” 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

In this series “artist Duarte Vitória shares his vision with the spectator, through touching his deep senses. This time, the work embodies the concept of Revolution, as a permanent state of being. In the artist perspective, the evolution path sustains itself in the idea of constant movement, ever changing into new forms, new states of mind, new ideas; Sustains in the concept of the ever fresh and recreated human being. Vitória´s statement is about never submitting to a lethargic state of mind. Is about daring to change, daring to emerge ourselves in the profound dark of the human condition, without restrictions. With is vivid and rebel brushing, he intends to disturb the spectator, giving the impression of almost grabbing him. The interlocutor is choked by the inter-penetration of flesh, the marks and prints all over the bodies, claiming the Insomnia as a pre-revolutionary state of being. The large scale of the works amplifies the disturbing effect, well known as the digital print of the identity of this artist.”
