Monochromatic Installations by Marc Anthony-Polizzi

December 6, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Love these installations by Marc Anthony-Polizzi. Gah and he’s a couple years younger than me. I quit. Many more images of this and other contemporary installations in the new book Staging Space. (via we make money not art)

Embroidered CMYK Typography by Evelin Kasikov

December 6, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Based on the huge response to the embroidery work of Lauren DiCioccio last week I’m sure many of you will enjoy this CMYK typography by London-based Evelin Kasikov. Evelyn uses thread to mimic moiré patterns used by printers, where multiple color grids are overlapped to create shapes of blended color.

Pascal Mohlmann’s Gallery of Idiots

December 4, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Over the past several years Pascal Mohlmann has been speed painting friends and colleagues in Zurich for his Gallery of Idiots. The sessions last no longer than 30-60 minutes while Pascal works as quickly as possible on each portrait. The rest of his work is incredible albeit NSFW. (via marieaunet)

Torn Paper Sculptures by Anna-Wili Highfield

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Wonderful paper animal sculptures by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield.

The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings.

Lauren DiCioccio Stitches Media and Money

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I grew up in a house where the sound of my mom’s sewing machine was constantly hammering away in the background, so it’s easy for me to appreciate how much time it must take Lauren DiCioccio to make these pieces with just a needle and thread. Especially enjoy her sewnnews series. (via who killed bambi)

Andrew Smith: Kinetic Sculpture

November 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Utah artist Andrew Smith creates incredible kinetic sculptures from stuff found in junk yards and garage sales. His junk collection fills a 30-by-50-foot steel structure, and from the thousands of discarded industrial scraps he assembles mechanical Rube-Goldberesque machines from scratch. Definitely watch the video above to see some of the stuff in motion, there’s also a making of for a piece he built for the Salt Lake City Childrens Museum, and another interview he did in 2006.
