Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time.
Motoi Yamamoto has to be the most patient man in the world. A Japanese artist, Yamamoto uses salt to create monumental floor paintings, each so absurdly detailed, it makes A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte look like child's play. He calls them, fittingly, his Labyrinths. Yamamoto's latest labyrinth creeps out from a brick tunnel at the Fondation Espace Ecureuil , a gallery in France.
Pictured: Eve on the pillar-Sophia in b.g. & the his oil painting Phoenix Arise within Leigh's painted 3D studio library and wonder-study-The Hieroglyph of the Human Soul. On 9-11 when the towers came down Leigh began painting this domestic / creative / mythic space and has over the years continued to work on it constantly. The painted home environment of the Hieroglyph of the Human Soul is a creative epiphany that becomes multidimensional with Chroma Depth 3D glasses. and is unprecedented in art. Take a look. Leigh considers his acting career to be his patron. His success as an actor has given him the opportunity to work as an artist unfettered by the demands and ever-changing tastes of the contemporary art world.

Traditional Art / Moleskine Sketchbook #01 In late 2008 I happened upon my first Moleskine sketchbook and I don't think I will ever use another brand of sketchbook ever again. The quality, feel, slight yellow tinge - all of it just so pleasant to draw on. When I first started sketching inside of the book, I felt my line quality and hatching were somewhat lacking and so I set myself a goal. Even now, I do not know exactly what that goal is, other than when my work meets it, hopefully I will know.
