Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Bits and Pieces of Such Utter Randomness That You Might Want to Call a Nurse

by Suzanne on May 4th, 2011

Behold these news items of great importance and visual beauty that I found while clearing out my tabs...

Why make separate posts when you can squash everything together in one? EXACTLY!

JESSICA HARRISON

I reported about her current London solo show here and I'm happy to say that Jealous Gallery allowed me to take pictures of her sculptures. You can find them over here on Flickr.

DOUG FOSTER / UNKLE


Heretics' Gate by Doug Foster/Unkle, photo by Wurzeltod , 2011 - click to enlarge

Last weekend, after my visit to Jealous, I took a stroll down Camden Road and ended up at the beautifully dilapidated St Michael's church where Doug Foster is currently showing his Heretics' Gate (music by UNKLE). Do check it out if you're near Camden.

FEEBRILE


Improvisation avec Lizzie by Féebrile, 2011 - click to enlarge (slightly)

.. and staying goff, I stumbled upon Féebrile's most gorgeous photo yet. It's entitled Improvisation avec Lizzie and it's one of the most painting-like photographs my eyes have ever seen. Such beauty.

ALEX CF


Pharaoh Nophru ka by Alex CF, 2011 - click to enlarge (slightly)

Alex CF is on a creative roll. He's crafted his most astonishing mummy to date, Pharaoh Nophru ka, and is looking for people to collaborate on a new project:

"Over the next year I will be making my own interpretation of alice in wonderland. Call it trite, but I believe my take on this classic childrens books will be original enough to warrant its creation. I am making all of the practical effects myself, and I am slowly but surely roping in a number of friends to help me film, edit and produce the short. I am looking for anyone willing to help out, from location seeking to costume to acting.

Amy Jane by Jessica Harrison, 2010 - click to enlarge

Jessica Harrison gained massive Tumblr notoriety last year for her 2010 Breaking series and quite deservingly so as she is a super talented trans-genre multimedia artist and there is so much more to her work than just mutilated porcelain sculptures - even though that's what I'm focussing on here.

London's Jealous Gallery will be showing the complete collection of her Breaking figurines alongside prints from the end of April until mid-May. Details below.
