New Artists to Discover/ Established Artists to Re-Discover

Untitled - detail - Lauren DiCioccio
from her paper pad reconfigurations series

As I mentioned last week, we had guests for most of last week so I'm a little behind.  It was a wonderful week with friends but now I'm trying to get my "train" back on it's usual track.

With that in mind I thought I'd share a few links to wonderful artists I have discovered.

Lauren DiCioccio works as a painter, makes drawings, objects and installations.  I really like her exploration of objects and her paper work.

Love Is Calling - Installation at David Zwirner- Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama is a fascinating artist.  Click on her name and it will take you to a site with lots of information about her including a biography.  She began painting dots when she was a child and has never stopped.  Some of her work has the feeling of a primitive artist while some, such as the installation, looks like work from the 1960's.  She if prolific.

Tapestry - Man Ray - 1911 
 composed of swatches from his father's tailor shop
In collection of the Pompidou

Man Ray is the famous DaDa artist often remembered for what he called photograms or what he called Rayographs which were images produced by laying objects directly on photographic paper.  I found the above pictured Tapestry to be charming in it's use of materials connected to his father.  If you click on his name you will discover an excellent site about him and his work called the Man Ray Trust.

Fountain - Marcel Duchamp

  Previously I referenced a sculpture titled Fountaine and incorrectly attributed it to Man Ray.  That work was created by fellow DaDaist Marcel Duchamp.

Thank you for stopping by
Studio 24-7.
My goal is to always share something about
art that might be of interest to YOU.
