Back Talk: A Conversation with Kelly Allen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Kelly Allen’s new body of work “Hidden Seeking” (which opens at Thinkspace Gallery this Saturday, July 7) continues the artist’s investigation of graphic symbolism and popular cultural imagery, in collision with the natural world. Deriving her inspiration from variegated sources, her work is both illustrative and symbolically elusive. The artist’s selective use, and omission, of imagery is in keeping with her highly refined and recognizable aesthetic.

The Domino Starry Night

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Nothing says determination more than a man who want to recreate Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night from 7,000 dominos. Nothing more than a second attempt that takes about 11 hours total to build. Domino artist, Flippycat, who has done a similar effect to the Mona Lisa, created his very own Vincent van Dominogh, knocking dominoes over to create the famed painting, Starry Night. Amazing, a tad for the sake of it, and amazing all over again.

Blade Runner as Watercolors, Part 1

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 02, 2012
Apparently, this is Part 1, and there will be more. Somebody who really, really loves Blade Runner (one thing we have learned while at Juxtapoz; people love Super Mario, Legos, Star Wars, and Ridley Scott, but you knew that) created the opening 12 minutes of the film using over 3285 aquarelle paintings. Harrison Ford's acting is better in watercolor form.
