Interior designers and Nashville natives, Tish and Brandi Cyrus, take on their first clients. Their challenge is to redesign the living room and bathroom to not only be kid friendly, but to also be on par with the homeowners' luxurious taste.Read More
Anatomically correct, eschewing academic distinctions between the fine and applied arts.
Thinking about Cecil Beaton’s controversial photographs of models posing in front of Jackson Pollock paintings (published in Vogue, March 1951).
Depictions of patterns with a wit and playfulness that hints at their fetishistic status.
Equally as inspired by the handcrafted as he is disheartened by the glut of cheap products fueling consumerist culture.
“I draw inspiration from all over, but mostly I’m attracted to objects that are handmade and have some kind of special quality to them,” he describes. “It’s hard to explain, but I can admire a Picasso just as much as a crusty wooden lawn ornament my uncle made in 1987.”
compositions that stand as formidable challenges to the ethics and aesthetics of unchecked consumption
Exuberant, intricate work that celebrates man's ritualistic impulses toward image making, borrowing widely from world culture motifs like Northwest Coast Indian masks, Islamic ornamentation, and Japanese perforated screens.
Known for its elaborate sampling of methods (a single work may use collage, monotype, relief printing, marbling, gilding, silk-screening, and the gestures of Action painting).
Taaffe's art is founded on his belief that painting should be a synthesis of visual forces rather than the ruptures sought by modernism.
Sincere and intense but also playful.
McCarthy transforms found wood surfaces into bursts, geometric blocks of color and woven patterns that are often emphasized by text and spray paint.
These “paintings” bear a sculptural weight that is juxtaposed by their deceptively simple mark and image making.
how art can maintain its value as a physical object when most artworks are viewed online
1. Defy the confines of digital reproduction
2. Counter notions of what painting is. Was. Is. Was. IS.
2 1/2. Through loosely impressionistic, largely unrecognizable forms.
An work commissioned by Chicago's Experimental Sound Studio (ESS) in 2000. A 30-minute work of non-narrative radio theater. Yum. My favorite kind.
it offers a Dada roller-coaster ride through diners, speakeasies, and crime scenes
Pool for Franca Sozzani (editor and chief of Vogue Italia)
beyond images of form, direct forms of matter, whose form is internal
there is something not unlike fractals, of the micro or macrocosm, deliberately imprecise, but certainly very far from any form of geometric abstraction, and in which the reference to the organic remains tangible

“You can’t create architecture in an office environment”
Absolutely Impossible not to see these remarkable objects in person. Actually. You shouldn't even look at the here. Well, look...and now make a calendar date to find out when and where his next exhibition is and go. Just go, No excuses. Not this time. There is no time. These are very urgent paintings. Be warned. Nay, be enlightened.
Where were you? I went to the tarp like you said and I sat there for two hours. I got thirsty and went to get water. I left a note. I came back fifteen minutes later and waited another two hours.
I think I would have seen you coming or going when I got the water so I guess you just never showed up. What happened? What’s wrong? Where did you go? I am worried and afraid to call your house.
Nothing happened. I never went to the tarp. I didn’t want to see you. I don’t ever want to see you. I can’t explain, there’s nothing for me to say. Please don’t contact me ever again. You don’t
"We go outside and get into a movable shell and zip off to another place, and get out inside of another one. So it’s kind of musical chairs with these shells—the shell game—and these things that enclose us."
James Turrell gave me a feeling, I feel like I owe him one too. In my first year of college, I went to visit his installation at Clairmont University and was never the same. My relationship to my environment went through a massive shift. I became insanely in tune with gravity, which is complicated in itself. There's this indescribable magnetism to a Turrell piece that almost hurts to talk about because it's so much about presence. At the time I considered myself a rigorous painter. Little did I know.......I love you James. DM me! ;)
I love that I'm thousands of miles away from Randall's Island in New York and still have access to the amount of incredible art on view this week at the Frieze Art Fair. I was scrolling through the #frieze page and was STOPPED in my tracks when I saw an image of one of Faig Ahmed's woven glitch textiles. I mean holy smokes x1000 this guy rules.
What an exciting new voice in the contemporary art world. I just watched a video of him and started to melt a little watching him walk through what rows of looms creating his new masterpieces.
This is probably one of my favorite topics in contemporary art. The line between art and design or trying to decide where the work fits or collides in either conversation. I haven't seen the pairing of an ancient craft tradition with the language of the Internet executed so well in a long ass time.
