Cakeland

Cakeland by Scott Hove is a sculptural installation resembling a collection of perfect delicious cakes– wall mounted, hanging and standing– a walk-through cake environment complete with its own lighting. It is a sweet refuge, an endless kaleidoscopic landscape of cake, a respite from the grinding realities of the outside world. (Photos via Hi-Fructose)

Skot Olsen

” While growing up in Connecticut, Skot Olsen and his parents spent their summers sailing up and down the coast of New England and all over the West Indies. It was on these long trips that Olsen developed his love for the culture and history of sea-faring people. Whale watches and scuba diving cultivated an interest for the strange things that live in the sea such as giant squid, which are the subject of many of his paintings. Small harbor towns and islands provided backdrops for many of the artist’s formative years and the people he met there left an impression on him that is now visible in his current series of work. ” (Read on..)

Check out Jessica Dalva’s sculptures, paintings and drawings. Her works are quite strange but I think that is what I like about ’em.

” Maybe it’s due to my heritage or growing up in the East Los Angeles area or being a born again Christian all of which make me up as an individual and an artist that the activist is in there somewhere. I feel compelled to speak of things that I read about or hear about or experience through life as artwork. The meaning of each piece is very important to me and since I use imagery sometimes metaphorically or symbolically to describe my subjects I like to attach a paragraph description to the name of each piece when it’s shown in galleries. As much as I enjoy that people appreciate the artwork, my hope is that they appreciate the meaning as well when they read it. It’s the point and the reason I make this kind of artwork.” – Carlos Huante

Fabrizio Cosenza

Go visit the portfolio site of artist Fabrizio Cosenza from Italy who emailed last week to show us his work. Not a lot of work on his site yet but hopefully they’ll be more of these sideways headed girls up there in the future.

I want to take this time to tell those lovely people who emailed me their work that haven’t gotten a reply from me yet to please be patient. I am behind on my emails, but I’ll catch up eventually.

Korehiko Hino was born in Ishikawa and currently an instructor at Tama University of Fine Art. ‘ After graduating from the Art Studies Division of the Tsukuba University Graduate School with a specialization in Western painting, Hino has built up a solid reputation both in Japan and abroad for his depictions of expressionless human forms – difficult to make out whether they are adults or children – that embody the anxiety that all of us in the contemporary era sense in a vague, nebulous way. ‘ (via Art Tower Mito)
