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)

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.

Claire Fontaine’s Consumption

December 21, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Match installations are hot! Really beautiful work by Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine at Helena Papadopoulos in Athens, on display now through January 15, 2011. The last image is from a 2004 show at the Front Room. See also the work of Chicago artist Pei-San Ng. (via contemporary art daily)

Peter Wegner

December 21, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I was originally going to post a series of Peter Wegner‘s Buildings made of Sky as seen over on Booooooom, but after digging through his portfolio for a while I decided to share just about everything else. Raised in North Dakota, Peter Wegner graduated from Yale and now works out of Berkeley, California. His works are part of the permanent collections at the Guggenheim and MoMa in New York, among others.

The 600 stockings were hung by the chimney with care

December 17, 2010

A giant Christmas stocking installation by Paprika for the window of furniture retailer Domison in Motreal. Domison required the materials for the installation to be recyclable, so all 300 pairs of socks will be unpinned and donated to a local shelter after the holidays. (via mocoloco)
