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.

World leaders apologize from the future

World leaders apologize from the future

Examples from several Greenpeace-commissioned ads that have just been revealed in and around Copenhagen airport in the run up to the 15th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) that takes place in the city next week. These ads feature a doctored image of a current world leader looking ten or so years older lamenting for their current inaction. Ad writer Toby Cotton of new agency Arc Communications (seemingly without a real website yet?) says about his choice of design that “the brief from Greenpeace International was simple, to put pressure on world leaders to create a fair and binding agreement at Copenhagen.” World leaders and big players in the Conference from around the world including Nicolas Sarkozy (France), Gordon Brown, (UK), Stephen Harper (Canada) and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (Brazil) join President Obama in the ranks.

Ryuta Amae Manipulated Paradise

An artist of his time, Ryuta Amae is a clever manipulator of images. Could his great, peaceful photography evoke – in the form of vast, luxurious residences or of a Family Robinson type house swamped by palm trees – Paradise, Eden conquered at last and peace for civilisation ? This image of rest is deceiving. For the images here are the result of sage elaborations, of digital crossbreeding and hybrids. From these creations of various all sorts, the reference is the occident’s imagination of happiness, one might as well call it the sublime by default, the coming constantly delayed, condemning us to contemplate beautiful, empty images. «I create a copy, an archetypical image,» the artist explains, «my photo is only a virtual memory.» A skilful way of uniting reality and the imaginary, giving them a connection and a tension, a reactivating of that problem which has always been attached to the image : illusion. -Paul Ardenne

Tania Dibbs’ Timeless Sculptures Of Barnacle Infested Waste

24112441802_348bfd077a_o23592205764_98d87ff129_b 23924836990_a491e5a9a2_b 24220427695_5afe44f9a9_o

Aspen Valley based multimedia artist Tania Dibbs has created an epic series of barnacle infested sculptures. Her work, generated with various materials such as resin, paint and found objects, acts as a timeless collection of discovered underwater treasures. The beauty of her pieces lay in the simultaneous precision and playfulness within the materiality. Each sculpture demands a second look, an investigation, a questioning of origin and time. Dibbs‘ work, which ranges well beyond sculpture, also touching media such as oil and encaustic, holds a constant theme of questioning nature and man’s relationship to it. With pieces such as her denatured alcohol containers, rusted waste cans, and bottles being infested by, if not entirely submerged, in tentacle-barnacle-algea reminiscent formations, she forces perspectives on how and why. Where it is the made man objects that take on the action of being disturbed and manipulated, it is, in fact, the object that does not belong. Dibbs transforms every day garbage into fragile and precious works of art, concurrently creating an environmental debate. Her work, she describes, portrays an “unstoppable nature, creeping along and encrusting and covering” (via Hi Fructose).

Tania Dibbs has a show coming up @ De RE Gallery in Los Angeles.

Crazy Looking Robots, Animals And Faces Made Out Of Trashed Boxes Move And Play In The Streets Of Bushwick, NY

IMG_9203 Centaur Dragon IMG_8585

Monsters faces, robots and crazy looking animals made our reclaimed cardboards and boxes transformed by artist Bryan Rogers are taking over the trash spots on the sidewalks of Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY. They create a surreal ambiance in the middle of the streets.
Bryan Rogers collects thrown-away pizza boxes, cardboards, boxes of any sizes from the neighborhood every week and make them into sculptures. He puts them out back on the sidewalk next to the collected trash and check if they’ve been taken or not. So far he says, the armor-clad centaur had its head taken first and the rest of its body later. He takes pictures of them and creates fun and dynamic animated Gifs he posts on his blog.

In the path of other artists designing art from reclaimed means he uses the streets are inspiration. Dag Weiser, following the same process, uses cardboards to build fantasy characters and display them outdoors.The rendering is creative, positive and ephemeral. The boxes are painted with vibrant colors, the body of the creature is punched, cut out and some small elements might be added (teeth, ears, hands and feet…). Bryan Rogers does not collect his art, he picks up unwanted materials, creates for his pleasure and ends the life of his disposable art the same way it started.
