Rome, Italy based Micaela Lattanzio has created a unique artistic identity by exploring the idea of fragmentation and reconstruction, implemented within her photographs. In her series called “Frammentazioni”, she takes photographs, predominately portraits, and then gives them a completely new personality by cutting them up into abstract pieces. She then pins the fragments together onto a new canvas, playing with light and depth, to create original works of art.

She uses different materials to realize her works as paper, aluminium, PVC and they born from a detailed manual photo or painting cropping made by her plots, which she breaks down into small pieces of different form, getting an intricate mosaic through which she deconstructs the image that later reassembles, giving to faces, bodies and natural elements a new logical visual that follows an incredible creative patterns.

Angela Deane explores the beautiful, painful, and ultimately puzzling, human condition of having memories. Deane covers people on found photographs with paint, subtracting the specific identity of each person and transforming them into anonymous entities for the viewer to project upon. The new portraits liken themselves to the familiar visual of a ghost, cloaked in opaque material and masked behind the guise of the fabric.

Seoul, Korea based Hyungkoo Lee‘s series of photographs and wearable sculpture helmets known as The Objectuals are fitted with interchangeable concave and convex lenses which shrink, expand and distort his features while allowing him to perform any normal daily activities. The lenses can produce disturbingly exaggerated facial expressions, faces that are cartoonishly demure or aggressive.

London based Maurizio Anzeri makes his portraits by sewing directly into found vintage photographs. His embroidered patterns garnish the figures like elaborate costumes, but also suggest a psychological aura, as if revealing the person’s thoughts or feelings. The antique appearance of the photographs is often at odds with the sharp lines and silky shimmer of the threads. The combined media gives the effect of a dimension where history and future converge. Anzeri’s delicately stitched veil recasts the figure with an uncomfortable modesty, overlaying a past generation’s cross-cultural anxieties with an allusion to our own.

Mana Morimoto creates out-of-this-world works of fiber art by embroidering colorful thread onto black and white photographs. Morimoto’s photograph embroidery exists in the “in between,” as her use of colorful fibers transforms vintage and often serious images into vibrant works of art.

According to the artist, she chose embroidery because she always found stitching and weaving therapeutic. She coupled this love for embroidery with a fondness for geometric shapes, resulting in an ever-growing collection of photographs hand-stitched with laser-like elements shooting out of people’s eyes and unnatural geometric objects integrated into various scenes.

Los Angeles based Joshua Dildine is a painter that repurposes family photographs, using them as armatures for abstract painting. Three different steps in his work are construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction. Construction involves selection of the photography and setting up the emotional context that the image possess. Deconstruction is actually defacement of photography so he could create something new. During this step that last only a few moments Dildine works very quickly to harmonize the photo with paint. Last stage is the reconstruction of the context. Using acrylic, spray paint, oil and UV coated ink, he defaces the image into works of art.

FIERCE SURREALNESS BY PACO POMET

There’s something so iconic yet surreal about the works of Granada, Spain based Paco Pomet. With a fierce sense of humor, his oil paintings take on an unexpected twist in the narrative. He often borrows sepia-toned photographs that look like vintage images or historical documents, and then adds his own interesting take on each scene. With an overall monochrome effect, including bursts of unexpected, bright colors, his art is original, quirky and always created with an underlying wit.

DAEMONIEN BY STEFAN GUNNESCH

Stefan Gunnesch studied Communication Design and works mainly as a book designer and illustrator. Daemonien is a book project gathering overpainted photographs, collages and acrylic on paper. The pictures show explorations of the body and the ego.

The striking photographs reveal posturing bodies and portraits, but were alienated by radical interventions that made the motifs fragmented and partly illegible. The process of overpainting becomes an egotistical appropriation of the images and questions a new (visual) identity.

Erin M. Riley is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work focuses on women and women’s issues primarily in hand-woven tapestries. Riley received her BFA in 2007 from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA, in 2009.

Erin has been weaving imagery culled from the Internet, and more recently photographs she has taken of herself using hand-dyed wool on a floor loom. Based on social media images as well as autobiographical experiences that focus on objects and fleeting moments, Riley’s work offers visual dialogue that aims to reevaluate and reconsider the values of contemporary women, their social spheres and stratification, as well as their attitudes towards sex and sexuality through keyhole-like glimpses into their lives.

She can finish a medium sized piece in 80-90 hours. When she is working on an upcoming exhibition, she spends about 12-14 hours a day weaving and can finish one piece in a week. Her most recent huge piece took her a month.

Anton Corbijn exhitbits “R.E.M. Seen between 1990-2010″ @ Albertinum, Dresden, Germany

Work with REM anton corbijn 29799293 2219 2192 605x597 Anton Corbijn exhitbits R.E.M. Seen between 1990 2010 @ Albertinum, Dresden, Germany rem Photography germany dresden Anton Corbijn

If you have ever been to Dresden, Germany, one of the things that stands out is the fact that Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five, and all of its descriptions of fire-bombing disaster, still sort of stands today. Granted, we took a train through in 2004, so surely it has improved, and it has, but remnants of World War II still exist for sure. In a completely different bit of news, famed rock photographer, Anton Corbijn, just opened a new exhibition, “R.E.M. Seen between 1990-2010″ at the Albertinum Museum in Dresden, featuring over 40 large format photos of Corbijn’s documentation of the famed Augusta, Georgia band.

Here is the sweet and lowdown:

Anton Corbijn’s distinctive style is characterised by a clear and realistic perspective. He does not take his photographs in a studio, nor does he use artificial light or a tripod. As a result, remote celebrities suddenly appear close, vulnerable and even sentimental. Using his camera in this way, Anton Corbijn documented the most important phases in the career of the band R.E.M. Rather than being staged images, the approximately 40 photographs in this exhibition authentically show the personalities of the band members and even provide intimate glimpses into their lives.

When R.E.M. disbanded in September 2011 after 31 successful years in the music business, their last album “Collapse into Now” was just a few months old. It was an unusual album, not only due to its musical diversity but above all because singer Michael Stipe took a completely different tack in it. In parallel with the album, he initiated a film project, curating it himself and engaging successful directors and actors to support him. Twelve short films to twelve songs – that was the idea behind this unusual collaboration between the music star Stipe and renowned figures from Hollywood. The film makers included, for example, the Oscar-nominated US actor James Franco, the French artist Sophie Calle, the 85-year old documentary film maker Albert Maysles and the British director, photographer and concept artist Sam Taylor-Wood.

For a period of three months, these short films are being shown in the Albertinum – for the first time alongside photographs by Anton Corbijn.
