled craftsmen created automata (self-operating machines). Using nothing more than pulleys and weights they were able to make the Karakuri (Japanese automata) perform amazing tasks. Japans modern day robots can be traced back to the Karakuri. Today Hideki Higashino is one of the few remaining craftsmen who is determined to keep the history and tradition of Japanese Karakuri alive. Watch the full documentary after the jump!

Andrew Nigon’s Bizarre Nature

Andrew Nigon’s sculptures draw attention to the bizarre nature of our existence in which we have an insatiable drive to improve while simultaneously living within bodies that are in constant decay. Using the discarded detritus of society in chorus with brightly colored materials that are typically reserved for happier times, Andrew creates heroic yet tragic monuments devoted to a human race that is trapped in an incomplete and fractured world.
