What A Little Creativity Can Lead To……

Standard

So, it’s no  grande secreto that one of my favorite creative people of all time is the enigmatic Zoltron.  The other artist that I love the most (in the total, personal sense of the word) is a certain Hollis Rhodes. You may not have heard of him, YET, but that’s about to change.  This is what happens when the two artists collide:

This, eventually, becomes

THIS.

When Zoltron first posted the tale I didn’t realize that the amazing art I was looking at was updated (if you will) by my very own BIL.  It soon became a bit of a local sensation, with several posts about it in Bay Area blogs (including Fecal Face).

Then, more bait was placed.  “Sue Nami” was born.

This version really demands a closer view, click on the image to see it close-up, the only way to really understand how much detail is really within the work.  It has so much going on, I could easily look at it for a half-hour and still not completely understand its full complexity.

The happy result of my two friends and their combined talent is going to be a show next month at Bi-Rite‘s 18 Reasons. Don’t miss it!

…and this is what I got!   How cool is that?  Aren’t the details in Brian Dettmer’s work amazing? He works by altering pre-existing materials to make entirely new objects.  The results are fascinating.  Dettmer uses the the same medical instruments as a surgeon to obtain his precision results.More of his art can be found here.

I Know What Ladies Want

They want to see Torsten Kretchzmar, German electro-pop sensation, performing his latest from his 2007 Men of Sport release. Friday March 21, Torsten will be performing live at the de Young Museum as a part of Friday Nights at the de Young “Art for All” : College Students Pay Tribute to Gilbert and George.You can be assured he will provide a visual and sonic delight that will leave you asking, who is this and where has he been hiding? I’ll be there, in plain sight.
For a preview of Torsten’s latest, check out his link at the right, where his underground hits Entschlossenheit and Dunkelheit, released in 2005 may also be found.

UPDATE!

Here is a preview of Entschlossenheit. You may not know me, but I have had a career as a video vixen! If you look very, very carefully at the end of this video, you may see my hands. Hot stuff, I know.
