Eye Poetry – a photo blog by Irene Suchocki. 

Irene is a self-taught freelance photographer in Montreal. What we love about her photography and blog is her experimentation with different styles and techniques. She successfully evokes a certain mood, and a little bit of mystery in each of her photographs. She likes to consider each photograph a little poem for the eyes.

Serena Mitnik-Miller, Painter, San Francisco

Serena’s water colors make it clear how much she loves the ocean, and shape and form for sure. Primarily composed of concentric shapes, swelling orbs and pulsing bubbles, her free-flowing works strike the perfect balance between geometry and fine art. Through the mediums of watercolor, printmaking and photography, she explores the abundant complexities of water, light, color and movement.

Gidon Bing, Sculptor, New Zealand

We discovered Auckland, New Zealand-based sculptor Gidon Bing through one of Todd Selby’s ever-intriguing photo shoots, showcasing the artist’s studio. What we love about Bing’s work is that his forms and images are specifically inspired by nature and architecture, in particular the architecture of the Czech avante garde of the 1920s.

Bing is a full time painter and sculptor based in Auckland. He has both academic and formal training as a sculptor and has lived and worked in Europe, the Middle East and America. His work has been acquired by collectors in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Bing focuses mainly on modern, bent plywood sculpture and furniture.

 

The principle materials Bing uses are wood, metal (iron and bronze) and natural paints. He utilizes traditional Japanese wood bending and shaping techniques to achieve his forms.

Social Media Art’s Social Revolution
This month’s ARTnews magazine includes an extensive feature by veteran arts writer Barbara Pollack on social media art. In her article, she features Hyperallergic’s #TheSocialGraphexhibition and many of the artists in the show, including An Xiao, Jennifer Dalton, Benjamin Lotan of Social Printshop and Man Bartlett, whose “#24hKith” (2010) was performed in our offices at the end of November.

This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in understanding the emergence of social media art and how artists are using the medium to create work.
