Brendan Austin

In a series entitled “Paper Mountains,” NY-based photographer Brendan Austin shoots crumbled paper in an abstracted, decontextualized way as to create the appearance of mountains. It reminds me of when I was a child and I would look at the natural folds, hills, and canyons created by my bedspread and imagine they were gigantic landscapes.

James Sutton

 

While this video could be mistaken for an orgy of Beautiful/Decay shirts, it’s actually awesomely thought up by James Sutton, 22 year old photographer. His work is beautifully colorful and ghetto-fabulous without being overly so. In his world, everything has a smooth finish and a sense of style. Jam is “inspired by pop culture, art & music, his work is a collision of colour and culture with a subtle hint of his love for surrealism.”

Black And White Illustrations Of Imaginary Environments Transformed Into Sculptures

Artist and illustrator Kevin LCK seems to stick to illustrating, even when crafting work in three dimensions.  Like his illustrative work, the sculptures are in spare black and white and made using paper. His Object series consists of a number of electronic appliances, such as a computer, microwave oven, and a television set.  Inside each appliance is a carefully crafted home setting.  Explaining the thought behind the series Kevin says:

 

“I seeked to detach the audience from the real world temporarily, provide them with a space to rethink and reconsider the way we behave and think about the relationship between ourselves, objects and environment with technology in a more conscious way.”

Colin Henderson, a designer and illustrator, enjoys captivating the viewer through the use of bold coloring, shapes, and patterns. I was happy to sense that not only does he seem to absorb inspiration through classic video games, mainstream media (do I see Flava Flav in one of them? I think so!) and street culture, but the inspiration from various ethnic art.

Adela Andea’s Otherworldly Light Installations

Adela Andea’s light installations and sculptures seem otherworldly.  They almost feel organic, reminiscent of vivid underwater scenes, but the lights, wires and other tech that make them seem more like alien landscapes.  The Romanian-born, Texas-based artist seeks to explore the line between actuality and virtual reality.  Weaving LED and CCL lights with pulsing electrical components Andea creates installations that transport a viewer to a place where art becomes experience, and that experience is all encompassing.

Andea likes to think of her work as incorporating many layers of truth.  She embraces the possibility that there isn’t one reality, and her work strives to capture that notion visually. With the fast and overwhelming advancement of technology, Andea’s installations represent the dialogue between people and new technologies.  The desire for a viewer to have a personal experience with her work, but to also think about the way that information can be manipulated to form one’s notion of reality is the driving force behind her complex installations.

In her artist statement Andea writes: “The numerous transitions in my life made me think about the enormous capability of people to adapt to situations and even more, search for the new possibilities of personal development through inquisitive experiences.”  A witness to the Romanian Revolution in 1989, and eventually forced to immigrate to the United States in 1999, Andea is certainly qualified to make work that comments on the experience of experiences.

Her work is currently on view at the Texas Biennale, now through November 9th at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas.
