Artist Lisa Nilsson constructed various cross sections of the human body using only pieces of rolled paper.
Jazmina Cininas - Waving To Meret
The Girlie Werewolf Project: Between the Wolf and the Dog (2000-2004)
"The wolf’s history as a construct of the popular psyche more closely parallels the way women have been portrayed throughout the ages. Its classic identities as either the selfless nurturing mother (as in the Jungle Book and Romulus and Remus stories), the diabolical werewolf, and as the ravening man-eater respectively mirror the chaste wife, heretic witch and femme fatale archetypes traditionally reserved for representations of women.” - Cininas

here’s his Tumblr
Kenneth Price - multiple drawings (2000’s)
I was fortunate to be able to check out his exhibit at the LACMA in 2012, which focused more on his richly colored ceramic sculptures, but it was his drawings that tickled my fancy the most. Here’s an Art In America Magazine article about a current exhibit of his drawings at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY. Also, a retrospective of his sculptures is currently being shown at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in NYC.
Tomas Gabzdil Libertiny
Unbearable Lightness, 2010
"During design Miami/ Basel 2010, Dutch artist Tomas Gabzdil designed a glass and aluminum cabinet with a figure of martyred Christ, covered by a wax honeycomb a structure. Over the course of the fair, 40,000 worker bees were released into the cabinet. They first completed the honeycomb skin over the figure filling each cell with honey, then they removed the honey to return it to the beehive, cleaning the martyred Christ back to the wax cells."
Replicants: A triptych of 3D prints, 2013
"Each print was created using a different app / software. I interfered with the software as little as possible, comparing the digital attempts at replicating reality. The result is then 3D printed, bringing the digital simulacrums into the physical world."
Masks of the Bryone Society
“Bryone, the beautiful and rich daughter of the king, was the most
beloved princess of all times. She led a peaceful life within the castle walls. However, there was only one thing that perturbed her. She had been forbidden to ever enter the great forest. As the years passed, the prohibition became more and more unbearable. One night, Bryone escaped from the castle in order to solve the mystery. She walked for many nights and days. One morning, she reached the extraordinary “Magnificent World”. When she returned to the castle, Bryone could not hide her amazement from the King. Infuriated by her disobedience, he had every living being in the great forest beheaded, slit his daughter’s throat, and died so as to guard the secret.
As a result, the Queen went mad, and commanded the royal court to recreate the “Magnificent World” every year, on the night of Saint Baradatus, although she knew nothing about it.”
"Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work.”
Christine Wong Yap
Positive Sign #6 (Nine Elements of Flow), 2011.
"Christine Wong Yap is an interdisciplinary artist working in installations, sculptures, multiples, and works on paper to explore optimism and pessimism. Her work examines the paradox that mundane materials or situations can give rise to irrational expectations, emotions, and experiences. Major touchstones are language, light and dark, and psychology."
