Jason A. Maas creates drawings that find the core expression in human body language by carefully removing contextual information and leaving a structure that both illuminates and challenges the content of an image. Negative spaces provide focus, silence, and an openness to allow the viewer to finish the drawing. The new body of work confronts the current understanding of how we view journalistic images of social unrest that proliferate the media, from professional photographs to low resolution cell phone photos.

ANSELM SKOGSTAD- AMERICAN PORTRAIT











Anselm Skogstad (b. 1983, in Starnberg, Germany) is a German-American artist living and working in New York, NY and Munich, Germany.

Between 2002 when Skogstad first arrived in New York City and 2006, he “customized’ his art education. He began experiencing the New York art scene whilst working for renowned artists Christopher Makos and David LaChapelle as well as Magnum Photos. Further more, Skogstad began attending a selection of courses at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts in New York. Skogstad worked on an extensive body of work entitled American Portrait whilst being based in San Francisco, CA for several months where he also attended the San Francisco Art Institute.

Throughout his work, Skogstad creates visuals, which often implement multiple layers using mixed media. He works in series allowing each piece to be part of a whole, not being titled individually. Skogstad also insists on setting technical boundaries in which he works for each specific series.

During recent years, Skogstad has had numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States. He is represented by galleries and curators, amongst those are Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, President, Villa Grisebach Auctions, Inc., New York, NY and David Guiraud, Paris, France. Upcoming future exhibitions of Skogstad’s work, scheduled through 2011, will be on display in Paris, Munich, Berlin, Boston and New York.

GODZILLA MAKES TIME FOR HIS FANS!





Photographs taken of Godzilla with friends, family, and fans on one of the first original sets of the movie series, not to mention his famous victory dance. I love how these images bring such a wonderful sense of humor to a monster that started out being depicted as an evil, destructive beast. Oh how he’s captured our hearts.
