Here is some work by an artist I'm really excited about right now. Her name is Mariah Robertson. I've posted three of my favorites here, "Bedroom Light", "100 Suns", "Galaxy Porchlights", and "Pool Water". To see more of her work you can check her website: http://www.m-a-r-i-a-h.com/
I admire the unrestrained colors, the lurid, poisonous looking pools and the images she does that look like amateur astronomy are evocative and funny at the same time. The psychedelic aspect of the work reminds me of the early Lucas Samaras images that I love, but this work is fresh and cheeky in a completely new way.
