Peter Lewis

20 09 2013

Peter Lewis is an Austalian collagist. His work is fun. Full of colour and images, mostly drawn either from some 50′s world of his fantasy or the Victorian age. He has made a wonderful little video where he talks about his work. It is quite illuminating. The one draw back is the downloads you are allowed at his sight are so small you can’t really appreciate what he has done.

Lee Harvey Roswell. Read his name and you get an idea where he is coming from. This is Dali in the 21st century. The court jester. His works are exuberant. His mind is like a scrap heap of visual images. Craftsmanship and imagination. What a combination

Levi van Veluw

There must be something in the Dutch blood. They create some of the most bizarre visual pieces you will see. You ask yourself ‘where did they come up with that idea?’. Levi van Veluw is such an artist.  You’ve got to love it.

Rauzier

Perhaps the greatest response I have had to a blog is the blog I did on Rauzier. Sometimes you just want to cry. You see something that is so interesting. Intriguing. Something you never thought of. (Until you wife tells you what it reminds you of). Its called hyperphotos. Take some time at this sight and… (forgive me)  you’ll blow your mind.

I am constantly struck by modern art. Once in the eye. By their relationship with collage. This parade of images on the canvas disregarding pomp and gravity. And avoiding the pose. As if the painting itself were not posed but just captured a moment (aka photo). Most of Afraz’s subjects seem passive. Waiting for something. Reflective perhaps. Lost in thought. Or just bored.

Arnau Alemany

15 09 2013

Odd when you read about artist who was born in the same year as yourself. Such is Arnau Alemany. His work has this odd appeal. It is very organic. As if urban rural life were one and the same. And dated. Something in the late 19th century. And naive. Not in its conception but its themes. Pastoral in quality the cities have none of the ugliness of most cities. Everything is tidy. Controlled. In sync. But where are the people?

Having said this, the work is beutiful. (I left the ‘a’ out)
