Joy de Vision

Kyle Ranson's career is testament to an "encouraging hippie mother," as he puts it in his online bio. A painter since toddlerhood, the San Francisco artist has managed to maintain the chaotic color choices, purely sensual subject matter, and think-outside-the-box…

Wolfgang’s Slideshow

Artists who trade in found items often get lucky: An old photographic slide can decompose just so, producing a beautifully decayed image when printed. Berlin-based artist Wolfgang Ganter doesn’t leave it up to the elements. As a student working with…

REAL ASTROLOGY For an Unreal World

Aries (March 21-April 19): I want to express my admiration for the adventures you've risked in 1995. You've had a sixth sense about when it's best to ignore all the "No Trespassing" signs. And yet you've also had a seventh…
