Walton Creel: Deweaponizing the Gun

February 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Alabama artist Walton Creel uses a .22 caliber rifle to construct portraits of animals on thick sheets of aluminum, one bullet at at time.

When I decided I wanted to make art using a gun, I was not sure what direction I would have to take. I knew I did not want to use it simply as an accent to work I was doing, but as the focus. My main goal was to take the destructive power away from the gun. To manipulate the gun into a tool of creation and use it in a way that removed it from its original purpose, to deweaponize it.

A Lull: Weapons for War

January 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’ve been on the fence about posting this for almost a week since finding it over on fuck yeah chicago, and after watching it for the third or fourth time I’ve decided to pull the trigger. I have no idea what’s going on here. It’s kind of like somebody made a music video using the monster from M. Night’s The Village. Also there’s lots of bleeding. Whatever, I think it’s great and I can’t get the music out of my head. By the Chicago band A Lull, directed by Anthony Ciannamea.

I remember seeing Chris Scarborough‘s wide-eyed Ideal Species series (scroll through this if you haven’t seen it before) a while back, so it was a surprise to see these incredible illustrations were by the same artist. If you’re in North Carolina his work is on display as part of the Art on Paper 2010 exhibit at the Weatherspoon Guild Gallery through February 6.

Fredrik Ödman: Composed Animals

December 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Holy swan-rabbits and fish-monkeys! Composed Animals is an incredible series of composite photographs by Fredrik Ödman. I wish we lived in a world where some of these animals exist (though airborne anteaters give me the heebie-jeebies), however at least we live in one where Fredrik does.

Moo: A Full-scale Modern Moose Lamp

December 27, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Designed by Norwegian firm NorthernLighting, this lamp is the polar opposite of those cardboard cut-out animal heads that are all the rage lately.

Moo is a full scale wall-mounted Norwegian light moose head. Moo may be used both for indoor and outdoor decoration purposes. The figuratively shaped lamp body is made of poly-resin material, which gives a smooth and transparent flow of light. The bulbs placed inside the horns add an extra element of soft, sparkling and translucent light effect to the lamp.

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.
