Luke Rudolf

This is Luke Rudolf a painter I was introduced today by my good friend James Parkinson.

This is a small piece he has written about his work:
'My paintings hijack the visual language of modernist abstraction and the figurative tradition of portraiture by using the signifiers of abstraction itself to determine the features that form the resulting pseudo portraits. By creating a psychological domain that requires a cognitive, physiognomic and often darkly humorous unraveling on the part of the viewer, I propose a disruption through the destabilising of values and rationales that are brought to the work.'

Another Steal

I am afraid like a broken record I have again returned to the blog
The only reason being these great drawings of minerals and crystals by Marissa Textor.

These also reminded me of the paintings done by Carly Waito shown on

Maybe theres a new fad for minerals and stuff coming like there was with bears and deer.
