Graffiti // Monday, December 29, 2014
Baer is obviously super talented at illustration and using a spray can. There is a whole lot going on here and you could get lost in it for quite a while. Also, psychedelics are probably encouraged and will enhance viewing.

Best of 2014: Photographs by Hermann Försterling

Erotica // Monday, December 29, 2014
Hermann Försterling is a German painter and photographer whose photographs of the human body we have been admiring for the last couple weeks. Using a copper plate etching technique that transfers the photographs to hand-made papers, the artists creates often uncomfortable images of an almost corpselike presentation of the human body. At the same time, the photographs are a beautiful celebration of the human form. Be sure to explore his site for more work!
