Eric Meola's Color-Blocked Documentary Photography

Photography // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
It’s clear Eric Meola is attracted to bright colors. His documentary photography is, at times, so focused on color and patterns that it reads at first as an abstract painting. His series have addressed subjects ranging from lights in Iceland to storms in middle America. At times he adjusts the color in his photos, changing them to match the intensity of the images in his memory.

Photography // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Tony Gleaton, a portrait photographer focusing on black life, died on August 15th at the age of 67. Born in Detroit, Gleaton began his photography in the late 1970s in New York fashion photography, but quit to pursue what would become a decades-long exploration of what it means to be black. He photographed African Americans in the United States, but also traveled to Central and South America and Samoa for his portraits. 

Alex Garant is the Queen of Double Eyes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
After looking at Alex Garant’s oil paintings, portraits swirling with extra eyes and lips, we’re actually a little nauseated. The paintings are beautifully executed but give the viewer a feeling that they’re drunk or disoriented. Garant calls herself “Queen of Double Eyes,” and intends the effects as an “exorcism of the soul,” her “protagonists trying to escape themselves.” 

Japanese Artist M'onma's Trance-Created Drawings

Illustration // Tuesday, August 25, 2015
To create his dreamlike drawings, Japanese artist M’onma enters a trance, where he describes his entire body glowing and a loss of vision. He also reports an invisible presence guiding his hand. M’onma calls this state of being a “visitation,” and he began creating work in this way when he was in his ‘40s, after decades of making work he felt was unsatisfying. The drawings are surreal and use graphite, ink and colored pencil to portray meandering narratives that include religious figures, animals, spirits, and geometric play.
