“Showing a comprehensive body of work that ranges from sculptures, installations, drawings to wide scope of different canvas pieces, the Barcelona-based artist proved all the high expectations about this show to be completely grounded. His unique blend of knowledge, witty creativity and massive artistic talent, resulted in strong and large body of work that speaks volumes. Tackling some of the most sensitive subjects, the pieces comment on environmental, political, economical or social issues that everyone can recognize. Using unexpected twists, visual illusions or bizarre paradoxes, Pejac creates images that attract attention and get the mind working. Pieces often include familiar imagery, whether from every day life or art history, and twist them around in order to pass on a strong message. Subtle yet powerful, the entire body of work consisting of over 30 pieces surely deserves the attention it is getting. Cleverly installed in a coherent showing, the entire exhibition has almost a narrative feel from the effective ball pit installation at the beginning until the “last” contemporary take on the iconic photograph of Buddhist monk self-immolation. —Sasha Bogojev” Via Juxtapoz

Deborah Bay – What Happens When Bullets Hit Things

They may look like constellations in space, but these pictures actually show something closer to home: the after-effects of gunfire. Unlike the horror of the Sandy Hook and Aurora shootings, though, the images have a certain beauty about them–the randomness of intense energy barreling through plexiglass.

Photographer Deborah Bay calls the series “The Big Bang.” She says she became interested in guns after seeing a sales display of bullet-proof glass with several heavy rounds in it. “I was particularly interested in how the transparent plastic captured the fragmentation of the bullets and provided a dramatic way of seeing ballistic power outside the usual frame of reference,” she says.

She describes the “psychological tension” between the “jewel-like beauty” of the images, and the “inherent destructiveness of the fragmented projectiles in the plexiglas.”

Bay doesn’t want to detail her own gun control views: “I think it’s up to the viewer to interpret the work,” she says. But the photographer does ask us to “realize the impact any of these bullets would have on muscle and bone,” and to appreciate how pervasive guns have become in America. In her home state of Texas, she notes there are an estimated 51 million guns–two for every man, woman and child.

The bullets pictured here were fired peacefully–at a Public Safety Institute at Houston Community College–by law enforcement professionals. Bay took the actual photos back at her studio later.

Chicago-based jeweler Justin Gershenson-Gates recently grew a bit tired of creating jewelry after a show this summer and while experimenting with some watch part anatomy he decided to try his hand at spider and insect legs. One thing led to another a new series of small sculptural arthropods and insects was born. Justin tells me via email that each piece takes several hours to make and being unable to leave things unfinished he generally makes an entire new creature in one sitting, a monumental feat considering the scorpions can take an entire 12-hour work session as the watch springs, stems, gears and straps are assembled and soldered together (nothing is glued). I love the idea of the tiny light bulb for the spider abdomens.

If you’d like to see these crawly pieces up-close, you can see a few at the Bucktown Holiday Art Show December 8th and 9th, and you can also pick up some of the spiders on Etsy, at least for the moment. Tons more photos on Facebook. Via Colossal.
