Teo “Moneyless” Pirisi’s Mysterious Geometric Installations

Teo "Moneyless" Pirisi Teo "Moneyless" Pirisi Teo "Moneyless" Pirisi

Born from a complicated mixture of graffiti, typographic abstraction and installation art, the work of Italian street artist Teo “Moneyless” Pirisi differs slightly from what you would expect to find in an outdoor space. His mathematical, geometric sketches are quiet, contemplative—an appropriate precursor to his finished installations. What started as lettering on walls steadily shifted toward pure abstraction, where Pirisi says “my efforts then dropped the symbolic meaning of the letter.”

Pirisi ditched the paint, the letters and the walls for a series of carefully choreographed suspended rope installations. He has traveled the world creating multiple iterations of these works, which are often found suspended in wild or forgotten spaces. Pirisi’s attention to perspective and material are seamless, and his placement is usually quite surprising—providing moments of wonder for curious passerby.

From the artist: “My shapes are reduced to the minimum, at the same time they carry some kind of an intense tension, an invisible movement; most of my patterns hide multiple visions and different perspectives. I think my art now speaks through geometry.”

Magdalena Bors Creates And Captures Domestic Life Run Amuck In Her Elaborately Staged Photographs

Magdalena Bors- Photograph Magdalena Bors- Photograph Magdalena Bors- Photograph Magdalena Bors- Photograph

Photographer Magdalena Bors, who currently works out of Australia, has spent much of her artistic career exploring the creation of small worlds. Often toying with domestic situations that have catapulted nearly out of control, her work toys with domestic life through a silly exaggeration of common routines; crafting to the point of knitting an entire rooms worth of goods, thumb tacks that have grown into their own ant hills on a desk. Thoughtful yet comical, she pokes fun at routine while also creating a rather transfixing sculpture out of it, pointing out an underlying beauty and the inherent art in nearly everything. Her work is child-like yet sophisticated, and reads much like a scene that has lost control through its own charisma and momentum.

“The characters in my latest series of images The Seventh Day have been overtaken by a seemingly uncontrollable compulsion to create complex environments from materials found in the domestic realm. The processes undertaken to create the landscapes are extremely labour intensive and involve repetitive, painstaking tasks. Food scraps and remnants of materials seen in the images allude to the passing of time and the physicality of the processes involved. The resulting scenes resemble familiar, sometimes iconic natural landscapes.” (Excerpt from Source)

Monica Cook’s Weird And Wonderful Drawings Explore The Revolting Side Of Humanity

Brooklyn artist Monica Cook is a woman of many talents, with multiple personalities and identities. She loves to explore the revolting, disgusting side of being human that we often try to hide. The range of her art practice is broad, and includes grotesque hairy sculptures, to highly detailed bizarre animations, meticulous drawings of naked women in surreal settings and beautifully rich oil paintings of slippery and slimy intimate scenes. Cook says all that she produces is in some way a representation of her, a kind of self portrait, or an attempt to digest the things about her that she doesn’t understand.

“When I’m painting, it’s more about my relationship with the object than it is about me. It’s hard for me to separate myself from the experience. It could be a fish or an octopus. I handle it until it becomes unfamiliar to me so I can see it in a new way. People might want to read into those paintings but for me, it’s just about finding magic in the mundane and exploring further.” (Source)

Her drawings are combinations of miniature versions of herself acting out strange activities on large body/landscapes. Her work usually explores the range of human emotions, including anything from girls on laughing gas in the middle of a doctor’s examination or celebrating some personal triumph while riding a balloon. Cook is able to exaggerate the awkwardness of being human, and how gross and disgusting it can be to live with flesh and bones.

“I can be extremely awkward, yes. I can be really shy, too. I put myself in a position where I am really uncomfortable interacting with something, and work with it until I become comfortable with it, and capture that private moment of surrender or acceptance. It’s all about private performance, and amplifying the absurdity of a situation – and making myself laugh.” (Source) (Via Juxtapoz)

The Black Glass Sculptures Of Elliott Walker Recall Alien-Like Geodes With Colorful Hidden Centers

walaker glass sculpturewalaker glass sculpturewalaker glass sculpturewalaker glass sculpture
Sometimes less is more. By adding just a tiny bit of contrast artist Elliott Walker turns all black glass sculptures into striking objects with a flash of color. His motifs usually consist of bottles and bowls paired with a vegetable or fruit sliced to show a striking hue. Walker uses the color to create a pulsating heartbeat effect. Besides the obvious aesthetic value there’s hidden metaphor which can be open to interpretation. By highlighting the various skins of the produce portrayed Walker brings the potential health benefits of these foods to light. Not only is it the part of the vegetable or fruit which pigment is made from but also contains the flavenol quercetin a blood pressure lowering chemical found in onion skin. These give the objects not only a pretty nature but also represents important health benefits.
At times, the black glass Walker uses give the sculptures an excavated post-apocalyptic look which adds to the drama of his subject matter. Normally glass is produced to have an ultra pristine aesthetic which is broken away from here. It takes on more of an alien feel  perhaps a table set for a Martian dinner party. (via fubiz)

Star Wars Imperial Forces Invade And Pillage Thomas Kinkade Paintings

Jeff Bennett - Digital Painting Jeff Bennett - Digital Painting Jeff Bennett - Digital Painting

It’s really easy to hate on Thomas Kinkade. His landscape paintings, which boasts themselves as “paintings of light,” are dull, wooden, and nearly all the same. Wholly uninteresting, Kinkade’s paintings beg to have a little pizzaz added to them. Luckily, artist Jeff Bennett has solved this problem. He’s added the Star Wars Imperial Forces to Kinkade’s work. Storm Troopers, Star Destroyers, and more invade the candle-lit houses, babbling brooks, and flower gardens. Houses are set on fire and landscaping is trampled. And, throughout it all, you are cheering for the historically “bad guys.”

Bennett’s keen Photoshop skills allow him to seamlessly integrate the two worlds, making them believable and thus very entertaining.  In a way, this series mimics the typical good vs. evil story. The exception is that who we perceive as good and evil is turned on its head. You’d think that tranquil Thomas Kinkade paintings would be harmless. But think again. Kinkade, with his lowest common denominator work, overpriced and mass produced chachkies, and greed (in 2006, his company was convicted of defrauding two Virginia gallery owners), is really the bad guy in this scenario. The Imperial Forces are helping destroy banality. (Via Adweek).
