thread drawings

23Feb13

Unfoldings is the title of a series of thread drawings by artist Allison Watkins. Check these out! She applies the thread to fabric in a variety of methods, from hand stitching to machine embroidery. While I like how detailed some areas are rendered, I think I like how the drawings are intentionally undone most of […]

I could not find much information on artist Elena Cermaria, but I did find these paintings of hers. They have a darker, dream-like quality about them – especially those with heavily blue/green color palettes. The third image really stands out with its baroque color palette and lighting. I like seeing the varying colors throughout her […]


Penelope

I absolutely love this installation by Brazilian artist, Tatiana Blass. Titled Penelope, referencing Homer’s Odyssey, the work consists of an insane amount of red yarn, a loom, and a red carpet. Penelope is the name of Homer’s wife. While Homer was away, she remained faithful by keeping herself occupied by working on a burial shroud […]


These paintings are by Los Angeles based artist, Jeff Ramirez. They remind me of parties, more specifically – of the photos I used to take at parties. For still images in oil, they suggest a lot of conversation and laughing to be going on within the imagery. They’re a lot of fun. Look at those […]


Water has not been rendered quite as clear to me than in these paintings of Swedish artist Linnea Strid. She paints individuals (often self-portraits) submerged in water or covered with water. For such a difficult thing to paint on a technical aspect – it’s painting a transparent thing with very-solid-oils after all – she executes […]


Artist/ illustrator Anna Higgie has many intriguing projects on her website, but I found this commissioned project for a Berlin nightclub, Crush, in 2008 to be particularly blog-worthy. This is namely because I like seeing a good site-specific installation…and I also am comforted knowing that an artist can get paid to make kick-ass drawings in […]


I’ve had one of these paintings as my desktop background for months, so thought it’s about time I shared them here. These digital paintings are created by Field, a studio for digital art and graphic design in London, and are part of a series of 10,000 digital paintings. Most of their work is derivative of […]


semblance

Semblance is the name of a 2009 series of drawings by artist Hellovon. His mixing of realism with abstraction makes for a dreamy feel to his work, which is furthered by the pretty girls he uses as a recurring subject. I am overwhelmingly impressed by his graphite skills; the blur-effect presented feels more like paint […]
