Think you're special?

Photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 16 years. They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people’s attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity.

Handwoven Snapshots

Inspired by the internet generation and the images presented by its people, artist Erin M Riley makes these fantastic handwoven tapestries. She works with imagery from Google image search and Facebook, blowing them up into cartoons for her tapestries and weaving them on a Macomber floor loom with wool. These pieces are presented as traditional tapestries of snapshots which depict a generation of excess and confusion. Be careful with your snapshots and have a nice weekend!

The Carpenters

The Havana-based collective Los Carpinteros has created some of the most important work to emerge from Cuba in the past decade. Their carefully crafted works use humor to exploit a visual syntax that sets up contradictions among object and function 
as well as practicality and uselessness.

Egg tempera and walnut ink...

... and other natural ingredients are some of the stuff American artist, Allyson Mellberg, uses in her drawings of beautifully deformed and yet playful characters who carry a proud demeanor in their abnormalities. A striking color palette that is wholly her own. And edible...? For sale at Cinders Gallery. That's all for this week – have a nice weekend!
