Andrea Wan: Illustrations from a Dreaming Mind

Andrea Wan illustrations 9

It’s difficult to pin down the etherial artwork of Berlin and Vancouver based Andrea Wan. Her work is the thing of a strange dream or a good high; some examples making us laugh out loud, others turning us introspectively inside. In her latest examples for the Pictoplasma show in Berlin we see sloths cavorting with larger than life humans wearing teepees for hats – while other small humans go camping inside. It’s just the kind of thing which still leaves us fascinated when we awake or sober up.

Amy Guidry Explores the Psychology of Life and Death

Amy Guidry Paintings 2

The recent collection of paintings from Louisiana based artist Amy Guidry brings the surreal so certainly into existence it seems to easily step off the canvas into reality. Her work is filled with animal and human figures, often taking center stage in what appears as a bleak and beautiful southwest american landscape. This highly ambitious imagery – from detailed rock formations, to skeletons and variously dissected creatures – would be arresting on its own, but it also explores concepts more profound: the rich layers of connection in the cycle of life.

Real Cities Become Floating Islands in the Sky

If you remember the 80s cult classic The NeverEnding Story, you’ll recall the desperate part of the film when the world of Fantasia begins to crumble away, leaving little more than a small island of rock remaining to stand on. Now, award-winning art director Reinhard Krug has created a series of imagination gripping images which seem to bring that story to our world, manipulating aerial photographs of major cities so they appear to be floating on rock. Here the resemblance to the NeverEnding Story ends, however as Krug’s images are far more serene – placing the cities gently in a sky of puffy clouds.
