Staying relevant on the go.
1. Dutch paintings-meets-fashion? Another Magazine has a look at the similarities between the headpieces in 15th and 16th century Dutch portraiture and the headgear at the Rick Owens and Maison Martin Margiela FW14 runway shows.
2. Glitch-inspired painting. Alejandro Bombín’s acrylic paintings of faded, vintage images may look like digitized glitch art, but his works are actually meticulously painted to look like the digital error.
Bombín’s paintings are a commentary on our desire to hold onto the past via technology and the failings we can experience with those digital devices.
5. #FBF! “Ellen Gallagher: Don’t Axe Me” was on display at the New Museum back in 2013. Watch artist Ellen Gallagher discuss how she incorporates paper cutouts into her paintings.
