other worldly

The “Small Worlds” exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art is running from November 2011 to March 2012.  They are featuring one of my favorite artists, Gregory Euclide:

Euclide’s installation is created from recycled and found materials. It serves as the entryway to the Small Worlds exhibit, and is built on the Canaday Gallery Bridge in the museum. More of Euclide’s work:  www.gregoryeuclide.com

Nix describes herself as a “non-traditional photographer”, as she constructs her subjects to photograph rather than going out to find her subjects.
Her photos are not digitally manipulated.  The mood, rich color, and minute detail are painstakingly created and lit to perfection. See more of Nix’s work: www.lorinix.net

Japanese artist Tabaimo is an award-winning contemporary artist, working with moving images.  She creates surreal, animated installations with a satiric view of the modern Japanese life.

Tabaimo’s hand drawn illustrations are beautiful, and it is fascinating to watch them come to life in the video installations.  See more links on You Tube HERE.
