Andy J. Miller successfully meshes with the likes of Starburst, Sony and the Science Council without seeming to conform to corporate styles. With a splash of handdrawn and wonderful silkscreened colors, Miller adds a bit of whimsy with each of his designs.

Susan Anderson creates terrifying photographs that document the bizarre world of child beauty pagents. Adult female beauty paraphernalia like veneers, fake nails, false eye lashes, lip gloss and pounds of make-up are applied to these little tykes, making them appear like tiny moms from middle America. They all have this extremely coached, extremely posed quality that teeters between demonic and sexual. Seeing all this beauty regime regalia applied out of context in this way sort of makes me realize how ridiculous it all is anyways…Her exhibition, if you are in Los Angeles, will be opening at Kopeikin Gallery on Saturday, October 24th.

Brendan Lott is a painter, sculptor, and exporter of services. These works (which you can see at San Francisco’s Baer Ridgway Gallery starting Oct. 17) began as an attempt to bring his practice in line with his life as a person living in 21st century America – he has no direct input into the development or manufacture of any product he consumes, other than to consume it. He finally abandoned his studio practice and began to spend his art making time collecting digital snapshots anonymously from peer-to-peer file sharing networks. Out of tens of thousands of snapshots he looks at, he selects just a few and email them to professional painters living in China. They reproduce the image in oils and send the painting back to him. (The above text was adapted from his website’s about page.) I wonder what these Chinese painters think as they’re working on these snapshots in varying degrees of gluttonous “American” fun aside from the fact that they are the extreme opposite of misty mountain ranges and philosophical poets?
