Greg Gossel's Multi-Layered Pop Pieces
After watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, you may have a hard time looking at pop art and seeing it as a true movement. We even had a discussion right here on theMET whether comic books were a true form of art. Today, I thought I would introduce an artist named Greg Gossel, an artist undeniably inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. Using an array of media involving silkscreen, experimental Xerox copy and transfers, as well as various found billboard scraps and signage, Gossel creates kitschy, colorful art that’s reminiscent of years past with an interesting and modern twist.
Greg explains “the process of creating this new body of work consists of a constant layering of elements, building up the surface, and creating a unique history within each piece; adding new elements, while painting over and obscuring others. Through this process I try to explore the contrast between the mechanical repetition of silkscreen reproduction and geometric elements, with the organic and expressive qualities of hand painting and mark making.”

Postcards for Ants, Artist Creates A Miniature by Lorraine Loots
Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots took up a remarkable 365-day challenge: to create a miniature painting every single day for an entire year. The artist began her challenge in the beginning of 2013 and, after enjoying the routine of her successful challenge, she decided to continue with the “Postcards for Ants” project in 2014.
The young artist has dedicated this year’s works exclusively to Cape Town, which happens to be the official World Design Capital of 2014. Fans of Loots’s work can write to the artist and book up-coming paintings or prints, or suggest Cape Town-themed ideas or places for her to paint.
