Spanish born, Bernardí Roig creates beautiful multi-media installations that boggle the mind.

Bernardí Roig is obsessed with death and immortality with aesthetics and eroticism, and with the “idee fixe” that the thinking man must reclaim his forfeited ability to relate to one another on an intimate level. He realizes that to truly communicate, we need a dialogue of more than the spoken word.

I know their aims are very different, but I think the way that he uses fluorescent lamps are similar with Dan Flavin:

He is a hyperrealist Turkish artist whose paintings are oil on canvas. I didn’t see any artist like him who paints as real as photograph. Some of my friends think that these paintings are photograph, when they have seen these.

Ian Davenport At Work

Ian Davenport is a British artist whose painting techniques remind me the methods we use in the course VA 202. I found some info about the artist on wikipedia:

“Many of Davenport’s works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface. He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, meaning the viewer can see their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works.

Davenport’s use of dripped paint and gravity has been compared to similar techniques employed by Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis in the 1950s and 1960s. Other possible influences on his work include Jackson Pollock and Bridget Riley.”

Pencils made from cremated humans

A freaky idea, but it’s cool. “Artist Nadine Jarvis can create pencils from the carbon of human cremains. ‘240 pencils can be made from an average body of ash’. Just think — after you die, you can live on through other people’s sketchbooks!”
