New work from artist Annie Vought who delicately cuts away the white space from handwritten letters and scribbles. It seems her work has increased dramatically in its scale and complexity since I posted about her last year. See her work at Unspeakable Projects in San Francisco as part of her joint show “You Are A Bitch” with Hannah Ireland through April 21.

Nathalie Boutté creates paper collages using thousands of strips of recycled tissue paper, pages from discarded novels, and most recently translucent tracing paper. The strips are densely layered like thatch on a roof, exposing just the tips that act like pixels to form larger images. Born in 1967 Nathalie lives and works in Montreuil, France.

Incredible currency works by tattoo artist Scott Campbell as part of his latest show Noblesse Oblige that opened yesterday at OHWOW in LA. The top piece, a three dimensional skull, is comprised of a stack of $11,000 in cut, un-cut currency sheets.

Campbell expands his use of cut currency, sourcing uncut sheets of dollars directly from the United States Mint, to create large, intricate work with a sunken relief effect. One piece uses $11,000 worth of currency sheets to create an over two-foot cube, into which a three dimensional skull is carved-out. These works employ the familiar blue-collar vernacular of tattoo flash-boards – a skull smoking a cigarette, a skeleton’s hand in a provocative gesture, a single eye emitting a penetrating ray – and highlight the irony that exists within that imagery.

Learn and see more over at Arrested Motion and Slamxhype. The show runs through April 22.

Japanese artist Tomoko Shioyasu was born in Osaka in 1981 and majored in sculpture at the Kyoto City University of Arts. Her immense floor-to-ceiling tapestries are meticulously cut by hand from enormous sheets of paper using utility knives and soldering irons. Her work evokes some of nature’s most complex creations: the organic patterns of cells, the flow of water, and the forces of wind. How these are hung without tearing seems nearly impossible.

Her latest work, “Vortex” (first two images) is currently on display as part of the show Bye Bye Kitty!!! Between Heaven and Hell in Japanese Art at Japan Society in New York which opened today and runs through June 12. 50% of all proceeds from ticket sales to Japan Society programming including this show are being donated to relief efforts in Japan right now. Here’s a quick video about it:

A series of print ads for Dutch Book Week by Van Wanten Etcetera. This years theme was the “autobiography”, so 3D portraits of Anne Frank, Vincent van Gogh, Louis van Gaal and Kader Abdollah were created from books as centerpieces for the ad campaign. Despite how striking the ads are I have to admit that they were digitally produced, and in an age when anything can be realistically created with computers I tend to get more excited about the real thing, like the works of Julia Feld. That said, the artists for this campaign clearly spent lots of time focusing on the fine details, as even the text used on the pages came from the actual books. Digital or not, this is a lovely campaign. (via behance)
