    the detail of the trees arebeautifull and the sense of confusion/unbalance the perspective brings is interesting, I like the little port holes to other places but do think the random blobs and smears of paint are quite pointless

    I love these. I agree, the textures and perspective on the trees are amazing, but it’s a shame he didn’t pay the same attention to detail on the rest of the elements.

    i personally really like that there is only one or two fully realised areas in each painting

      Again again – hmmm it seems my comment is not showing??

      Brilliant paintings. I saw a show in London a few years back of Dröschers works – it included sculptures as well. And I loved both.
      Linked on to Dröscher´s homepage I found very informative texts. In the “Introducing” for Modern Painters – Martin Herbert writes : the painting is a bouillabaisse of techniques, from sharp realism to messy gestural marks.
      I mean I saw these paintings in real life – close up! This guy can paint – so he obviously chooses the different techniques and the different ways of leaving the images unfinished – as if for us to finish it ourselves in our mind. To me the smudges and doodles is simply a way of conducting the paintings rythm…. and it make perfect sense to me. Thanks for posting Jeff

    I don’t think that sense of confusion the perspective brings is aided by the smudges. Like a fly on a windshield, it can look really nice

    “Fly on a window shield” I like that very poetic :)

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
