Joseph McGlennon

 photo unnamed-4_zps82pixqb9.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpsjgyvkclq.jpg  photo unnamed-11_zpswkauciic.jpg 'Joseph McGlennon’s photographic works are majestic recreations of animals in their natural habitats – the first kangaroos to be seen by European eyes, parrots perching on a branch surrounded by exotic blooms, the extinct Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) fresh from killing its prey. McGlennon’s lens brings his subjects out of the realm of exotic specimen or historical curiosity and pushes them, living and breathing, into today. McGlennon takes hundreds of different photographs and spends weeks layering and arranging them to arrive at the final image. The landscape is as important as the animal itself – there are no blurred backgrounds or subdued foregrounds in McGlennon’s montages. The inclusion of every detail creates a hyper-real effect that pulls the viewer into contact with the flora and fauna that the planet stands to lose. McGlennon came to photography following a successful career in advertising. He won the 2015 William and Winifried Bowness Photography Prize for Florilegium #1, his picture of two parrots perched on tropical foliage, inspired by Joseph Banks’ botanical drawings.'

These landscapes, by artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Edwin Church, were deeply rooted in the political constructs of the time and depicted the land as a bountiful Eden, a limitless frontier ripe for conquest. I take these images out of their familiar context, the framed canvas, and paint directly on wood slices with bark intact. These landscapes appear as an homage to the idyllic art of the Hudson River School yet, by viewing the painting’s surface, the cross section of a tree, any sense of nostalgia or celebration of nature is countered by the evidence of its destruction." - Alison Moritsuguby  photo unnamed-11_zpsvkjiaevc.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpshkgopw1k.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpsffzsauvq.jpg

Nyoman Masriadi

 photo unnamed-8_zpsy0z1r6vz.jpg  photo unnamed-11_zps4ubwasfo.jpg  photo unnamed-12_zps7t5x58om.jpg Nyoman Masriadi (b. 1973 in Gianyar, Bali, lives and works in Jogjakarta, Indonesia) Nyoman Masriadi’s paintings frequently depict superhuman figures whose narratives, while rooted in Indonesian cultural history, offer witty and often biting social commentary on contemporary life and global pop culture. Through his control of light, shadow and volume, Masriadi endows these monumental characters with a sculptural, almost three-dimensional presence. Sometimes these characters appear in the archetypal roles of comic book heroes, cowboys, soldiers and athletes, but just as frequently, they are just powerfully built men and women engaged in solitary acts of strength or captured in private moments of vulnerability.  photo unnamed-13_zpskc49c5w2.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpsi25ibj4v.jpg

Tom Haney

 photo unnamed_zpspupfeiwq.jpg  photo unnamed-1_zpsci2hihov.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpsdtfyakln.jpg Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1962, Tom Haney has always been fascinated by mechanical movement. Once at the age of 2, he became separated from his family in a museum while being transfixed by a mechanical diorama. In subsequent years, his fascination would manifest itself often - he regularly took apart household items, much to his parents' disapproval. He took art classes in high school and attended college studying Industrial Design. Before becoming a full-time artist in 2000, his professional work consisted of making props, models and miniatures for television commercials, still photographers, and motion pictures.  photo unnamed-3_zpsh9skgvlg.jpg  photo unnamed-5_zps16tpkkmn.jpg  photo unnamed_zpsl8raptvw.png
