Max Maslansky is a tricky fellow who seems to believe in longshots. His images caress a romantic past, the voyeuristic present, and a violent future. Each image seems to shake with exerted candor, while holding your hand and telling you things will be okay.
Cyriak Harris is an artist living in Brighton. He makes splendid videos that remind me of the sensation of sugar on my tongue. I feel the urge to push and push, but each video tells me to sit down and understand that “everything is going to be okay.”
Imp Kerr & Associates is an insightful fiend living in New York City. She collects large amounts of intriguing bits on The New Shelton Wet/Dry and seems to enjoy grinding modern culture into a fine paste that she applies any where she feels like. Her work can be purchased through the Spacer:One show right now.

Helle Mardahl holds nothing back in her work both in subject and materials. Her background in fashion is evident, but her collections are not made for any runway. Start with her show A Royal Orgy Of Consumption which was on display at WAS gallery in Copenhagen, August 2008. Keep exploring; there’s a world of intricacies and complexities wanting to be seen.
The people of the United States alone toss out millions of plastic bottles every hour, and in a year, enough plastic film to shrink wrap Texas (which would be both a hilarious and horrifying feat.) Everyone knows it’s important to recycle, but it’s often hard to realize the consequences of forgetting about one little bottle; maybe we should consider not buying this stuff in the first place. (I drink out of the tap all the time, heck, I’d drink out of the hose.) Without getting on a soapbox, the following artists have made powerful statements about the ways in which we waste…. by re-using materials that would otherwise be thrown away, and removing paper and plastics completely from the recycling loop…. as even the act of recycling uses massive amounts of energy.
André Tempel‘s alien sculptures look like they belong in the lair of an evil mastermind bent on destroying the planet. His works look like colorful WWII underwater mines, or rotors fitted with revolving saw blades. I feel like Frankenstein’s creature is about to emerge from this orange capsule.
KOKOFREAKBEAN is a maker living in San Antonio, Texas. KOKOFREAKBEAN creates videos of fractured childhoods and psychotic emotions, wrapped around a bouncy ball that won’t quit. If you push the play button, there won’t be many options left. It’s do or die, and this artist likes Kevorkian.
