Check out the new work by Vancouver-based artist Rebecca Chaperon. Chaperon’s paintings act as a means of storytelling, as landscapes meet flat geometry and emotive undercurrents. Born in England in 1978, Rebecca attended Emily Carr University in Vancouver, BC where she studied fine arts until graduation in 2002. Her work is exhibited/collected internationally and recently shown (2014) in Vancouver,  LA and San Francisco.

Her process often begins with the idea of place. We see paintings of dark landscapes that seem to stretch infinitely, a doomed place invented by the artist as a theatrical stage where various protagonists bravely live out mysterious vignettes. The setting becomes a representation of the internal landscape of the artist, or more specifically the small brilliant garden of creativity that exists within. On the visual journey through Chaperon’s work we are immersed in surreal versions of the world, places that waver just outside of our perception.

SURREALISTIC BESTIARY BY HELL’O MONSTERS

Hell’O Monsters, a collective of Belgian artists, started by using exterior walls as their canvas, but it was within the walls of their studio that the uniform and homogeneous identity of the duo was forged.

Quite rapidly the strict aesthetic codes that they established based on mastering the line and graphic leitmotiv, were applied to designs, paintings, sculptures and installations. The creative approach is characterized by an extremely conventional freedom paired with meticulous execution. Their universe is inhabited by a surrealistic bestiary of mysterious animals, hybrid characters, architecture and badass geometry.

Geometry Daily

3 a bit more than full a new minimal Geometry Daily geometry daily

Who would have thought we would enjoy a blog called Geometry Daily? Come to think of it, our last heyday in math was Geometry, where at a little high school in the East Bay, Raymond and Nisan shared a class with Mr Richardson, a man with such a big belly that as he wrote equations on the board, half the numbers would be rubbed of by his gut. Loved him.

First and Final Friday: The Clientele “Strange Geometry”

The clientele strange geometry First and Final Friday: The Clientele Strange Geometry the clientele strange geometry first and final friday

One of the most underrated bands of the past decade, The Clientele continually put out solid records with plenty of reverb and 60s influence, and 2005′s Strange Geometry was the album that began their foray into more pop songs. The British band opens with “Since K Got Over Me,” and closes with the great “Six of Spades.” Magical stuff. Fall has begun.

First and Final Fridays: The Clientele “God Save the Clientele”

10206 god save the clientele First and Final Fridays: The Clientele God Save the Clientele the clientele god save the clientele first and final fridays

Of all the great Clientele albums, of which their entire canon is solid, the light Autumn buzz over 2007′s God Save the Clientele remains their finest. The London band had pushed their sound the slightest with 2005 Strange Geometry, and the opening track on God Save, “Here Comes the Phantom” is indeed our favorite. And a nice simple ending in “Dreams of Leaving” rounds it out perfectly.
