Between the Lines

January 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

“Between the Lines” is a 2007 piece by artist Ariana Boussard-Reifel. The book is a white supremacist screed that Ariana eviscerated, word by word. I contacted Ariana by email and this is what she said about the piece:

Between the Lines was completed in 2007. It is a white supremacist text that I cut every word out of. Essentially imposing the doctrine of color-based segregation on the book itself, removing all the black from the white, and rendering it meaningless as a consequence. It was part of a series that was a response to the rise in power of The World Church of the Creator, a vitriolic white supremacist group. Also in the body of work is Like Mother Like Daughter, a performance piece and now a group of photographs that I made with my mother, and Hate Begins at Home, an installation piece in which LMLD is projected.

Claire Oswalt: Peril in Perfection

The web browser dwarfs the actual scale of these mixed-media marionettes by Claire Oswalt. I initially mistook them for detailed illustrations on cut-out paper, but a closer look revealed they are actually enormous drawings on top of paper adhered to machined wood. Lots more great stuff in her portfolio. (via the fox is black)

Federico Uribe

January 7, 2011

I am flabbergasted. Somehow in my ventures around the internet I have never stumbled onto the work of Federico Uribe. Born in Bogota, Colombia, in 1962, Federico Uribe lives and works in Miami. He uses thousands, nay, millions and billions of tiny common objects to create some of the most elaborate sculpture I have ever seen. (via nytimes.com)
