Art…or Something like it

Archan Nair 409x400 Art...or Something like itStarring out into the vastness of the big ol’ blue sky. Your head on the grass. Some ants scouting your arm but you don’t care. Maybe you got some booze in you. Maybe pollen gets you high enough. You’re just there, laying on the ground.

There are so many sights that seem like madness melting through the concrete of social sanity. Lazy eyes squinted in cigarette smoke. The corner stone of what a metropolis is on the very inside. This is the maddening world of Bill Sienkiewicz and you should only delve in if you’re not such a sensitive pussy. [ Continue Reading ]

Rachel Timmins is a beautiful, modified artist. She was in college doing an undergrad in art when she says, “…I looked in the mirror and realized that no one would hire me.

DSCN2209 s MindfrankI’d like to invite you to look at the picture above this text. Just really look at it. It’s the work of Emilia Forstreuter, by the way. Did you know it’s made of paper? It’s true! That’s paper. Isn’t that neat. Imagine the patience it must take to so carefully razor-cut a piece of paper like that. It makes you think about the meticulousness of it all, doesn’t it? About the “why” as opposed to the “what”. How very magical.
