Jennifer Sanchez makes some nice paintings. The style might be a bit too reminiscent of Beatriz Milhazes work but still worth taking a look at.

Nicole Dextras’ Ice Typography


Nicole Dextras takes typography into the final frontier creating three-dimensional words created purled of ice with some letters being as tall as eight feet high! Im a huge Andy Goldsworthy fan so this work immediately caught my eye! My favorite aspect of the project is that the type is continually changing due to weather conditions making the sculptures change as the sun comes up and goes down.

Kinetic Ball Bearing Sculpture Imitates Ocean Tide

Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen. Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen.

Grönlund-Nisunen – Unstable Matter – 2013 from Tommi Grönlund-Petteri Nisunen on Vimeo.

Art duo Grönlund-Nisunen (Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen) have been working together since 1993. Technology, sound and light are the base materials of their work. The artists examine issues such as space and physical phenomena. Their sophisticated installations often play with the physical laws of nature and explore sound and space in a modest, low-tech manner. Originally trained as architects, their examination of urban/social space and nature still makes up a large part of their work. In addition to numerous solo and group exhibitions, they have also completed major commissions in public spaces.

In their new piece titled Unstable Matter, several thousand steel balls have been placed on a 150 x 150 cm large metal surface, which subtly tilts from one side to the other. Depending on the inclination angle, the balls begin to roll to the lower edges, continually forming changing patterns. The natural sound of the steel balls rolling back and forth creates a zen like sound of waves moving in and out of the ocean, reminding us all that life can be calm at one moment and yet shift at any given moment.

NY is light years ahead of us “west-coasters” in art. I cant really wrap my mind around where they got this picture of the Stones.

Blowin’ my mind.

Soon Agency Creates Creepy Crawly Bugs From Recycled Magazines

Soon - Paper Sculpture Soon - Paper Sculpture Soon - Paper Sculpture Soon - Paper Sculpture

To promote a new line of recycled paper, the creative ad-agency Soon made these fantastic sculptures of bugs. The bugs are inventive in form and colour, but are still recognizable as beetles, bees, dragonflies, and other species of insect. The wings are meticulously cut out to imitate the texture of real wings, but without the thin film that would allow them to fly. The sculptures really are all about texture. One that looks like it could be a fly has the texture of a fly’s eyes over the entirety of its body, and feelers that look like the filter-feeding system of a baleen whale.

It’s funny to see the “making of” video, because the bugs are as large as their creators’ hands. It’s entertaining to see the process of making the bugs. The video shows everyone at the agency sorting the papers by colour (even enlisting their children to help them), cutting the paper into different shapes or folding it like origami, and gluing it to create rather sturdy looking sculptures. It’s totally enjoyable to see such a collaborative effort to successful effect.

Soon also created flowers and other plants as a sort of habitat for the bugs. Using the habitat, they made a short film of the bugs flying around it, that is equal parts playful and funny. (Via Bizarre Beyond Belief)

Matt Phillips, Mario Wagner, Seth Curcio At Cerasoli Gallery

Cerasoli Gallery

C E R A S O L I  Gallery presents a selection of works by three artists working with collage as their medium, MATT PHILLIPS ‘Out Through The In Door’  in Gallery One, MARIO WAGNER  ‘Some Are Here And Some Are Missing’ in Gallery Two, and SETH CURCIO  ‘Beyond A Shadow’ in Gallery Three at Cerasoli. 

Utilizing a multi-faceted approach to painting, Matt Phillips’ large-scale, oil and collage on canvas artworks reference op-art, pattern painting, mosaics and textiles.  Phillips approaches his multilayered, dynamically textured, collage paintings as both object and illusion.  Prismatic, lively and rhythmic, accessible cube-grids and diamond quilt-piece patterns are viewed through transparent cracks, sketchy loops and crooked squares.  The artist’s intentional interruption of patterned space fractures his already frenetic compositions into kaleidoscopic abstractions.  Plays on shape, color and movement result in paintings that are both formal and lyrical, quirky yet familiar.  Originally from Roanoke, Virginia, Phillips received his degree in visual art and art history from Hampshire College, where he has taught as a visiting professor.

In Mario Wagner’s collage on canvas works, high contrast images of 1960s cool are layered onto large-scale vintage settings, tinted in lurid colors and populated by men in three piece suits and girls with shiny hair, clustered hands and disembodied eyes. Wagner draws from familiar Modernist techniques such as Dadaist collage and photomontage to create his paper collage and acrylic on canvas works.  Created using ‘analog’ processes with scissor, glue and acrylic, Wagner’s surreal scenes of intrigue and glamour exude an underlying false sense of nostalgia for a bygone era of an overindulged society.  Wagner, a German-born artist and illustrator, has been shown in numerous international exhibitions and his illustrations and artworks have been commissioned by Esquire, Playboy, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times Magazine.

Seth Curcio implements Xerox and laser copiers, billboard pasting, enamel paints, and screen prints — what he describes as “the accessible materials of mass commerce” — in the construction of his mid-sized collages on paper and wood.  At first glance, Curcio’s pictures resemble familiar contemporary landscapes. But, on further inspection, a perplexing multiplicity imbues Curcio’s images with hallucinogenic static.  Kaleidoscopic explosions splinter a high-rise building into a shadowy house of cards.  At other times, patterns multiply like mushrooms within celestial landscapes that mirror both the surface of the moon and the interior of the Large Hadron Collider. Disquieting and complex, Curcio’s works resemble photo-real environments shredded and then pieced together from memory, an intricate mesh which captures the claustrophobic, endlessly reconstructed nature of our contemporary culture. Curcio worked as director of Redux Contemporary Art Center and is the founder of the art blog

Rashaad Newsome At Marlborough Gallery

Rashaad Newsome’s obsessively-handmade collages in customized antique frames comprise a visual vocabulary that combines high neo-Baroque style with low pop-advertising imagery. His richly-detailed compositions form a kind of Rosetta stone for hip-hop culture. Newsome culls familiar images of luxury goods from glossy consumer magazines: sports gear, jewel-encrusted brooches, rings, watches, furs and yachts, which he then uses to create contemporary coats of arms set against meticulously-patterned backgrounds. See Newsome’s work from October 20th-December 3rd 2011 at Marblorough Gallery.
