Daniel Terna‘s photographs from ‘My First Wife Stella’ are part of a still and moving image project, a reflection and reinvention of a journey that happened over 40 years ago when his father, and his wife, took off on a road trip along Route 1, a north-south state highway that runs along most of the Pacific coastline of California for nearly 700 miles. A road known for its scenery and made famous by the Beat writers Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg.

| Art and design | February 27, 2015

Bridget Griggs Painting Primitive Woman

Flat Faces And Things

Cardinal City In Canada

Embracing Mother Earth

Infinity Fish Through The Universe

Love Is Free Painting

Bridget Griggs‘ paintings are rooted in life rather than academic training, her pictures a spontaneous expression of her life as a single mother, clown, model and actress. In this sense she’s an outsider artist, her aesthetic drawn from within rather than without, her influences and inspirations continually flowing from everything she does, encounters, becomes, rather than the formal history of painting.

Colin McCallum’s paintings are a vibrant riff on consumerist society, his pictures a remix of the visual overload that pulsates and stimulates us a daily basis as we work our way through the day; watching, looking, seeing, thinking. All of it wrapped up in a digital perfection of our desires that’s transmitted from TV screens, computers, electronic billboards, advertising billboards, packaging and glossy magazines.

Kyler Zeleny Photograph Halloween Zombie

Bum in Tights At Party

Ready Set Squat With Sad Christmas Tree

Daisy Chain Headband On Stoner

Electric Green Portrait Of Girl

Kyler Zeleny‘s photographs from ‘Ready, Set, Squat!!!’ set out on the same journey as the photographer Will Hartley, with both artists documenting their experience of living with squatters in London over a period of months. However, both take different paths. Hartley’s pictures a document on squatters in the city while Zeleny’s are a more intimate series of anti-aesthetic photographs that reflect a dissonance, a resistance to the logic of capitalist society and its obsession with accumulating an every increasing number of things. That they are squatters is happenstance. What seems to be more important is the attitude.

Life Model Staring Out Window

Lady Sitting With Seagulls

Impressionist Still Life With Paint Brushes And Torso

Couple In National Forest LA

Womans Back On Grey Background

Tatyana Grud’s paintings, of which there are few, take us back to the 19th Century, their aesthetic firmly rooted in the Post-Expressionist landscape. In particular the works of Paul Cezanne, Émile Bernard and Paul Gaugin, all of whom dragged the nude out of the romantic mists of the industrial age and into a primitive and colourful Fauvist world that laid the foundations for 20th Century Modernism.

Will Hartley‘s photographs from ‘In Between Dreams’ take us on a journey into London squats and a group of people he made friends with while living with them over an extended period of time. Like Ash Thayer‘s series’ This Land’ – which documented her life in a squat in the East village in Manhattan in the 1990’s – Hartley gives us an intimate portrait of life on the margins of society, of people who rely on each other to make ends meet, get through the day, their needs suffocated by the state and the relentless march of Capitalism.
