‘Netherlands-based artist Redmer Hoekstra draws fascinating composite illustrations that merge animals and everyday objects or machines, from a lizard with computer keyboard scales to an owl with books for wings. At times he even brings three or more forms together, as with a whale emerging from a submarine, the entirety of which has the appearance of a banana. Whether you regard the pieces as humorous or slightly disturbing, it’s hard to deny the ingenious way each creature is formed.’

Flavia Pitis

Flavia Pitis’ art explores issues of identity and isolation. Her painting does not have the function to represent reality, but to make present what is missing in reality. Most times, Flavia Pitiș realizes this by isolating the subject and his confrontation with the loneliness of the chiaroscuro. Darkness introduces the immaterial, but sensitive forms of expecting something indefinable and outlines the aura of a mysterious presence. The universe of Flavia Pitiș’s actions unfolds in rooms without natural light. Painted by using the chiaroscuro technique, these works present actions that seem to be condemned by being made in the dark. In particular, this dark background creates the opportunity for the appearance of glows, flashes and reflexes. There is nothing else to help define space than the shadow cast by the human figure.

Sweet little kittens are transformed in a fire. Crawling from the ashes come forth grinning metallic devils with sharp claws and fire blazing in their eyes. Each candle should have a burning time of approximately 20 hours. Link.
