According to Korean tradition, artisans have a habit of destroying and discarding imperfect pieces. Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
Artist Carol Inez Charney applies a painterly approach to her photo-based work, rephotographing images through water coated glass so as to purposefully obscure the composition, creating a juxtaposition between abstraction and realism. More images from “Interior Landscape” below.
Belfast-born, Brooklyn-based artist Oliver Jeffers combines classical landscape and seascape paintings with technical measurements in a beautiful series. More images from Measuring Land and Sea below. Also, check out video of Jeffers discussing his wonderful Dipped Painting project over at Booooooom TV if you haven’t already!
