Exquisite Corpse – by Jimmy apRoberts and Brian Christopher

A section from Exquisite Corpse – which totals 60 panels. Each panel is 32 inches tall, and widths range from 6 to 15 inches.

Art elements consist of photos taken by the artists, scanned drawings, vector illustration, and digital drawings created with a drawing tablet. The final art is assembled using mostly Illustrator and Photoshop.

Thanks Brian for submitting this one!  There is so much to look at in this piece and I love the color and life of the imagery.

This ongoing collaborative project is based on a drawing technique called “Exquisite Corpse.” The technique was invented by Surrealists in 1925 and is based on an old parlour game in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution.

Tree #1 – by Myoung Ho Lee

Tree #1, from the series Photography-Act, 2007

This work reminds me, on a much smaller scale, of Christo’s Running Fence.  I guess the starkness of the white canvas used to cut into nature is where I find the similarity.  One key difference is this piece was designed to have one point of view.  Pieces like this one cause me to think about man made objects and how they interact with and chnage our landscape.

Simple in concept, complex in execution, Lee makes us look at a tree in its natural surroundings, but separates the tree artificially from nature by presenting it on an immense white ground, as one would see a painting or photograph on a billboard.
