STUPIDKRAP: Ben Frost

Posted: February 23rd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: ART, Art News, Ben Frost | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off

STUPIDKRAP - Ben FrostBy far my favorite artist – Ben Frost – has just finished a new set of 24 pieces, continuing the series of painting onto found objects. These include pharmaceutical packages including: Viagra, Cymbalta, Endone, Cialis, Morphine, Ventolin Botox and Sertra, as well as food packaging such as: Corn Flakes, Smarties, Oreo Cookies, Coco Pops, Rice Bubbles and Throaties. Check them all here: http://stupidkrap.myshopify.com/

Frost is known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings that take inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photorealism and sign-writing. Subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confrontational and often controversial. Read the full article »»»»


Edvard Munch: The Scream May Fetch $80m at Auction

Posted: February 22nd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: ART, Art News | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off

Edvard Munch - The Scream May Fetch $80m at AuctionA version of The Scream, one of the world’s most famous paintings, will go on sale this May in New York and is expected to fetch at least $US80 million, Sotheby’s auctioneers say. Norwegian businessman Petter Olsen, whose father was a friend and patron of artist Edvard Munch, currently owns the work. It will go on the block in New York on May 2, headlining the impressionist and modern art sales.

Sotheby’s describes The Scream as “one of the most instantly recognisable images in both art history and popular culture, perhaps second only to the Mona Lisa.” There are four versions of the painting, which features a man screaming and clutching his head against a wavy, brightly-coloured landscape, but this is the only one in private hands. The influence of the image, described by Munch as recording a moment of paralysing anxiety during a walk with friends in the hills above Oslo, has few parallels. Read the full article »»»»


Favorite New Thought: Ray Caesar

Posted: October 22nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off

One of our favorite thoughts Ray Caesar, has an exhibition opening this weekend at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. “A Dangerous Inclination” continues on Caesar’s cathartic theme of elegantly haunting works. Caesar’s latest works disclose a more personal side to his narratives. While maintaning the self disclosure theme “A Dangerous Inclination” has definite notes of difference.  Ray Caesar was born in 1958 in London. At an early age, his family moved to Toronto, Canada, where he currently resides. From 1977—80 he attended Ontario College of Art. Of his work, Caesar says” Virtually all of my work deals with coming to terms with the subconscious elements to my life and the way I experience the world around me. My work seems to keep on the regular themes of “Hunting Back Innocence” and “Revelations of Light” and the painful process of “Self Examination” and hidden voices calling like sirens in the night. Premonitions and the worlds of pleasure and pain and ugliness and beauty and humiliation and dignity. For many people what I do is art, but for me the pictures are a communication from my subconscious to my conscious mind. That being said, I love and enjoy what I do and on one level it’s always simply been about sitting in the sun and making pretty pictures” M★C READ MORE

At an early age, his family moved to Toronto, Canada, where he currently resides. From 1977—80 he attended Ontario College of Art, followed by 17 years from 1980—96 working in the art & photography department of the Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto, documenting disturbing cases of child abuse, surgical reconstruction, psychology, and animal research. Coupled with inspiration from surrealists Kahlo and Dali, Caesar’s experiences at the hospital continue to influence his artwork. His haunting imagery is created digitally using 3D modeling software called Maya, mastered while working in digital animation for television and film industries from 1998—2001. In 1999, Caesar received a Primetime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Special Effects in a series. Read the full article »»»»

“I’ve always loved men. Always loved men. But I’ve been one of those people who have never really wanted to be owned. Love becomes another thing. It becomes a bigger thing than a sexual drive. I must say, I think I’ve put all my energies and everything into painting. That is really my love. Painting has consumed my whole life”
