Earlier this week, we posted news of Judith Supine’s work popping up around the streets of Brooklyn, something we hadn’t seen in some time. Now, a number of Supine’s wheatpastes with the illustration work of Jesse Hazelip have found their way outside as well. The additional layering of cholo style tattoos on Supine’s characters makes for a completely different result, plenty more menacing! If you want to see them in person, we suggest walking through the streets of Williamsburg and look for the fluorescent green, not hard to miss.

As we noted on the site last week, ee just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans... there will be a 22' Viking ship if you need more reasons to go.

Last Friday we pass by The Cotton Candy Machine Gallery in Brooklyn to take a close look of The Candy Escape, the new exhibition by two very talented artist: Camilla d’Errico and Brandi Milne. Camilla’s drawings are full with emotion, containing an innocent and passionate story to tell. Brandi's work is inspired by classic cartoons and an abundance of nostalgic child playthings.

This past summer, we were very impressed by the new series of paintings by Brooklyn-based Alyssa Monks. Today, we look at a few new works, as well as a few studies from Monks, works that are characterized by the appearence that the subjects are being captured in the fog of a shower, with a bit of hiding and protection for the models.

Last spring, Brooklyn-based photographer, Daniel Kukla, took refuge for a month in a cabin in the Joshua Tree National Park as part of an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service. From sun up to sun down, Kukla roamed the desert with a mirror, easel, and camera. He photographed the propped mirror to catch the opposing elements within the environment, creating abnormal yet striking imagery as a result.

I have been drawn to Allison Sommers' work since the moment I laid eyes on it simply because I had never seen anything like it before. I still haven't. Nothing screams juxtaposition more than Allison's seamless blend of soft and disgusting.
