Let’s Talk about What We Have

February 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Yukari Kaihori is a New Zealand- based artist who was born in Japan. Her series, Let’s talk about what we have, depicts devastated landscapes from the Christchurch Red Zone. Kaihori adorns her landscapes with embroidery which adds texture, and more importantly, a sense of new life post-disaster.

Artist Crush: Sally Ross

February 5th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Sally Ross is an Australian artist whose paintings are all about texture and the illusion of movement. Her landscapes often feature bodies of water, formed by deep blue undulating ripples. These bolts of blue are rough-hewn, like patches sewn together in a quilt, giving off the impression of water in an abstracted sense more than resembling the real thing. Remarking on Ross’ equally interesting portraits Dan Rule wrote, “We’re drawn to the figure only to become lost in the rippling pointilist hairdo.” The same can be said of the waves and leaves in her landscapes.

Artist Crush: Devon Tsuno

April 25th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Devon Tsuno works on handmade paper from Japan and India. The artist’s bio reads: “Los Angeles-native Devon Tsuno paints with spray paint and acrylic. His recent body of abstract paintings on handmade papers focuses on the LA landscape’s non-native vegetation.” The layering of 2-D vegetation in Devon’s work has a really awesome effect. To me these pieces are evocative of the setting sun and the shadows created at different levels as the sun disappears into the horizon.

Andreas Johansson’s work, including these clever pop-up books, features desolate landscapes crafted from the artist’s memory, imagination or perhaps both. Images from Galleri Flach via Flavorwire.
