Marc Foster’s Afrocentric Mixed Media Brain Blasts

May 10th, 2016 Posted by Art, Chicago, Collage, Featured, Mixed Media, Paintings No Comment yet

What’s amazing about Marc Foster’s works is that they have the vibe of collages, bringing together photographs and blasts of color, but then add another dimension by using found materials and computer motherboards to add texture, definition, and ruggedness to each piece.

Surreal Cutout Paper Collages by Jay Riggio

March 21st, 2016 Posted by Art, Collage, Featured, New York, Surrealism No Comment yet

Most of the people in Riggio’s work have abstracted or replaced heads. The exception is one piece titled, “The Way You Fell In Love With A Girl,” in which all of the subjects’ faces are intact. He includes a male figure in a speedo flying near the top of the frame, but he is perfectly split in two right at the waist. Confusing? Yes. Captivating? Absolutely!

Sita Rupe’s Collages of Americana

March 14th, 2016 Posted by Art, Collage, Featured, Los Angeles, Mixed Media, Paintings, San Francisco, Screenprints No Comment yet

Sita Rupe creates iconic images that recall a bygone era of lively conversations in sun-baked kitchens that stand in the mind with an immediate, almost brutal force. Her craft is executed using clear formal technique: precision, finish and style. There is no chaos or distortion here – only lively play, light days and new beginnings.

Today, Colgianese’s work emphasizes the appearance of big banks in his digitally altered photographs. Colgianese says that he draws the most enjoyment from altering images because in this step of his creative process the “visual truth” is in his hands. He is able to create something that could never exist otherwise.

Lorna Simpson’s Artwork Delves Into History with Abstract Ink Portraits

December 1st, 2015 Posted by Art, Collage, Featured, Mixed Media, New York, Paintings, Photography No Comment yet

Simpson’s sparse, sepia portraits depict women with anonymity – we see only the line of a shoulder blade or the sweep of a collarbone. This universalizes their bodies but also confronts us with an almost unnerving intimacy. These photos are then interwoven, thematically and literally, with the artifacts of a dark history – braids of hair, lonely shoes, empty dinner plates, and abandoned slave quarters.
