    Shit! These are good! They are so loose, yet incredibly tight at the same time . . . something I can never pull off. Nice colours too.

    There was a post here on BOOOOOOOOM recently that came across my rss feed, like i believe within the last month (not sure whether i was viewing them newest-oldest or vice versa at the time, but i saw it a couple days ago), and one of the images near the bottom of the individual blog-post was this typographical alphabet constructed out of horses and horse parts etc. Can anybody remember who the artist was? I’ve been combing my way back through recent posts one page at a time to no avail.

    what doesn’t come across here is the massive (i mean 10 ft tall paintings) scale that her paintings are. with that much detail.

    christa is part of a talent family, too. those palazollos are unstoppable!

    i really love the direction she is going in with these garbage portraits.

    one day i will own a christa painting when i can afford it!

      wow i had no idea they were that huge!

    just arrived via ffffound. really loving the fact that you are thinking abstractly about representational imagery and subject matter. not overly stated concepts give the viewer room to think. smart work for smart people.

Colourful Yet Catastrophic Photographs by Japanese Artist Yoshimitsu Umekawa

umekawa6

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
