NYC Legend: Lee Quinones

This short video of Lee takes you inside his Brooklyn studio, where he shows and discusses one of the most powerful series of paintings I’ve seen in person to date. It gives me great joy to share this video as he discusses the meaning behind one of my personal favorite paintings of all time as well as another series of paintings I love featuring records being stolen. Enjoy.

Book of the week: Cutting Edges

Cutting Edges documents the new heyday of collage in current art and visual culture. Today’s artists, illustrators, and designers are increasingly drawn to this artistic technique by the challenges of seamlessly melding traditional craftsmanship with skilled computer montage. They are not only composing a wide variety of visual elements, but are also deliberately omitting, deleting, and destroying them. This book is an inspiring collection of these unique examples of contemporary collage.
