Jason Thielke’s Laser-Cut Figures Contain Dissecting Lines Like Blueprints Of The Body

The dissecting cuts and lines shooting across the work of artist Jason Thielke create incredible images of figures full of expression. His incredible, illustrative art is made by laser cutting wood panels, with acrylic paint and ink to add color and highlight details. Many of his pieces have so many lines etched into the work; it is difficult to tell the negative space from the positive. Thielke makes great use of negative space in his etchings, forming intricate and dynamic shape and composition. Each figure contains so many marks streaking across their body, adding shapes and patterns that form constellations within them.

Thielke’s lines seem organic, swirling around the figures hair and face, forming expression. However, the etched lines are also highly geometric and architectural, building a blue print for the body. Such drastic, harsh angles create a dramatic atmosphere with striking faces filled with piercing eyes. These intersecting lines express,

“conflict between one’s ability to implement self control and compulsion to manipulate and constantly self-gratify.”

Thielke’s fragmented bodies cut through you with a powerful emotion as they keep pulling you deep under their spell, inviting you to examine every cut in the composition. The artist does not only uses the technique of laser etching to create his figures, but has also inked his cut wood panels like a woodblock and then used them to make prints. Thielke has exhibited all across the U.S. from Boston to San Francisco. His work can be found at David B. Smith Gallery in Denver, Colorado, where Thielke currently lives.

 Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is a model, blogger, and apparently a musician from Tokyo Japan. I have no idea what she’s singing but I’m praying to the Hello Kitty gods that the lyrics are as completely crazy and bizarre as this video is.Each frame of the video is full of candy coated everything, flying slices of toast, giant tongues, and all sorts of other things that are just to weird to explain. Watch the full video in all it’s Harajuku, kawaii, and decora madness after the jump.

Ryan Jacob Smith’s Pulsating Paintings

Ryan Jacob Smith lives and works in Portland, Oregon. With a limited color palette he explores the living and the dead, the growing and the decaying. His subjects seem to pulse as vein like matter spreads across them. Are his skulls rotting or forming? Are his branching vein structures an extension of life or an ever advancing impairment? Questions like this allow the viewer to reflect on creation and destruction.
