Zsolt Hlinka / Corner Symmetry

 

I’ve written about Zsolt Hlinka‘s Urban Symmetry project, and now he’s gone a step further with his latest series – Corner Symmetry. In it Hlinka has created imaginary buildings with real architecture that’s been removed from all external environments. It’s only after a few moments of staring that you realize what you’re viewing is actually a mirror image set at extreme angles to give a fisheye photography effect.

Anja Wülfing

 

German artist Anja Wülfing paints over photographs from the turn of the 19th century and adds what she refers to as oversized visitors – animal heads! The two aspects paired together have a surreal yet eery feel about them, and I couldn’t help but venture a guess as to what each scenario entailed.

Luke O’Sullivan

 

Luke O’Sullivan‘s architecturally inspired sculptures and prints are endlessly fascinating. He uses screen printed drawings to create 2D and 3D works that explore undiscovered underground places.

Early interests in Nintendo games, maps, and science fiction movies contribute to the playful nature of my art. I like to describe my process as creating a lego set using my own hand drawn pieces. I use those pieces to create elaborate sculptures of cities, labyrinths and fantastical objects. Exploration and adventure are central to everything I make with each drawing and sculpture contributing to an ongoing catalogue of a strange invented world.

Caroline Popham

 

Caroline Popham‘s paintings and collages act as a visual diary of sorts. Human habits, routines, and observations are denoted using abstract forms, gradations, and sequential rhythms while color translates mood and action. Popham is also a skilled graphic designer.

Naomi Vona

 

An Italian artist working in London, Naomi Vona‘s work combines the things she’s drawn towards – photography, collage, and video art. Her latest creations are collages featuring vintage found vinyl covers, photos, and postcards. Vona creates an interpretation of the originals by using pens, paper, colored tape, and stickers to create a new life.

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.
