Siri Kaur

I am not entirely sure how she makes these, but it involves growing mold onto photo paper...and that is exciting. Unfortunately her website does not let me save images, but here is the link.

Stanley Donwood

Stanley Donwood, most known for his artwork for the band Radiohead has been one of the most enduring influences on my work. This series of paintings for an exhibition entitled "Dead Children Playing" are all oil on canvas. I now view the quality of the landscapes so differently than when I first discovered these images years ago.




Kahn + Selnesnick

This duo has a very elaborate website encompassing their fictious worlds in both story and photographic format. They even construct their own sets and costumes for a full 360 work that is cinematic but intreguingly trapped within the still image.

"The Tower of Salt"

This semester I completed a photo book project with a writer friend of mine, and I found such integration of text and image to be very stimulating. Here is a spread below.

Kimihiko Okada

Tinfoil sure is popular these days...

Okada is rather successful right now, as he is even exhibiting within designer clothing label Diesel's stores. The way he plays with light, reflection, and suspension is wonderful.
