Shane McAdams - Pen Blow (2011) - Ballpoint pen and resin on panel

May 12, 2013

London-based painter Clare Chapman produces work that finds beguiling beauty in the dark and disturbing. Some of her subjects resemble the pus-filled pods or cocoons from which aliens and other horror film staples burst forth, others are more abstract, uncertain outlines in fleshy colours that unnerve without us quite knowing why. The ever-brilliant Brighten The Corners have just redesigned Clare’s website and by keeping the navigation nicely simple they have done a tremendous job at letting us viewers chart and enjoy Clare’s evolution as an artist over the past few years.

two sittings: totaling 1 hour and 53 minutes

discarding the rules
extending the commitment of time

progression— a feeling of falling
a fear of failing
and compulsion wins over
rationalization and obligation

(this is quite possibly my favorite of this series thus far)

DevidSketchbook - JAVASCAPES

abstractions of the flow and dispersion of cream into coffee

PA, Wrightsville-based photographer Daniel G. Walczyk - “In a simple, everyday and even mundane act, life erupts from the firmament; the subatomic and microscopic beginnings of the universe and the history of the world are revealed in the abstractions of the flow and dispersion of cream into coffee. “Javascapes” began life from a serendipitous observation by artist/photographer d. g. walczyk as he poured cream into his pint glass of iced coffee in the summer of 2011. What he saw as the cream was poured and before stirring to thoroughly blend was a variable speed dispersion of the heavier liquid in the darkness of the caffeinated unknown; the formation of a new world in the cold “molten” admixture of South Pacific Blend and 1/2 & 1/2.”
