The core focus of my work is to raise questions, reveal in the inconsistencies, and interrogate the obvious through a series of connections and to create a state of self-awareness. Each concept dictates its own way of revealing itself so the means of expression are determined by this." - Radu Cioca  photo radu_cioca_36_1_zpsfa7692d0.jpg  photo radu_cioca_38_0_zps954da780.jpg

Since graduating Clydebank College here in Glasgow i have been working full time on my Art and have created some interesting painting series whilst experimenting with several different and unique techniques and media. My Meteorology Series are a collection of mixed media paintings that are inspired by infrared satellite images of extreme weather conditions across the planet, whilst my Abstract series focuses on trying to show the beauty found in the every day world especially when nature and the environment have an influence. I've always been so inspired by nature, the environment and the beauty of the planet and have found that through painting I can express what I see and feel more clearly than with words. To me often the simplest and most overlooked things are extraordinary, like the surface of the ocean seen from below or the weathered rustic face of an old wooden door, The textures and the unusual colours found in nature can be very inspiring especially when the elements manipulate them. My goals and hopes for the future of my art is to try and make an impact with abstract art on how we see the environment and nature and try to show abstract that is a little different from the normal." - David Munroe  photo IntheShallows_zps1440e574.jpg  photo IntheShallowsHomeExample_zps4b7a24ed.jpg

Atropos by Nezaket Ekici

She carries out an act of the self-liberation, while she frees herself with the help of a sissle from long ropes fastened at the roof and to the hair. She cuts off a part of her hair and in this way dissociates herself from a piece of herself. This work can be seen as a vital discussion about the question on the sense of life, that is partly characterised by striving for freedom. Particularly, because hair can be considered as a symbol of life. The name of the Performance installation "Atropos" is related to the Greek myth of the moira, the goddnesses of fate. Atropos, who is one of them splits according to the myth the fate threads of the life with a sissle. The artist shows with the radical act of the hair-cut a way out. She takes fate into her own hands and frees herself, like Atropos did. At least the act of the cutting can be seen as an attempt of liberation in itself."  photo 2010-46456-68586_32275_11453_t_zpsc584ec2f.jpg  photo foto-46456_38354_13828_zpsb90eb677.jpg

Kofta

 photo 6_zps87e5a9c4.jpg  photo 15_zpsba8bed03.jpg  photo 10_zps917d8009.jpg Konstantin Kofta created his own label, Kofta which combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. His garments are sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable. Kofta uses rough skin, irregular shapes and unique scents to create a totally new vision of the attire as a whole. Designer Konstantin Kofta combines rural and urban perceptions, and embraces the unintentional and unexpected, which provide inspiration for current and future collections. Each collection appears as a form of art installation.  photo 1_zps4fdde655.jpg  photo 13_zps9f0f8a46.jpg

Psychopathic Traits by Thomas Fowler

Each trait corresponds to that individual's personality in some way. I found these interesting as they just seemed like normal aspects of everyone's personalities and also certain celebrities and figures of authority." - Thomas Fowler  photo donnyforweb_zps103fa13a.jpg  photo neilh_8_zps1cebe338.jpg  photo jong2_zps34c5622d.jpg

The latter moved there twenty years in the Seine-et-marnaise campaign, installing his workshop near a wooded lot. This small forest, the artist looks change with the seasons, became an inspiration vector and the main subject of his creations. The photographs of trees and landscapes become a drawing medium, the pencil accentuating the chaotic mesh plant for rendering paradoxically very delicate.  photo 8-LdeF-ndeg8-100x80-canal-A_zps218f56b1.jpg  photo 2-Invit_zps549044b4.jpg  photo image-17_zps68aac34f.jpg

Women became the metaphor for mother nature as wild and sexual thing exploited and explored in my work, and animals became the subjects of examining abnormalities and evolution. Taking ideas that I had learned from ideas on feminism, I began to draw parallels in our ways of controlling and objectifying women to how we also think about the earth and it’s resources therein." - Hannah Faith Yata  photo StudyofaDevilWoman_webbyversion_zps1c39061a.jpg
