ART: Organic Angles

Rocky Mountains Drawing No. 2, Jaime Derringer, 2007.

Ochi, Michelle Armas

Shark? (I don't know the title of this piece, I saw it when The Selby went to his flat. What am I, british now? House, when the Selby went to his house.), Xavier Veilhan

Mini Print Set, Olivia Jeffries

For the past year I've been seeing a lot of this multi-sided, rhombus-rific geometric pattern and I love it. It's structured but still kind of free-flowing and random. I've seen TONS more than just the works I've posted here, but these are some I could track down. Enjoy!

I love this.

It's just so beautiful and kind of sad, not just because the tree had to be cut down to make it. Like a finger print, it's the most unique thing about the owner, yet treated so formally and frankly, completely exposed--I don't know.

Apart from my bullshit quasi-critique, the organic lines, shape, and simple process involved in making the print are really great, too. Nature really is the greatest artist (I know, so cheesy, but frickin' true, man!).

ANYwayzz, I just want to make sure I remember this if I ever happen across a freshly cut tree with ink, a roller and paper handy. :)
