Michael Murphy

Michael Murphy’s sophisticated conceptual approach to artistic creation is evident in his constant search for new and innovative methods with which to execute his works. Fascinated with light, color, tone and shape, the artist strives to challenge the boundaries between the second and third dimensions with optical illusions, where portraiture plays an important role. The artist’s wire portrait of President Barack Obama received critical acclaim and was featured in TIME magazine’s December 2008 issue.

Aggravure by Baptiste Debombourg

Posted: 02.10.2011 at 18:17 | Comments: 0

It’s rather hip for modern artists to skip traditional art media and forgo stuffy art galleries for empty factories and abandoned industrial spaces to showcase their art, but not a lot of them can pull off what French visual artist Baptiste Debombourg did.

In his installation Aggravure, Baptiste spent 75 hours creating the image of falling Phaeton* on a wall in a very, very unusual manner

 

GAVIN WORTH – WireSculptures

Posted: 02.10.2011 at 17:28 | Comments: 0

These are essentially line drawings done with wire. Visit the official website for more

My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful.
