Artist Crush: Hye Young

Hye Young is an illustrator and painter from Korea with a loose, experimental approach to painting forgoing details and keeping planes flat and barely formed. Young has a knack for beautiful, dynamic compositions that reveal tension beneath the surface.

Update with Kimberly Corday

Saturday, April 15, 2017

Kimberly Corday has a new body of textile work called Pelage.

“My process is Frankensteinian.  Borrowing aspects of weaving, embroidery, and collage, I make textured objects that conjure up an amalgam of natural phenomena like threadbare pelts, nests, or overgrown brush.

In this new body of work I dye, distress, and manipulate an assortment of textiles in a ritual that yields wall hangings both romantic and primitive. Much like the preserved textiles of a bygone era, this series spotlights organic, sometimes misshapen forms as well as the relationship between beauty and decay.”

Artist Crush: Sara Nilsson

Friday, February 3, 2017

Sara Nilsson is a Swedish artist based in Olsäter whose sculpture, made of layers and layers of paper, incorporates playful elements of illustration and painting. Nilsson’s subjects are immersed in a friendly, alternate natural world that promises their own personal fulfillment. “Her work portrays people who have flocked into the environment… Individuals who go their own way, follow their hearts, are strong in themselves. Their backpacks are packed with courage, dreams and longings. In their world, everything hangs together.” – Galleri Thomassen

Portraits by Klodin Erb

Monday, January 23, 2017

Swiss artist Klodin Erb’s work is dark, playful and disjointed. Her paintings catch and hold the eye with their mix of refinement (including references to classical paintings) and crude ugliness.
