Architectural 70’s Wonder by William Hirsch

 

I absolutely love this house, designed by William Hirsch for art director John Holmes, (no, not that John Holmes!) most famous for his original cover art for “Jaws.” Their home is comprised entirely of salvaged, hodge podge reclaimed building materials, making it a sort of living, breathing, thrift store turned frankenstein-like architectural collage. Ah, the free-wheeling spirit of the 70s that kicks modernism’s dutch-minimalist-eames-clean line-stainless steel-white cube’s ass!

Dylan Rabe

Dylan Rabe is a fellow artist and friend and colleague of mine. His illustrative works contain all things one could hope to see in a painting. Executed with bold colors and painstaking attention to detail, they fuse together theatrical narratives with assemblages of eccentric subjects, symbolic props, aged furniture, and elaborate décor; he successfully fits all such things into a single painting, typically creating medium to large-scale works. Dylan derives influence from a variety of sources such as 1950’s pulp art, soap operas, science fiction and romance novels. His work is enigmatic and enchanting, and I hope to see Dylan’s work gain further recognition in the future.

TIAM (This is a Magazine)

This is a Magazine was founded in 2002 in Milan Italy by Donnachie, Simionato & Son. This project includes a compendium of award-winning work, available on the internet and in the magazine. TIAM is the 6th printed Compendium and it refers to science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick’s final novel “Valis” and the protagonist’s interaction with an extra-terrestrial pink laser beam (Obviously a great foundation for the creation of cool artwork). The combination of these pieces work together to make an elaborate pop-up book full of beautiful but strange work.

Matthew Cox Embroiders Icons On X-Rays Creating Dark Humor Mash-Ups

david_bowie_web hearthrob_7_nancy_web krishna_web matthew-cox-6

Philadelphia based artist Matthew Cox embroiders iconic characters, images and symbols on x-rays, creating moments of satire, dark comedy, and reflection. His work blends the universally known with notions of the seemingly the unknown, forming postmodern mash-ups and hinting at the absurd reality of the human condition. His work takes a chance on being highly referential using playful antics such as titles like “playboy” and “heartthrob” for works that portray faces of silly cartoon characters or ex-presidents. Cox’s work pulls his viewer in by creating fun in forging connection. But beyond the contextual discord, his work also takes on the impression of pastiche via the physical materiality of the work. While the hand craftsmanship of the stitches provokes feelings of comfort, nostalgia, and quaintness, the x-rays provide the opposing sense of sterility, coldness, and discomfort. This sort of push and pull between the ages, various levels of technologies and traditions, as well as reformatting iconographic persons, personas and ideologies, does indeed perfectly outline and reflect what it means to comprehend ones surroundings in the twenty-first century. While living within the age of the internet, where anything and everything can be within our disposal in the moment of desire, time does not seem to distinctly go forward or backward. We have been given the option to chose in which decade we’d like to exist in; we choose our music, our dress, our ideologies, our fantasies, all through a network of access to the past (and perhaps for the real techies the future), no matter how deluded it may be. But it is not just our own obsession with the internet, it is the universal obsession; it is the knowledge that our peers will understand which decade we refer to, and in that universal nod, knowledge and understanding, we are enabled to live timelessly. Matthew Cox has created a clever series of inherently postmodern works, using absurdity to reflect on modern reality. (via artfucksme)

RIP David Bowie, who was a postmodern trailblazer for us all.

Interview: Deb Sokolow

debsokolow_interview
Deb Sokolow creates a vertiginous world of invented narratives. Her large-scale, ink on paper installations are hung in a kind of methodized-madness that call to mind police investigations bulletin boards, a mad scientist’s chaotic formulas and revelations, or the bedroom of an obsessive-compulsive conspiracy-obsessed fanatic. Sokolow leads viewers into the tangled web of an information-saturated schematic, leaving viewers at once disoriented and exhilarated. Sokolow talked to us about her creative process and sent us a bunch of behind-the-scenes shots, including her “research binders” detailing subjects such as “Ghosts, Email Scams, Pigeons & Squirrels.” Full interview after the jump.
