a dystopia where in order to have some semblance of decent human rights you have to fit into a set of specific criteria based on  things such as race, gender, sexuality, and income, the ideal combination of which is met only by a small portion of society oh wait

Visual Reprise: 3D Paintings

Amazing paintings that defies tradition. Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata fuses his paintings with his color-perfect sculptures. These compositions make for quite the compelling installation. At first glance, these painting seem perfectly great, but take a step back and watch the visual presentation as the sculpture compliments the work itself. The first piece is just lovely, the sunset backdrop that corresponds with the yellow, orange gradient works flawlessly against the subject and cat. The second piece is my favorite, the cascading blue, violet markings makes for an interesting element in the piece. It sets a perfect mood for the girl and her food. The third piece is just as remarkable as well, the brown and light green creates the illusion of fall. I love all of these workings, be sure to check out more of Shintaro’s work after the jump.

ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY

Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work. 

Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.

UPDATE: So you maybe you couldn’t afford to buy one of Erin Riley’s Taboo Tapestries at her latest show, but you can still rock out with this official patch of her original piece Taste of the Rockies http://shop.paradigmarts.org/collections/in-out-works-by-joe-boruchow-and-erin-m-riley/products/taste-the-rockies-patch
