Tatiana Plakhova - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere." -Tatiana Plakhova, Moscow, Russia

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

TOP 100 2013
[Photo by: Shelbie Dimond] 939 is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939 only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939 back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939 in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore. According to HistoryOrb.com, 4 major events took place in year 939 that were documented: July 8th (The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi), August 6th (Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors), October 2nd (Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans), October 27th (Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England)...which all has nothing to do with EK. Nonetheless, 939 is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013!

MAX CAPACITY Part Deux

art blog - Max Capacity - empty kingdom
Max Capacity is back! Previously featured back in August 2012, interviewed on June 2010, and securing a spot on our TOP 100 of 2010, Max Capacity returns with more of his digital/new media/pixelated (call-it-what-have-you) work. "Digitally remixing" reappropriated images and video/film stills from yester-years, Max Capacity transforms them into uniquely distorted and chaotic standalone pieces that reminds me of the good ol'days trying to watch scrambled porn on cable.

Mathieu St-Pierre

Mathieu-St-Pierre_web1
Canadian artist Mathieu St-Pierre uses traditional analog video signals produced by various computer programs to create his visual works utilizing visual imperfections and corrupted files to paint his "digital canvas." "The images not only document the fragility of those virtual data, they are often capable of triggering memories and associations from real world life experience. We are consequently faced with electronic malfunctions in the realm of pixels versus the perfect imagery."

Mr. Ian Wright creates pixel-based artwork using all kinds of different materials. Ian is motivated by trying to push his work somewhere new. He prefers to let the materials used to influence the outcome of his artwork. I believe he is from the UK. But what do I know, I'm not a journalist, and I'm just a bunny.

art blog - EKTOP2010 - empty kingdom
(Photo by: berserker / Steve Skafte ) Within the hallowed halls of Empty Kingdom, our contributors tend to be very proud about the art that we curate. I wouldn't say it's a competition to put up the best artists, but when someone finds a really good artist first, we usually compliment each other with "Dammit!!!" or "Bastard who stole my post."
