Tea for Three: Shunga Inspired Art by Jeff Faeber (NSFW) » Rush Blog–MUSIC | FASHION | ART | CULTURE “As one who has “fallen from grace,” as it were, I have a natural interest in the underdog, the discarded and unwanted. Hence, I often paint on or incorporate cardboard, trash, society’s forgotten, landfill-bound material. I react to what I feel is often an overly sanitised, saccharine façade that is projected on us by mass commercialisation, or groupthink (or religion or politics or whatever.) There is often beauty in despair. View NSFW images below. For those of us who don’t know, Shunga–according to Wikipedia–is a Japanese term meaning “erotic art.” What that statement is, however, is up to your discretion.

Remarkable Animals Painted in Ink by George Boorujy Brooklyn based artist George Boorujy creates impossibly detailed ink paintings of North American birds and other animals, often pouring numerous photographs and visiting zoos where the animals are kept before embarking on a piece. Boorujy challenges the viewer to confront both the animal and their preconceived notions about it. Through their gaze an interaction evolves with the wild that otherwise would have to be sought out or birthed from happenstance. George’s latest solo show, Blood Memory, opens at P.P.O.W. gallery in New York on March 15.

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural.
