Kirsten Hassenfeld’s Fragile, Ethereal Paper Gems

Kirsten Hassenfeld Kirsten Hassenfeld Kirsten Hassenfeld

Massive, glowing webs of geometric gems climb the walls, successfully controlling the behavior of early afternoon light—while soaking the empty surfaces of the space with gentle washes of color. It’s only upon close inspection that the pieces reveal themselves to be painstakingly handcrafted, light-as-a-feather paper sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Kirsten Hassenfeld. She applies her sharp paper craft skill set to creating fanciful, (if not slightly frivolous) site-specific works that command presence, but in reality are quite ephemeral. A nice study of pure form, movement and spatial composition.

Andrea Berretta

Andrea Berretta’s design work is just so happy. Even the weird serpent/monster creatures look like something I would want to play charades with. His energetic, hand-drawn type gives his work an inviting atmosphere. Like, after seeing this, I’m totally ready for happy hour.

Thousands of Suspended Balls Create Bitmap Color Grid

I’m absolutely loving Nike Savvas’ brilliant installation Atomic: Full Of Love, Full Of Love which is created with thousands of suspended
bouncy balls organized in a hyperspectrum of colors. Created in 2005 this piece is a rainbow-brite labryinth of color that I’d love to get lost in for hours and hours. (via colosal & jobs wife)

Awesome Video Of The Day: Leon Golub

Leon Golub is hands down one of the most important political artists from the last century. His brutally painted unstretched canvases bring to light the horrors of war, greed, and torture. Watch this short documentary about Leon that gives insight into the artists process, his studio practice, and hear him discuss his controversial subject matter. Full video after the jump.

P.S. If you’re a fan of Leon’s work make sure to buy Beautiful/Decay Issue:I featuring an exclusive article by Golubs close friend and fellow political art hero Robbie Conal.

Caleb Larsen

Caleb Larsen

Caleb Larsen must be one of those really smart people that thinks really really hard all the time. His piece “A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter” is a sculpture that is programmed to reauction itself off on eBay every 7 days, and if you buy it, you are required to immediately put it back up for auction again, so the cycle keeps on repeating. Any attempt by me to explain this work in a paragraph or less is going to fail miserably – check out this excellent interview with the artist after the jump to get a better idea of what is really going on. If you are in Seattle, go see for yourself at Lawrimore Projects, Larsen’s show “Everything All The Time Right Now” is up until February 13th.

Ekta’s Heads


Ekta‘s simple yet elegant portraits are a great example of what can happen when careful color selection, refined composition, and carefully selected patterning come together to make an image.
