Marlene Dumas

I finagled my friends at Phaidon to give me a sneak peek at the new Marlene Dumas book (comes out in December), I just didn’t expect them to mail out all 240 pages. Her work is interesting to me because she chooses to paint from magazine clippings and other “stock” images rather than from life.

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
