Pop Icon Mashups By Dave MacDowell.

Dave MacDowell is a self-taught artist who creates some extremely detailed works centered around pop culture icons. Fast food brands, movie actors, and commonplace logos show up time and time again in his pieces, but that doesn’t really mean that his works are boring or derivative. They’re chaotic, colored in otherworldly hues, and always telling...Read...

Ethereal, Whimsical: Tran Nguyen’s Paintings

I just wanted to take my art posting goofiness down a notch and feature some works by someone who really captures beauty in poetic ways. Tran Nguyen‘s sensitive soul is highlighted with her tender, emotional pieces which utilize subtle hints of patterning to accent plain portraits.

Alison Scarpulla‘s Realms Of Wonder.

I get a little bit tird of hipster art photography sometimes (not to say that Miss Scarpulla is necessarily a hipster). You know the type — the type that takes over all Tumblr pages ad nauseum, with bleached out colors of pretty people, set against sunshiny backdrops. Well, they’re pretty photos, but they’re generally pretty...Read...

Patte Loper’s Magical Naturalism

Patte Loper has a diverse assortment of work on her website, but her pieces are united by an intersection of naturalist technique and a sense of almost unsettling magic. Many of Patte’s pieces depict animals wandering through abandoned human landscapes, and the viewer is left with a gaping sense of suspension and stillness. In the...Read...

Blake Haygood‘s Almost Tangible Objects

Blake Haygood’s paintings are fields of soft washes strewn with shapes that seem almost ready to coalesce into identifiable objects. Walking the line between the organic and the mechanical, Blake commands our attention by presenting us with subjects that promise to become recognizable if only we stare at them long enough. It’s a bit of...Read...

Oils On Linen For Natalya Hughes!

Natalya Hughes‘ current series of works feel subtractive — as though she is actively painting out important portions of existing paintings as opposed to building off of nothing. Hughes always manages to capture a good sense of abstract shape through the use of negative space, and the images below seem to utilize prints of figures...Read...

Lily McElroy Throws Herself at Men

Lily McElroy throws herself at men and she is not shy about her leaping! Lily photographs herself flying through the air with impressive force and one imagines that from time to time she must end up tackling the men she hurls herself towards. On her website she describes these photographs as an exploration of an...Read...

Lining The Universe With Images By John Malloy

Many of his music-related clients include but are not limited to KEXP, Minus The Bear, Paste Magazine, and These United States.

Distance, Levitation, Interbeing… Tom Gallo.

There’s a lot of geometrical artwork floating around these days. A lot of it is shrouded in collaged backdrops and fancy borders, but Tom Gallo needs only lovely textures — largely of the wood grain variety — and shapes surrounded by negative space to create some really interesting works. These pieces aren’t overly busy, but...Read...
