Artem Rogowoi’s Oil and Gold Leaf Paintings

Artem Rogowoi’s oil and gold leaf paintings offer quiet, yet rich moments. In works like “Chamomile,” the artist’s rendering of elements such as hair or a bed of leaves carry unexpected textures. And each carries a fantastical quality, even when packed with everyday elements.

In an Artospective interview with the Ukraine-born painter, he offered this on his initial pull toward art: “Honestly I don’t remember why started to practice art, because it was many years ago and in different periods cause was be different. The first step was be art school, then art college and the finish my learners way was be Kharkov Academy Design and Arts where I was learn restoration of painting. It was important for my life, because I learned painting technology and something technical like fresco and others.So, it’s my metier and I love what I do.”

A Blooming Piuva Tree -Brazil

This reflective photograph is just one of the reasons to visit Brazil. You are looking at a Piuva tree during blossom season. You can find these trees and more when you visit various parts of Brazil. Maybe you are visiting the beautiful country to absorb the history. Maybe you are on your way to the Amazon. Perhaps you are just looking for a beach escape.

Whatever the reason, try and seek out one of these magnificent trees while you are in the country. Take a moment, and a few breaths, to really appreciate the simple beauty of this blossoming beauty.

ANATOMIE DES WALDES - Markus Schroll

(ANATOMY OF THE FOREST)

LOOKING FOR A NATURE BEYOND OUR ARTIFICIAL WORLD

In my latest projects, I am working on a dual understanding of the natural and the artificial world. Roads, woods, pieces of grass, tree trunks appear metaphorically in their photographic compositions as the last ghost of the real world. The resulting images are photographic montages but scenarios created by myself.

The series are conceptually situated between land art and a kind of performance. I´am showing different constellations of a possible forest and finally trying to awake the los spirit in a kind of performance creating a forest as timber, as a mythical forest, a firewood or as ufo landing pad. All this staged in a steril studio inbetween bare concret walls, awaken astonishment or scare, but last not least some kind of humor and seriousness.

The Stunning Dance Photography of  Lois Greenfield

“I’ve spent the last 35 years of my photographic career investigating movement and its expressive potential. My inspiration has always been photography’s ability to stop time and reveal what the naked eye cannot see. What intrigues me is making images that confound and confuse the viewer, but that the viewer knows, or suspects, really happened.The ostensible subject of my photographs may be motion, but the subtext is time. A dancer’s movements illustrate the passage of time, giving it a substance, materiality, and space. In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture. My interest in photography is not to capture an image I see or even have in my mind, but to explore the potential of moments I can only begin to imagine. Thanks Jubilant Studios/Archatlas

Khoros

Project from Segovan is a collection of captures featuring various dance performances using Depthkit and a Microsoft Kinect:

In this series of short video clips, I explore volumetric filmmaking applied to dance &  choregraphy.

Using depthkit‘s volumetric video capture software, I re-shot, virtually, the various improvised performances, after they had been filmed. This allowed me to get much closer to the performers, to follow them around and ⁄ or to adjust or re-think the camera position and the camera movements.

Nick Sullo’s Vivid, Techno-Punk Illustrations

Nick Sullo, also known as xsullo, crafts techno-dystopic works that move between analog and digital approaches. Touches of surrealism and a distinct color palette blend with Sullo’s tight linework, reminiscent of Moebius, techno-punk anime, or artists within the Heavy Metal roster. The artist often works abstractions into the pieces that resemble both digital glitches and painterly touches.

The artist also has nearly a decade of experience visual effects in film, TV, commercials, and video games. Recent projects include Stranger Things on Netflix, Gotham, and the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film.

The artist was born and raised in California. He developed a process in which in will sometimes recreate work done digitally on the canvas with acrylic paint and spraypaint.

The Wonderful Tapestries of  Maximo Laura

Maximo Laura is a world renown textile artist who was awarded the honor of “Amauta (Grand Master) and National Human Treasure” by the Peruvian government. In 1984 Laura began the collection and preservation of some of his tapestries. These works are considered to be his most important and richest artistic visions. In 1998 he began construction of the Home/Workshop Laura, a building of several floors located in Lima, where the artist’s private collection is permanently exhibited. This building became the first museum dedicated to contemporary Peruvian tapestry, and is the current main site of the MML - Museo Maximo Laura.

Master of Glass, William Morris

For more than twenty-five years, William Morris has captivated and intrigued the art community with hauntingly evocative and beautiful glass sculptures. He has captured the imagination time and again by creating objects that appear to be ancient stone or woodcarvings, not the modern glass sculptures they actually are. His art speaks of human origins, myth, ancestry, and ancient civilizations. It symbolizes a harmony between humanity and nature and provides a ghost-like bond to the world around us – a world that is often forgotten, ignored, and abused.

Morris gathers much of his inspiration from ancient cultures from around the world – Egyptian, Asian, Native American – all peoples who respected and admired the land they inhabited. Because of this, Morris’s artwork has become something all its own: culturally distinct and yet familiar to all cultures. His pieces embody a spiritual quality that sharply contrasts old beliefs with those of the modern world. These objects speak to our senses and continuously beg us to explore them further.
