Diana Al-hadid is an artist who’s work I first saw at the Marienne Boesky Gallery in New York. Her sculpture “Trace of a Fictional Third”(2011) absolutely took my breath away. (see my post here) Her latest exhibition “The Fates” just opened at Secession in Vienna. I really love her sculpture work. I am intrigued by the floral yet geometric composition […]
I had the great pleasure of going to visit the University of Alabama Birmingham’s brand new art building: The Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts. Currently on display on the exterior of the building is Amanda Bowder’s Magic Chromaticity, where the building is draped with fabric. Read about the fabric installation on AL.com. Another one of the […]
At this years Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, I had the great pleasure of seeing Mood Indigo – a new film by Michel Gondry based on the 1947 novel by Boris Vian. It was an incredibly creative film. I would expect nothing less from the director of “The Science of Sleep” and “Eternal Sunshine of the […]
I’ve had this sculpture/installation by Henrique Olivera in my inspiration folder for a while now. This massive winding sculpture is positively beautiful. It’s quite incredible how he can make wood seem so fluid. Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira (previously) recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da […]
Artist Jeremy Geddes paintings are absolutely stunning. Photo realistic super etherial/fantasy combined with subtlety and emotion. Hyper-realism at its finest.

I am in love with this huge installation by Jacob Hashimoto titled “Gas Giant“. The installation took 25 Days, 7 people, and over 3,000 hand made and suspended kites. I am absolutely stunned by the complexity of the installation as well fascinated by the intricate patterns. I wish I could see this stunning work in person. […]
Olafur Eliasson has as fascinating installation at Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art opening up tomorrow 8/20/14. As seen on Dezeen, the landscape of rocks and riverbeds contrast against the bright white stark walls. This is a super interesting installation for Eliasson. I’ve seen a lot of his spatial-installation work, but none have drawn so much on […]
This weekend I had the insane pleasure of peeking in on Gallery Weekend Berlin. I got to see some incredible art. One artist in particular stood out to me: Bjöern Dahlem at Galerie Guido W. Baudach. His installation “Orbits of High Velocity Starts” is this gorgeous tangled floating wood with balls of various light fixtures […]
When I was abroad in Prague, Czech Republic – I was able to go to the DOX Center for Contemporary Art. What a fabulous place. The building is off the beaten path but well worth the cab ride. It the center, there was an amazing and emotional exhibition called “The Silent Strength of Liu Xia.” you […]
Preview Berlin was a really interesting experience. There was a wide variety of work represented and some absolutely stunning pieces.

It toronto this past weekend, I got to experience their annual one-night-only art event Nuit Blanche. Outdoor and indoor art installations all over the city! In particular, I enjoyed this installation titled “Top Down” by BRDGlab. In their words: This installation creates an artificial topography from our city’s diverse building heights and reduces that landscape […]
Really neat visual depiction of multiplication. ’11 x’ series : Stefanie Posavec.
I just loved this video by Corey Archangel – He took a film and stretched its pixels. It was truly beautiful but maintained the original video audio. Check out the video below. Cory Archangel’s “Colors” clip from the Tate Modern
Oskar Fischinger’s “Raumlichtkunst” was an incredible film. It’s colors and Geometry were just gorgeous. The sound in combination with the high impact visuals in the dark room left me a bit woozy and foggy after, but well worth it. I can’t imagine making such a film before computers. Dont miss watching the video below. Oskar […]
I really enjoyed this piece by Giuseppe Penone called “Tree of 12 Metres.” There is something beautiful about taking a man-made/milled/manipulated item, and then carving it back to resemble the organic form that it once was before we touched it in the first place. Quite poetic.
Damien Hurst’s exhibition at the tate modern was thrilling. It was outrageous, arrogant, outlandish, thoughtful, meticulous, grotesque, and beautiful. Butterflies paintings contrasted with paintings made from dead flies.. live flies, live butterflies, dead animals in formaldehyde, diamonds, and pills contrasted with cigarettes. wow. I still dont know how I quite feel about the exhibition other […]
I had the fabulous pleasure of exploring the Tate Modern in London on my most recent Artcation. Below are a lot of the pieces I found interesting.
I really enjoyed Pete Schlute’s exhibition at Beta Pictoris Gallery. The geometric forms really grabbed me… in a very deep way. The combination of the sharp lines with delicate charcoal was stunning in combo with hints of subtle color. Well done. I want them all. Go Checkout the exhibition!

People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere […]
In my travels to Copenhagen, I was able to go to the fabulous museum of Arken. I was pleasantly surprised by this Jean-Michael Basquait & Andy Warhol Exhibition. I had not seen many of these collaborative paintings before, and was thrilled by the size of the collection as well as the include of famous pieces as well. Stunning.
When I went to The opening of A Dog From Hell at Beta Pictoris Gallery, two pieces really caught my attention. They were Derek Cracco’s “The Space Between.” It was really wonderful to see this work coming from a Birmingham native! I personally really enjoyed these pieces and the extra visual dimension that they gave […]
I had the awesome privilege of getting to attend the opening of Jason Burgess and Pat Potter’s installation in Anniston, AL called “Lambent Ways” – a celebration of light and life. It was stunning.
