Eske Rex’s Drawing Machine

Its difficult to say whether the drawings or the machine is the work of art here.  Artist Eske Rex created the Drawing Machine which in turn produces ink drawings.  Two pendulums are attached to an arm which is equipped with a ball point pen.  Once the pendulums are set in motion the arms record the contraption’s movement by creating a singular work of art.  Beyond each piece’s pleasing aesthetic is something just as intriguing.  In a way, each drawing documents a very specific movement and time.

Jason Horowitz’s Larger-Than-Life Drag Queens

Picture 21

No, I don’t just admire Jason Horowitz’s photos of renowned New York drag queen, Shi-Queeta Lee for her strikingly similar name to my own. These up close-n-personal, hyper-realistic shots elegantly straddle the realms of glamour and repulsion, real and ideal, portraiture and abstraction. His show opens at Curator’s Office February 20th.

Lee Bul’s Infinite Installations Will Fracture Your Reflection Into A Thousand Pieces

Lee Bul - Installation

Lee Bul’s transformative installations pull you into a fractured space of infinite mirrors. The Korean artist, both well versed in illustration as well as installation and sculpture, forms complex, maze-like structures with interiors made of mirrors that reflect in all different directions, creating a disorienting effect. Bul takes seemingly small, secluded spaces and magnifies its size by making the space seem never-ending, keeping you exploring each layer of the multi-faceted structure. The highly industrial installations create such intricate depths and perspectives that allow you to fall into a place of vertigo. Each fractured mirror bounces back color and light in a way that transforms and bends the space around you into an intense kaleidoscope. Bul’s interactive artwork gives way to a fractured universe of distorted shapes and space.

The artist, being multi-talented, mixes elements of architecture in her work to design the sleek exteriors of her installations. Adding to the lustrous, reflective surfaces of the interior walls are the reflective floors of the exhibition, creating even more confusing space perception. This unique work creates a range of emotions from the anxiety caused by the ambiguity of depth, to the overwhelming awe from the beauty and sublime of the endless space around you. Each installation is a portal to another world, absorbing you in its abstracted images that include your own reflection. This unearthly theme is present in much of Bul’s work, as her illustrations often include unknown beings and aliens. Bul’s stunning mirrored labyrinths are now on view at the Museé d’Art Moderne in Saint –Eitienne in France. (via Design Boom)

Drew Conrad’s Haunting Installations Of Buildings In Disrepair

Drew Conrad- Installation 121

New York artist Drew Conrad sources materials to build these eerie and beautifully disturbing structures that carry their mood with them. Using salvaged materials to complete these haunting renditions of exteriors and interiors long since passed, he constructs a narrative of loss and despair, or even of just the forgotten. These planks of wood articulate their own meaning of history and the viewer can’t help but get lost in the mood that surrounds one of Conrad’s shows.

“Conrad’s architectural sculptures and hanging assemblages in Backwater Blues seem to be the somber ruins of a once vital place. Constructed out of raw material – distressed by hand with rust, debris, stain, and sediment – Conrad creates dwellings and remnants of domestic spaces that appear corroded by time. The fractured interiors and exteriors become sites for identity making, serving as metaphors for psychological reflection. Reoccurring themes of legends underpinned by myth and assumed cultural pairings suggest a questioning of collective memory in contemporary times.”(Excerpt from Source)

Soggy Sorry Day

Guth_Umbrella1_e1

In honor of this sorry, low down, good for-nothin yellow bellied son of a sapsucker rainy day, enjoy some found clothing umbrellas by MK Guth. Thinking about taking these out for hellstorm protection just makes me think of the smell of mold, dog, and heavy wet socks. Still, I like their bright, cheery plays on the umbrella form, that are half Mary Poppins, half fortress.

The Sexy Nudes And Almost Nudes Of Nick Farrell

Nick Farrell is a photographer with the ability to capture the essence of sex. And while he primarily shoots naked or next-to-naked girls for his personal projects, he has a diversity and range that has allowed him to work on everything from editorials with Mickey Avalon, short films for fashion brands like Han Cholo, to even the occasional shower shot of pornstar Jessie Andrews. But his real skillset is in his ability to make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable while they’re on set. That’s why there’s still this genuine quality to his nudes and his models look naturally flirtatious, rather than aggressive and overly posed. WARNING: This post contains images that are NSFW.
