" All of my self-portraits are made standing in front of the mirror. I am not opposed to using photographs to help me see more. They are wonderful tools, but I find my visual curiosity constantly engaged in the mirror and more often than not, shut down by the photograph. Working from photographs feels like copying the work of the camera. If I can manage to engage my eyes enough to draw from photos, I end up with a drawing of a photograph, not a drawing of the subject and I usually find the image flat and boring. For me, drawing is a discipline of the eyes; it is about seeing things honestly and feeling the brain’s influence over the eye’s accuracy." - Ian Ingram
'Apex Predator' by Dominic Young and Mariana Fantich of UK based studio Fantich & Young. 'Fantich & Young's body of work entails a conceptual and aesthetical approach to the sculptural juxtaposition of symbolic ready-made materials. Their work addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world: Nature as model or nature as threat. Fantich & Young create art that subverts Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection with elements of supernatural ceremonial ritual. The concepts of nature and super-nature are explored in the work. Fantich & Young view this process as Darwinian Voodoo.'
'Feher’s work is direct and often dictated by the inherent characteristics of his chosen material. “Blossom,” exhibits five bright, soft pink fans made of extruded polystyerene, notable in the industry for its “well established reputation for long-term reliability and superior resistance to the elemental forces of nature: time, water, cold, heat, and pressure.” Feher’s fans assert a monochromatic exuberance of color as their smooth-skins glow with reflected light. The accordian-like form has uniquely manufactured, hinged pleats that effortlessly support the exaggerated scale of these featherweight sculptures.' Link here.
" I've spent the whole 2012 developing a new style. I was kind of bored about working only with vector illustration, I was seeking for a new unique style, something more warm, something that I can make with bare hands. I choose fuzzy felt because it's a kind of material which isn't used too much as a pure graphical media. My goal was to develop flat bidimensional collages, paper is already very used in illustration, plus it can't guarantee the same hardness than Fuzzy Felt does." - Jacopo Rosati
