Daphne Arthur explores religious expression and cultural identity through her mixed media design. It is in Arthur’s work where the two dimensional meets the three dimensional. You can catch a look at her work at New York City’s RARE Gallery exhibit lasting from October 14th through November 11th.
I am really enjoying Marcel van Eeden’s work. I am particularly amused by his A Cutlet Vauderville Show in which he depicts two pieces of meat performing song. Marcel van Eeden was born in 1956 in The Hague, Netherlands.
Using only white pencil and black paper, Bette Burgoyne creates nature inspired illustrations in the form of whispy white lines. Although dark and mysterious, her work is really beautiful.
I’m the last person to be a huge fan of airbrushed shirts, but Kerry D’Noit’s shirts have something to them. I’d gladly rock a cyclops pizza shirt any day!
Swiss photographer Matthieu Lavanchy likes to create his own subject matter. Everything from still lives, to installations, collaborations and costumes so that a room just can’t be a room anymore, but becomes an area of performance.
There is something in Spanish photographer Yosigo’s (aka: Jose Javier Serrano) work that allows him to present beauty within emptiness. His minimalistic style presents itself even within the subject matter. He focuses on ordinary, everyday surroundings that are extremely sparsely populated. I also enjoyed his collection of found photo IDs titled, Aurkitutako Erretratuak.
Jed Turner, a sculptor based over in Eugene Oregon, uses steel and found objects to create an aggressive body of work. Though Jed was originally trained in drawing/ painting, he finds his passion in sculpture. Influenced by the science of dichotomies, Jed enjoys working with contradictions usually between nature and machinery. Jed’s work will be featured at Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ for their show “Oh My Skull!” If you are in the area, make sure to stop by.
Macabre artist Jonathan Monaghan creates digital sculptures, prints, and animations that definitely puts us in a sense of discomfort. His clean, almost sterile use of style in detail, color, and light is both beautiful and extremely uncomfortable.
