Anselm Kiefer Anselm KieferGrane, Woodcut with paint and collage on paper mounted on linen, Museum of Modern Art, New York. Anselm Kiefer (born March 8, 1945) is a German painter and sculptor. He studied with Joseph Beuys and Peter Dreher during the 1970s. His works incorporate materials such as straw, ash, clay, lead, and shellac. The poems of Paul Celan have played a role in developing Kiefer's themes of German history and the horror of the Holocaust, as have the spiritual concepts of Kabbalah. In his entire body of work, Kiefer argues with the past and addresses taboo and controversial issues from recent history.
Alyssa Monks Alyssa Monks is blurring the line between abstraction and realism by layering different spaces and moments in her paintings. She flipped background and foreground using semi-transparent filters of glass, vinyl, steam, and water over shallow spaces in her 10-year long water series. Today, she is imposing a transparent landscape of infinite space over evocative subjects. The tension in her paintings is sustained by the composition and also by the surface quality itself. Each brushstroke is thickly applied oil paint, like a fossil recording every gesture and decision, expressing the energetic and empathic experience of the handmade object. “I strive to create a moment in a painting where the viewer can see or feel themselves, identify with the subject, even be the subject, connect with it as though it is about them, personally.”
andrew wilson I recorded a song earlier. Overly sappy as usual. I compiled some random video to it. I started smoking cigarettes again Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood One of my favorite details in Rossetti’s Proserpine is that her lips are painted almost the exact shade of the pomegranate. Those luscious, cupid’s bow lips and the elongated neck are indicative of Rossetti’s later style. It was a time in his life when he was plagued with mental health troubles and personal drama, yet in this period he created many of the vivid representations of women that have become synonymous with the name Dante Gabriel Rossetti. La Ghirlandata is another example of the perfect Rossetti mouth. But even when the lips are not depicted in an exaggerated pout, we can still find works that celebrate the mouth. There is no finer example than Bocca Baciata:
J.W. Kinsey's Artifice Portfolio "the Hesterion: a wall sconce" - industrial grade resin, assorted electronics This is the Hesterion Wall Sconce. These are intended to be installed in multiples, surrounding a window or running down a hallway or library, for example. They do not need an existing electrical junction box, but rather simply surface mount to a wall with two screws. Power can be provided within either standard, inexpensive conduit or plastic plumbing hardware, or with a simple cord drop from a hole out the bottom of the fixture: some minor customization is expected on the part of the installer. The knob at the bottom of the fixture is the rotary On/Off switch.
juliandenarvaez New set of posters made for ADNEditorial Design, Illustration, Print Design2013 I had the pleasure once again of working with Folio art to produce the illustrations for this Douglas and gordon campaign. Special thanks to Chris Belson from Folio Art, for all his hard work and excellent management, and to Ellie Kingsbury also from Folio Art, for always being ready to collaborate. Drawing, Illustration2013 PAPA SANGRE It was really nice to illustrate this amazing application game in which I work with with two wonderful creative teams, Folio art and Something Else. Papa Sangre is a video game with no video. It’s a first-person thriller, done entirely in audio by an award-winning team of game designers, musicians, sound designers and developers.
Giovanna Garzoni Giovanna Garzoni (1600–1670) was an Italian painter of the Baroque era. She was unusual for Italian artists of the time for two reasons: first, in that her themes were mainly decorative and luscious still-lifes of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and second, because she was a woman. Garzoni was born in Ascoli Piceno. Her training was with an otherwise unknown painter from her native town of Ascoli Piceno. She gained substantial success at her trade in Rome, Venice, Florence (1642–1651), Naples, and Turin. superposition concept, direction & music: Ryoji Ikeda in collaboration withperformers: Stephane Garin, Amélie Grouldprogramming, graphics & computer system: Tomonaga Tokuyama, Norimichi Hirakawa, Yoshito Onishioptical devices: Norimichi Hirakawastage manager: Simon MacColltechnical manager: Tomonaga Tokuyamaproduction assistant: Daisuke Sekine production: Ryoji Ikeda Studio (Artistic direction: Emmanuelle de Montgazon, Administration: Yuko Higaki), Quaternaire (Producer and artist management: Sarah Ford, Associate producer: Laurie Uprichard, administration: Kathleen Aleton, Coordination and marketing: Joanna Rieussec), Forma (Artistic Director: David Metcalfe) commissioned by the Festival d’Automne à Paris for the musical partcreated and developed at Parc de La Villette (Paris, FR), YCAM Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (JP), ZKM (Karlsruhe, DE)
