I am really digging Chinese artist Ju Duoqi’s personified vegetables! She takes old masterpieces like the Mona Lisa or Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe and recreates them with tofu, cabbage, ginger, potatoes, the list goes on. Can you guess which paintings these are?
Although these meticulously crafted porcelain dolls are not the usual Beautiful/Decay fare, something about them really caught our eye. I love their slightly grotesque exposed joints and creepily expressive faces. They are created by artist Marina Bychkova.
Philadelphia based artist Erin M Riley creates incredible handwoven tapestries with hand dyed wool on nylon warp. Her work touches on issues of death, self exploitation through gender and the internet, addiction, and loneliness.
At first glance at London-based Benedict Radcliffe’s work, I thought, “Oh, a computer generated drawing of a car…okay.” Then I immediately realize it is not as boring as I had first assumed! No! These are, full scale, actual wire-frame representations of a Lamborghini, Subaru, etc.
