Street art and tattoos by Dennis Smyth

Sara Lynch Reader Find

By Sara Lynch in New Art on Monday 6 August 2012

I have known Dennis Smyth for many years and he has always been an outstanding artist. He currently works as a tattoo artist in Philly, but does all kinds of other interesting things. I’m a huge fan of the coffee tables he does, often in collaboration with other artists. Being able to see them would be great motivation to keep one’s coffee table clean. The most recent time I ran into him, he was under a rigged up tarp system spray painting away in the drizzling rain. It’s always great to see some serious dedication.

Clay art by Sara Lynch

By Sara Lynch in New Art on Saturday 4 August 2012

I’ve been working with clay for about nine years now, but I’ve been making art for as long as I can remember. Like everyone else, I’ve been eating for just as long.

Living and working in the extreme north of New York State has given me a direct experience of where food comes from and where it goes. A bunny eats carrots, decomposers eat dead bunnies, and humans eat cupcakes. This is the order of things.

New art by Krissi Sandvik

Sara Lynch Reader Find

By Sara Lynch in New Art on Wednesday 1 August 2012

I came across Krissi Sandvik randomly on Google plus when it first came out. Sandvik creates carefully painted artwork that ranges from elegant to silly and everything in between. I particularly like that she uses the images she creates to make pendants. Not everyone can afford a full-sized painting, so her necklaces are a fun and affordable way to own an original piece of her art.

Brilliant ceramic art by Nathan Prouty

By Sara Lynch in New Art on Wednesday 1 August 2012

Wow! I see so many different textures, colors, shapes, and sizes in Nathan Prouty’s work. Not normal ones, either. They all have a very strange and unearthly quality to them. I wouldn’t have been able to tell just by looking, but Prouty is a ceramic artist: the kind that makes you wonder how in the world he was able to do any of it. I have no idea, although I suspect that dental tools were involved.

Colourful character art by KitCameo

Sara Lynch Reader Find

By Sara Lynch in New Art on Wednesday 1 August 2012

I’m not sure what it is, but the multi-faceted KitCameo kills me. There’s something about the way she combines familiar things in an outlandish manner … with her clear style, it’s just right.
