Jenny Saville

0253b69d

Oxford, England based artist Jenny Saville, is frightening in how she is so good in what she does. Her paintings always make me feel uncomfortable, and in that way, seduced as well. She is mostly known for her paintings of large, fleshy women that quite often appear similar to landscapes or a huge slab of meat. It’s a desire of mine to one day see her work in person. Amir has, and apparently photographic records of her work does not do it justice.

SBAGLIATO’S Street Art Trompe- L’oeil Doors And Windows Into Nowhere

Italian street art group SBAGLIATO (meaning “wrong” in Italian) covers, buildings, walls, and the occasional rock with trompe- l’oeil  windows and doorways that beg viewers to walk and pear into places that we’re not supposed to look at.  Their execution is so precise that from a short distance it’s difficult to tell their work apart from a real window or door. So next time you’re late for a meeting and running towards a door make sure it’s not the newest piece by SBAGLIATO or you’re sure to be greeted with a sore forehead and a few chipped teeth. (via)

Jack Greer – Digital Ashtray

I recently had the pleasure of talking with multi-talented artist Jack Greer about his new website/project Digital Ashtray, photography, LA, New York, and sandwiches… You know an interview is going good when Bay Cities comes up as a topic of conversation. Look after the jump for an interesting Q & A with an interesting man.

Cute Or Crude? Lisa Yuskavage’s Oil Paintings Are Cheeky And A Bit Controversial

Lisa Yuskavge - oil paintings Lisa Yuskavge - oil paintings Lisa Yuskavge - oil paintingsLisa Yuskavge - oil paintings

Painting something like Lolita crossed with David Lynch crossed with a crude porn site, the works of Lisa Yuskavage seem to have people divided. Her luscious images of nude women and girls have been described as both vulgar and earnest, affectionate and alienating. She has developed a unique style that blends Renaissance techniques, landscapes, still lifes, cartoon-like figures, porn and religious iconography that both delights and disturbs viewers. Yuskavage’s world is full of innocent yet flirtatious vixens parading around in their undies and getting into mischief in meadows or apartments. Her characters seem a bit narcissistic, and self loving, and in some cases maybe even self loathing. Yet they are definitely interesting and magnetic; a commentary on the complexities of the modern woman and her sexuality.

Drawing on her own childhood experiences, Yuskavage explains her encounters with, and understandings of sexiness and power:

As a little girl, in Catholic school, they were the first feminists I met. It seems counterintuitive, but these women rejected the normal system of life. The ones that taught me were quite smart. When I came to my senses, I realized it would actually be awful for me to live that particular life. I guess I liked the idea of a calling, the intensity of it. (Source)

Works from the last 25 years of Yuskavage’s career is now on show at The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Be sure to visit and make up your own mind if you love or loathe her style and content. Her solo show Lisa Yuskavage: The Brood is on display from September 12 to December 13, 2015 at David Zwirner Gallery in NYC.

Ross Lovegrove’s Liquidkristal Glass Looks Like Flowing Water



Designer Ross Lovegrove teamed up with glass manufacturer Lasvit to create the new architectural glass panel. The panels take inspiration from natural forms. Using a high precision heat transfer process the crystal glass flows and optically shifts that which is behind it. People and objects look as if they are standing behind a waterfall. Colors warp and fracture throughout the surface. Organic shapes created by nature are processed into dynamic architecture.
