Miju Lee

Monday, April 11, 2016

Miju Lee is an artist based in Barcelona. Her style of representation is super unique. In the case of these portraits she has somehow shaped faces out of circles with the tiniest of mouths and hairdos that pool like liquid.

Artist Crush: Jessica Cannon

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Jessica Cannon was born in Brooklyn, where she lives and works today. Her work caught my eye in the latest New American Paintings which features artists from the Northeast. Jessica’s work plays in faded but still vibrant colors. It carries a very low-key, vacationy feel while some of these works seamlessly work in elements of urban life and technology without losing the sense of peace.

Laylah Ali

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Laylah Ali is a very well-known artist based in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Her Acephalous Series, which exhibited last year at Paul Kasmin Gallery, centers on her signature cartoon-like characters. Like all of Laylah Ali’s work, the simplicity and sense of innocence fades upon closer look. As the name suggests some of her characters are missing a head; like the villian Krang in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they have a head, or a brain, attached to the trunk of their body. The exchanges taking place in these paintings are unsettling, like something from a recurring dream.

Ceramics by Kristine Tillge Lund

Friday, March 18, 2016

These unusual ceramic objects are by Danish artist Kristine Tillge Lund. About the series Lund states, “The objects reside between biomorphic fantasy and formal organic exploration. From a distance you get the impression that each object’s complexity is casually organised, yet when you come closer you realise the meticulous system each object depends on… The natural looking rough surfaces and colours give you a feeling of a forest, again enhancing the organic expression.”
