From Joe The Quilter - 
On this quilt, just out of the machine, I have combined the cut up paintings with another of my recent ideas: paying homage to the great quiltmakers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. This one contains a quilted version of the only known picture of Harriet Powers, maker of the fantastic Bible quilts that can be found in the Smithsonian and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.(http://www.mfa.org/collections/object/pictorial-quilt-116166)

September 10, 2011 – Postcard Land

tofuart:

I have pretty well established that I love using vintage postcards in my art.  They figure prominently in quite a few pieces for the 2011 Project.  One of my favorite things about them is all the old, stylized fonts that were used in the postcards and on the covers of the postcard booklets.  Two years ago I worked on a project making my own, handmade postcard booklets.  One of the best parts was the excuse to recreate the stylized lettering in the style of the old postcards from 70 or so years ago.

HH:  I was always fascinated with postcards coming from strange corners of the world to my little post box.  I later collected them for sometime, but now they are in a trunk that I will perhaps use for collages one day.  Or just a trip down memory lane, perhaps.  


2010. T-Post asked me to create a mixed media piece to represent the news story about a recently signed bill in Arizona, USA, that can demand immigrants to show identity documents legitimizing their presence within the United States. The supporters of the bill claim that they will not target people based on their skin colour, but rather on their clothing. (NIKKI FARQUHARSON)

SAMARI SKATEBOARDERS - these are awesome illustrations  :)
Inspired by a recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, San Francisco based painter Ferris Plock decided to cleverly mashup samurais and skateboarders in his new series, Rest for the Wicked. This new collection embodies the artist’s trademark character-based works along with a Ukiyo-e inspired sensibility. Ukiyo-e, or Japanese woodblock prints, is one of the most universally known of all Japanese arts. Produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries, ukiyo-e translates to “floating world” in English and often featured images of a world of transient pleasures and freedom, like in theatre, pleasure quarters and travel.Fock used a variety of media such as acrylic, gouache, gold leaf, and spray paint on wood panel to create his art. You can listen to him describe this new set, here, or see the paintings now till September 4, 2010 in San Francisco at The Shooting Gallery.

2011 Project: August 29, 2011 – Ishi

tofuart:

Not far from his homeland, in the shadow of Mt. Lassen, one hundred years ago today, a Yana man walked out of the mountains near Oroville, California. He was a Native American and the last of his people —The Yana. He actually did not have a name, he was alone and he never had a naming…

HH:  Excellent.
