iTouch Art: Paul VanderGrient

Paul is my dear old friend. He painted these with the tip of his finger on a little apple computer designed to play music.  I hear he is not the only one to become obssessed with this free application.  Amazing.

Robb Jamieson: 1327-Forever

Born in 1327, Jamieson's art has developed into a tantalizing body of work that summons even the toughest MS-13 members into a spasm of cosmic delight. His work, created on 315.x24cm pieces of paper is done with ink and watercolour. It is noteworthy to mention that the ink used in this 2009 series was retrieved by Jamieson who wrestled a giant squid off the coast of Honduras. Furthermore, the aqueous solution used in the watercolours is, in fact, sloth urine. We salut Robb Jamieson's work and are extremely excited that he allowed us to post his artwork here at hermie island let alone post our own 'blurb,' about it. Go Robb Go! Ps. Robb got his forehead glued shut this weekend after dinner club but he is doing just fine.

Adventure to Middle Earth: Birthmark

Finally the mystery of how Monique cut her foot is solved. We loved it so much that we wanted to take it home with us. Birthmark.

Also, please note that we do have furniture, a kitchen, living room, two porches, another bedroom and sixteen glasses, four dishes, two forks, a curling iron, a wardrobe, a defroster, a thermostat, three corn tortillas, lemongrass, hammocks, diapers, several books, a book club, real life dinosaurs, bath toys (lots of them), monsters, crystal figurines, egyptians, raccoons, no electricity or internet, peanut butter, ghosts, randy reneau, a real hieronymus bosch, a photograph by Daniel Haber, Bobby Shore, Jeffrey Hackett, Machu Pichu, the rose in the Beauty and the Beast movie, Clement Greenberg, two english riding hats, one fireplace, a mother's son, fiona's heart, the ghosts of christmas past, present and future, cobwebs, a salmon head, a white snapper, nine q-tips, a bbq, a human with achondroplasia, lenny's next year's collection, the Lords of the rings and yes, we've been hiding both Tu Pac and Yves Saint Laurent and the secrets to middle earth. Oh and we have diet coke and make-up, did i mention we have a curling iron?



A typical Sunday afternoon at Hermie Island...

Il Lee: Some Kind of Wonderful





Il Lee’s ballpoint pen works on paper and canvas are innovative and historically grounded. Using ballpoint pens, Il Lee creates intimate to large-scale blue and black ink on white paper drawings and large format, subtly colored works on canvas. These works are contemporary and clearly reference traditional Asian ink painting while remaining accessible and conceptually rigorous. Lee’s work with its unorthodox media and distinctive style are widely appreciated by art-viewing audiences worldwide, with recent important exhibitions of his works at major museums, galleries, and cultural institutions both nationally and internationally.
