Paintbending :: Art Without Boundaries

Claire | October 29th, 2014

When you look at one of Fabian’s  paintings, its like staring inside the human mind.  Abstract forms come together with splashes of colour and visible figures to create a kaleidoscopic dreamlike effect; a somewhat altered state of reality.  Using his bare hands instead of a paintbrush, Fabian uses many unusual techniques, including one where he spatters paint onto a canvas, lets it sit for a while and then tilts the canvas back and forth to create a weave like effects of the color swirling together.  He enjoys mixing mediums, and  several of his over 200 recent works contain a mixture of found materials and professional paint with other types of residues like  glue, wax, crayons, and even cut-up pieces from magazines.

The five words every writer or artist dreads to hear are put to manic fever dream in Aaron Maurer and Lucas Kavner’s hilarious, terrifying video “What Are You Working On?”. Over its course, an aloof artist played by Dylan Dawson innocently strolls the streets of Brooklyn, hoping to enjoy his iced coffee and sunny day. Instead he is faced with his own crippling sense of failure.

The Kilroys caused a stir when they released their first annual list of industry-vetted new plays by women. Sick of whining about the lack of gender inclusion in the American theater and in film, TV, and media more generally, this group of 13 playwrights and producers got together to do something about it. The List was their first project, and will hopefully lead to more equality among the identities of voices on our stages.

It saved the best for last. Lacey Schwartz, the film’s director, has created a brave, honest, and at times dark film about the harsh reality of a family’s silence and secrecy, revealing the connection to her own racial identity and religion.

I’ve never liked my boobs, I’ve always thought they were too small, awkwardly shaped, and out of proportion to my nipples. But what if what I had, and little as it might be, was taken from me? How would I feel? Would I still be the same woman? Read More

As a single gal, sometimes you wake up in one of those moods. You know the kind…the, “I’m going to die alone” moods. Today just happened to be one of those days for me, and despite my usual chipper attitude towards being single (I hate sharing a bed) today I was not particularly chipper about it. That’s life, and with the help of some good friends both male and female, I was over it about 30 minutes after I woke up. Read More

David Neevel is an inventor. He works at Wieden + Kennedy, “a full-service, creatively driven advertising agency based in Portland, Oregon”. He’s also cool looking. And funny looking, but not in a haha way, in the typical way that most of the US thinks is weird and it’s completely ubiquitous in Portland way. I like this dude. He’s obviously smart, funny, and clever. He came on my radar a few years back when he invented a Oreo Separator Read More

It’s hard to tell which populates the WGA Award Winning web series, Jack in a Box more – neuroses or cupcakes. Starring and created by the charmingly bumbling Michael Cyril Creighton, the series centers on Jack, a disgruntled New York theater box office employee coming to terms with the realities of his acting career and frustrations of everyday life.
