    Definitely one of my favorites
    love the colors and perspective

    I love the mix of geometric shapes and lines with the textured strokes and layering. The dark colours and red really play with your thoughts on what the paintings are trying to tell you. I get the sense that all is not right with the people in the images, a sort of ghostly feel in some and the feeling of death in others. Really interesting pieces though, I’d love to see them in a gallery so I could study them better.

    The 4th painting… A kind of island bursting out from a blood ocean… I’d like to see it in real. Must be quite spectacular!

    What you don’t get from these photos is the pretty thick ‘gel’ glazes he uses. All of the red and black is thick layers of gel paint, with the lines and lighter areas masked off when this is applied. Picture 5 shows this in particular

    Damn. I want to be in your mind.

  • willem

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
