Jim Goldberg

Rich and Poor

1. USA. San Francisco, California. 1977. “My life is personal, but I will tell you one thing I’m too fat.”

2. USA. San Francisco. 1977. “Now I see a way out to a decent future. I’m tired of this shit, drugs and pimping and all that stuff. Maybe now I have the courage to do something - anything. I don’t know, we will see. Jim, Thanks. (P.S) I love you.”

3. USA. San Francisco. 1978. “To me life seems so messed up but little by little I am trying to over come that. Because it is hard being a woman and to accept me as I am.”

4. USA. San Francisco. 1977. “I love the picture. I am a homosexual. May be if I send one of the pictures you gave me, Jim, to my nephew he will understand how hard his uncle is struggling.”

5. USA. San Francisco. 1984. “It’s kind of stinky living in this hotel. I don’t have nothing only $10. I keep waiting for someone to come in my door and give me money but nobody ever will.”

6. USA. San Francisco, California. 1983. “My face shows the intensity of a pained woman. I’ve been mugged and beaten. I didn’t ask for this mess. This makes me look like a bum - I am not. I am fantastic Dorothy, a popular personality. The nicest person in the hotel.”

7. USA. San Francisco, California. 1979. “My name is Judy and I am 11 years old. 

I like the picture. My mom looks like she angry. I don’t like the way I look because I look pregnat. My favorite thing is to play with boys.”

8. USA. San Francisco. 1983. “We look like ordinary people! We have a terrible life.”

Steven Tabbutt : Surreal, Chaotic, and Colorful Art

Steven Tabbutt’s rich paintings of refined hairy ladies, robot beasts, and spotted monsters are absolutely amazing. I can get lost in his works for hours and get transplanted to a mysterious world where nothing is what it seems.

 Eddy Stevens's Paintings Hint at Supernatural

OccurrencesBelgian-born, French-based artist Eddy Stevens’s rich paintings convey the presence of otherworldly forces. In one piece, small rocks float inside a room as if magnetized, ready to launch an attack at a vulnerable, nude character cowering in the corner. In other pieces, human bodies improbably float, hovering in cannonball positions that seem too static to abide by the normal laws of gravity. There appears to be an energetic forcefield in this strange world set in the wooded European countryside. His disrobed characters (which Stevens models after his wife) suggest a return to a more primal way of being, which Stevens depicts with technical mastery.

Lauren Satlowskis Subversive and Saccharine Figures

For some time now, I’ve pined over the works of Lau­ren Sat­lowski. Her tech­nique, the odd sub­ject mat­ter, and the sac­cha­rine col­ors appeal to me in a very vis­ceral way. I hes­i­tate to label her work as a jux­ta­po­si­tion of ugly/beautiful, but that’s the best way I can describe it. Using jewel-toned hues and photo-realistic ren­der­ing, her char­ac­ters some­time remind me of a sur­real ver­sion of Pre­cious Moments fig­urines. They def­i­nitely aren’t as sweet, and are instead subversive.
