Brutal Design

Île-de-Jésus (aka Laval,Québec, Canada) native Philippe Malouin has created a wonderful suspended light structure "svetko lamp" for his most recent showing of new works at the NextLevel Galerie in Paris. Out of all his past works, I beleive that this pendant is truly Malouin's pièce de resistance.

NOTE: It's now officially official in this era of increased monetary divide that gold is here to stay.

Formal Colour Theory

UK visual artist Liam Gillick's use of colour and form is nothing short of wonderful. He has recently collaborated with Fashion label/store Pringle of Scotland to create a popup store at the Art Basel show in Miami, for which Liam created this beautiful table? stand? sculpture.

Gillick also created some great patterns for the Pringle of Scotland Spring/Summer 2012 collection:

Here are some of Gillick's other works

Gillick's work reminds me very much of American artist Donald Judd.
