Julie Heffernan from Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. They avoid the mawkish or macabre by virtue of an evocative 17th century Baroque styling and the dignity with which she handles her primary subject, herself. Good construction is essential to the success of such works, built of disparate things suggesting disparate philosophies and ages.

Van Gogh Painting is a Vertical Green Wall Photo: B. Alter It's the first living painting in London's Trafalgar Square, and maybe the first anywhere. A Van Gogh picture has been turned into a green living vertical wall. Depicting Van Gogh's painting, A Wheatfield with Cypresses, it's a new way to draw people into the National Gallery to see the real thing. Photo: National Gallery: A Wheatfield, with Cypresses 1889 The living painting has been constructed by a horticulture and design company which specialises in green walls and roofs. They used over 8,000 plants of 25 different varieties. It took 3 days to install the wall which forms part of a hoarding outside the gallery. 'A Wheatfield, with Cypresses' was painted in September 1889, when Van Gogh was in the St-Rémy mental asylum, near Arles, where he was a patient from May 1889 until May 1890. The painting has been brought to life with the sponsorship of GE (General Electric) as part of the Gallery's long-term plan to reduce its carbon footprint.

Painting Intoxicated at 100 MPH (10 pieces) - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon It's almost as if Alexandra Pacula paints what she sees while driving drunk at 100 mph. "My work investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife," says the New York-based artist born in Poland. "I am fascinated by the ambiance of the city at night and its seductive qualities. Pacula paints with oil to recreate the feeling of dizziness and confusion. "I suggest motion in order to slow down the scene and capture the fleeting moments, which tend to be forgotten," she says.

Robin Wood :: wooden bowls & plates :: traditional turning :: spoon carving :: countryside furniture When George Lailey died in 1958 a craft going back more than 2000 years died with him. He was the last person in England to make a living turning wooden bowls on a foot powered pole lathe. In medieval times nearly everybody in Britain ate from wooden bowls every day. They were beautiful, functional bowls that linger on in memories of Goldilocks but were killed off by the industrial revolution and cheap pottery. I became fascinated by the craft whilst working in woodland conservation and set about reviving the lost technique, first learning the blacksmithing skills I needed to forge the specialised turning tools. Like the old turners I use no sandpaper relying entirely on the sharpness of my tools to get a clean cut finish. December 15th 2008 was exactly fifty years since the ‘last bowlturner’ George Lailey died aged 89. These are cut from one block of wood, one from inside the next, using special curved tools which I forge myself. This video shows how this unique set of bowls was made.
Wicked Samurai Skateboarders (12 total) - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon Inspired by a recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, San Francisco based painter Ferris Plock decided to cleverly mashup samurais and skateboarders in his new series, Rest for the Wicked. This new collection embodies the artist's trademark character-based works along with a Ukiyo-e inspired sensibility. Ukiyo-e, or Japanese woodblock prints, is one of the most universally known of all Japanese arts. Fock used a variety of media such as acrylic, gouache, gold leaf, and spray paint on wood panel to create his art. The Shooting Gallery Dream Big by Peter Fecteau “Dream Big” was a year-long project in which Pete created a mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes. > petefecteau.com
