Francesca Woodman

28 12 2014

Francesca Woodman’s photographs have an awful intimacy about them. As if you’d been let in to see something… dreadful. It is a storyline. About pain. Reminds me of some of John Lennon’s music on The Plastic Ono Band.

Francesca Woodman (April 3, 1958 – January 19, 1981) was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring herself and female models. Many of her photographs show young women who are nude, blurred (due to movement and long exposure times), merging with their surroundings, or whose faces are obscured. Her work continues to be the subject of much critical acclaim and attention, years after she killed herself at the age of 22

Andy Kehoe

I don’t know if they are brothers. Andy Kehoe and Ben Kehoe. Of course they could be the same artist. Like Vincent and Van Gogh. They are both amusing. In an offbeat and satirical way. Even their mother can’t tell them apart. Unless they have 2 mothers. Andy’s work does remind me of the Canadian north. And that great hero, Dudley Do-right. Of the Mounties.

Steam punk reminds me of Ayn Rand. The romanticizing of the industrial revolution. Wedded to a gruesome future (past) where nature has been subdued. (Mostly destroyed.) Although clearly fantasy it is also intriguing. Marcin Jakubowski’s work is in that mode.

Marnie Weber.

This artist certainly has a broad paint brush. Her work is fanciful, immersed in the fanciful nightmares of early childhood. I am not sure where it is headed. Perhaps she will come up with some more surprises in her next work.

His work reminds one of Grosz and Bosch. His character, almost comic in presentation, seemed wasted and floundering in a world of corruption.

Joshua Hagler. What an interesting artist. Some of his work resembles the Flemish painters Bosch and Brueghel. Their works are filled with imagery and metaphors. And so I Hagler’s. Plus his work has that easy surreal flow about it. Collage like. His work is political. And also a social commentary.

This young artist has discovered some interesting things. This animation of a house is one of them.

I am really into this gif thing in the last time, they are just so much better than just pictures, like a mix between picture and film, how awesome is that? So this project is made by INSA and Stanley Downwood. To be honest: I looked at the other works of them alone and I didn’t like them because it is so simple and stupid so I’m surprised that I like the project they did together. But as this is the case I wanted to show it to you guys, so here it is:

I have blogged on this artist several times. Her signature/style is the same for all of her work. And I never tire of it. Something very satisfying about each piece. Takahiro Kimura.
