    This is really cool. Except that it says paintings by Holton Rower and theres mostly one lady doing all the pouring -_-

      It’s always about the person with the vision behind the project. It’s why we associate a director as the creator of a film, though hundreds of people work on them.

    We know exactly what happens when you pull a lot of color one after each other on a surface like this, but it is amazing how we can not stop watching this and keep being so fascinated about the result…so simple but so effective, specially on a big surface…it looks great…

    Many big artists have other people do the production work.

    I really love it.
    It’s hypnotic and as someone has said even if we all know the result of adding colors to eachother makes, it works.

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

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!
