Fall Deep with Marjolein Caljouw

Illustration // Thursday, July 31, 2014
'Ever since I could hold a pencil I loved to draw. I started reading very early and was attracted to books. I wrote my own stories and little poems with illustrations. I also have around 30 diaries and I used to draw in them too. To capture funny/sad/special moments and look at them from different perspectives...'

"Nudes" by Victoria Selbach

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 31, 2014
This morning we take a look Victoria Selbach's nudes. Victoria uses light and shadow to as an underlying abstraction to what the mind is tuned to see: the woman and human form. The light moving throughout many of her paintings only partially reveals what is present and creates the architecture of each piece.

Amelie Barnathan Does Space Disco

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 31, 2014
Amelie Barnathan has created a series of artworks for Forage Press dedicated to the musical movement of "Space Disco," a genre of music she calls "a comet in the history of music and one of the coolest and tackiest eighties movements ever." Forage Press is a publication that celebrates the union of visual art and music, featuring an eclectic mix of creative minds who love both of these crucial art forms. Barnathan's exploration of Space Disco depicts the merging of disco music with all that is "futuristic"--robots, cosmic sounds, intergalactic themes. The costumes of these Space Disco bands followed suit, as reflected in these funky, bizarre drawings. 

The work of Robyn Cumming

Photography // Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Robyn Cumming’s aesthetic can be described as Steel Magnolias gone awry, but in the best way possible. Working from the heaps and piles of the stereotypical female imagery we all know and love (or love-to-hate, depending on your own alignments), the Toronto-based artist creates a body of work exploring, exploiting, and evolving the ordinary into something a little more sinister, and far more eccentric.

Music Video: Beck "Heart is a Drum" directed by Sophie Mueller

Music // Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Just recently we got back into listening to Beck's 1996 epic "Odelay", and found that his 2014 album "Morning Phase" was quite nice as well. But the reason we are here today is because the very talented Sophie Mueller directed a video for Beck's "Heart Is a Drum" track. Black and white, a little eerie, and for the best track on the album all makes this a nice watch.
