SH 1

new images for your eyeballs / brains this week come from Indiana-based vintage-collage-machine, Scott Hatt!

instead of a bio, Scott sent me this amazing / mad / esoteric poem-commentary on his collages ~

Southern States: Bang, and the Religious Art in France of the Thirteenth Century
Norfolk warned me not to draw
while wearing air corps style glasses
Small targeted machine of dubious origin
the building of your America
Coffee and an orb: served,
Thai monuments in German photos.
Gertrude Jekyllโ€™s Preface was of some help
Radioโ€™s Proportions โ€“ divine
19th Century figures cavort and Chilly waves
Fifty Yen, Rouen, and Ramsgate.
Fifteen degrees west of Greenwich:
Crystals and Orphans.

Fresh Figs # 5 ~ Danai Gkoni

Danai Tourist

HELLO! new work this week [week 5 of ‘Fresh Figs‘] comes from Danai Gkoni ๐Ÿ˜€ the collage above is called ‘Touristic Season’ and the one below is ‘Storm is Coming’… here’s Danai’s bio ~ ~ ~

ฮคhe cities I lived in are constant inspirations as spatial and social conditions ~ those images are dystopic and entertaining at the same time. Coming from the field of architecture Iโ€™m deeply interested in the dynamics of space and the built environment, the urban lifestyle and its aesthetics, the pleasure of urbanity as a space of togetherness and isolation at the same time- those are the concepts I try to explore as a digital artist.

Danai Gkoni is an architect and digital artist. She has lived, studied and worked in Greece and the Netherlands. During her studies, she developed a keen interest on the contemporary urban condition. With architectural collage as a starting point, since 2013 she is exploring a particular style of digital illustration- narrating surreal and sometimes dystopic urban stories.

and here are Danai’s tumblr, website and society6

WordPress Blogs I Like a Lot (Part 1)

as i’ve been nominated for a few ‘awards’ over the past year or so, i thought i’d do a series of my favourite WP blogs as a (sort of) response (that avoids answering questions about myself hehe ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). here are the first 4, you all ~ ~ ~

‘cutcutpaste’ ~

an immaculately curated collection of photos / montages / collages / ephemera with no clue (i could find) of the curator’s identity. categories include ‘geometric’, ‘girls’ and ‘skateboarding is awesome’

‘purple woods’ย ~

vintage / weird (in the best way) collages by Naomi Vona. Naomi uses old photos, stickers, markers, price tags.. her work is dark and sweet; the other artists she admires are also amazing

gentle, surreal and satirical watercolours & drawings by Spanish artist Rosa de los Vientos, ‘just for the fun of sharing in a world full of decline’..

‘cardboard towns’ ~

free-form architectural sketches by Italian artist, writer and musician Marco Bigliazzi. everything Marco does is full of skill, colour and a strange kind of dystopian energy
