Tape to New Heights: The Work of Rebecca Ward

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
You learn a lot in this art world, and I was still under the assumption that using tape was not the most sturdy way to put together an installation. Brooklyn-based Rebecca Ward isn't afraid of a little tape, so much so that she is creating some fantastic installation and sculptural works with the material. Ward will open a new show, cow tipping (yep, that's the name), at London's Ronchini Gallery this April 12, 2013. Cow tipping.

Ben Hasset's "Dedoublement"

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
The talented Ben Hassett shoots the porcelain-skinned Magdalena Frackowiack for the "Dedoublement" editorial in the October 2011 issue of Numero France. This series addresses the theme of doubling, presenting the model multiplied and composited over herself like a visual montage of sorts. Each piece presents a different theme from spiked masks and leather to dark lips and animal furs, generating a dynamic, sex-charged composition of multiples. The beautiful Magdalena seems to take on monumental proportions as her image interacts with itself, sparking chemistry in a strange, sensual crossing of portraits.
