Swedish artist Leif Holmstrand’s oeuvre is filled with crocheted and knitted sculptures, terrifying performances, washing line installations and dangling babies. He also writes excellent poetry- an artist and writer who puts Malmo on the Sweden Maps and in the very near future on the world map!
Good morning, dear readers. Remember that one nightmare you had when Book 2 was sold out online? Now you can wake up to a bright new day, because we restocked our online store. So feel free to head on over, and if you feel like it, purchase a copy of Book 2: What A Mess. Please keep in mind – only 1500 copies were printed… so grab one while it’s still available! We love you.
If you haven’t seen Pieter Hugo’s work before, get ready to be completely blown away. Unaltered, straightforward, and as raw as it gets, these images send shivers down my spine, and give me hope that I can still be captivated/inspired/amazed/appalled by a photograph.
Expressive use of color, text, and perspective from NY artist Benjamin Degen. He also sports an extremely cool homepage on his website – simple but catchy and effective. Folksy yet refined, his work reminds me a little bit of Seurat. Find more at Guild & Greyshkul Gallery.
Oh, the journeys you can go in books! Brian Dettmer shows no respect for Webster as he cuts this dictionary… into something far more awesome. But wait there’s more! Someone better yell timber, because here’s a forest’s worth of paper art from many great artists.
Here at B/D, we love it when you send us your work! Well this particular submission has the office divided – we can’t decide whether or not we love or hate these vibrant drawings from Kara Rane – I guess that’s what happens when your work is full of horses, little kids, sunsets, and sailboats. What do you think loyal B/D follower? Are you attracted to serene and harmonious imagery like this, or does cliched beauty disgust you…Give us your 2 cents!
