Many thanks to Art Asylum Boston for introducing me to Kevin Peterson. Peterson’s paint reveals a sharp contrast between the innocent world of a child and the reality of the world in which they live.
I am so glad I found Gabriella Barouch’s collection of art. I love how seamlessly she combine various media in her work. The finished pieces feel complete, as if these materials were meant to be combined in the such a way.
Today’s amazing illustrations are by artist Mel Kadel.
Jenkins is a mixed media artist that pumps out works of art like a machine. The volume of wonderful work that comes from his hands is staggering.
I seem to be on a kick for revisiting artists that I have previously featured. 😀 I have really enjoyed looking back through old posts and finding how each artists work has evolved. I featured a piece, Growth I, by Katherine Mann in 2008, and I was thrilled to find new work from her in my inbox.
Andreas Kocks does some pretty amazing things with paper. His installations transform the paper into an exciting medium to explore. Andreas is currently exhibiting his work with many other fine artists in Slash: Paper Under the Knife, Museum of Arts and Design in New York, NY.
With the year drawing to a close we naturally reflect on the past year. 2009 has been kind to this little blog and I look forward to what 2010 may bring. I aggregated a list of the 20 most visited posts from 2009 from the stats and this is what I found. Oddly enough, some were pretty recent, and some were from last year. I decided to include the ones from last year as well since I have many new readers.
Kevin Van Aelst is a New England artist creating some extraordinary works from very ordinary objects. I have included a few of his works here, but you should visit his website to see more of his work.
