Zdzislaw Beksinski <– was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor who is best known as a fantasy artist. Beksinski executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his ‘fantastic realism’ period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, post-apocalyptic environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksinski’s later paintings. Beksinski was murdered in 2005. (via Wikipedia)

Love Scenes by Andy Weiner (b.1959 Edinburgh, Scotland) ‘ These photographic tableaux were made between 1988-1989. Barbie Doll, Ken Doll and He-Man provided faces and identities for these preadolescent adults. The unawakened Barbie, inevitably marries Ken. but a seed of independence is growing and she discovers He-Man. She divorces Ken and marries He-Man. But, He-Man is an impetuous hungry child, bent on domination. ‘

Dream in Conflict

‘Dream in conflict’ by artist Liu Jianhua at Galleria Continua in Italy. ‘Liu Jianhua’s work is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and in the dynamics of a rapidly changing nation, where there is a need to find an artistic idiom capable of expressing and formalizing the complex phase of economic and social transformation that China is currently undergoing. At the same time, a central concern remains the desire to develop further by engaging with a broader international context. Liu Jianhua was born in Ji’an, in the Chinese province of Jianxi, in 1962. He lives and works in Shanghai.’

Lou Zhenhong’s Dwarf Series borrows from the ubiquitous vinyl toy vernacular, though there remains nothing cute or cool about these sculptures. Their faces distorted, twisted as though viewed through a carnival mirror, the figures are at once whimsical and saddening in their caricature of everyday occupations and the quest for individuality in the world’s most populous continent. ‘ Link here.
