Artist Crush: Jodi Hays

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Jodi Hays is a painter based in Nashville, Tennessee. Her series Super Scraps is currently on Buy Some Damn Art, including the first two pieces below.

Of her series, Hays says “Super (dense) scraps (toss-offs) are influences that come from images (sight), spaces (body) and text (language) we process. Interior textiles, exterior structures, toddler conversations, janky concrete slabs– are all deposited as a unified visual mass.”  - Artist Q/A.

Artist Crush: Marty Kelly

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Portraits by Marty Kelly from his series lesser spotted birds of paradise.

Throughout this body of paintings, Kelly’s fluid figurative forms and small open faces bare an enigmatic beauty that whispers of disquieting truths, of chaos on pause. Baudelaire saw in Goya’s ‘beautiful’ and ‘distorted’ figures, “a love of the ungraspable, a feeling for violent contrasts, for the blank horrors of nature and for human countenances weirdly animalized by circumstances.” Kelly in these paintings does not portray the vestiges of chaos; rather, he portrays the beautiful essence of being that remains intact despite circumstances. - Jane Ross
