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.
The artwork of Alexa Meade is certainly much more than my title suggests and lives somewhere between photography, painting and performance. These illusionistic installations require tedious attention to detail to pull off such a wonderful visual effect.
Whitney Lynn works in various mediums, often including an element of performance. Lynn’s artwork can be seen in an upcoming exhibition, God Only Knows Who the Audience Is: Performance, Video, and Television Through the Lens of La Mamelle / ART COM.
As the year comes to an end, I, like many, tend to reflect on the last year. One thing I enjoy is looking back to see what posts readers of Today in Art like most. The best way I have of doing this today is by looking at the most visited posts.
I first found Lucy McRae when she was collaborating with Bart Hess. Lucy’s latest work, TransNatural will be opening this Friday, February 19, 2010. TransNatural explores “the crossover between nature and technology.”
Jim Denevan creates drawings that are nothing short of amazing. These drawings are mostly created by dragging a stick on the ground. Okay, I’ll shut up, enjoy.
