You’ve definitely seen Alexa Meade‘s work before. Some of her photographs have circled the internet like crazy. She’s come out with a couple new brilliant pieces in her classic style, where she paints on people and photographs them to make the three dimensional space seem two dimensional.
Illustration artist Alessandro Diddi creates work that transcends the second and the third dimensions. Diddi’s drawings are optical illusions that interact with the artist himself and the surroundings of the piece.
Ron Ulicny’s new show “Paintures” at Spoke Art Gallery features 10 new wall mounted sculptures, Ulicny’s new body of work blurs the line between three and two dimensional arts, creating compelling studies of pattern, color and form in a multifaceted survey of works that are seemingly uncategorizable as either paintings or sculptures. Ulicny’s recontextualization of common items into new and distinct forms pushes the boundaries of his medium. By utilizing and transforming these everyday household goods, Ulicny “paints” a new future for sculpture in a presentation of large scale works that blend elements of craftsmanship with high concept. Furthermore, the show intends to jab at former art practices like that of Pop-Art with his “200 Progresso Soup Cans” and Abstract Expressionism with his “Ghost of John Spilsbury (blue)”.
