I love the use of vintage photography techniques. Sally Mann is a favorite. Her most famous work is nudes of her children but I won't post that here. She does great landscapes too.

Oh and also Matthew Barney, but in a totally different way. I saw his show at the Guggenheim (NY) in 2002 and it was really impressive. It was all Cremaster Cycle stuff. The guided tour revealed how intensely thought out EVERYTHING was.

I saw that show. It stuck with me, I found it quite nightmarish, but beautiful in a strange way.

I am posting again in an attempt to keep this alive. Shouldn't this post be many pages long?

I went to Iceland a couple years ago and happened upon a sculpture garden highlighting a famous native sculptor, Einar Jonsson. I really liked his stuff!

From http://www.skulptur.is/index.e.html: "Jónsson completely rejected naturalistic depiction and publicly criticized the classical art tradition, which he felt had weighed artists down. He emphasized the need for artists to forge their own path and cultivate their originality and imagination instead of following in the footsteps of others."

I'm pretty sure Banksy will always be my favorite artist. I love his point of view. No matter where he is, he always graffitis something that makes people think and take notice. I respect that.

I have always loved Duane Hanson.
I also really like these illustrations by Scott Campbell.
