| Photography | 23 hours ago

Jeremy Liebman Photograph Of Suicidal Kitchen

Bagged Flowers In Garden

Dilapidated House With Graffiti

Platonic Thinker Sculpture

Motel Swimming Pool

Optimal Enchantment Sign Above Door

Jeremy Liebman’s photographs from ‘Optimal Enchantment’ deliberately steer away from familiar photographic tropes in order to jar our sensibilities, our familiar way of looking at an image, seek to present us with a picture that asks us to relook, re-examine, question our relationship between what we see and what we think. They refute the accepted language of photography and demand that we create our own.

Existing.

Dalston Anatomy In London

Snail On Fruit Sculpture

Yams And Exotic Fruit

Blue Woman And Fruit Sculpture

African Braids And Fabric At Ridley Street Market

Road Closed Sign In Dalston

Lorenzo Vitturi’s photographs from ‘Dalston Anatomy’ are, on the surface, a rich and vibrant design project. Yet scrape a little deeper, think a little harder, and you’ll quickly realise that this is a social document, is political in nature, that stands against the growing gentrification of an area of East London called Dalston where the Ridley Market is situated.

Richard Patterson’s Paintings Are Steeped In American And British Pop Culture

| Art and design | July 30, 2014

Richard Patterson Painting Of Yellow Cat

Blue Minotaur On Window Sill

Las Vegas Model Collector

Woman Behind Painted Glass

Come To Mama At Night

Model Minotaur In Paint

Portrait Of Artist As Older Man

Richard Patterson’s paintings are steeped in British and American pop culture, his dense multilayered pictures drawn from film, magazines, music and advertising. And while you might consider his re-appropriation of cultural imagery a skin deep play on contemporary tropes they mine deeper, have a more melancholic disposition, as if the weariness of a European sensibility can’t help but take an ironic swing at the incessant brightness of infinite American consumer happiness.

Cody Bratt‘s photographs make you want to get up and move, are deliberately emotive, tug at the heart strings, put you in a cinematic aspect from which you gaze out of at the world and come to slowly realise that its more exciting, accessible and possible than you ever thought before.

Lukasz Wierzbowski’s Extraordinary Photographs Of A Parallel Universe

Lukasz Wierzbowski Photograph Of Party Girls

Girl On Carpet With Fan

Girl Lying In Suit Bag

Women With Pattern Faces

Girls Playing In Car

Polish Tree Hugger With Long Hair

Mountain View Behind Steel Wall

Lukasz Wierzbowski‘s photographs bring us on an extraordinary trip through a parallel universe. One that we know yet is strangely out of kilter; over the top, full of explosive vibrant colours, demented patterns fighting for an audience and beautiful women mutating into their surroundings. Becoming part of the landscape rather than an element within it.

Aini Tolonen’s Abstract Photographs Of Our Industrial World Are Beautiful

| Photography | July 29, 2014

Aini Tolonen Abstract Photograph

Black Sea Undertow

Paint Trees In Spring

Motion And Action In Futurist Expression

Melting Snowman In Finland

Typhoon At Sunset

Nesting Birds And Sounds Of Spring

Aini Tolonen‘s abstract photographs threw me. When I first came across her images I assumed they were paintings, pictures marked with a brush, expressions in oil and acrylic, watercolour and ink. How wrong. How wrong. Instead these images are of detritus, a poem to the beauty found amidst the patterns and textures of modern life; rusting metals, decaying wood and peeling paint. She turns what we disregard into a beautiful picture that goes to the heart of urban society, our throwaway culture. In Tolonen’s world the spirit and beauty of ignored and abandoned objects are revealed in all their majestic glory.

Jen Kinney‘s photographs from ‘City Under One Roof’ take us into Whittier, a small town of 200 residents in Alaska, and scrape beneath its cold icy surface to reveal warm stories of a community who for one reason or another have ended up in this bizarre place. A town that’s only accessible via one of the largest tunnels in North America. A 2.6 mile tunnel through Maynard Mountain.

Michel Lentz’s Drawings Take Us On An Erotic Walk

Michel Lentz Drawing Of Naked Woman

German Life Model

Monotype Of Woman With Steel Girder

Naked Woman Reclining Chair

Nude Woman Sitting Cross Legged

Red And Black Lady Without Clothes

Woman In Underwear And Corset

Michel Lentz is an enigma but his drawings are not. They are beautiful. He takes us on a walk through erotic art, art deco and into a quick, expressive mood that echoes the figurative work of Egon Schiele, his playful line exaggerating, having fun with ink, each monotype a joyous ode to life drawing and the female form.

Uta Neumann Photographs Are About The Inbetween And The Intangible

| Photography | July 25, 2014

Uta Neumann Photograph Eaten Fruit

Submerged Tree In Lake

Empty Garden Chairs

Park Furniture Covered In Ice

Green Curtain In Walled Courtyard

Rock On Road Side

Sculpture Installation On Street

Uta Neumann’s photographs are about the unseen, the inbetween, the intangible. Each picture an attempt to capture a connection between man and nature, an image that questions our own relationship to the object. The result is a series of pictures in which we are forced to become more aware, to see a beauty in the banal and in doing so recognise the glory in the everyday. In the physical world around us.

Brenda Ann Kenneally’s ‘Upstate Girls’ Photographs Take A Scathing Look At Poverty And Inequality In America

| Photography | July 25, 2014

Brenda Ann Kenneally Photograph Of Mother And Child

Child With Cereal For Breakfast

Upstate Girl With Gun

Child Drinking Coffee From Baby Bottle

Family Sleeping In Single Bed

Family Watching TV And Playing Video Games

Pregnant Teenager Lying On Bed

Baby Sleeping Under Newspaper

Brenda Ann Kenneally‘s photographs from her ongoing project ‘Upstate Girls’ could be seen to be the most comprehensive social documents to come out of America in the last decade. It’s a scathing document, a terrible indictment of Western Capitalism in general and American society in particular. A poignant portrait of those who are left behind, who are trapped in a system that no longer needs them in a post industrial age. It’s a portrait of a social divide that is unspoken of; an underclass who are ignored by the politicians and the media while being exploited by the elite. A class of people who have been exiled from our culture to the landfill of industrial social history.

Leslie Martinez Drawing Of Twin Snakes

Coffins In Garden

Mexican Landscape Of The Dead

Mexican Pagan Candelabra

Fox And Heron In Forest

Skulls At Play In Desert

Reap Harvest In Building

Leslie Martinez‘s drawings are rich pictures, marked with an intensity that bring to mind the prints of Artemio Rodriguez whose medieval style prints bring the traditional Mexican aesthetic to life, injects the cartoonish carnivalesque imagery of Central America with a satire that’s born in contemporary urban life.
