The Woodwork of Ben Butler

January 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

If you’re in Chicago, artist Ben Butler will have work at Zg Gallery as part of a show that opens this Friday, January 7th. I find his sculpture to be almost hypnotic, as if the pieces themselves are the visualization of rhythm or sound. Very cool stuff.

Myeombeom Kim

January 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Myeombeom Kim could be my new favorite artist. Blending nature with man-made objects Kim explores the philosophical idea of hylozoism, that all or some material things possess life, or that all life is inseparable from matter. The images above are just a small handful of pieces from a much larger body of work and I urge you to poke around her site. (via who killed bambi)

Enjoying these folded book sculptures by photographer Cara Barer.

With the discarded books that I have acquired, I am attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography. This project has become a journey that continues to evolve. […] No important books have been injured during the making of any of these photographs.

Inversion House

December 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

In 2005 Art League Houston had two decaying studio houses that were soon to be replaced by a new building. Prior to demolition the two homes were given to sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck who proceeded to convert them into a giant vortex of maximum, unadulterated awesomeness.

Havel and Ruck created a large funnel-like vortex beginning from the west wall adjacent to Montrose Blvd. The exterior skin of the houses was peeled off and used to create the narrowing spiral as it progressed eastward through the small central hallway connecting the two buildings and exiting through a small hole into an adjacent courtyard.

Ecstasy by Karen Cusolito and Dan Das Mann

Christopher Jobson

Ecstasy is an enormous sculpture by artists Karen Cusolito and Dan Das Mann that’s been on display since February on Patricia’s Green in San Francisco. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, this is your last chance to see it as the piece will be removed at the end of the week. Many more wonderful photos via Thomas Hawk.

Le Creative Sweatshop

December 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

New work from Paris-based Le Creative Sweatshop that does things the old fashioned way using paper, glue, sweat, blood, and probably some tears. I also really, really love this cover for Mamz’hell. Even more stuff over on Behance.
