Our Spiritual Senses: Brad Kunkle

When I first saw the paintings of Brad Kunkle, I thought they were photographs that had somehow been altered or augmented. They’re not. His gorgeous brushwork is at once dream-like and photorealistic and his paintings are made all the more wonderful by his use of gold leaf. Gold leaf is a brilliant material to work with. It’s […]

The Ripening: Artists In Their 80s

There’s a fantastic article up on LightBox right now that begins: “Time is rough on a lot of life pursuits. Athletes dwindle. Dancers pull tendons. Politicians? It varies. But artists, if they work it right, they ripen.” The photo essay, which was commissioned by TIME, allowed photographer Eugene Richards to spend seven months photographing a number […]

L’enfant Terrible: Robert Rauschenberg

After World War II, the center of the Modern art world began to shift away from Paris and towards New York, due in large part to a small group of painters who were evolving beyond pre-war Surrealism toward a new way of painting—one that held the brush as an extension of the subconscious.

In one bold stroke you can transform today.” – Marilyn Grey Tom Carter spent two years traveling through all 33 of China’s provinces capturing beautiful photographs using just a 4-megapixel point-and-shoot.

Pictures of Magazine: Vik Muniz

Artist and photographer, Vik Muniz, has made a career out of creating amazing pieces of art from what others discard. In the documentary Waste Land, filmmakers followed Muniz from his home in New York to his native Brazil where he created large-scale portraits of “catadores” – self-designated pickers of recyclable materials in the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim […]

In His Own Backyard: Joshua Davis

I’ve been a fan of Joshua Davis for more than a decade. Back then, he was one of several developers, like Hillman Curtis, Brendan Dawes and a few others making their mark creating amazing Flash content.
