Artist Crush: Susanna Bauer

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Susanna Bauer is an artist originally from Germany living in Cornwall, in the UK. I discovered her ethereal, dreamy (for a minimalist like me) artwork from American Craft’s Bonus Issue.

“Although small in scale, each transformed leaf becomes an engaging miniature sculpture. It is hard to look at these pieces and not be mesmerized. The idea that something so small, fragile and insignificant as a leaf becomes the foundation of a sculpture challenges expectations and holds the viewer’s attention.” – Scott Rothstein, Hand/Eye magazine

Artist Crush: Adrian Landon Brooks

Friday, October 10, 2014

Adrian Landon Brooks has great new work in a show on Grayduck.

“In many ways, I am still creating the same simple and effective images I made when I was a kid. Traditional folk art has been the primary focus for most of my adult life. The emphasis on a single bold line or minimal color pallet continues to serve as a constant challenge. When I strip a painting down to its bare bones it helps me think more intently about the impact of each line or stroke.”

Artist Crush: bradley wood

Monday, October 6, 2014

Bradley Wood is a voyeur of sorts; since moving to the suburbs he has feverishly painted imagined scenes of his unknown posh neighbors. He has a solo show at Parts Gallery opening this week.

“I was living in an artist’s loft space in Brooklyn with my wife and newborn daughter when the owner decided to convert the building into a luxury condo… We ended up moving into a modest mid-century home in a town filled with bankers and lawyers and diplomats… Many afternoons, I found myself walking among the virtual mansions right outside my door. I began to fixate on them, my imagination going wild as I wondered about the people inside, my neighbors.”                –  artist statement
