Claire Oswalt: Peril in Perfection

January 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The web browser dwarfs the actual scale of these mixed-media marionettes by Claire Oswalt. I initially mistook them for detailed illustrations on cut-out paper, but a closer look revealed they are actually enormous drawings on top of paper adhered to machined wood. Lots more great stuff in her portfolio. (via the fox is black)

I remember seeing Chris Scarborough‘s wide-eyed Ideal Species series (scroll through this if you haven’t seen it before) a while back, so it was a surprise to see these incredible illustrations were by the same artist. If you’re in North Carolina his work is on display as part of the Art on Paper 2010 exhibit at the Weatherspoon Guild Gallery through February 6.

New work from French illustrator Florian Nicolle who layers ink, paper, paint and some subtle Photoshop editing to create these wonderfully messy images. Many more images and an interesting “step by step” over on Behance.

Laser Etchings by Jason Thielke

Christopher Jobson

Totally blown away by these etchings by Denver artist Jason Thielke. I bet this guy knew how to use a spirograph as a kid. Found on the exceptional Pattern Pulp.

The Drawing Machine

December 15, 2010

Christopher Jobson

For the past four years Harvey Moon, a photographer and artist currently studying at the Art Institute of Chicago has been working on a suspended robot that draws by taking instructions from a computer. His Kickstarter project (which is already 300% funded) is an opportunity for you to buy prints made from the device and to potentially fund drawing robot kits for the masses. Anything at the intersection of robots and art gets a huge thumbs up from me. (via make)

Tony Orrico, Penwald Drawings

November 15, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The latest work from Illinois-born artist and dancer Tony Orrico. Tony has worked/performed continuously for upward of four hours on his drawings that resemble enormous, manically scribbled spirographs. Here he explains his process for Penwald 4 (top image):

Penwald: 4: unison symmetry standing is the latest of my Penwald Drawings. I stand facing the wall in a stationary stance, using my arm span, bilateral movement, and alternating variables to inscribe three large circles. In circle one (day one), my right hand spontaneously navigates as my left hand instantly copies and reverses the patterning. In circle two (day two), I repeat this practice with the left hand leading. For the center circle (day three), both hands direct simultaneously, striving for perfect unison. I expand the surface area of the center circle by introducing bending my knees and rising to my toes. As a result of twelve hours of sustained mental and kinesthetic focus, the resemblance of six hemispheres appear. The remnants are beautifully intricate, but as is inherent in the nature of symmetries, they are also rather faulty.
