Chyrum Lambert

 

Los Angeles-based painter Chyrum Lambert has many skills in his creative bag, and uses several at a time to create his art. Inks, dyes, stains, acrylics, waxes, epoxies, and oils are all painted onto paper or fabric before being cut apart with an Xacto blade, and reformed into a very organic feeling finished piece.

Johanna Goodman / The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings

 

The Monday after this year’s Women’s March seems like an ideal day to share Johanna Goodman‘s The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings! All women, all fierce, all powerful. Each elongated figure is a collage combining elements of art, design, and architecture with references to cultural artifacts such as talismans, idols, and totems.

Matthew Rangel

 

Matthew Rangel is from the San Joaquin Valley of California, where he grew up among agricultural productivity and economically challenged communities. This setting plays a huge role in Rangel’s creativity. The maps in his work are generated using lithography as well as a variety of other traditional and digital printmaking methods, but it’s the overlaid illustrations that make his work hit home for anyone who has experienced anything like his youth.

Christy M. King

 

Christy M. King is Nashville-based, while the flora her botanical collages mimic are all from North Carolina – a nod to her own roots. The series explores what it means to be American (to Americans as well as others), her interest living a green life, and making art through recycling paper scraps.

Griffin Carrick Design

 

Paper quilling is sometimes thought of as and old lady’s craft, but Griffin Carrick‘s work is anything but. As both an interior designer and maker her goal is to transform the everyday into the extraordinary, believing that beauty does not rely on luxury or trend but on the unexpected use of the familiar. Paper is definitely the familiar and Griffin’s use of it in her collages and wall hangings is entirely modern.

Elliott Hundley

 

There is a LOT going on in Elliott Hundley‘s densely articulated works. What exactly are we observing – paintings? Sculptures? Collages? All of that and then some, it turns out. From photos to flea market finds to news clippings, Hundley creates layer upon layer of psychologically dense content for us to dissect.

Eli Craven

 

We last checked in with Eli Craven back in 2015, and wow has he been busy. Still hard at work manipulating and deconstructing photography every which way, Craven is such an expert at hiding faces that he may as well be in the Witness Protection Program. I love the mystery and intrigue left behind by every piece.

Irina & Silviu

 

Plenty of couples work together, but Irina and Silviu Szekely create across multiple disciplines – collage and photography. Today we’re highlighting the duo’s handmade collage work, which is made using scissors and glue just like the rest of us might grab at home. Each piece is full of completely disjointed bits and bobbles, and yet things end up ultimately harmonious. (I’m thinking we could all learn something from this, no?)
