Kirk Demarais

Kirk covers them all, from National Lampoon’s Vacation to There Will Be Blood.

Stumbled onto some delightfully curious paintings by Cassandra Simon last night that have the smoothly detailed qualities of a perfectly executed relief print. Robust with color, these images seem to be a mix of mystery and folklore.

Cal Lane

Today I remember just how much I enjoy Cal Lane’s work. Visually stunning, her sculptures are easily accessible yet deeply intellectual, but hey, that’s what you get when you work with a plasma cutter and 55 gallon oil drums. Amazing that she’s able to coax such ethereal work out of such crude material. Taking the reigns from the Smith’s and Serra’s of the sculpture world is no easy task, but Lane is seemingly running as fast as she can.

Kate MccGwire

Kate MccGwire‘s latest sculptures are exquisitely crafted and detailed. They have this almost mythical aura about them as the feathers are seen spread in many areas of the installation space. Titled, “Sluice”, the work consists of pigeon feathers, felt, glue and polystyrene that are cautiously put together forming many pigeon-like forms.

As the artist states, “I gather, collate, re-use, layer, peel, burn, reveal, locate, question, duplicate, play and photograph”.

Storybook worlds unfold in the photographs of Stephanie Wiegner, a German born artist currently getting her MFA in Storytelling at Konstfack University College of Art, Craft and Design in Stockholm, Sweden. Extremely creative portraits, along with dreamy landscapes, Stephanie finds a way to keep her muted palate extremely saturated, and it has me captivated!

Mazzarella Thomas

8_mazzarella5lowMazzarella Thomas is a Belgian artist whose paintings look like screen shots of wacky video games, where the point of the game might be getting your characters to break down the door to a fancy building with people swimming on the roof, or to take a nap and then play super nintendo.  I don’t know if this is a stoner or a dork aesthetic, but I like it either way.  He describes his work as having a message “social and human.”
