ghostpatrol + cat rabbit = cool softie art

behold another brilliant art combo. i wish i could see this exhibition of softies entitled while you sleep, a collaboration 4 years in the making. cat rabbit has done the delightfully subversive sewing here, and ghostpatrol (seen here previously) has drawn the illustrations that inspired them.

if these two artists aren’t the same person, i think they should get married and have babies.

lucky australians (or tourist types) wandering around fitzroy in victoria can see them up close and personal at the gorker gallery from february 19 – march 8. so cool!


jay kelly paintings and sculpture

i need order, some defined sense of balance and neutrality today and what better way to get it than through looking at these mixed media sculpture and oil works on vellum from artist jay kelly?

michelle stitzlein sculpture

whoa! found object artist extraordinaire paula tipped me off to these supercool moth series of wall sculptures, made from repurposed objects by ohio artist michelle stitzlein. these pieces are cobbled together in the most pristine way from old piano keys, tin cans, license plates and bicycle tires, among other things.

ricochet studio ceramic sculpture

ricochet_studio_ceramic_pencil_sharpener_detail

I really used to enjoy writing with sharp number two pencils, so I’m slightly nuts about this old school pencil sharpener sculpture, fashioned out of bone china from Vancouver’s Ricochet Studio. Richochet is a collective of artists who caucus together and then create limited edition ceramic works. The pieces in the collection are beautifully detailed and have a great retro modern feel.
