I just couldn't go past posting this extraordinary visual explosion of colour by Dutch artist Suzan Drummen. She uses thousands of individually placed glass, mirrors, metal and precious stones, that reflect light and give a 3D impact effect.
A beautiful tribute to Ruth Asawa in the lead-up to her May 2013 US exhibition.
Grace, beauty and an amazing technique in this 3 min video called 'Objects and Apparitions'
She also does the most amazing live casting: another (3 min) short video that is a large family portrait all through casting. ... try and stop yourself from moving to this music too.
Everything is Remix
This is a great 4 part online video series that is so worth listening to. Its all about appropriation and nothing is off limits. Artists take note!
I especially loved 'Part 3 - The Elements of Creativity'
Congrats to Fleur and Alex Wiber for this great online creative approach to providing gallery space for artists. With 'art as the unifying force', they have created a space to link artists with collectors.
and my site at
"The Secret" produced in 2012 has the space to be exhibited at World Trade Centre gallery, as part of the MARS Art Rooms, 25 artists@WTC, 5 August- 30 Sept. Looking forward to the feedback!
Now what do we think about this? ... another Banksy artwork has been cut down from a London street and will be auctioned , just a few months after another was sold for $750 pounds.
The source of the murals removal is unknown but it is already up for sale.
The Sincura Group says they have 'salvaged for renovation' a street piece "No Ball Games" which shows two children playing with a sign that reads No Ball Games.
A website statement says "With extensive building works taking place in the local vicinity, and further concerns upon its safety, the piece has been removed to be sensitively restored to its former glory."
The same company created outrage early in 2013 after it had sold another Banksy piece - Slave Labour, depicting a young boy hunched over a sewing machine making a Union Jack.
So what do we think? who owns the street piece..the building owners, the passers by, the community or the artist? And who benefits from the cash?
Is this just another from of theft and who really owns these valuable works of street art?
I’m influenced by contemporary issues and interested in questioning everyday patterns by intervening and provoking alternative forms of discourse.
