Let me set this up by saying that I am a big The Lemonheads fan. I am even a fan of Evan Dando as a solo artist. I have been a fan since the release of It’s A Shame About Ray, which came out in 1992, and by this time already their fifth album. It was released during the summer leading into my senior year of high school….Geez, now I am telling my age. I never had an opportunity to see them live back then, but on the night of March 4, 2012, I would get my chance.
It has been a while since I last looked at the artwork of Brian Dettmer. Dettmer is still breathing new life into old, antiquated books and transforming them into new works of art.
Vocal Chords is from Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s album It’s a Corporate World. These guys have a great sound that backs up the quirky name they chose for the band.
These drawings are created by an artist known as Mr. Frivolous. Armed with pencil and felt pens, Mr. Frivolous creates fantastic portraits of people surrounded by phrases which the person may be saying or thinking.
Martina Nehrling fills paper and canvas with textured slashes and splatters. The paintings are alive with motion as the lines direct your eyes through the vivid dancing colors.
Phil Cuttance not only creates precise and clean faceted geometric forms. Cuttance also transforms this process into an art with a video below, which is equally as clean and precise.
So where do I begin with Asheville, North Carolina’s RBTS WIN? I guess I can start by saying they are (expletive-ing) AMAZING!!!! I had the privilege of playing with them not too long ago. I was already into what they were doing before, then after seeing them do what they do live solidified it for me.
Kate MacDowell uses her artwork to comment on the beauty of our world and how we as humans appreciate and desire this beauty. Contrasting to this is our desire for a convenient and easy lifestyle which impacts the beauty of the world around us. MacDowell crafts these beautifully and intricately detailed works in porcelain.
In case you have not heard, Jack White is releasing a new album, Blunderbuss, on April 23/24. But, I am not sure what is going on with the two days. Could they not decide which day to release?
Here is something fun for Friday. Filippo Perin (PHIL) sculpts fantastic small characters and toys from paper.
