It’s hard for me not to get lost starring at these photographs. Strange as that may sound, it is true. Thank you Marian Drew. Your work is just brilliant.
Coffee shop identity designed by Felix Lobelius for Kaffe – a coffee shop started by 4 swedes. The handwritten charcoal aesthetic derives from the personal connection every person has with their type of coffee. This is reflected in a direct style of communication with business cards, bags, take away cups ect. personally adressing the customer.
” I resurrect things that have been killed off… My work is all about the potential of materials – even when it looks like they’ve lost all possibilities. ” – Cornelia Parker (English sculptor and installation artist)
‘ Elsie Kaganâ€™s work fuses painting as a spontaneous, gestural continuation of the body with an approach that suggests the mediumâ€™s historical role as arbiter of perceived and idealized realities. Her paintings overlay multiple vantage points that seem to imply dense, open-ended narratives and reveal often-contradictory spatial perspectives. ‘

‘ My sculptures of scale models explore vulnerability. Employing exacting construction, these vessels, figures, and environments are suspended in unending moments. Vessels appear armed yet impotent. Characters find themselves caught in curious irresolvable situations. Environments are barren, containing subtle evidence of unexplained occurences. Exposed substrate, raw materials, or armature suggest the process of making. This interrupts the narrative, and the object acknowledges itself as â€œpropâ€ or â€œprototypeâ€. Artifice functions as a storytelling device, reframing the narrative. As dilemmas enter into these model worlds, mythic problems of self-identity, isolation, and vulnerability emerge. These miniatures allow for a safe controlled analysis of inner fears and private anxieties. ‘ – Mike Peter Smith , Born 1972 in Hemet, California. Lives and works in New York.
