Haroshi

I like skateboards.  So does Japanese artist Haroshi.  He makes dimensional art by carving discarded decks into colorful striations of form.

Mathilde Roussel

People like to know where their food comes from, even if they only bother to trace the line as far as to say Chick-Fil-A.  But Mathilda Roussel’s living sculptures place us a little closer to the food cycle then most people would like to accept.  Someday I’ll feed the plants, then the plants will feed you.

Frieke Janssens

It’s hard to understand why smoking is considered attractive.  The smell follows you endlessly, it’s costly, and best of all it kills you.  Frieke Janssens series, “Smoking Kids,” portrays children puffing away at their favorite vice in various cutting garb of the past.  Ripe with visual commentary on the fuss many have raised over the spree of smoking bans popping up around the globe, Janssens series recalls us back to the real reason.

Akiko Oue

 

Ever get bored with your earrings and wish your favorite pair was a just a bit more versatile?  Probably not, but for the rare few out there who need a touch more control over every aspect of their apparel comes Mag・net・ic.  A completely customizable set of earrings composed of pastel, powder coated magnets by Japanese designer Akiko Oue.  Add, subtract, dangle or cluster; each magnet is strong enough for active/everyday wear and changes to suit your mood.

Beata Sasik

 

Beata Sasik’s oil heavy canvases remind me of the time I left a roll of starbursts in my backpack during a vacation to the beach.  Emboldened colors melt from one clump to the next creating a visceral menagerie that looks like I wish it tasted.  There’s a burst of color and dimension in each piece that’s so inviting I wish I could do more than just look at each one.  But for now I guess looking will do.

Seung Yong Song

Brilliantly modern and space saving furniture by Seung Yong Song.

Robyn Cumming

Woman have been compared to all the beauties of nature for as long as poetry has been getting men laid.  Robyn Cumming turns the comparisons into realities, a rose is a rose is a woman covered in flowers.

Bill Durgin

The human form has been a hallmark in the art world since man first started pressing his hands against cave walls.  But Bill Durgin’s photographic studies of the body work to separate identity from flesh.  His models contort themselves away from his lens until all that remains is a severed torso, a composite of muscle, a hunk of meat on the floor.  Subtracting a few limbs renders the models almost inanimate, they become a collection of sensuous contours instead of a collective individual.  Funny how easily ones identity can be removed.
