(Image: Detlef "Dego" Gotzens, Perpetual rational space, 2013, Acrylic and charcoal on cradled panel, 33" x 33"; © Detlef "Dego" Gotzens) Detlef "Dego" Gotzens (b. 1952, Cologne, Germany) Since a very early age I was always drawn to Images, pictures, forms, lines and color, and instinctively felt very comfortable looking at art especially paintings with a sense of wonder and curiosity. I’m constantly in the process to find a visual language that seem to be always changing from one w... [more]

(Image: Vojtech Mica, Budka II.Kiosk II., 2010, beton/concrete, 230 x 110 x 110; © Vojtech Mica) Vojtech Mica (b. 1966, Prague) My work consists of parallel, seemingly disparate lines, which collide one with another and complement each other. Despite first sight, everything faces the certain defining of my sculpture form. I compose the space and the space forms me, myself. The seeming serenity of one form is the exact print of the Dionysian pole of another form. The viewer himself... [more]

by
Andy Vogt at Hap Gallery May 1st - May 31st
Posted 5/21/14

San Francisco-based artist Andy Vogt turns plywood and other salvaged wood into the stuff of sculptural perfection. But this is no polished, gleaming perfection—rather, a weathered, beaten-down beauty. He arranges strips of wood into dynamic, delightful compositions, as if he were deconstructing Sol LeWitt’s cubes and reconfiguring them to decorate a New England barn. The show’s most striking work, Sustained Decay, seems a direct translation of the nimbus beams radiating down on... [more]

5/8/14 Posted 5/8/14

photo via Famed artist, "body awareness" theorist, and Austria's "Grand Dame of painting" Maria Lassnig passed away earlier this week in Vienna at the age of 94. Lassnig, born in Austria in 1919, attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna during World War II and is known for her brushy paint strokes and brutal subject matter.

(Image: Helene Kippert, Crystalline body 2, 14/4/2010, Fractal Composite; © Helene Kippert) Helene Kippert (b. 1958, Sydney, Australia) I'm a fractal artist, working primarily with digital media to explore the interplay of form, energy and light. I use texture, colour and pattern as a way of breaking down our sense of identity with intellect and form, and reconnecting us to the sacred whole to which we all belong. Sometimes I begin with a drawing, adding a number of digital layers unti... [more]

via Itella Posti I need a Finnish pen pal. This fall Finland's postal service, Itella Posti, is releasing a new series of stamps paying homage to legendary homoerotic illustrator Touko Laaksonen aka Tom of Finland.
