Archives for the Month of February, 2010

Pierre Le Hors

Pierre Le Hors Work from Firework Studies. His blog is also pretty solid. “Firework studies is a hand-bound book dummy compiling a selection of fireworks in the night sky. By constraining nearly all tonal values to stark blacks and pure whites, the trails, explosions and clouds of debris are reduced to a series of simple […]

Travis LeRoy Southworth

Travis LeRoy Southworth Work from Detouched. Spend some time on Southworth’s website, pay particular attention to his video work. “My recent series of work Detouched is a collection of abstract portraits. Created from the physical “flaws” that define us—wrinkles, moles, blemishes, and stray hairs—which are often removed from commercial portraits. The new work shows little […]

Adam Parker Smith

Adam Parker Smith Work from his oeuvre. “Constructing the aftermath of invented ceremonies from materials including paper, wood and fabric, I create narratives by combining real events, daydreams and preexisting fables. Through this combination, I establish a site for disparate elements to congregate. These tragicomic installations are cartoonishly bright, overtly decorative and colorful. They are […]

Baptiste Debombourg

Baptiste Debombourg Work from Turbo. “The turbo wave of the 80′s left its mark on the industry and on the whole cultural situation in Western Europe. It became a model of behavior. The sound effect gives sensation of real physical power. To advance, the people from East Europe put some more “tuning” everywhere – for […]

Gordon Matta Clark

Gordon Matta Clark Work from his oeuvre (including Conical Intersect and Office Baroque). “Like his father, the Surrealist painter Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren, Gordon Matta-Clark studied to be an architect. While it never became his profession, architecture—with its inextricable relationship to private and public space, urban development and decay—became his medium and subject matter. Using […]

Dru Donovan

Dru Donovan Work from her oeuvre. “Young American photographer Dru Donovan’s photographs are ambiguous and sensitive and compelling. Looking at the images, its hard to know whether her work is staged, or more reportage based. She graduated from Yale last year, but information on her or her work is scant, which actually serves to make […]

Antoine Lefevbre

Antoine Lefevbre Work from his oeuvre. ““The exhibition’s multi-disciplinary character is a reflection of the diversity of Parsons Fine Art Program’s student body and their engagement with a wide range of current trends in global art practices,” notes Fine Arts Chair Coco Fusco. ”Students in the program hail from Turkey, Korea, Taiwan, Russia, France, Canada, […]

Robert Kulisek

Robert Kulisek Work from Photographing Sculptures. “Offered here is artwork as a form of investigation, not artwork as an authoritative assertion. To perceive a photograph (or artwork) in such a way is to point to something unsure inside of it, to insist on the once and future presence of a thing, an event, or a […]

Greg Stimac

Greg Stimac Work from his oeuvre. The stills from above video projects in no way due justice to even the most basic appreciation of content. Please go to his website to check them out. “Greg Stimac works within a mode of photography with a rich history, the photographic series constructed from images captured in travels […]

Nathaniel Smyth

Nathaniel Smyth Work from Maps and Spaces. “Using the snapshot as a metaphor for visual perception, I experiment with strategies of arranging those perceptions to investigate the various ways our minds understand the space we inhabit. Using images from both personal and mass culture as a form of cumulative experience, I layer the images to […]
