Chris Duncan

Duncan_Everything_All_At_Once_print

Chris Duncan is a fabulous Oakland based artist that I have had the pleasure of spending some time with over the past year. His installations, performance, drawing, painting, book making, sculpture and print-work are not only ambitious, but easy to get lost in, and most importantly, totally gorgeous! One of the hardest working artist in the game.

McHargue Sculptures

Hey! Remember that interview with Keegan McHargue that we posted not too long ago? He mentioned that he was doing some sculpture work and I asked him what they look like. They look like this. Pre Teen.

John Parot

Studio Shot 1

Check out these lovely works by up and coming artist, John Parot. This recent Chicago—-> LA transplant, has great use of color, pattern, composition and collage technique, plus he’s starting to delve into the realms of sculpture and animation! Looking good.

Interview: Jeff Eisenberg

Jeff Eisenberg

Jeff Eisenberg creates almost Rorschach-like images that hover somewhere between structural vector flights of futuristic fancy and strange biomorphic organisms. Conducted on multiple layers of mylar, they could almost be strange architectural blueprints for a sci-fi movie. He also works in the less common medium of sound installation. All inspired by automatic-writing creative exercises, the works have a strange, abstracted linguistic impulse. Read the full interview detailing Jeff’s studio practice, sources of inspiration and his unique brainstorming process.

Danny Treacy

Danny Treacy

Made from found objects and discarded clothing, Danny Treacy creates these haunting stiff figures that seemingly link Frankenstein and trash. In the “Them” series, this London based artist successfully creates a sculpture that is full of contradictions, Treacy describes these creatures as “soiled and stained and perfectly formed,victors and the victims, true and false.”

Bill Burns – Safety Gear for Small Animals

Bill Burns - Safety Gear for Small Animals

Everyone loves a miniature. That’s why we all love Bill Burns’ Safety Gear for Small Animals. These tiny guys are on display at the MoMA in New York along with guides on how to assist small animals. Burns’ work consists mainly of sculpture, photographs and books. All of his work acts as a commentary on human stewardship of the environment.
