I am in love with Derek Aylward’s use of mixed media and flat renderings that create these amazingly haunting images that are just congested with expression and mood.

Mark Alsweiler

Mark Alsweiler, an emerging artist in Sydney, just finished one of his exhibitions over at Nine Lives Gallery in Brisbane. He gains inspiration from his personal interests (immediately you can notice the influence of American Indian, Western, and Mexican imagery) to create a symbolic body of work. I am really enjoying his skull paintings and his love of pattern making.

San Francisco based artist, Kevin E. Taylor, creates incredible and symbolic paintings that also have a certain sense of humor. I am pretty excited about some of his religiously themed paintings. There is a strong idea of creation vs. construction going on in some of his recent work.

Skinner Show This Saturday!

King's Lament, The Keeing Wail of the Dark

I recently got an email from Skinner, one of my fave heshin’ heavy metal artists and also B/D Book 3 participant, about his show at White Walls gallery this Saturday. It read: “There will be over twenty of my new works, mystical hand crafted masks, and twisted and intricate sculptures, all of which will most definitely rock your world.” ‘Nuff said. Wish I could be there in person, but if you’re in SF, this is not to be missed!

Scott Everingham

lrg-78-lifelong_intermission

Scott Everingham is an artist who is based in Toronto. As a painter, Scott particularly enjoys the various forms of experiences created through the vast language of paint. He creates abstract, gorgeously fictional environments where you could almost make out tangible imagery. An experience I would relate to observing an illusion out of the corner of your eye. Though Scott’s paintings appear almost completely spontaneous, you would be surprised to know that along with the process of impulsive mark making, there are extensive preparations through drawing.

Currently, Scott Everingham is exhibiting his paintings in Amsterdam and Rotterdam at the Le Secet Museum. If this blog post has sparked your interest in Scott Everingham, you can view his work up close at his solo exhibition at Galarie Trois Points in Montreal in January 2011.

William Steinman

-4

New York based artist William Steinman creates sexy and raw pieces that carry a strong undertone of their source of inspiration: street culture and Pop art. Growing up, he kept himself busy by exploring downtown Phoenix on his skateboard. In doing so, he was introduced to the graffiti art that populated his surroundings, and fell in love with it. Though William was initially inspired, he started to notice how increasingly redundant graffiti was turning out. He decided to focus his artistic endeavors elsewhere, and started to study painting. But first love is always the strongest, and William found himself charmed by the bold lines and appropriated imagery of Pop art.

Observing William Steinman’s paintings and sculptures is the equivalent of trying to stay perfectly still inside a hurricane of motion. He constantly plays with adaptation and reconstruction within an environment of deconstruction. Using found materials, store bought objects, comic books, and finishing them off with industrial glue, the end result is what he likes to accurately describe as “the dark side of Pop.”

William is currently an MFA student over at Queens College in New York City. In a few weeks he will be presenting his bold, raw, and sexy portfolio of work at his MFA Thesis show. Unfortunately, I live much too far and will not be able to attend. However, anyone out there who will be in the area should definitely indulge themselves! Go!
