Most of Anna Garforth’s artwork is created from materials not usually selected for making art. Food, moss, trash, etc. are used to bring her projects to life. The first work that caught my eye was the moss works, but I also enjoy her other art as well.
Jacob Sutton captures beautifully haunting images in his exhibition photography. Sutton works in color for his commercial work, but sticks to black and white or monochromatic photography for his exhibition work.
Johan Rijpma breathes life into ordinary rolls of packing tape by sticking them to the ceiling in various patterns and allowing gravity to take over. He does also lean on some clever video work to add some appeal to the whole thing. This video of the work is fantastic and well worth watching.
Nick Gentry paints portraits of fit, young people onto collections of old discarded floppy disks. These pieces are interesting to me, with the importance that our popular culture places on the shiny and new.
