Shoot the Breeze: Tess Roby

Tess Roby‘s photography shares with us a world of unforeseen angles and quiet moments. Native to Montreal, Tess began shooting and experimenting with her Minolta point-and-shoot at an early age, developing an eye for composition. The young photographer shoots exclusively on film, intrigued by its grain and the richness of colour it provides. Her eye seems to work best…

A Conversation with Brie Moreno

INTERVIEW BY REBECCA STORM SEE BRIE’S COMIC IN ISSUE 15 Thanks to an awful hangover and me being a useless lump, I came across Brie Moreno‘s work when I fell into an Instagram hole and found her feed. With garish colours, existential toys and snapshots of the terrifyingly prosaic, her aesthetic seemed to cater to babies on mushrooms,…

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 14 BY BRAD PHILLIPS In the May 2014 issue of Modern Painters, I wrote an article called “The Quotational Pandemic” in which I attempted to address the slew of painters I saw at that time (art being so terribly boring and unoriginal now that this has already passed) who were mimicking European…

Shoot the Breeze: Chris Wright Evans

The proliferation of photography via technology anticipates a world in which everything is documented. Put another way: everything is waiting to be photographed. Until something is rendered through and upon the medium of photography it arguably doesn’t exist, since the photograph is an essential standard for a consensus on truth. However, as more of the…

Shoot the Breeze: Max Marshall

Max J. Marshall’s series of photographs satisfy our voyeuristic fascination with other living species and their behaviours in so-called natural settings. This satisfaction is accompanied by an onset of questions: Where did he take these photos? How did he encounter these creatures? His use of intriguing angles, cropped framing, and a strong pursuit of detail…

GOT IT FOR CHEAP VOL 2, 3, 4.

I’ve never been crazy about going to art exhibitions… In most cases, the artists showing are usually quite established; it’s unlikely you’ll discover some underground, under-appreciated artist. And there’s no chance you will be taking home any of the work in a material sense, as art world prices can be afforded by few and far between. I…

The character is mammoth, with undulating arms and an anthropomorphic braid; badass, aggressive and splendid. Her…
