Alex Kanevsky.

Alex Kanevsky’s skewed and emotive paintings evoke a sense of current day distortion commonly presented to us via failed transmissions, glitchy computer screens and other electronic fallacies while drawing on the inspiration of past masters from Impressionism and Cubism.  See more below:

Curator’s Monday 152 - Artist on Tumblr

Zeitguised by Henrik Mauler & Jamie Raap | on Tumblr (USA/Germany) - Birds

Founded in 2001 by American sculptor Jamie Raap and German architect Henrik Mauler, Zeitguised are a Berlin-based contemporary art studio exploring the frontier zone between digital abstraction and realism. Their ambiguously poetic work draws from the infinite recombination capacity of the internet’s crazed mashup culture, paired with the manipulation potential of digital imaging tools. Using seductive 3d animation, Zeitguised creates post-narrative modes of structural transformations, evoking mental states of manic order and complex instability. Precarious color relations and dysfunctional shape agglomerations inform sequential transfigurations. By playing with conventions of digitally manufactured images, the fake is emancipated from authenticity.

The cloud theme predominates the work of Zeitguised: a transitionary, metastable cluster that is nothing yet becomes anything, if only for a fleeting moment. A swarming system that shows symptoms of life and the agility of a connected organism, the cloud is a bastardization of the abstract and the real as a twitching borderline between fiction and concretization. In a post-anthropocentric motion, the cloud works postulate that the predictable merging of nano-, bio- and information technologies will render perpetually evolving shapes into real artifacts.

Currently at La Gaîté Lyrique until August 2014

Sagaki Keita.

Japanese artist Sagaki Keita creates his work by drawing thousands of child like cartoon characters - making each up as he goes - to create an overall familiar landscape or object.  The pieces can become hypnotizing while you look at them, trying to note every doodle that makes up the whole.  See more below:

Hilariously Photos of People Posed as If They Have Just Fallen by Sandro Giordano

instagram

Photographer Sandro Giordano has a darkly hilarious series on Instagram titled ‘In Extremis (bodies with no regret)’ featuring people posed as if they have just fallen. Meticulously-staged and styled, he captures his subjects in awkward and uncomfortable-looking positions while surrounded by their belongings, always with an object in hand. According to Giordoan, the series comments on the willingness of people to place their material possessions before their own safety. He was inspired to start it after a bicycle accident where he lost 30% of the function in his right hand, because he didn’t let go of the object he was holding as he fell.
