Here are two great videos for Mark Dean Veca's "Phantasmagoria"
exhibition that we covered here not long ago. The first video features the artist discussing the installation itself, while the second video features the man in action and captures the full month effort it took to paint the exhibition summing it up in a matter of minutes. Most definitely worth a watch, so click inside to enjoy these two videos.
As mentioned earlier, it was an action packed weekend for Gallery 1988 as the opening for Greg "Craola" Simkins' "It Wanders West"
show in Los Angeles took place. Craola's work for this show is truly stunning as you can see from the images after the jump. Word has it that all but one of the paintings were sold during the preview and after looking at them -- it is easy to see why. All paintings were also framed beautifully to add to the overall presentation to his work. Really amazing stuff here.
Photographer Rick Rodney
has been a busy man since the last time we wrote about him. His site has been updated with a lot of great material ranging from election day images, portraits with the Gas Lamp Killer
and Jason Dill
, to a day at the Santa Anita racetrack. In addition to that, you can also see some nice images of Q-Tip
doing an instore performance (not sure about the location, but I am assuming Turntable Lab in Los Angeles). Rick is capable of a broad range of styles from photographing inanimate objects, to portraits, and picturesque landscape photography. A great all around variety of images are always available for viewing, which is exactly why I make it a point to check the site every now and then. Have a look inside at some examples of his work.
