    photography

    I have had an interest in the material aspect of photography and the relationship between a degrading surface such as skin and the quality of gloss when it is manmade from a superficial point of view. This led me to experiment with latex and to make condoms relating to the idea of birth from fruit, vegetables, etc. and their sexual connotations.

    The images are an on-going series addressing the make-up of creating images and objects in a highly over-saturated world.

    photography

    Tim Gao is a freelance photographer from Shanghai, China.

    'Street photography is not just a sharp triggering of shutter to shape the outside world in the form of light and shadow. It is simultaneously a curious observation and emotional perception of what's happening in the ordinary streets at any moment when unpredictable dramas and realities are actually taking place.'

    'Seeing' addresses the notion of inherent potential and the understanding of meaningful perceptions from chaotic environments.

    It is rooted in a quote from poet and philosopher Paul Valery, “To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees.” When the viewer no longer sees a graphite line as only a graphite line, but instead appreciates its essence and perceives it as part of a greater whole, they have in a sense forgotten what it is they are seeing, and experience with fresh eyes. This phenomenology is what aesthetically drives my practice. Conceptually, it is rooted in the theory of gestalt – a theory of visual observation that studies our ability to acquire and maintain meaningful perceptions in an apparently chaotic world. While this body of work started as a purely aesthetic investigation of materiality and order, I have come to regard the choices that I make within my artwork as metaphors for the ways in which we as a society readily accept organization, rules, and control. My sensibilities are based in the social structures of control into which I was born and raised. Seeing Is has become a platform for me as an artist to directly address the subconscious implications of these systems.

    collage

    The images I create are the consummation of a road of fragmentation of accident and fortuity. The endless search for obsolete images is the translation of a struggle to create a space for the past in the present, an approach that intends to stimulate a connection between memory and imagination.

    From an exhaustive, impatient and spontaneous artistic practice, I manifest the necessity of deforming a world constructed on appearances, that increasingly memorizes itself through images.

    Through cutting, glueing and abusively manipulating photographies and text, I continue to develop a body of work with the will to create fictional realities, that end up being the result of unconscious explorations of my inner battles.

    painting

    I create paintings that examine the female perspective to redirect the male gaze and open up the conversation about sexuality in a jubilated light within the expanse of the internet age. I am declaring myself as the gazer or voyeur, giving an entry point to all, ultimately broadening my imaging of sexual experience to be a human one and not just limited to the second sex as object. My paintings contain several visual contradictions: they are aggressive yet calm, phallic but feminine, weighted but light. They combine a mixture of minute details and three dimensional assemblages that make up a language of release, its build-up and lull. My works serve as visual reminders about open ecstatic sexuality that rebukes the marginalization of the objectified gender. What I am attempting to mirror through my collaged paintings is our current cultural epoch and slow down the viewing process to shift female depiction and find its relevancy in its current millennial trajectory.

    photography

    Antinomia is a French artistic duo of two graphic designers, Celine Andreassen and Helene Blanc.

    Celine works with colours flowing in the dark, subliming daily objects in a very cinematographic universe. Helene experiments with emotions with liquid materials, unstable and utopia image of the body.

    collage

    My Name is Nicola Kloosterman and I am an artist and printmaker from the Netherlands. My images are not created, but found in the torrent of our visual communication and carefully excavated by bringing connected images together to create a new visual story. My work explores underlying currents and emotions that are at the very heart of our being and connect us all. Every weekday I post an image in my instagram account to hold myself accountable for actually doing the work instead of just thinking about it.

    'Death Landscapes III' - The transitory nature of imagery and material examined through a series of internal landscape collages. Constructed with layers of cut plain paper, the miniature relief images become visible when light casts shadows across the surface, demarcating and defining space to complete the work.
