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!

If there’s one world that could describe Christine Mahoney’s painting’s that would be: landscape. However, her paintings aren’t the landscapes of Hockney or naturalist painters.

October 13th, 2015 Posted by Art, Digital, Featured, Paintings No Comment yet

There is so much movement in her mounted pieces and wall works. Looking at some of them make you feel as if you are under water, flowing with the various organisms – not to mention the color schemes she uses. They match so well and almost pop off of the medium. Her line work is incredible, creating petals, waves, and abstract designs.

Tristan Eaton, an art director, muralist, graffiti artist and designer for Kidrobot, is one of many artists who make it their mission to eliminate the preconceived notion of art as a form of institutional wall-paper. Like other street artists, Eaton is bringing his work in to the public space, but he does so with a starkingly vibrant style all his own.

Jean-Luc Godard Pushes the Boundaries of 3D Film with “Goodbye to Language”

All of the film’s dialogue is just a way of circling around that inexpressible point, a point well made with a line of Claude Monet’s: “Paint not what we see, for we see nothing…but paint that we don’t see.”
