Acid-washed decadence, iridescent apathy, nihilism that lingers like the more detailed aspects of a dream better off forgotten—in lurid color, 非 depicts the foes of hope and happiness, sarcastically blithe digital colors running like watercolors into slight chromatic aberrations that give the works a feeling of being portraits of the ghosts of torpid inner turmoil beginning to dominate outer life.

Creating a spectacular and invasive Gordian Knot, Henrique Oliveira plays with Palais de Tokyo’s architecture, allowing a work that combines the vegetal and the organic to emerge. The building itself becomes the womb that produces this volume of “tapumes” wood, a material used in Brazilian towns to construct the wooden palisades that surround construction sites.By Henrique Oliveira
I really love this.

Joe Forkan’s The Lebowski Cycle is a series of paintings and drawings exploring layered narratives, using masterpieces of western art and the Coen Brothers’ film The Big Lebowski as a point of departure. You can see what paintings each of the works are based on at Joe Forkan’s Blog.
The Big Lebowski is best.

Also, pics off my phone because the scanner is inoperable and pics of my drawings skew the imperfections.
Between Spanx and face lifts, Western culture is obsessed with normalizing the body to fit into a mold deemed more attractive or more “correct.” British artist Jonathan Yeo uses his talent for photorealistic portraiture to explore the way that people subject themselves to plastic surgery in an effort to chase eternal youth and beauty. Painted primarily in beige tones, the works are at once peaceful and grotesque. Women’s faces appear placid and relaxed, but perhaps only under the effects of surgical anesthesia. Gracefully painted bodies are marked with lines for future incisions. Take a look at some of his latest works, images courtesy of the artist.
Huguette Despault May stumbled across and old piece of Korean War era rope that inspired a beautiful body of work entitled the Hawser Series. May’s knotted and twisted black and grey rope drawings are metaphors used to represent overwhelming feelings of every day tension and frayed nerves. She works with an exaggerated scale to enhance the viewer’s encounter with these meticulous renderings. Each of the works in the Hawser Series are between 50 to 70 inches in height. The Hawser rope that May had hanging in her studio while creating this work is very large and heavy. It is 12 inches in circumference and weighs about 75 pounds.
