Mixed-Media photographs by Amber Isabel

mixed-media photographs of young Dutch artist . Amber Isabel sees the use of beauty as a means to temporarily deny the chaos and incompleteness of daily reality.At first glance her images convey a sense of serenity, inviting the viewer in. Once inside the calmness appears unbearable to her struggling subjects.

 Surreal Galactic Photography  by Silvia Grav

Tumblr

Photographer Silvia Grav achieves a brilliant, dreamlike aesthetic by appropriating techniques that include superimposition, multiple exposure and solarization. The outcome is a captivatingly dark, surreal exploration and study of subjective interposition. Questions are tacitly posed through her images: How does one interpret? What are the affects of dreams on the unconscious and conscious alike? How does time and thought affect memory? As a result, her photographs tend to function like condensed narrations suspended between empiricism and mental projection.

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

Contemporary Photography includes many names, but a couple who’s work stands out is Robert and Shana Parkeharrison. Their artist statement says,”We create works in response to the ever-bleakening relationship linking humans, technology, and nature. These works feature an ambitious narrative that offers insight into the dilemma posed by science and technology’s failed promise to fix our problems, provide explanations, and furnish certainty pertaining to the human condition.” An example of this idea is the image above entitled, The Passage. Showing a man laying a walkway through an endless water terrain. Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison have been collaborating for years in creating artistic photographs. Their work has been displayed in 18 solo exhibitions and over 30 group shows presented worldwide in places such as Japan, Canada, and Italy. In addition, their work can be found in over 20 prestigious art collections, including the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution and the George Eastman House. The ParkeHarrisons also lecture extensively on art and human influences on the environment

Cajsa von Zeipel: Sexual Limbo

Taken in as individual pieces, Cajsa von Zeipel’s sculptures are technically striking with expressions that flawlessly  render emotions ranging from disgust to ecstasy. However, studied as part of a larger whole, they begin to tell a story. In one end of the gallery, a young woman assists her ailing friend while looking across the room with her mouth agape. Following her gaze, you see a figure of a man masturbating to an orgiastic scene unfolding in the other room. One of the three women involved appears to relish his presence, which is evidence of her own desirability and fodder for a growing narcissism that is further encouraged by a mirror reflecting the scene from below. All of them are judged silently by a man sneering in disgust in the next room.

The figures in Cajsa von Zeipel’s meticulously constructed worlds are at odds. The women are nubile and full of sexual energy, but the men are unsure how to connect.  They are isolated and sexually frustrated at their relegation to a world of perpetual voyeurism and looking yet never touching.

Meet the Real Life Invisible Man- Liu Bolin

35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.

Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.

The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level.

20 Things You Didn’t Know About X-Men Past/Present (for Virgin Movies)

It seems like a distant memory now, but I think it’s fair to say that Bryan Singer’s X-Men (2000) marked a point where comic book movies showed they could be relevant and engaging for adult audiences. It was the match dropped on the trail of petrol, if you will, and over the last 14 years there have been a huge number of great examples of the genre, whereas before they’d been few and far between, basically having tailed off following the nadir that was Batman and Robin.

So, with Bryan Singer returning to the franchise for Days of Future Past, it was cool of Virgin Movies to commission another ‘Things you didn’t know about’ piece, following Iron Man, Star Trek, Superman, Wolverine and Robocop which you can see collated on my portfolio here.

I suggested splitting the twenty facts into past and present so that it would play nicely against the titular future past. Then what’s interesting is you get an extra level to it, where you have James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender playing the ‘past’ versions of Professor Xavier and Magneto, but of course they’re also the younger actors who are attached to the franchise in the present.

Naturally many more characters might have been included, but it would have quickly got to a point where the relative scale of characters would have been too small compared to the text, so having two character portraits in each ‘wedge’ around the X for the facts felt like the most effective way to go.

Really looking forward to seeing the movie ASAP!
