Daniel Shea – Plume

DanielShea-CheshireOhioDaniel Shea’s new series “Plume” is an ongoing photographic examination of coal-fired power plants in Southeast Ohio.  The plants loom in his photos, part of the daily lives of the residents.  The photos are poignant and revealing.  If you would like to support Daniel’s ongoing series you can buy a print, and if you’d like to see more of his projects, like his awesome Baltimore series, check out his website.

Paul Octavious

Chicago’s Paul Octavious creates imaginative and whimsical scenes from household objects and everyday life.  His work is full of clever ideas that always make me smile.  Make sure to check out his gravity-defying “The Book Collection” where he plays a literary Jenga to spell out words and numbers.

See more of Paul’s work at his website and below the jump.  Then see how many books you can stack up.

Andreas Fischer

Andreas Fischer’s “Ghost Town” is currently on view in our lovely city of Chicago. Ghost Town, which is on view at two separate venues, Hyde Park Art Center and The Gahlberg Gallery, shows us two distinct selections of Andreas’s portraiture and imagined landscapes. There is a nice anonymous quality to these  locations and figures, with titles like “Original Location” and “Sunday Best”. Plus, the work actually becomes more engaging after you read about it, which in my opinion, is often not the case.
