The Vampire Furniture

Fascinated by vampire pop culture, Canadian artist Carmela Laganse created a line of furniture perfect for blood-letting. The collection was recently on view at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto in an exhibition titled "Breaking Boundaries." Carmela Laganse's conceptual artwork revolves around communication, perception and the impact of popular visual culture on our thinking and behavior. The vampire furniture pieces are made out of ceramic, textiles and wood. The names for each work disturbingly relate to food consumption. Have a blood-letting weekend!Via ApartmentTherapy.

Urban Landscapes

I'm a big fan of these graphically beautiful and poetic photos by Oakland, California based artist Rob Fracisco. He mostly photographs “spots” that are in a period of transition, highlighting these temporary locations to reveal the beauty of the ever-changing California urban landscape.

Impressive Installations

German artist Clemens Behr uses the simplest materials to create complex ephemeral architectures, which fill gallery spaces with origami-like structures. Working with recycled materials and basic geometric forms, Behr dreams up installations that result in subtle confusions between 2D painting and 3D objects. I had a hard time choosing so remember to check out more of his work here.

Playful and Colorful

Sorry for the irregular posting this week – too much travelling and too little time! Hopefully it will be better next week when I'm back in Denmark. In the meantime I hope you will enjoy the 100% analog collages by Chilean artist Virginia Echeverria Whipple as much as I do. Check out more of her work here and have a playful and colorful weekend!

Tick Tock ...

I like the cuckoo clocks by Stefan Strumbel. Strumbel takes objects from folk art that refer to the clich├ęd notions of home, folklore and popular piety fx the traditional cuckoo clock and exaggerates these objects with elements of urban art and pop art. By doing so, he puts these objects into a new, partly provocative context. Via Ignant.

ABC ...

Hmm – kids and N.Y.C is not a great combo when it comes to art scouting since there is not really any art in the playgrounds neither in the toy-stores to scout... So I'll just do what I normally do: web-scouting. I'm not really into the "alphabet-trend" I have noticed on several blogs lately: letters made of fx pasta, rubberbands etc. I just don't really see the point. But with the alphabet by Therese Vandling it's different. Each letter is artistically done with wit and a sense of humour. Therese is a London based graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker who works across many different mediums including collage, line drawing and screen-printing. Also check out Close Your Eyes And Think Of England, Make or Skin Magazine amongst her other work.
