Wilhelm The Maker

p p p Wilhelm The Maker is an animated short that explains the story of a miserable village and a misunderstood giant. The giant (Wilhelm) enters the village by night, stealing various objects. Some townsfolk regard him as just a myth, others fear him, believing him to be some sort of evil spirit. The only real knowledge of Wilhelm is a result of hearsay and rumour, but the reason behind his actions aren't known... Wilhelm The Maker is produced by Jack Hudson (previously-blogged) and Adam Hancher. By all means, check it out. it's an incredible film. p p p

David Esterly

p p ' David Esterly works in the tradition of Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721), whose spectacular cascades of flowers, fruits and foliage revolutionized ornamental sculpture during the age of Christopher Wren. After the 1986 fire at Hampton Court Palace, Esterly was asked to step into the shoes of this long-dead master when he was commissioned to replace the seven foot-long Gibbons carving destroyed in the flames. At the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in 1998-9 he curated the first ever Gibbons exhibition, and wrote the accompanying book, Grinling Gibbons and the Art of Carving. In 2002, as a guest artist at the American Academy in Rome, he produced the first of his Arcimboldesque heads. ' (Continue...) p

Strandkanten

o Strandkanten is a new housing area just south of the Centre of Tromsø, attractively situated on a reclaimed area in the Tromsø strait. This area is an important part of the city’s development strategy, where a concentrated growth from within will strengthen the activity in the centre and reduce the need for transportation.

Sarah Bridgland

bridgland1 bridgland3 ' Sarah Bridgland’s diminutive paper creations inhabit the territory between sculpture and collage. Delicately fashioned out of second-hand ephemera collected from junk shops and fragments of Bridgland’s own printed media, they create spaces where the real and the imagined co-exist, where fact and fiction collide. Each piece is a myriad of textures, shapes and lettering, reflecting Bridgland’s interest in the formal concerns of the Russian avant-garde and Constructivism. ' bridgland2

Anwen Keeling

keeling1 keeling2 ' Anwen Keeling’s beguiling, realist paintings capture suspended moments in fictional lives with a reverence for drama, suspense and elegance. Like film stills from an Alfred Hitchcock thriller, Keeling’s isolated female figures are placed in a series of interiors where the space is either suffused with subtle, refracted light or illuminated by the harsh glare of an electric bulb. A film noir ambience is achieved with chiaroscuro effects and deep shadows which suggest an emotional and psychological undercurrent to the work. Yet the viewer is left to create their own narrative.
