Clay Hickson’s Saved By The Bell Meets Matisse Collage Aesthetic

Clay Hickson‘s work has got that “Saved By The Bell intro meets a Matisse collage meets a Lichtenstein painting meets Greco-Roman sculpture” feel to it. He takes you into simple rooms occupied by simple foods, simple men, and simple women, with great speed and pacing. He uses an ancient and modern language. It’s a pleasant viewing experience. He tumbles and flicks.

Premiere website builder Made With Color and Beautiful/Decay have teamed up yet again to bring you exclusive artist features. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers working today who use Made With Color to create their clean and sleek websites. Website builder Made With Color doesn’t just help artists create minimal and mobile/tablet responsive websites but allows them to do so in a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This excited to share the sculptures and installations of Alexis Zoto.

The work of Los Angeles artist Alexis Zoto is inspired by her Albanian Orthodox heritage, art history, antiquities, family stories and her personal experiences as a woman, wife and mother. Her work is distinctly feminine and feminist. The starting point of the work is found materials such as a piece of discarded furniture found on the street and family lore/cautionary tales. Often these stories highlight struggles with acculturation. Drawing from both from high and low culture as a source of inspiration and materials,  she uses buttons, birds, lace, plates, chandelier, motifs from traditional Albanian textiles, furniture parts, and evil eye amulets in her work to connect the past to the present, the personal to the public, and the intimate to art history.

Javier Riera’s Outdoor Interventions of Light

Spanish artist Javier Riera produces what he calls “light and geometry interventions” on landscapes.  Using powerful light Riera projects geometric patterns on to natural vistas.  The projections can appear to transform a treeline into a two dimensional plane.  At other times the light seems to add strict geometric shapes to the wilderness.  The light and patterns disrupt the perception of the view they cover.  Riera’s transposing geometric patterns onto natural scenery partly alludes to language, matter, and the way the two interact.

Expressive use of color, text, and perspective from NY artist Benjamin Degen. He also sports an extremely cool homepage on his website – simple but catchy and effective. Folksy yet refined, his work reminds me a little bit of Seurat. Find more at Guild & Greyshkul Gallery.
