    Lighthouse by Guy Yanai

    Just wanted to add a pop of color (and summer) to this dreary and wintery day.

    THE DAILY STORY

    Brooklyn-based painter Chuck Webster recently sat down with Artwrit to discuss his work exhibited at ZieherSmith gallery in New York, a show simply titled Paintings. Webster’s new series of large paintings takes a personal risk, as the pieces step away from his previous work, which was similar in aesthetic but on a much smaller scale. Through shapes and color, Webster expands, stretches and explores the certain type of confidence that could be found on an effortless napkin drawing. His images hint at what might be a series of shipwrecks, and the bright, confident marks leave the viewer slightly disturbed, yet joyful. [Read the interview with Chuck Webster on The Huffington Post]

  8. THE DAILY STORY:

    When the National Gallery gave three very different visual artists – Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger – two years to interpret three paintings by Titian, the results were startling. Now the Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 exhibition, running from 11 July - 23 September at London’s National Gallery, brings these remarkable artworks together with the masterpieces that inspired them.

  10. Jeremy Blake + Beck

    Another great artist and musician collaboration. Blake’s color soaked, dreamy digital art fits perfectly with Beck’s stripped emotion album Sea Changes.

  11. (this) Chris Martin, like the other (think “Coldplay”), creates music records, though he hasn’t won fame by claiming Grammy’s or Platinum status.  Rather, he composes a piece inspired by Miles Davis’ live performance at the Fillmore East in 1970.  From June 17-20th, Davis and his band recorded four straight days, one track per. “Wednesday Miles” was done the first night, a Wednesday of course, and was produced as a nearly 25-minute performance.  Martin’s screenprint collage includes digitally scanned images of the performance’s vinyl records into a mixed media masterpiece. -JOSH
