my viewing “wish list”

August 20, 2010

Happy Friday! Here is my BIweekly “wish list.” Yep, you read that right! I am going to be sharing MVWL twice a week now! Mondays and Fridays. Nice way to start and end the work week. Enjoy!

1. Matthew Northridge: Oh, man! Major lust. I was first introduced to Northridge’s work yesterday when he was featured on BOOOOOOOM! I had to fight the urge to jump up from my desk and run out the door. I NEED to see his work in person! His installation work is really interesting. Right now I think this one is my favorite.

With my current work I cannot help but be attracted to his Aerial Studies series. On his website he states, “In this ongoing series, architecture is carefully removed from an aerial photograph and relocated within the confines of a blank page. Presented as a white void, the landscape becomes an invisible yet defining element.” [src] These pieces are so small with even smaller details, viewing them on a computer screen cannot possibly give them justice. I really REALLY want to be able to view these collages in person.

2. Abigail Reynolds: OK, so it is pretty apparent by MVWL so far that I have a soft-spot for cut paper. When I saw Reynolds’s work featured on The Jealous Curator today I instantly went to view her current and upcoming shows. Sadly I do not have the time to visit the west coast anytime soon (or the UK for that matter.) Be sure to check out her website to view more of her work.

3. Mia Pearlman: Yep, another cut paper piece! I have followed Pearlman’s work for a couple of years now and it never ceases to amaze me the amount of detail in these Cut Paper Installations. I can tell you right now that I do not possess the level of patience that she must have to complete these. Absolutely stunning. Check out her website to view more of her work.

Well, that’s it for today! Have you seen any of the work above in person? What did you think?

my viewing “wish list” is a biweekly post where I share artists’ work I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see in person! Staring at a computer screen is just not the same.

NOTE: All of the images above are from the sourced websites. If any artists or galleries would like the images removed please do not hesitate to contact me directly (megan@megancharland.com) and I will remove them ASAP. Images are for educational use. Thank you.
