PORCELAINIA from Dave Altizer on Vimeo.

Filmmaker Dave Altizer’s short mini-documentary Porcelainia features Bobby Jaber, an educator, scientist, and artist. After Jaber retired from teaching chemistry, he was able to focus his energies on porcelain work, specifically geometric designs based on molecular shapes. Jaber’s approach to his work is inspired by his scientist/artist predecessors, most notably Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome. Though he’s had a little financial success with some of his work, Jaber is clearly motivated by love and dedication to his craft. Be sure to stick around after the credits to catch Jaber’s priceless reaction to current technology.

Geometrically Choreographed Mixed Media Spacial Collages

Ruiz Villar - Mixed MediaRuiz Villar - Mixed MediaRuiz Villar - Mixed Media

A. Ruiz Villar parcels out space in relation to geometric positions, with minimal pops of color threaded throughout. His subtle gradations of white give special depth and age to the work so imagery doesn’t feel flat, but formed, or architecturally emerging. These vibrant compositions are not easy to visually choreograph– however, Villar makes it look beautifully accidental and organic.

Of his work, Villar’s stance seems like a conceptual mash-up of science, math, and poetry, suggesting it “revolves around the quest for a language akin to the following factors: 1.1.1. Provisionality (doubt): Lack of an evident purpose. 1.1.2. Continuity: There are silences, there’s no rest. 1.1.3. Uprootedness: There’s no commitment to technique, structure, or materials.”

David Marc Grant’s Painted Collisions Of Pattern And Color

David Marc Grant David Marc Grant David Marc Grant

Painter David Marc Grant‘s fantastical, somewhat neo-surrealist paintings on panel showcase a sophisticated sense of both color and composition. The layers of each piece seem to prop up the next, leaving plenty of corners and pockets for Grant to explore his interest in small detail and pattern. Although the compositions are mostly abstract collisions of geometric shapes and thick, viscous liquids—the artist positions the work as a mirror for the collapse of contemporary society. Grant’s inclination for abstraction disguises these artistic intentions in an attractive blend of quirkiness and color, leaving the viewer with a candy-coated version of dystopian landcape.

Found Wood Transformed Into Geometrical Musical Instruments

sawbridgesculpture12sawbridgesculpture5sawbridgesculpture

While Jack Sawbridge was studying architecture at the University of Nottingham, he became interested in sacred geometries and the ratios and styles associated with the form. He often finds pre-existing pieces of wood to use as his starting point before constructing their formal geometries. Sawbridge then integrates light, guitar strings, and/or glass sound tubes, giving these seductive forms a function. These beautiful works are fully operational and patrons are even allowed to experiment with them. Sawbridge’s work articulates the meticulous and delicate balance of architecture and sculpture.

Almut Vogel

I’ve always believed it is easiest to talk about artwork as if it almost doesn’t exist. The idea of a piece so fleeting, yet moving, is something romantic – and, in a sense, natural. The work of Almut Vogel taps the shoulder of this idea and smiles. In each line and scratch, the lightness and darkness sing songs about their lives, and history while trying to figure out their future.

Siggi Eggertsson recently updated his website and grid-oriented portfolio. His vector-heavy work explores color and tone in a very interesting way. His work would sit beautifully next to some Tom Wesselmann nudes.
