” We are two photographers: Isabelle Chapuis combine art and fashion, Alexis Pichot is a light painter artist. After the meeting of our two worlds, this series entitled ‘Blossom’ evokes a journey of fantasy; for it we set off colored smoke bombs in emotionally-charged backdrops found throughout our travels. The project originates from our participation in the Speak Focus photographic competition themed, ‘Paris, I love you’. We chose to depict love by using a red smoke bomb in the streets of Paris, and were awarded second prize. From that day on, we continue to perform as we move onwards. We read in the smoke, as we guess in the clouds, forms of the imagination; ghostly presence that has been or will be: everyone is free to see what they like.” – Isabelle & Alexis

‘A house on display at the All-Russian Exhibition Center in Moscow is built to resemble a typical European summerhouse with one exception — it’s upside down. Visitors will discover that even the curtains and contents of the fridge all have been installed upside down, appearing in an unusual perspective.’ Link here.

Nicola Samorì is an artist steeped in the tradition of 17th century Italian painting and sculpture, but with a determinedly contemporary stance. His allusions to the inspiration of Old Masters reveals how Samorì shares with them an idea of creating something new out of what already exists by means of artistic transformation. Works such as his figurative busts and sculptures made from wax push the tradition almost as far as possible from the idealized vision of Ancient Greece and the Renaissance to become deconstructed representations of classical sculpture. Nicola Samorì was born in 1977 in Forli, Italy, and lives and works in Bagnacavallo. He has exhibited widely both internationally and in the UK including solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Tubingen, Germany and Santa Maria delle Croci, Ravenna. He featured in the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale. (via Rosenfeld Porcini)

” I am interested in the tension between reality and representation of existence. I feel inclined to talk about the relationship between obsessions and detailed observance. The works that I do are project based which uses a process of reconstruction and fusion to examine the chaos of the regular city life. I like to experiment with different media like painting, photography, sculpture and video. A choice of media for particular idea is the important part in the process of my work. I always think about the control and releasing point, static and moment. My research area is specific everyday moments in which the consumer world repeats itself. The idea of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction of space; in a way tries to reduce the complication of visualizing my work. I want my work to lend visibility to such minutiae that often tend to get overlooked in the course of grandiose representations and this traumatic mark to be sensual, perfected, mechanical, a controlled gesture.” – Rajesh Kargutkar

Gray Malin, an L.A.-based photographer, graduated from Emerson College with a degree in photography and marketing. His work has been exhibited in the Dallas Museum of Art, David Streets Gallery in Beverly Hills, and Gallery 825 of the Los Angeles Art Association. In his photographs Malin searches for (and finds) beauty the world over, capturing breathtaking landscapes (often beach scenes) from a helicopter. The resulting photos and their gem-like hues are sun-soaked and almost impossibly perfect. Fittingly, Malin’s work has been featured in fashion magazines like Elle and he has collaborated with David LaChappelle, whose photographs also blur the boundary between commercial and fine art photography.
