a dault

August 30, 2011

not sure if i want to take brooklyn-based artist julia dault‘s paintings too seriously or not. with titles like “rowdy cats,” “bunga bunga,” and “skull crusher,” it seems like julia’s not asking us to ponder silently about abstraction, but rather wants to engage the viewer with color and roller-coaster-rides along her lines. her sculptures...

jimmy!

August 22, 2011

JIM ISERMANN—– born in the wrong decade? this southern california-based artist has been producing trippy technicolor paintings, furniture, shag carpet, rainbow textiles, and vinyl decals since the 80s, reaching into the depths of kitschy 60s and 70s design and appropriating essential elements. he’s also pretty good at securing corporate commissions, as is evident from...

dirt chronicles: part 4

January 13, 2011

thanks to a tip from cp, we can add japanese artist, koichi kurita, to our list of dirt-lovers. koichi drives around japan collecting soil samples from various areas, spending the night in his pickup truck. after drying and sifting the dirt, he arranges it lovingly into “libraries” encased in glass tubes or installs precisely-arranged-piles...

BIG THINGS AHEAD: BRANDI

November 9, 2010

brandi strickland‘s colorful, age-of-aquarius collages have been catching my eye on various art blogs for a while now. her site & shop, paperwhistle, is a clever way of making her work available to the masses, documenting her process and offering affordable prints and original works. when i read that she had just moved to richmond, virginia,...

happy diwali!

November 4, 2010

today is diwali, the hindu festival of light! although every country and region celebrates in different ways for different reasons, it’s generally known as the celebration of the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and the inner, transcendent reality over all “real-world” obstacles. it’s kind of a mix of christmas and new...

stripey

September 1, 2010

stripes. flag banners. rainbows. massive public installation. i’ve been obsessing over all of these things lately, so daniel buren’s work is really resonating right now.

holy of holies

April 28, 2010

have you guys seen holy mountain? i watched it once before and was quite intrigued but confused. this time around i paid attention for as long as i could and was still unable to decipher the barrage of symbols and signs. visually very very stimulating (lots of pattern, repetition, multiplicity, psychedelic scenes and colors)...
