Matthias van Arkel

DSCN2126_2

One of my favorite artists, Matthias van Arkel, (who will be appearing in Book 3, btw) recently designed some amazing fabrics and a site-specific painting for the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Matthias usually creates these spaghetti-esque, rubbery abstract-expressionist sculptural-paintings. This aesthetic translates nicely to these flat works…has a very contemporary-Swedish clean feel, beautiful!

Grycja Erde

goat contraptionI am truly a sucker for anything of an absurd nature.  I also love the classic style of old propaganda posters.  So when I stumbled upon the collages of Miss Grycja Erde, twas a happy moment.  The nature of Grycja’s collages made me assume she was an older artist, since they have a mature approach to absurbity (in my opinion).  But I was surprised to find out she’s just 23!  Enjoy these tasty treats coming to you from Ukraine.

William Lamson

Picture 11

I know. Anyone can string banana-hostages to a perfectly innocent tree; the gesture is simple enough, but who ever would’ve thought to do this? The playfulness, exuberance and creativity in William Lamson’s little “interventions” make you reconsider space, how we interact with it, and how we see the world. I just imagine attempting to climb to the top of these slippery slapstick yellow rungs only to discover what I’m dealing with is not a playstructure tree but…bananas. And if that’s not enough, check out the vid after the jump that shows the artist in a Hell-raiser style mask, made entirely of bananas with dynamite wicks on the end. One by one he lights them, causing them to explode in Chiquita’s ultimate pimple/fruit popping extravaganza.

Sarada Rauch

PileDemonHeads

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a good pile of demon heads, and that is exactly what Sarada Rauch delivers.  The work is light hearted, but there’s definitely a moral allegory thing happening too.  Emily Noelle Lambert told me to check out Sarada’s work.
