Over September and October I’ll have a few paintings up at Ethos in Hobart. Head over to 100 Elizabeth Street, try some of the amazing food, and check them out. All work is for sale, and awaiting to be purchased by your fine selves. The work featured on the flyer is entitled ‘Bloom’ — a collaborative piece with my good friend and fellow Hobart illustrator Beth-Emily.
Check out the astounding detail featured in the work of Sydney based artist and designer Victoria Garcia. This project is entitled Surrocodelia; the name is derived from the combination of the Surreal, Rococo, and Psychedelic aesthetic movements.
Take a look at the work of Canadian painter Kris Knight. I’m in awe of his soft colour pallet, loose brush strokes, and glistening cold red noses. Amazing.
Californian painter and sculpter Brendan Monroe has just launched a new Website with lots of new work. I’ve observed the evolution of Brendan’s work for about 10 years now, as he continuously — literally — zooms in on his subject matter. He still maintains the figurative elements, while further and further stripping them down to a molecular level, of cells, sound waves and other illustrated scientific elements. His observations of the molecular scale, in turn broaden his scope to snippets of an expansive tangled universe, giving character and life to the darker places beyond our vision.
Check out the beautifully minimal black and white drawings of Daehyun Kim. The artist works between Seoul and Vienna, and has a background of study related to traditional East-Asian Art and Painting.
