    looks a bit like a rip off of Justin lee Williams paintings ??? I think he is based in N.Z or Australia too ?

    • mcgennisken

      Hey Kate, definitely take that as constructive criticism – Justin Williams has always been a big inspiration to me, along with marlene dumas, and there’s definitely some similarities – however I’m not ripping him off. I guess I feel if you dig deep enough these days, you’ll find similarities in a lot of peoples works. Thanks for the comment though! :)

      • Ringo Starr

        By the look of these paintings I can tell you were influenced by Omer Asik.

  • Jan McGennisken

    Original art works come from the heart.We interpret what we have seen, heard and admired in our lives and turn those things into pictures that please our own senses.
    Similarites may exist, but they are never the exact same workas others may have done because they are completely original brush stokes, combinations of colours, papers and ideas.
    it is no different to someone taking a musical tune but re writing different lyrics to it.

    Nice to see you here Ryan! I saw your artwork in a gallery shop in Manly and I liked it a lot straight away. Keep up the good work! :-)

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
