Scott Wade uses a wonderful combination of cars and dirt to create his work. He uses the rear window of cars as his canvas and re-creates everything from famous paintings to famous football stars. He creates each elaborate piece using an assortment of brushes and his hands. One painting can take anywhere from forty mintues to four hours. Each work is wiped clean by rain or the passing of time, allowing him to start anew.
Guy Laramee creates these amazing mountain carvings from old books.
"The erosion of cultures – and of “culture” as a whole - is the theme that runs through the last 25 years of my artistic practice. Cultures emerge, become obsolete, and are replaced by new ones. With the vanishing of cultures, some people are displaced and destroyed. We are currently told that the paper book is bound to die. The library, as a place, is finished. One might ask so what? Do we really believe that “new technologies” will change anything concerning our existential dilemma, our human condition? And even if we could change the content of all the books on earth, would this change anything in relation to the domination of analytical knowledge over intuitive knowledge? What is it in ourselves that insists on grabbing, on casting the flow of experience into concepts?"
