These paintings by Judith Eisler are representations of film stills where real life abstractions, resulting from technological interference, take on a life of their own. The images create a loss of clarity while still allowing figurative aspects of the subjects to be derived by the viewer. To me, this gives these works of art a sense of motion that I thoroughly enjoy. Continue below to see even more.
Artist James Jean opened up the pre-sale on his new book XENOGRAPH yesterday and the art edition and box edition both immediately sold out. The first edition of the book is still available but will likely sell out as well. His previous book REBUS is one of my favourite books to look at so I had to order myself a copy of this one as well. If you wanna grab a copy jump over to James Jean’s store.
Here’s a video from a Japanese show about people repairing old things. This episode features Nobuo Okano, a man who has been restoring old books for more than 30 years, breathing new life into a customer’s old English-Japanese dictionary for his daughter.
This is so Japanese, I love it. Thanks to photographer Valerie Chiang for passing this along to me. Watch the clip below!
I meant to post this before the weekend – it’s time for a new month of art submissions! Thanks for submitting your work to the April Submissions post. As always thanks to all of you who take time to leave encouraging comments to artists who submit work, and please keep upvoting work you like!
These monthly posts are the best way to promote yourself! Works that I may not feel are a fit can still be seen, and artists can get some new visitors to their own personal sites regardless. Please share your work here during the month of May. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website. Please keep the image under 500kb, there is a bug that causes duplicate comments if the image is too large.
1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image (500kb or less) that represents your best work along with 1 link.
2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.
3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.
4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
