    Like a scrappy Uglow!

    Ok, despite reading this blog ever day for the last year or two i’ve never felt compelled to leave a comment until now. I love these so much… incredible.

  • lapetitefaon

    I’m in love. The heavy brushstrokes! the third is absolutely stunning, the blurring makes it still and moving at the same time!

  • tatong recheta torres

    i love alex’s works!

  • This work is just breathtaking!! ”up my alley” very,very worthy work. where can i see these pieces in person?

  • Alex has been a huge influence on my work for some time. Check out his “Painting in Progress” page on his site… good stuff. http://www.somepaintings.net/ProgressAlex.html

  • I don’t usually comment, but this is a must. I looked at these pieces for like 15 mins on my screen. I’m just caught up in this one. being an art fanatic i’ve seen some good pieces myself and this one definitely meets my expectations. I would love an artist statement for this one!

    cheers,
    shannon

    I am rather curious if his work inspired the paintings in Synecdoche, New York.

  • James

    Well, I just answered my own question… turns out not only did his work inspire the works in the film but he actually painted them!

    • haha good eye – i have to watch that film again

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
