In his work entitled The Visual Topography of a Generation Gap Brooklyn-based artist Daniel Bejar made a copy of his apartment key and then made a copy of that key, on and on until a topography of the series was created.

Sculptural Book Ads for Dutch Book Week

March 17, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A series of print ads for Dutch Book Week by Van Wanten Etcetera. This years theme was the “autobiography”, so 3D portraits of Anne Frank, Vincent van Gogh, Louis van Gaal and Kader Abdollah were created from books as centerpieces for the ad campaign. Despite how striking the ads are I have to admit that they were digitally produced, and in an age when anything can be realistically created with computers I tend to get more excited about the real thing, like the works of Julia Feld. That said, the artists for this campaign clearly spent lots of time focusing on the fine details, as even the text used on the pages came from the actual books. Digital or not, this is a lovely campaign. (via behance)

Christopher Jobson

New work from Kate MccGwire who uses thousands of meticulously placed feathers to create sweeping, undulating sculptures that spill from pipes, fireplaces, and the cracks in walls like great avian oil spills. See this latest work at Soho gallery Pertwee Anderson & Gold through March 24. Don’t Panic has a great interview.

The Skewed Sculptures of Evan Penny

March 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Do not adjust this blog post, and no I didn’t have an accident in Photoshop. This is the recent work of Canadian artist Evan Penny who creates stretched and skewed sculptural portraits that tower over 9 feet tall. Some of his other work is actually hyper-realistic, in that he uses silicone and other materials to mimic the texture of skin and hair down to the detail of every last follicle on a large scale. In 2007 Penny began working with an advanced 3D scanning process that allows him to skew objects virtually and then print them in foam using a rapid prototyping method, using the resulting framework as a base for the rest of the sculpture. Awesome stuff.

Vinyl LP Birds

March 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New York artist Paul Villinski is seemingly obsessed with flight. It has driven him to personally man the cockpits of paragliders and sailplanes and it permeates his artwork which ranges from elegant installations of butterflies made from recycled beer cans and wheelchairs converted to airplanes. The above images are from a 2010 installation called Diaspora in which he crafted dozens of vinyl LP records into a flock of dispersing birds. (via domestica)
