Phil Hale, a London based illustrator, knows what to do. His illustrations are incredibly rich with disjointed movement, explosive energy, and raw masculinity that which all combines into an overwhelming visit to drama itself.

Vancouver resident Dina Goldstein’s “Fallen Princess” series makes us both laugh, cringe and wonder if Disney princesses were thrown into today, what their lives would be like (minus that Enchanted movie…).

The Unaltered Photography of Matt Perrin

Matt Perrin believes in the magic of classic photography.  Perrin decidedly does not use Photoshop or manipulate his photographs once the shutter clicks.  Rather, he fully utilizes the simple features of his camera and experimental lighting to create his dreamy images.  His photographs glow like cosmic abstractions.  Perrin is intentionally ambiguous as to the exact nature of his subject matter.  Rather, he encourages a more open reading similar to abstract painting.  He says of his process:

” Any object seen, in any photograph, was physically in front of the lens when the shutter opened and closed. It’s the twists and turns that have occurred between those points that have brought you here today.”

Best Of 2011: Miru Kim’s Naked Cities

I’m loving this series of photographs by Miru Kim wandering various cities naked. I especially like the photos after the jump where she’s in various train tunnels and abandoned buildings. Talk about Beautiful Decay!

Battle of the Brush in Bryant Park

Bryant Park, located about a block East of Times Square in Manhattan, has been home to a several fun contemporary/public art projects recently.  Right now, they’re hosting the “Battle of the Brush.”  Which happens to include alumni of the Beautiful/Decay Studio Visits: Alison Blickle and Tom Sanford.   It’s based around the idea of a civil war reenactment, except instead of the North and South, it’s between abstraction and figuration.  Bryant Park was a campground for soldiers during the Civil War, so that’s where the whole Civil War thing comes in.  Personally, I just like the paintings…  It’s coming down this Wednesday, Feb 2nd, so get over there asap.   The show was curated by Corporate Art Solutions.

Troy Moth

 

Troy Moth was born in a remote tree-planting camp on the west coast of Canada and spent the first few years of life in a tent guarded by large dogs. He loved the wild and abundant nature he grew up immersed in, but eventually the call to adventure became too much and he moved, first across Canada to the big city (Toronto), then across the world to India, to pursue a career in photography.

Troy has worked for numerous commercial and editorial clients, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, GQ and many others. But he’s never forgotten his roots, so with a career in fashion now behind him, he’s focusing instead on his art, and living, once again, deep in a forest on the west coast of Canada.
