Photographer Pelle Cass’s composite photographs use time-lapse techniques to create chaotic sporting events. The artist has said that part of the fun in creating each work is being able to subvert the typical athletic affair and put the crowds in the fields, not in the stands. The artist doesn’t alter any of the settings in the work; he only takes out and adds in figures.
Bom.K continues to evolve his varied, bombastic style with recent work that appears as a controlled cacophony of influences. Works like “Anything” (above) implement spraypaint and the canvas, offering a look at approaches the artist has used throughout his career. He was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
Ozabu only uses pencil and graphite in her startling figurative works on paper, using elegant linework and subtle iconography in mysterious minimalist pieces. The Japanese artist is self-taught, and the artist’s long fascination with birds comes through in how figures are accompanied by and are overtaken by winged creatures.
Ronit Baranga balances mischievous and playful themes in her sculptures. And in Booth Gallery‘s upcoming show, “Demons’ Playground,” new examples of this figurative work are collected. Baranga was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Nigel Cox’s sparse scenes pit realistic figures against vague or turbulent backdrops. The solitude exhibited in these oil paintings may recall the work of artists like Brett Armory, with entirely different approaches to environment.
Jacob Brostrup’s oil paintings overlay backdrops and scenes, creating dreamlike journeys into the subconscious. Figures and the natural world blend with both unruliness and precision, carefully crafted works that make use of the artist’s talents with color and depth.
