Paul Graves

Paul Graves’ work is lewd and provocative, but is really clean and “editorial” at the same time. When browsing his portfolio you’ll notice the often usage of a couple things: balloons, nudity as a costume, and mannequins. It seems he likes exploring human vice, which always makes for a good concept…and zentai (Youtube is currently down, but the video should be good so check back later to see it, haha)!

Feast your eyes on Chris Burnside‘s exquisite cut/panel pieces. At first glance, his lines seem to be painted with black acrylic. However, upon closer inspection, you will find that these lines are actually tiny cracks formed via Burnside’s unique breaking-apart-and-reassembling process. It’s like piecing together an aesthetically pleasing, super abstract puzzle with colors highly reminiscent of graffiti.

Nadine Byrne

"The Grieving Suit", 2008

I know this artist has been posted and re-posted a couple times by various blogs, but I want to commit her to B/D cyberspace memory. Nadine Byrne’s work deal a lot with mysticism, spirituality, death, the occult- the wearable sculptures turning to costumes meant for performing in. It’s interesting to think about how there is a blanketing mourning process/protocol but that it varies culture to culture- or that the business of mourning necessitates the purchase of certain goods and the putting on a certain behavioral pattern.

Victor Timofeev

Victor Timofeev literally fell into drawing a few years ago after a horrid skateboarding accident and began using art to pour out frustrations that were simmering inside. Since then he has developed an amazing vocabulary incorporating perspectival, architectural and geometric patterns that engulf a space with sharp precision and confounding visual illusions. Where his earlier work incorporated obsessive and repetitive text as the base for color and form, he now builds a platform where physical and architectural objects plunge into geometric abstraction and the two forces coerce into infinite and poetic narrative.

Flickr is a great home for internet rascals of the creative type. Cody Brant’s wonky but eye-catching collage art definitely fit the bill. The magic randomness of cutting and pasting then committing the arrangement to permanence with a glue stick!

Matthew Dayler

I recently learned about Matthew Dayler’s work when Rick submitted him as a consideration to our “Submit your Artist” contest. His work was too great to not post as a runner up. The work references gay culture, self-portraiture and gender stereotypes in a vibrantly iconic, pop fashion. The masked works are on the verge of disguise, sexual play and masquerade- an interesting mixing and recontextualizing of metaphors.
