Do Ho Suh: Leeum Samsung Museum of Art

Do Ho Suh makes these colorful fabric architectural pieces that are spot on in scale in his new show “Home Within Home” at Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea.  Their transparency gives them this almost digital CAD feeling.  I like to describe them as large soft sculptures.  Much like the work of Shih Jindian, I captured his work for myself at last years 2011 Art Basel in Miami, but Suh’s art for this show is much grander in size.

A Live Drawing Event and Fundraiser

June 8, 2012 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM

Donation for Admission: $15 & up
Location: Verdi Club
2424 Mariposa
(between Potrero & Hampshire; 17th & 18th)

Southern Exposure’s Monster Drawing Rally is a live drawing event and fundraiser featuring over 120 artists.

Demystifying a process that usually takes place in the privacy of the studio, the Monster Drawing Rally allows spectators to observe artists in the act of creation in the public domain. In keeping with Southern Exposure’s mission to provide an environment accessible to art and artists, the Monster Drawing Rally sets the stage for extraordinary interaction, providing a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after its completion.

The evening will consist of four one-hour shifts that each feature approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously. As the drawings are completed, they will be hung on the walls and made available for purchase for $60 each. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for Southern Exposure’s programs.

Lorna Mills

Lorna Mills takes popular culture and creates these magnificent and odd GIF animations.  Her digital media art is looping visual candy that mashes up viral image bytes that I can relate to.

“Lorna uses different ways to create her animated GIFs, a well known one is from the huge research she makes on the Internet about viral videos, images and even found GIFs, then she manipulates it to create her animated collages to show to the viewer her own story, her own world.” – Triangulation Blog

Hollis Brown Thornton

HB Thornton creates these kitschy image transfer art from old photographs and markers.  He sells these prints from his site http://www.hollisbrownthornton.com.

His art themes upon memory and perception.  Going through his site I can’t help but think of grade school type illustrations with heavy marker use.  Remember those big fat smelly markers they use to give us in school to color.  The ones we used to sniff and pretend it actually smells like certain fruits?  I digress.

One more great thing about Hollis’s site is that he actually teaches you how he creates these transfers!  http://www.hollisbrownthornton.com/information/transfer.htm

Isn’t it great when you learn something new and useful from an artist?!

INVADER on his home turf, Paris

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBXjpfX576w&feature=player_embedded]

Now they say this is one night with Invader in Paris.  I say, “Wow”. What dedication he has.  Quite an impressive operation, I am in awe with this kid.  I’ve seen his work, as many of us probably have in urban cities, and I quite enjoy the 4-bit tile art.  His pieces are also not invasive, it blends with it’s environment well.  The art reminds me of my childhood and when I see his work it triggers those pleasant memories.  Keep doing what you’re doing Invader, it’s a good thing.

So Mike D. of the Beastie Boy’s has curated a show titled Transmissions, an audio video affair.  Here Ben Jones creates a 3-Dimensional projected room which parallels a driving video game.  It looks fantastic and I will be attending the MOCA in Los Angeles in early May to see it for myself.
