MY AMP GOES TO 11′s Top 5 Editors Picks of 2016

After my annual Top 11 post, I was asked what my personal favorites where for 2016. There are so many artists that I admire, and I found it very difficult to narrow down. I also purposely chose posts not included in the top 11. 

Here they are, in no particular order:

Sculptures by Massimiliano Pellet

Yung Cheng Lin

Paintings by Namgoong Whan

Wax sculptures by Francois Chaillou

Scenes from the short film World Of Tomorrow (2015) by Don Hertzfeld

Curator’s Monday 144

Simon Schubert (b.1976, Germany) - Reigen. Synthetic hair, plaster, Polyurthane foam, acrylic, fabric, metal, wood, leather (2009)

Simon Schubert is an artist based in Cologne, Germany. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp. Inspired by Surrealism as well as by Samuel Beckett, Schubert’s works imagine architectural settings, common situations and objects, whereas the materials he uses are either simple or sophisticated - white paper folded or mixed media arrangements. Some of his paper foldings entered the West Collection, Oaks, PA, while the Saatchi Collection, London, owns sculptural works in mixed media. In 2008, Schubert received the ZVAB Phönix Art Award for new-comers.

Tomoko Kashiki (b.1982, Japan)

The portraits Tomoko Kashiki creates are fragmented, and at times placed in a limiting space that traps the women within an intimate world of beauty, desire and dreams. Her aesthetic is reminiscent of Heian Buddhist paintings and Bijinga, pictures of beautiful women in pinewood gardens, a style derived from Kyoto, the city in which Kashiki was born and raised.

Although the flat, smooth texture and flowing lines may strike viewers as a broadly Japanese painting style, her own process is extremely unique. She creates paintings by overlapping layers and weaving accumulated scenes, fermenting them, erasing them, sanding them down and repainting the canvas. Through this process, she moderates her motifs and expressions to adjust to her initial idea of the painting. The sophisticated canvas is designed to erase time or any evidence of the artist’s hand, leaving a vivid impression much like a daydream. (src. Ota Fine Arts)
