Geoffrey Farmer's Sculptural Collages

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer's sculpture collage 'Leaves of Grass' takes cultural icons and images from five decades (1935-1985) and 900 issues of LIFE Magazine. It spans 124 feet. "It wasn’t until we had finished making the work that I realized the piece is very much about factory life. Factory farming, the war factory, the death factory, the automobile factory, the Hollywood factory, the personality factory…. History emerging out of a factory. In the end, it takes on the appearance of a conveyor belt."

Palladini's Ambiguous Eroticism

Erotica // Sunday, October 20, 2013
Much of Jeffrey Palladini's work brandishes a sort of ambiguous eroticism ‘ a vaguely (and sometimes not-so-vaguely) sexual tension that shows through even the most neutral imagery. The multiple figures which populate many of my recent works share narratives that are compelling but not quite overt, encouraging the viewer to project their own stories and points of view into their interpretations. Palladini is a San Francisco based creative.
