Everydays:The First 5000 Days by Beeple

By: Malcolm Ford This picture speaks to the scale of what can be accomplished with the combination of years of effort. It’s simultaneously hopelessly inspiring and soul crushingly at the same. A reminder of what can be accomplished each day and something I struggle to find the time for somehow. While it’s hard to pickContinue reading “Everydays:The First 5000 Days by Beeple”

“The Moon” by Ling Jian

By: Malcolm Ford Just a beautiful personification of the celestial body. If that’s the exact effect the artist was going for. The overall pose reminds me of the arc the moon will follow at night. The expression she gives off is one of true disinterest, as if the viewer is the second thought in herContinue reading ““The Moon” by Ling Jian”

“Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman” by Roy Lichtenstein

By: Malcolm Ford A truly intricate piece of work with a very interesting but simple design. Reminds me of sludge or pond scum flowing down a strong river. The base of the chair and ottoman perfectly mimic the action of the roots of the tree trying to grasp onto and return to the soil likeContinue reading ““Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman” by Roy Lichtenstein”

“Home in the Mountains” by Catherine Haggarty

By: Malcolm Ford I find this piece really interesting in how it is abstract and almost doodle-like. Personally, I just see a mixture of a lot of jagged or sharp teeth and a myriad of faces along with a few shapes and forms like the foxes or the honey badger among other things. There isContinue reading ““Home in the Mountains” by Catherine Haggarty”

“Walk the Light” Genesis Tramaine

by: Malcolm Ford It’s hard to describe Genesis Tramaine’s specific style for portraiture but maybe that’s the point of their work. It’s easy to see just from the way it looks how it was created with raw emotion and expression but also deep consideration of what to highlight or draw attention to in that portrait,Continue reading ““Walk the Light” Genesis Tramaine”

Artistically Speaking: De Blob

Hey, so today I wanna talk about a video game that has been a part of my life since childhood and apparently everyone else’s too! Coming out originally in 2008, De blob is a platformer that has a small irregularly shaped blob (hence the name) that has the power to color the world that heContinue reading “Artistically Speaking: De Blob”

Unveiling for Michael Rakowitz’s ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ in Trafalgar Square (Lamassau)

by: Malcolm Ford I feel this is a great unveiling of Michael Rakowitz’s project as a whole. ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ is the name of the project which seems to be a protest against the destruction and frankly pillaging of Iraqi art to be put in Western museums. A common and most strikingContinue reading “Unveiling for Michael Rakowitz’s ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ in Trafalgar Square (Lamassau)”

“Speakers Outside Justice Center 11” Portland, OR

by Malcolm Ford The crowd suggests that this demonstration was successful and all who could draw the nerve were able to speak their hearts at the stage and explain some of their frustrations with such a faulty system. Those few got to be the burning spears of the offense of police and judicial reform. YouContinue reading ““Speakers Outside Justice Center 11” Portland, OR”
