We've posted about Rebecca Chaperone's surreal landscapes before, but wanted to update on her latest series of Acrylic paintings of crystals. The crystals are simple geometrically but hold within them a tumult of complex colors. She uses a similar palette as for her landcapes: a pastel-candy-colored selection that suggests diffused light. Although the colors bleed into each other, Chaperone retains a crisp clarity of geometry in her figures.

Exhibiting a technically meticulously detailed array of acrylic paintings, Toronto based artist Jacub Gagnon opens his solo show at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles on Saturday June, 21st. He creates these exacting works with minute brushstrokes and layers, creating tensions between the artificial and the natural that reach to realms of the propped, plausible and absurd. Illuminating the undeniably effective visual contrasts with a stark black background, Gagnon stages a beautiful realistic portrayal of characters. The odd, the absurd and the frictions of nature intrigue and attract while showcasing impressive talent.

We have been seeing some incredible installation artwork recently, and we just came across these installation, or full gallery transformations, from Heike Weber. The way she does the work is by permanentmarkers on acrylic floor and walls. More views after the jump . . .
