Studio Visit: Stas Orlovski

Stas

I recently stopped by the studio of LA painter  and B/D featured artists Stas Orlovski. Stas and I have been trading studio visits for quite a while and it’s always fun to see what he’s up  to. Not only is his work brilliant but he has a studio that anyone would be jealous of. It’s more tropical oasis than studio with amazing landscaping surrounding the converted garage studio. More  finished paintings and work in progress after the jump.

Laurie Simmons

I’m quite excited to see new work from Laura Simmons . Glamor magazine asked some of America’s top female artists to define the concept of glamor, and these images are the result of Laurie Simmons’. She has stayed true to her hand made house wife aesthetic and really made this project her own. I like how these images juxtapose pornographic images with a child’s doll house, her critic on an overtly sexual society within the concept of glamor comes through very well.

Keeping with my collage theme for today I present the work of Chicago based artist Adam Gondek. Am I crazy or do some of these have a Richard Prince feel to them? Maybe it’s just the naked ladies.

Mario Zoots

Mario Zoots does some pretty amazing collage work. I love how cut outs on faces can alter a harmless image into something a little haunting.

Michael Willis

Michael Willis‘ visual language doesn’t consist of any single point of reference. Rather, it is a syncretic blend of multiple styles and influences – a sort of hodgepodge of 60s psychedelia, 80s computer graphics, and a modern view of pop culture. Imagery sometimes includes figures that are in the American cultural unconscious – Frank from Blue Velvet, for example, makes an appearance in a drawing. But more often than not this outlook on pop culture, especially looking back towards the 60s and 70s, is expressed through the utilization of stock imagery of anonymous, yet clearly old, photographs of people from days of yore.

Gordon Magnin

Gordon Magnin, an artist currently residing in Los Angeles, California,  works with found images to turn high fashion magazine layouts into bizarre portraits. I  like the way he cuts up the found images and pieces them back together to create something completely new, each having their own personality.
