Fresh Figs #7 ~ Sun Ira

would you like to swing on a star_

hey there wordpress ppl!

here are some NICE things for you this tuesday on the internet

the collage above is called ‘would you like to swing on a star’

and the one below is ‘cow-grid catastophe’ …

the artist’s name is Sun Ira / Ira Carter and here’s what he has to say ~ ~ ~

Artistic history starts when I was a wee chile and encouraged by my parents. Went off to art school while dinosaurs still roamed the Earth. Became a graphic artist working in the SF Bay area. Got in on the ground floor of the Mac revolution in 1984 and taught myself how to make it do what I wanted. My art practice is informed by Dada and the desire to make confrontational but humorous art that tells truth to power in a world full of consumption, exploitation, and militarism. My hope is that a sense of play and holy foolishness comes across.

here’s Sun’s beeyootiful tumblr

hope your week is kol as heck 😉 [from Ben x]

Joint Post with Zoe Litaker

boot envy (the blue divide)
 
a couple of weeks ago, seattle-based photographer / artist zoe litaker asked me to collaborate on a lil something
 
we each agreed to use the other’s ‘central themes’ to produce an image or two
 
zoe said ‘My themes tend to revolve around the mood disorder mixup of reality with fiction / memory / imagination… I draw a lot from the idea of magical realism and I love surrealist art’
 
zoe’s images are below, and mine – ‘boot envy (the blue divide)’ – is above

zoe litaker (fox with a price tag)
 
i particularly like zoe’s ‘becoming seattle’ series
 
these are b/w and normally blend two or three images
 
the figures are like ghosts or double-exposures
 
 
sometimes they appear on rooftops
 
sometimes they pull sassy poses
 
she makes excellent use of smudges and saturation
 
her images are always subtle, smart and a little bit dark
 
please check out the rest of her work!
