I had the pleasure of visiting the KAWS exhibit at the Mary Boone Gallery, located in the heart of Chelsea, NY. The exhibit features three wooden statues, each over eighteen tall and nearly reaching the ceiling of the gallery. One piece, titled Along The Way, features two figures paired together, while the third piece, standing alone, is titled At This Time. The central motif of the exhibit revolves around loss, grief, and consolation.
Some well known and not so well known Jeff Wall photographs. It’s so important to show more than just the popular works-kind of like listening to the whole album versus listening to only the single. There is so much more to a photographer than just a few good photographs.
Look at these awesome collage-style portraits by Chilean artist Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo. He mixes water color with digital effects to produce these layered pieces. The illustrations range from portraits to musicians to anatomy to animals.
Currently, he’s working on a collaborative project called ’Angry People’, in which he recreates portraits of, yes you guessed it, angry people. You can submit your photo and he’ll send you his colorful interpretation.
