jackson 300x400 OFF THE WALL:  Richard Jackson

A mere glimpse into the world of California contemporary artist,  Richard Jackson was all it took to command my attention, and at times, to render me utterly speechless.   This man has certainly not allowed himself to be pinned  down to one design aesthetic; but instead has  immersed himself in a world of projects which are at times fraught with disturbing images or humor or are just plain over the top size-wise, or all three.

Richard labels most of his art as theoretical, as he personally does not have the funds or the facilities to pull off most of the concepts he’s contrived.     Fortunately, [ Continue Reading ]

Alright, I’m going a little bit mainstream here as I stumbled upon this artist whilst reading Vogue (I was at a hair salon. Beauty magazines happen). But for once in my life, I was actually pleased that whilst flipping among various ads of half-naked women, I found a little mini article on Chiharu Shiota’s installation entitled ‘Room of Memory’.

Sunny Choi has a gallery in the heart of up-and-coming hipsterian culture, located in Toronto (Canada, that is) over at Queen and Ossington. Walking by her gallery late and tipsy one good ol’ Monday night, I was struck then swooned by the texture and style of her brush strokes. Yeah, sure. She does recreations of some movie stars, and her paintings are all of pretty girls, but the darned brush strokes, folks! [ Continue Reading ]

Check out some of my personal favorites after the jump. [ Continue Reading ]

In an attempt to trace the artist that composed these images that popped up in my inbox in a chain e-mail, I have failed miserably only to find this meager link that contains no information on the artist and/or where they came from. [ Continue Reading ]
