Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)
Jacek Yerka is a 55 year old Polish artist who decided to take on the artistic route early on. Born within an art-oriented family - both his parents attended the Fine Arts Academy - he was surrounded by materials that captivated his interest in drawing and painting throughout his entire childhood. His sole memories from childhood are of sketches, the smell of paint, ink, paper and brushes.
Chen Dao Lee’s Twisted Paintings of Fiery-Haired Vixens
Taiwan-born artist Chen Dao Lee’s creates ambiguous narratives of unresolved tensions. His style is nearly photorealistically perfect. His compositions are taut and vigorous. If the light in his work made a noise, it would be loud and blaring. It’s his choice of subject that makes the work provocative. Each piece features young, beautiful, semi-clad women with garish red hair. Some hold automatic weapons. Some wrestle with each other. Some engage in sexual escapades with other women. Some do so with other men. These women are young, beautiful, and… bored.
The Vibrant Portraits of Alvaro Tapias
Imbued with intensity, Chilean artist Alvaro Tapia brings vibrant, contrasting colors and geometric shapes to his illustrations. Despite his chaotic aesthetic, Tapia admits that the process behind his portraits is meticulous, slow and deliberate. First reducing the image to its contours, he finds method in his madness by using bold techniques that add to the original portrait until the image itself bursts with life.
Françoise Nielly and her flashy portraits. Here is a new serie of artwork, still further, more accomplished
Sophie Kahn Sculptures
Sophie Kahn’s work addresses the resonances of death in the still image. It owes its fragmented aesthetic to the interaction of new and old media, and the collision of the body with imaging technology.
I combine cutting-edge means of reproduction, like 3d laser scanning and 3d printing, with ancient bronze casting techniques. Using damaged 3d data, I create sculptures and video works that resemble de-constructed monuments or memorials.
The precise 3d scanning technology I use was never designed to capture the body, which is always in motion. When confronted with a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, generating a 3d ‘motion blur’. From these scans, I create videos or life-sized 3d printed mold sculptures. The resulting sculptures bear the artifacts of all the digital processes they have been though. The scanning and 3d printing process strips color and movement from the body, leaving behind only traces of its form – a scan of the face resembles nothing more than a digital death mask.
‘The present and future – Avro Vulcan B2 launching a Blue Steel stand-off bomb’ (by totallymystified)
The painting is a memory. Memory dazzled feelings of brush strokes scrapings, the recoveries of oil painting. The table is stricher Gérard worked in the moving material, it moves, it vibrates to the eye intangible. Listen to the color, measure the impossibility of painting and to find each table, the rhythms of the consequences to life.
