» Sacha Goldberger: Super Flemish

What if Superman was born in the sixteenth century?
And what if the Hulk was a Duke?
How might Van Eyck have portrayed Snow White?

Sacha’s discovery of these characters, which goes back to childhood, gave birth to a desire to re-appropriate them, to take them back to a time forming the cornerstone of modern western art. Sacha wants to confront these icons of American culture with contemporary painters of the Flemish school. The collection demonstrates the use of 17 century techniques counterpointing light and shadow to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times. It also invites you to celebrate the heroes of your childhood.”
These are stunning!
Hat tip to Bonnie P.

Have a great Friday night everybody.

See you next week!

» Danielle and Janis

“I’ve always wondered if my mom and I would have been friends had we grown up together.
Would we be in the same classes? Would we have the same sense of humor? Would people tell us we were inseparable? After seeing myself in her childhood photos, I’m pretty sure we would have been great friends.”
A great photo series by Danielle Delph in which she photographs herself into photos of her mom at the same age. Touching.

» Travis Purrington: 2014 USD Proposal

It was printed for the Diplom Exhibition in 2011 in Basel.”

Sitting atop the second tallest building on Europe’s Mediterranean coastline, the 35,500 sq. ft. five-storey penthouse could become one of the world’s most expensive properties per square meter when it comes onto the market in 2014.”
Yikes!
