#INTERNET Ah, we're back! Like we said, we were just "chilling out" for like 3 years. Feels good to have the team back writing. Still us three: Chuck, Benjamin, and Virgil. Got new interviews coming up, and hopefully we'll be posting on a regular basis, who knows. We also interviewed each other, check: CHUCK, BENJAMIN, VIRGIL...

Josh Keyes!!

Chuck sent me a link to Josh Keyes’ work yesterday…and I think I’ve honestly had a browser window open with it since than, ha. Like opening it, scrolling thru it…thinking how it would work in my home, etc. Really just ‘floored’ by his stuff. I think I made mention of it in a pervious art post – but how I dig stuff that is looming or almost scary maybe. His work hits that dead-on. Has a great starkness to it – how it floats on the middle of the canvas as well as the colors…they are so perfectly flat. In fact, in an interview he mentions that he studies a lot of 1950’s - 1960’s school books and how their diagram art looked, etc. You can certainly see that influence in the ‘side view’ or cut-out pieces where the root structures, dirt, etc show…really amazing use of that. But beyond all that – the actual environments he creates, with the blending of water and three-dimensional stuff is so wild, seriously, I love it. The half in water, half out of water deer (shown) and how the water distorts the color, reflects on its fur…then how it refracts the actual image of the deer. Man…ha, I could go on for a while with this! Check his work, so inspiring.
