Can something be so unbelievably ridiculous that it is actually good? That is what Ashley Morris’s illustrations are to us. We just simply cannot ignore them.

Ambitious Two Year Street Art Project Tackles Suburbia

Ian Strange: SUBURBAN from Ian Strange [KID ZOOM] on Vimeo.

Australian artist Ian Strange‘s ambitious project two year in the making is difficult to pin down.  SUBURBAN isn’t quite installation, photography, performance, or video art – its really more than all of these.  The project is really Ian Strange’s investigation of and interaction with the idea of suburbia.  The sidewalk, front yard, middle class, ubiquitous rows of homes have grown with a generation of young people, and now with a second and third.  The neighborhoods and houses themselves have become symbols of something beyond their function that Strange’s work seems to seek and find.  Check out the video to get a preview of the upcoming exhibit.

Anoka Faruqee’s Infinite Space Paintings

Anoka Faruqee lives and works in New Haven, CT. She meticulously paints large representations of three-dimensional color fields. Many of these works feature a reoccurring six pointed asterisk or three pointed tripod rendered countless times by hand without the use of rulers. The shapes derive from Islamic tile geometry which she describes as “…someone centuries ago spent a good amount of time playing with a ruler and a compass, I can lift from that tradition a kind of readymade handmade pixel.” Combining mathematics with manipulated shapes she evokes digital technology visuals and leads the viewer into the infinite.

Remedios Varos AT Frey Norris

It’s not often that we post about deceased artists but a show about the imaginatvie and bizarre work of surrealist Remedios Varo merits a mention.

The first exhibition of Remedios Varo to ever take place in the western United States, Indelible Fables at Frey Norris illuminates the ever-imaginative and prescient world of this deceased surrealist artist. Spanish born Varo certainly died prematurely, by heart-attack in 1963, but in a short career she had acquired a cult-like following among friends in Mexico City, her adopted home. Many of these friends were involved in an informal investigation into esoteric religion and the teachings of George Ivanovich Gurdjieff and his student Peter Ouspensky. As part of this soteriological pursuit, with close friend, the celebrated English artist Leonora Carrington, Varo created some of the most inventive painted scenarios of any of the artists associated with surrealism. Varo would remain something of a marginalized, but popular figure in Latin American art right through the 1990’s, when a solo exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC elevated global awareness of her work and in part catalyzed an ever accelerating level of scholarship and market demand. View the show at Frey Norris from January 19th-February 25th.


Deniz Ozuygur


Deniz Ozuygur’s pieces appear to be completely unconnected explorations. However, the common thread uniting Ozuygur’s varied and imaginative work is that each piece embodies a different character. These characters have their own stories and musings, often derived from the artist’s own past. From Funyuns to balloons, Ozuygur is certainly not afraid of experimentation.

Spectacular Ice Castles Captured In Hyper Lapse Documentary

Looking like a scene from Lord of the Rings, the Ice Castles of Lincoln, New Hampshire are the result of some very talented artists. Their work has been captured by Filmmaker Julian Tryba in collaboration with time lapse artist Michael Sutton in a new documentary called Frozen Fortress. The film features not only the amazing work of the ice sculptures but an innovative technology which captures the activity in a sped up time lapse format. In the film, we first witness the ice castles at dawn sparkling like gigantic petrified crystals. Once night falls and under multi-colored lights, the glass-like structures change dramatically.  The hyper lapse technology enables us to see the same environment come alive as ravers flock to the scene at dusk to experience the castles’ unique beauty in a club-like setting.

Each winter, thousands of icicles are grown and carved into amazing sculptures. Through a process which sprays water on metal, the frozen material is transported daily to build the magnificent site-specific collection of motifs, paths and caves. Artists continue building on the structure during the run and ultimately create an incredible Matterhorn-like structure. The scope is deceiving and in Tryba’s film takes on a much grander scale.

The castles are visited daily by hundreds of people during the winter months in four U.S. states (New Hampshire, Vermont, Utah and Minnesota). They have been the unique setting for music videos and now a well made documentary. (via creators project)
