Good buddy and painter extraordinaire Alison Blickle turned me onto the work of Christoph Ruckhäberle the other day and my mind was immediately blown.These paintings are completely bizarre and incredibly beautiful. Everything from the choice of color, the abstraction of the human body, and the strange vintage imagery sets it aside from work that you see on most gallery walls!
In the year 2237, after we’ve all been forced to move to the Moon, we will keep warm with these post-apocalyptic future quilts. That is, of course, assuming rumors are proven false and the moon isn’t really the Death Star. Anyway, thats my take on London based artist Roger Kelly’s work. His pieces are not just a random collection of abstract shapes, but on close inspection, fragments of buildings, rocks, and trees all stitched together to create Kelly’s overwhelming vision.
Marion Peck‘s paintings are all just a little bit twisted — and that is one of my favorite things about them. Peck has been a prolific painter these past few years, and now the art world is starting to show her some love. Her works juxtapose fluffy creatures and noble ladies with an assortment of creepy crawlers and obscene gestures. With such a mixture, there is bound to be a little something for everyone.
Jesse Harris may be the hardest working man in business of being punker than you. As both a vinyl signmaker and fine artist, Jesse is a great example of the DIY aesthetic perfected. Creating work that is both questioning yet precise, there is no doubt to Jesse’s intention- the message is the medium.
Ana Paula Caldas is a graphic designer from Brazil. We received an email from her earlier to day, but don’t know much about her. Ana’s stuff is pretty awesome though. Most of her work plays around with typography and light, and her images are rather vintage futuristic. Check it out!
