Death And Taxes: Wayne Hollowell's DEATH BECOMES YOU Series Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-07-04 at 12.22.52 PM(Image by Wayne Hollowell)

I'm a fan of Wayne Hollowell's fan-powered, often ghastly, always evocative celeb portraits, and he's outdone himself with his macabre “Death Becomes You” series. Above is Jayne Mansfield's final spin. Click here for Sharon Tate, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, Edith Piaf, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood, Bobbi Kristina Brown and Anna Nicole Smith.

ECSTATIC Process Comments (0)

Check out Ecstatic Portraits: Scenes and Shorts, a Michael Van Devere retrospective.

From a release:

Ecstatic Portraits captures the breadth of his work, from experimental to narrative and to his more recent lyrical shorts. Van Devere’s films are, in part, portraits of young men in ecstatic crisis. Their journey is often isolated, provoking an overwhelming search for connection and belonging. From the statuesque John Harvard (Alex Breaux, Red Speedo) to the criminal mind of Edgar Allan Poe’s William Wilson, all  seek transcendence and their ultimate destination.

Drawn Together: Student Artist's Class-y Move Comments (0)

I love what this young man did—he created portraits of his more than 400 fellow graduating classmates and surprised them by hanging them in the school for graduation:

I remember being similarly preoccupied by this sort of pursuit when I was a kid. In elementary school, pre-yearbooks, I would often get my classmates to sign their names in rows on lined paper so I had an extra record of them. It ended when some brats in third grade wrote disparaging remarks alongside their autographs.

When I was graduating high school, I went around and had as many of my classmates as I could do self-portraits, which I still have. I posted them in 2009, with some enhancements.

Okay, my results were more on the whimsical (and occasionally disturbing) side, but they were illuminating nonetheless!

All You Can Bear Comments (0)

Scott Brooks is in a new three-person show—Curios—opening in Australia. His portion consists of somewhat fantasist images of somewhat fantastic bears from DC, Baltimore and the surrounding environs.

From the artist:

Curio is defined as a rare, unusual, or intriguing object, and I think all these handsome gentleman, and the ladies I painted for the show, fall under this definition.

*widget boy cultureWhen Brezhnev & Honecker kissed in a painting, it felt subversive. Now that Trump & Putin are sucking face, it feels like, “Gay is the worst insult the artist could come up with?”

*widget boy cultureI can't blame Stevie Nicks for staying far away from Night of a Thousand Stevies ... but it sure is fun to read about it.
