The Force Is Strong With This One

December 20, 2013 - Photo District News Online

Celebrity and advertising photographer Dale May loves Star Wars because “it has more iconic, amazing characters than any other film to date.” The Star Wars figures in May’s series, “LEGO WARS,” seem to come to life. May imagined what they’d look like if they were alive (X-ray Darth Vader, Chrome Trooper/Trooper X-ray), as they’d be dressed up for Halloween (Mickey Trooper), and then as fashionistas (Coco Vader, V3PO, Tiffany Trooper/Tiffany Trout). The macro photographs are then manipulated and enhanced in Photoshop and then printed with acrylic front mounting and backed with aluminum dibond which May says gives the prints “a contemporary, high-polished look, not unlike the toys themselves.” Check out the complete “LEGO WARS” series at the Samuel Owens Gallery.

Artist Folds Dollar Bills to Make Money Talk

August 25, 2013 - Bill McKenna and Felicia Barr

Dan Tague may not be the first artist to point out the central role money plays in American politics and culture, but few have used the currency itself to illustrate their argument so effectively.

After his studio was ruined by the flooding which devastated New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Tague had a lot of time on his hands.

He used that time and those hands to start folding dollar bills - and in doing so came across a new way of both expressing his frustration and making a political statement.
