Edwin Deen’s Rainbow made with A Garden Sprinkler

Dutch artist Edwin Deen works in a wide array of materials and situations from sculpture to found object groupings but his rainbow sprinklers caught our eye immediately. Consisting of a simple garden sprinkler that can be found at your local hardware store, some paint, and a little ingenuity Deen transforms entire rooms in minutes with the help of some water. It would be interesting to see this done with food coloring and in an outdoor setting but for now we’ll enjoy these colorful installations and wait for Deen’s next project. More works by him after the jump! (via)

Abbey McCulloch’s Evocative Paintings of the Female Figure

 

Really nice work from Australian artist Abbey McCulloch. There’s almost a fashion illustration vibe with these paintings, which feature female figures staring at you from eyes weighed down with heavy makeup. And so often when an artist does cite fashion illustration as an influence, what they really mean is straight up fashion illustration placed in a gallery setting. That wouldn’t be the case with McCulloch’s work, whether she drew direct inspiration from the realm of fashion or not. Her palette selection is so good. And the expressions on her subjects’ faces, captured with  just a few brushstrokes, are uncommonly evocative. Click past the jump to see more. (via)

Ceramicist Lauren Gallaspy Creates Fantastical Sculptures Confronting Vulnerable Imbalance

1777690_orig3797080_orig 3159690_orig 1957379_orig

Artist Lauren Gallaspy creates unique and dynamic ceramic sculptures that play with notions of fantasy and duality. Her work, beautiful, adventurous, and full of a sense of wonder, invokes magical moments of nonsensical, yet somehow perfected, chaos. Her intention lies in finding balance in seemingly irrational binaries. She explains, “the things that I love and the things that I fear refuse to balance out. They scrap like cats, cloak and conceal like kudzu, terrify and delight, like a large, shaky lake or a dog swimming hard towards a floating ball.” The artist uses this tension to create creative and inventive ceramic sculptures, which are not only experimental by nature, but break boundaries of traditionalist methods of pottery. Experiencing Gallaspy’s work is like an investigation. Each color, each angle, each new treatment of material is expressive and fascinating. Her work screams out for a quiet attention, being open ended yet intimate. Her work emphasizes the complexity of humanity, the ups and downs of just simply being. She explains;

“My work is about that imbalance: the vulnerability of living things and the sometimes violent, sometimes pleasurable, almost always complex consequences that occur when bodies and objects in the world come into contact with one another. I use ornamentation, obsessive mark-making, and decorative imagery as a kind of devotional or transformational act, a way to render interior spaces and intense psychological experiences physically.”

Dan Golden’s Photo Realistic Paper Clip Paintings

Dan Golden lives and works in Boston, MA. He is currently working on a series of watercolor paintings of paperclips manipulated by other people. The result is a an amusing photo realistic body of work that celebrates miniature monuments and the individuals who created them. In his own words: “At one point or another, practically everyone has either consciously or not turned this ubiquitous everyday object into something other than what it was intended for. Is it possible that these miniature ‘sculptures’ somehow carry with it the distinct personality of it’s creator? In many cases, I believe they do. Therefore, I feel as if these paintings are in a sense, portraits of the individuals doing the manipulating.” (via)

Alex Gibbs’ Comic Bleakness

Alex Gibbs is an English artist whose paintings and drawings are equal parts despairing and funny. I love his mix of patterns, graphic contours, and all-over narratives–sex on a couch in a party room with a man huddled and crying; dancing by yourself in a room filled with big floral prints; a (presumably) dead couple holding hands in airplane seats surrounded by puzzle-like pieces of their airplane. His work doesn’t make light of human tragedy per-se, it just gives it a little perspective by flattening us into the shapes and patterns of the world we live in, relishing in the absurdity of our perceptions. ( via )
