Beyond bizarre coloured Pencil and charcoal drawings from Eric Yahnker stuffed with pop culture and political references. Eric Yahnker is represented by Ambach & Rice in Seattle and there’s a new print available through Exhibition A.
Rayon thread, Graphite and colored pencil line drawings and sculptures from Kansas City based Artist Anne Lindberg. “My sculpture and drawings inhabit a non-verbal place resonant with such primal human conditions. Systemic and non-representational, these works are subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive.” Anne Lindberg will be having a solo exhibition at the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago in September.
Labour intensive sculptures made from cardboard, cable ties and match sticks by Irish Artist Niall de Buitléar. Niall de Buitléar based at the Temple Bar Gallery and Studios has exhibited at the Wexford Arts Centre; 126, Galway; and The Lab, Dublin and most recently at ‘None Went Mad…None Ran Away’ in the Rubicon Gallery, Dublin.
Elegant sculpture, drawing and woodcuts made from nature and found objects by Connecticut based Artist Bryan Nash Gill. Bryan’s Dendrochronology themed work is all hand made using timber sourced nearby his studio. “Ink is rolled out and a piece of handcrafted washi paper is placed over the print block. Pressing little by little with his fingertips, Bryan imprints the texture of the wood on the surface of the paper.” Ash & Milk
Some playful hand made type from Australian tactile typographer Dominique Falla. Dominique uses ingenious and in some cases massively time consuming ways to define positive and negative spaces in her typography.
“Dominique Falla works in a variety of tactile mediums and combines digital creation with analogue output for exhibition and publication.”
I really like the simple concept of ‘Shared Vision… Wspólna Wizja…’ made for an exhibition of Dominique’s work in Poland. When viewed from one angle of the concertina reads “Shared Vision…” and from the other it reads “Wspólna Wizja…” which translates as “Shared Vision…”. Watch the video below which documents the process from design sketch to final product of a birthday card project last year.
Beautifully Dark and bizarre hand drawn work from Seoul, Korea and New York based artist Seungyea Park (Spunky Zoe). Seungyea works by drawing circles with ball point pen and acrylic paint on acid free paper. Have a look at the images below of her studio to get an idea of the scale of these pieces. They’ll set you back $10,000 through Saatchi Online.
“I am trying to look at two monsters which is inside of me, and the other is outside of me. My paintings are like battlefields in which these monsters are struggling”
“His work strives to create a natural bond between diverse disciplines, including illustration, graphic design, animation and crafts.”
Gaetan Billault’s work is currently on show at the FTLO exhibition at Gallery One Dublin.
Beautiful emotive work from Oakland based Artist / Drummer / Graphic Designer Brett Amory. Brett Amory’s paintings depict people in transit, everyday acts, waiting for a bus or train, undefined moments of time between events, the pregnant moment.
“Elements of the compositions provide an outward echo of the inner states of the figures. By reducing the elements of the painting as far as possible, a frozen moment is extended.” Brett Amory
Prints of Brett Amory’s work are available through ‘Thinkspace Gallery’ and ‘5 Pieces Gallery’. In 2011 Brett Amory has had solo exhibitions at the ‘Jonathan LeVine Gallery New York’, and ‘Gallery AD’.
