44 weeks of words

between march 2010 and february 2011 Mikko Kuorinki formed one new text each week on a wall of the Kiasma museum in Helsinki. these are my favourites – see all of them here. Joe Brainard: Poem (1971) Aram Saroyan: Electric poems (1972) David Foster Wallace: Infinite Jest (1996) Bertol Brecht: Im Dickicht…

Sophie Duran

i’ve been seeing Sophie Duran’s work around the internet for a while now, so i was thrilled when she got in touch to tell me about her new print collection Undiscovered Wonders of the World. Created out of self made photographes, old travel books and minerals, these unknown mysterious worlds…

Tenka Gammelgaard

spotted the studio of Danish artist Tenka Gammelgaard over at mackapär and emmas designblogg this week. the fact that she paints her paint brushes is pretty much the cherry on top for me. images from mackapär, emmas designblogg and tenka’s blog.

Val Britton

Val Britton makes immersive, collaged works on paper that draw on the language of maps. The impetus for this body of work was my longing to connect to my father, a truck driver who drove eighteen-wheelers across the country; he died when I was a teenager. Based on road maps…

Gregory Euclide & Bon Iver

i’ve been holding out on listening to the new Bon Iver album because i’ve been hearing so much about it online and fear a bit of a build up / let down situation. the same thing happens when i constantly hear about an amazing film, then usually end up only seeing it…

i know most people call artists by their surnames, but i would really like it if everyone referred to dürer as albrecht. it really suits his work, i think. i was just having a wee browse today and realised how much his stuff cheers me up – even though (probably because)…

henri’s flowers

still life is not my usual fare, but i make an exception for henri fantin-latour whose darkly hued flower paintings have always captivated me. looking through these reminded me of this beautiful post at forty-sixth at grace, photographed by john cullen all henri fantin-latour images courtesy of the athenaeum

Fumio Watanabe

you know, i swear a LOT in real life. i first spotted Fumio Watanabe’s work on Kistina’s tumblr, and when i clicked through to his portfolio i actually said, out loud, “fucking hell.” i try to keep things clean on the blog because i know a lot of people don’t appreciate…

jonathan zawada / over time

i spotted australian artist jonathan zawada’s striking neon landscapes on one of those sites like fffound / tumblr where people don’t bother to include any information, so after a bit of digging around i found his official website and more information about his latest exhibition over time at the prism gallery in…

louis reith

book pages is a series by louis reith – works made from collage and/or fineliner + marker on book pages also, map mountains. wow.
