Chloe Early, the Irish born, London based artist is hands down my favourite artist right this moment. Absolutely amazing how she blends her oil paintings all the while creating this abstract collage of surrealism. #stunning

This gentleman’s body work not only speaks for itself but it also puts most other artists in his “field” to shame. ‘Artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson eviscerates text and white space leaving only the images. In doing so he creates entirely new narratives using only the pre-existing illustrations, charts, graphs and other visual elements printed inside of each book.’ In his own words, he says:

“By using pre-existing media as a starting point, certain boundaries are set by the material, which I aim to transform through my process. Thus, an encyclopedia can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience. These books, having been stripped of their utilitarian value by the passage of time, regain new purpose. They are no longer tools to learn about the world, but rather a means to gain insight about oneself.”

‘What you see above represents a selection of his work from 2012, but you can see much more on his website. He’ll also have work at the Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead, London starting next week.’

Tom Dixon Studio’s “Tower House”

4 08 2012

Tower House

Tom Dixon Studio’s ‘Tower House’ in West London’s Kensington area brings avant-garde architecture to a whole new level, or rather to an above ground level. Although the abandoned structure was once used to contain and filter water, the designers have re-purposed it in the interest of upscale housing.

Tower House’s 7 meter diameter and 60 ft height have accommodated the creation of a remarkable living space. The two floors include a kitchen, living room, bathroom, two bedrooms and a stunning terrace that overlooks the Notting Hill neighborhood.

These domestic spaces lend an element of practicality to the spherical abode in spite of the over-the-top blueprints that lie at the heart of this Tom Dixon venture.
