Dan Bradica’s Lansdcapes Altered With Paper And Lights

Dan Bradica lives and works in Chicago. Using extremely basic materials (paper and fluorescent lights) he obscures, highlights, and examines the world around him. An image of stacked cardboard boxes in a field of barren trees becomes a metaphor for the consequences of deforestation. In other work pieces of bright paper take form of apparitions and playfully haunt the scene. These simple alterations reinvigorate the landscape and simultaneously comment on waste, excess, and consumption.

B/D Flickr Creative Pic Pool: Tom Hudson

On the last day of 2009 we thought we’d pick yet another dedicated B/D Flickr Creative Pic Pool members work to post on the blog. This time we bring you Tom Hudson’s hyperspectrum colored collages displayed on his Flickr page full of tasty illustrations, collages, and other eye candy. Tom is 1/4 of a collective called the ‘Nous Vous’, who create everything from drawings to noise performances. That’s quite the spectrum if you ask me.

Remember to join the B/D Flickr Creative Pic Pool as we are always looking for new ways to promote our readers & members! Here’s to an awesome new year filled with tons of visual stimuli!

Andrea Mary Marshall’s Toxic Women

 

Through a series of provocative self-portraits rendered as paintings, photographs, and film, Andrea Mary Marshall examines the intersection of identity, female sexuality, and consumer culture in the context of the “ideal woman.”

“A Woman is a beast. She is as lovely as she is repulsive. She is one part demon and one part goddess…one part slave, one part muse…one part child and one part mother…these contradictions are what make a woman so intoxicating.” – Andrea Mary Marshall

Toxic Women is a narrative collection of work that looks at the implications of trying to live up to the cultural figment of the “ideal woman”. Through identity play that borders on performance, Marshall reinvents herself as highly developed characters meticulously crafted through the art of fashion, makeup, wigs, and props. For her series of “Vague Covers”, Marshall depicts the “toxic woman” as a dichotomy, born out of a pursuit of the ideal, simultaneously adored and rejected by society. There is the addict, the temptress, the woman with no boundaries, the self-saboteur, the perfectionist and the fame whore—archetypical toxic women Marshall has both encountered and embodied. Beginning with the “Vague Covers”, and carried out through the entire collection, the work explores the space where feelings for this toxic woman turn from infatuation to disgust, from attraction to repulsion.
“We all have our demons. We can’t move into the light unless we’re willing to look at our darkness.” – Andrea Mary Marshall

Christopher Norris’ Vibrant And Grotesque Drawings

Christopher Norris is Steak Mtn. His fascination with horror films is immediately evident as a heavy sense of dread and decay courses through his designs. His newest body of work employs a limited color palette and extremely confident line work on vintage book pages. Skulls, dripping flowers, reapers, and grotesque faces are rendered with vibrancy to create a series that explores the afterlife with exuberant clarity.
