My first reaction to this artist’s work was ‘wow’. These are gorgeous. You can see the pedigree in the work. From Egyptian, Greek, to Klimt.

Icequeen

She has a unique style. There is in each piece a central character and then surrounding them the material world, what makes up her story. I would love to view them on a larger screen but… Her name is Sara. And she is the icequeen.

Its the simplicity of his work, the cleverness, (and there’s always a third) its audacity, and the humor. Plain joy.

Takahiro Kimura

29 07 2014

Takahiro Kimura has got to be one of the most interesting and exciting collagist. When I first saw his work, I was caught up in his technique. How did he do it. It is as if he has taken cut and paste, then printed, then colourized it using crayons. The colours are fabulous. And then he has this great book out. With a fabulous video. You must watch the video. If there is a downside to his work, and I’m not saying it is a downside, it is that his work has his signature all over it. You immediately see that it is the same artist who has done each piece. A kind of boredom could set in. But not for me.
