Fernando Vincente

Fernando Vincente's series Vanitas or Little Veins in English reminds me of my class trips to the morgue to draw. It's a nice twist on fashion illustration.

Berlinde De Bruyckere

Berlinde De Bruyckere's work is both disturbing and intensely beautiful...bodies clinging to each other or themselves-stacked old blankets in trees. There is a constant desire for her figures to hide whether it is under blankets, covers, or to have the lack of heads- which leave them without an identity. Some of the bodies remind me of a sculptural Francis Bacon. I really love the looming creepiness.

Anders Krisár

I really connected with Anders Krisár's pieces. His use of the space in between people's faces to create a psychological tension leave me with questions about the relationships illustrated. I especially like the last piece, the bronze cast face is attached to a heat isolator in close proximity to another cast made of beeswax. so good.

Adele- Rolling In Deep

I love this music video... especially the glasses of water vibrating to the beat.

Unlikely combination- beautiful surprise

Spike Jonze Presents: Lil Buck and Yo-Yo Ma... wow

Ji Lee

Ji Lee's Little Worlds explore the power of discovery and how when the viewer finds these "little worlds"and they become theirs. They are like encountering a secrets or a parallel universe...they are pretty comical as well.

Hannes Grebin

Hannes Grebin
cubist interpretations of German 70s furniture.
The respective original object shouldn’t be reduced just to absurdity. I rather “zeroed” its geometry or sometimes I only rearranged it. A precise assignment of functions of the resulting un-or non-forms is now only possible through their texture (fabric) or applications (fringes, patterns, lace doilies), which are radiating neatness and a certain familiarity in spite of the predominant geometric dissonance. This creates the very disturbing effect of these. Despite its fractal and asymmetric geometry the furniture perfectly meet the demands of ergonomics. Thus I wanted to erupt from the everlasting symmetry of furniture.

Annika Nordenskiöld

Annika Nordenskiöld's lamps makes me want to make one out of clay. Her's must weigh a ton made out of cement.

Augustina Woodgate

Augustina Woodgate makes rugs and wall pieces out of cut up teddy bears and stuffed animals. They remind me of Nick Cave's wall pieces.

Eric Mark Sandburg

Eric Mark Sandburg's "Hairy Children Portriats" are hilarious.
