Today I’m hitchhiking in Romania from Suceava to Piatra Neamţ . Here’s a photograph by Romanian artist Mircea Cantor (who is exhibiting in the MNAC of Bucharest, see here). A hitchhiker with a blank sign, going in any direction.
Fashion Photographer Eugenio Recuenco shoots a beautiful series inspired by Picasso paintings:
I’m off to Romania tomorrow on holiday, so here’s a sculpture by the great Romanian artist Constantin Brâncuși. And when I return I will share all the cool new artists I discovered!
Here’s some Flash Fiction by Lydia Davis:
If your eyeballs move, this means that you’re thinking, or about to start thinking.
If you don’t want to be thinking at this particular moment, try to keep your eyeballs still.
The sun is shining, summer is here, so here’s an artist with the sunniest of names: Sol LeWitt.
Sol LeWitt’s study of spheres is a study of time and its relationship with art. Each photograph is simultaneously a documentation of the specific state of illumination as well as part of the artist’s abstract narrative.
I’ve found another wonderful example of clouds in art to add to the previous collection. This time the “clouds” are trapped in a resin cube:
The artist, Peter Alexander, was part of the Light and Space movement in the 60s. During this period artists in Southern California started using new materials like plastic, resin, and industrial coating to create sculptures and installations which blurred the lines between art, industry, and science. In his Cloud Box (1966), Peter Alexander made a cube with polyester resin and introduced some water vapour during the casting process.The result was the formation of white “clouds” inside the resin. A beautiful and poetic object which evokes the light and atmospheric conditions of Southern California.
