Artist Crush: Sara Falli

Monday, March 24, 2014

Such beautiful, lush, emersive work by Sara Falli. It’s striking that there are so many women artists making exquisite work in watercolor, Falli included. It seems like a renaissance for the medium.

Artist Crush: Vanessa Michalak

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Painter Vanessa Michalak lives in the Boston area. Her work recently appeared in New American Paintings Issue 110.

“Ideas about escapism and adventure are explored… Unexpected color and inventive brushwork blend representation with abstraction, constructing worlds that are dreamlike yet familiar… Figures move through forests and viewers are forced to make their way through overgrown paths. Particular structures within the landscape allude to impermanence. The paintings become a reflection of my inner restlessness and my longing to reconnect with nature.” – artist statement

Artist Crush: Stanislav Ginzburg

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Photographs and sculpture by Brooklyn artist Stanislav Ginzburg.

“My still life work explores the universality of biology by drawing parallels between insect anatomy and various types of flora as well as questioning the possibility of organic forms outside our planet. My self–portraits examine the fraught relationship between this seemingly interconnected natural world and our increasingly detached state of life.
.
I first became aware of the morphological similarities between different species of plants and insects while studying vintage botanical charts… I started translating these flat shapes into three–dimensional digital sculptures: a frog’s cranial nerve resembling a blossoming stem, a moth’s sensory system parodying a fern, a honey queen bee’s reproductive organs flowering atop a windowsill like a potted plant…”
