    first thing that came to mind lookin at the 3rd one down: chris van allsburg’s polar express

  • Parker

    What is this the Chronicles of NJ. Lovein the Detail… look at that ashtray.

  • Bolla

    Someone please tell me how long it took to complete one of those pieces.

  • Ian

    He can paint, but the subject doesn’t really do anything for me.

  • trip

    1.) what caught the attention of the guy in the blue?
    is he really listening?
    what was their conversation about?
    how long have they been there?
    what are there names?

    2.)why does he have that sort of haircut?
    what type brand of jeans are those and how expensive were they?
    why is he on the floor, is he high?
    where did he get that tattoo, how much did it cost?
    whats he thinking about?

    3.)what is she thinking about?
    is she waiting for someone?
    how many smokes and drinks of coffee have she had?
    what does she take in her coffee?
    is she looking at some one?

    4.)did he shave his mohawk that today?
    is that his last smoke, how much where his smokes, how long has he been smoking, is he going to quit?

    the questions are unimportant, but the painting are immortalizing to think that.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
