Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)

Awesome, awesome, a thousand times awesome. Loving these images by NY photographer Steven Brahms.

Many more images on his site, and some of his work-in-progress over on similarprojects.com. (via beautiful decay)

Creepy Stuff from Celia Marais

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

For her series titled Field Excursion artist Celia Marais constructed these other-worldly organisms out of actual meat and fish—I can almost see the slime dripping down my monitor. Some of the creepy crawly things were then modeled and animated for use on Amon Tobin’s web site (previously). Prints available via The Beholder.
