Amy Guidry Explores the Psychology of Life and Death

Tuesday 04.09.2013 , Posted by

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.

Finding Humans In Nature: Surreal Cerebral Trees

Sunday 03.24.2013 , Posted by

Igor Morski 1

In a stunning series of digital illustrations called Nature, Igor Morski takes your imagination on a journey that reveals hidden human figures in “natural” settings. The Polish graphic designer creates a human facial profile shaped slice through the flora of various biomes to reveal a single tree resembling the brain with the trunk acting as the brain stem. The vibrant pictures conjure up thoughts of the inter-connectedness of humans with all forms of life on Earth. In other images, Morski creates feminine faces from branches and foliage, perhaps to represent Mother Nature or the essence of nature’s femininity. [Read more...]

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo Levitation 2

“To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been” said the famous surrealist Renè Magritte. That lofty aim is the ideal of contemporary Italian aritst Giuseppe Lo Schiavo and the root of his new series called Levitation. The collection of photo manipulations sees a Little Prince-esque world of historical landmarks – honorable mentions on many a ’7 Wonders’ list – which Lo Schiavo has photographed and placed atop floating rocky worlds which rise above mysterious empty seascapes.

Four-Eyed Cats are Creepy… Like Real Cats

Casey Weldon 4 Eyed Cats 3

Without even trying, cats can be really creepy at times. Well actually, maybe they are trying. They run maniacally around the house for seemingly no reason; they hide in boxes for us to find them; and most disconcertingly, they stare at us with those big, glowing, curious eyes. Artist Casey Weldon knows this so he’s lately been creating cat paintings with double the creepiness – cats with four eyes. [Read more...]

Reality Remixed: Photography by Bence Bakonyi

Wednesday 02.13.2013 , Posted by

Bence Bakonyi Photography 2

Young and talented, Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi is making a name for himself through strikingly crisp and realistic images with a surreal twist. His style emphasizes locations carefully chosen for their bright and uniform color palettes. In his series Transform, he takes this concept to the limit, matching his subjects clothing perfectly to the hues and shapes of the world that surrounds them. Often, objects in the scene are frozen in motion or suspended; impossibly floating in center stage. His works give one the feeling they are witnessing the normal world with heightened senses – catching the small moments and tiny details that create uniqueness and beauty. [Read more...]
