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.

Anarchistic Porcelain Hippos

January 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I have no idea why, but there’s something about a smoking anarchistic porcelain hippo that really strikes a chord with me. Designed by Frank Kozik and K.Olin Tribu, these suckers are priced more like art than toys but head over to Art and Toys if you want to learn more. Available in black, red, or as a pack of two. Kick ass. (via artskills)

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)
