Willy Verginer Sculpture 8

While they may look to be cast from resin, chiseled from stone or even 3D printed – these sculptures by Italian artist Willy Verginer are made of wood. His strikingly beautiful and dreamlike figures are covered with many textures; from smooth skin, to faceted rough surfaces and fascinating patterns in relief. His figures perform strange handstands, interact with woodland rabbits, and find themselves covered in delicate flowers – all giving the series a touch of the surreal. [Read more...]

If you combined the work of Salvador Dali with those Magic Eye books, you might have something close to the paintings of Canadian artist Sascha Braunig. Her works embody the unique duality of at once being highly beautiful and highly disturbing. They aren’t the type of things you want to see in your next dream or drug trip. [Read more...]

Mysterious Stories Unfold Underwater

Wednesday 11.28.2012 , Posted by

I had the pleasure of seeing Sir John Everett Millais’ classic painting Ophelia at the Tate Britain recently – so that might be the reason these cold, almost claustrophobic photographs really stood out to me. Created by Finnish artist Susanna Majuri, each image sees a woman underwater in quiet repose – much like Millais’ iconic work. The images are almost unnerving in their quiet stillness, leaving the viewer to wonder if the works protagonist is dead, sleeping or stylistically frozen… only the story of Ophelia gives us the answer for one of these works… [Read more...]

Real Cities Become Floating Islands in the Sky

Tuesday 11.13.2012 , Posted by

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. [Read more...]

Mysterious Heads: New Work from Stefan Zsaitsits

Thursday 10.04.2012 , Posted by

If you’ve ever felt like your head was stuck in the clouds, the characters of Stefan Zsaitsits can surely relate. His enigmatic figures each tell an imaginative story through their mysteriously drawn heads. Some morph into mountain ranges, others turn into geometric cubes and some even disappear. The simple style of his pencil based illustrations, childlike in their playfulness, belies the deeper aspects of the works and the vast imagination embodied in each. [Read more...]
