Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

James Jean’s OVM Strata Animation

by Suzanne on September 23rd, 2011


OVM Strata by James Jean, graphite and digital – click for full version

Because this study for O\\\////M is so very very pretty, because I haven’t featured any James Jean art here in a while and because this is my damn blog, let’s just pretend this is Tumblr and I can just post ONE image sans much text cause I’m deep like that.

Make sure to check out the much more glorious, original version here since I had to drop a few frames and resize for hosting reasons.

WurzelArt Gazette March 2010 – Grab A Sammich

by Suzanne on March 12th, 2010


Work in progress by Joao Ruas, 2010

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes and please pardon the radio silence. Our Angelique Houtkamp show was insanely busy and Angelique is now back home in Amsterdam and I can’t tell you how relieved I am that she didn’t get squeezed to death. Even our glass domes and the baby skulls are still intact – which clearly defies logic if you’ve seen the crowds at the opening reception. Some originals and the baby skulls are still for sale, so keep your eyes glued to Nelly Duff – I will upload details soonish.

Anyhow, it’s March; which means the spring awakening of the beaux arts. Lots and lots and lots to report about. But since I have absolutely no idea where to start, I decided to give you some sneak previews of what my favourite WurzelArtists® have been up to recently.

This is only a small selection, but as you can see, people have been as busy as bees on coke and 2010 is going to be an amazing year for the visual arts, methinks.

JOAO RUAS

Joao has been up to A LOT and it’s always fascinating to see all the diverse things he’s directing his talents to besides his work for Fables.

JEREMY ENECIO

The maître of tentacles and albino amazons has recently impressingly widened his repertoire to zombies for Zombies in Love at Gallery Nucleus.

For those who hadn’t noticed: Egon Schiele has been reincarnated in the shell of Adara Sánchez Anguiano and given a box of happy coloured crayons.

MISS VAN


Poupées by Miss Van – click to enlarge

Meanwhile, does it seem like someone’s slowly running out of ideas?! Miss Van releases an overpriced giclee of her 5-year-old Poupées. Hmm…

MARINA BYCHKOVA


Cixi (in progress) by Marina Bychkova, 2010 – click to enlarge

Marina, au contraire, has been tirelessly working her poor little paws off on one of her newest creations, Cixi. Here seen in progress.

In other doll news, Julien Martinez has spookified yet another unsuspecting Blythe doll. Say hello to Véruka Vampirica.

ISABELLE ROYET-JOURNOUD


Wither by Isabelle Royet-Journoud, 2010 – click to enlarge

… and finally, Mme Isabelle Royet-Journoud looks a bit like a customised undead Blythe doll herself in this masterpiece of a self-portrait.

While here at Wurzeltod HQ, I’ve been mainly standing annoyingly in front of yet even more great art
