Alex Ziv And Mario Ayala At FFDG

SF based Alex Ziv and Mario Ayala recently opened a two man exhibition entitled Going Nowhere at Fecal Face Dot Gallery (FFDG) in SF. From the press release: “Alex Ziv’s works, composed of pen and ink on paper, explore and help to define Ziv’s definition of “Americana” through the visual iconography and language of motorcycle subculture. Through exploring topics of contemporary and historical Americana through a background knowledge of mainstream and subversive symbology found in subcultures, Ziv’s work attempts to enhance and highlight topics of turbulence. Mario Ayala’s work is a further exploration of his lived experiences intertwined with the ideals of the West Coast ethos containing its ritualistic chachkies, cultural luxuries, and the anxieties due to taking mind altering substances while faced with the prioritized decision of guns or butta. Ayala creates pictorial hyperboles from friend/ family experiences to explore the trudges of economic class, multi cultural sacrosanct, and the day to day hustle for egalitarianism.” The show in on view through May 4th, 2013.

Hu Ke

Love these bizarre sculptures by Chinese artist Hu Ke.I couldn’t find much about what they are about or how they are made online but maybe one of you smart Cult Of Decay members will put on your investigator cap on and report back to cult headquarters with your findings.

Marcello Velho’s Graphic Kingdom

I’m really enjoying the bit mapped illustrations and designs of Marcello Velho A.K.A Kingdom. His stacked illustrations look like unexplored levels of 1980’s video games that one would play while taking massive amounts of acid.

Pawel Althamer

r02 Polish artist Pawel Althamer explores the fragility of the body through his sculptures, videos, and performances.  His latest installment is called the Brondo People in which he portrays his rendition of Auguste Rodin’s The Burghers of Calais (circa 1889).  His life sized sculptures represent himself and his family members.  Althamer constructed Brondo People from hair, straw, intestine, and cloth-visceral materials. He is currently showing at the Gwangju Biennale.

Getting Lost On The Internet With “I’m Google”

The project I’m Google from artist Dina Kelberman is strangely and hypnotically familiar. You’ve likely searched one topic on Wikipedia or Google that set off a long chain of searches each slightly related to the one preceding it.  Hours later you’re nowhere near you began.  In a way I’m Google is a visual representation of this in the form of a tumblog.  Countless seemingly mundane photographs slowly transform in color, composition, content.  However, slight changes over time build large ones; balloons slowly become crater lakes.  It’s a familiar journey, and I’m Google is a fascinating visualization of it.  [via]

Benjamin Rawson’s Hyper Tropical Room Dissections

Benjamin Rawson lives and works in the UK. His gouache paintings and drawings are often presented as house diagrams where op-art patterns, tropical foliage, and basketballs run wild. Other works feature densly layered vegetation filled to the brim with every color in the rainbow. It is as if the artist is presenting post modern psychedelic versions of Mouse Trap for a culture obsessed with sports and illusions of paradise.
