Share This.Painter Shawn Huckins continues his clever onslaught of social media satire with his latest series, The American __tier. Marrying the prestige of fine art with the casual grammatical uncouthness of social media, Huckins flaunts a unique brand of artistic humor–not to mention a great amount of skill and technique.

Share This.KwangHo Shin captures the complexity of human emotion with his latest series of abstract portraiture. Sacrificing detail for substance, KwangHo Shin purposefully obscures the facial features of the subject in order to convey the intricacy of human emotion.  The clashes of paints are an ideal metaphor for the human psyche.

Share This.A glorious fucking mess. Those are the first four words that come to mind when looking at Sean Norvet‘s work. Surrealistically grotesque and rich with cartoonish detail, Norvet’s pieces are an all out assault on perception and anatomical logic. Creating zany, cluttered environments and replacing facial features with food and other objects, his work falls somewhere between Dali and the Garbage Pail Kids. It is a welcomed chaos that Read More

Share This.Nothing says unconventional in a piece of artwork like obstruction of the face. Clare Elsaesser is all about the flowers and could care less about you trying to read the emotion of the painting through the eyes of the subject. Elsaesser coaxes you into playing a cheeky guessing game, urging you to wonder about the face hidden behind a vibrant army of flowery dashes. Born in Pasadena, California, Elsaesser Read More

Share This.May is bringing a throng of brilliant new shows, one of them being James Gortner‘s The Lovers at Lyons Wier. Gortner’s first solo exhibition in New York City, The Lovers  is culmination of two years worth of work that is heavily inspired by his relationship with Carolina Palmgren–amongst other things. After taking in some of the work and marveling at Gortner’s technique, we got the chance to speak with Gortner and curator, Read More

Share This.Human beings often think of themselves as separate from animals. We act as if we have nothing in common, as if we do not share some of the same physical features and societal tendencies. We often deem our actions as “natural” while citing animals for “odd behavior”. Our unrighteous separatism could be considered a slap in the face, not only to the animals we look down upon, but to Read More

Share This.These charming animal portraits from Erik Krenz almost make us forget that it’s biting cold outside. Being that Krenz is from Minneapolis, he knows a thing or two about the winter blues. If you’re interested in getting prints, head over to Krenz’s shop.

Share This.Clare Elsaesser‘s paintings possess an intimate nature that invokes pangs of love and familiarity. In Elsaesser’s paintings, the star is not the person being obstructed by the pillow, but the pillow itself. It is a clever role reversal that put an inanimate object in a well deserved spotlight.
