crossconnectmag: Hung-Hsin Lin: Lost Inside Hung-Hsin Lin... crss

crossconnectmag : Hung-Hsin Lin: Lost Inside Hung-Hsin Lin (林宏信) was born in Yunlin, Taiwan in 1975. He received his MFA from the National Taiwan University of Arts. Before being a full-time artist, Lin had been working as an advertising designer for almost 15 years. He borrows the character “flâneur” from Walter Benjamin’s (1892-1940) works as the main subject in his works. With the face painted with white powder & the costume corresponding to the environment. The “flâneur” in Lin’s paintings is a complicated self-reflection of the artist. Through these portraits in various sizes, Lin attempts to challenge viewers’ visual experience & the way they see a painting.   Facebook | Twitter via: Liang Gallery (Taipei, Taiwan) More art from around the world on Cross Connect’s Facebook .

a brief departure from the typical posts here… while i try not to include my personal work in subtilitas, readers may have noticed content has been a little sparse here lately due to a few large projects wrapping up. one of which is a book i’ve been involved with through the cactus store , which was just released this week. xerophile  is a compendium of desert plant and habitat photography three years in the making. a selection of over five hundred photographs of arguably the rarest and most bizarre plants on earth, photographed in their remote natural habitats over the past 80 years by a global cadre of obsessed cactus aficionados made up of both the amateur and the professional—from phd. botanist to banker, art teacher to cancer researcher. aside from the field photography, we’ve also included several interviews with the explorer’s themselves, who’s stories only add to the mystique of their images.  posts should begin to be more regular next week. thanks as al

Iverson builds worlds where dramatically angled, brightly colored geometric shapes are caught in webs of competing perspective lines and grids, superimposed over otherwise tranquil scenery.
