Tammy Mercure Photograph Of Rodeo Cowboys

Biker With Animal Skulls On Motorbike

Tattooed Man With Dog In Car

Man Wearing Hamburger And Fries Shirt

Gun Sign In Southern States Of America

Girls On Mobile Phones At Sunset

Tammy Mercure‘s photographs from ‘Cavaliers’ celebrate the Southern States of America, that weird and wonderful melting pot that we in Europe are in awe of, are gob smacked by, its sheer cultural vitality and the breadth of its often violent history making up a people very different from their brethren on the East and West coasts. This is a civil war conundrum. A place rooted in the confederacy, that has been marked by the slave trade, the plantation class, Native American culture, French colonialists, the poor Scottish and Irish immigrants and everything that wells from that; music, art, carnival, food, religious extremism, bigotry, libertarianism, voodoo. A colourful place that lives on the edge of our imagination.

Pointillist Hills On Fire

Stephen Rowe‘s paintings are born in Aboriginal art but have been influenced by a life that has seen him professionally racing motocross bikes, pursuing a ballet career for over 17 years and working as a carpenter. This varied artistic life – that led him from the Australian outback to LA – has contrived to create these large abstract pointillist pictures that breathe the earth of his homeland while looking towards the traditions of Western European Art.

Pleasure And Pain On Wrinkled Mattress

Plaited Horse Tail In Stable

Woman Holding Breast In Hand

Candle Sitting On Plank In Wood Fire

Antique Globe In Corner Of Room

Lola Hakimian‘s photographs from ‘Au Plaisir La Douleur’, or ‘Pleasure Pain’, explore the juxtaposition between indeterminate violence and gentleness in real life, in real time. These are not posed images, nor conceptually conceived, rather they are a series of photographs imbued with a very prosaic dichotomy. A tension that exists in the everyday banality of our lives.

Paolo Morales photographs from ‘These Days I Feel Like a Snail Without a Shell’ investigate the photographic virtues of observation and participation in a world in which dislocation and loneliness are more evident than ever, our society fragmented, people isolated, forced to live out their lives in a bubble of their own making. Imprisoned by their fears, anxieties and desperate need to be loved.

Girl And Bear In River

Dreaming Of New Mexico In Desert

Bear And Woman Having Sex In Bathroom

Perfect Place To Live With Giant Rabbit

Thirsty Dreams Of Sexual Desire

Washing Up Sex In Dark Kitchen

Katarina Janeckova‘s paintings are overtly sexual and energetic, strange pictures of her and a bear – and occasionally a giant rabbit – in various positions, in public and private spaces; an art gallery, at the kitchen sink, in a bathroom, en plein air. Each image a potent mix of sex, domination, romance and mystery all wrapped up in a mythological landscape. A wish fulfilment dressed up as an X-rated folk story.

Alexander Gronsky‘s photographs from ‘Pastoral: Moscow Suburbs’ garnered much attention when they first appeared in a book of the same name in 2013. Like many contemporary landscape photographers – in particular Chinese artists such as Bo Wang – Gronsky explores the liminal space between the city and the countryside, his pictures taking us into the ever expanding Moscow suburbs and its environs, a place in which people re-imagine the future by hanging onto pastoral activities of the past; picnicking, swimming, playing and walking.
