Dancing Around the Bride


Marcel Duchamp — Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 3), 1912

The other day I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the Dancing Around the Bride show. There was a lot to take in from the exhibition. Two versions of Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase were at the show, which is a painting that I really like. It is thought-provoking with so much movement. Not much of what was displayed at the show can be found online other then this famous painting. John Jones did a series of ink on plastic pieces that were there that I wish I could find. But anyway, over all, it's an interesting show worth checking out.

Janet Jones







Janet Jones and her lovely collages. I liked her "Notations" series a lot. They're beautifully simplistic. Love the mixture of materials and mediums, as well as the minimal use of color.

Gehard Demetz


My Headphones Save My Life, 2006


Married to Myself, 2007


Your Monsters Are Just Like Mine, 2006

Demetz is an Italian artist who has become well-recognized for his wooden sculptures of children. His overall technique is incredible. The contrast between the rough textures to the softer surfaces along with the gaps and pieces fitting together creates a lot of discord and interest.

An interview with Dazed Digital reveals the artist's point of view:
"My sculptures transmit the awareness of becoming adults and thus losing, as Rudolf Steiner says, their ability to be able to “hear” their unconscious. They live with the burden of guilt transmitted from generation to generation, which does not belong to them. They are children who feel sad about not being able to really be children, but who have, on the other hand, the possibility of choosing to become adults, totally independently, thus freeing themselves little by little of all the influences transmitted by their ancestors. They are witness to all the effort involved in the process of growth and development, which is achieved through individual will and concentration."

Umbilical


Janine Antoni, 2000

A few weeks ago I went to visit the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, and checked out the museum while I was there. This piece caught my attention. It is a silver casting of family silverware, a negative impression of the artist's mouth, and her mother's hand holding the spoon.

"The work relates to Antoni's ongoing exploration of personal history, family relationships, and bonding and separation as equally important elements in forming one's identity."

Brilliant.

Imitosis


Andrew Bird (Four Tet Remix)

I'm usually not a fan of remixes. I don't really like the idea of them. Andrew Bird has his own awesome thing going on, but I think this remix of his song "Imitosis" is great.

Life Like Weeds


Modest Mouse

And we know that our hearts are just made out of strings to be pulled
Strings to be pulled
So you think you've figured out everything
But we know that our minds are just made out of strings to be pulled
Strings to be pulled

Fall, 2010

Antonio Santin is an artist based in Berlin. In many of his paintings he portrays females sprawled out in shadowed rooms, showing their vulnerability, or even despair. It is an interesting subject matter and point of view. Not to mention, he is great with pattern and detail.

No Love Lost


From Joy Division's 1978 EP, An Ideal For Living.

Holly Lynton

I love this photograph. It is from her series "Bare Handed". This is how she describes the series:

"To create these images, I sought out individuals who make themselves vulnerable in the face of nature and attempted to capture the meditative, transformative state they achieved while working with a potentially dangerous animal or in an uncomfortable environment."

Herakut



Herakut (hair-a-koot) is a collaborative street artist duo from Germany. I was recently introduced to their work, and I found it to be very inspiring. I love their dark, edgy style, as well as the scale of the art. It has such a presence.
