      Its kinda nice that these look more feminine than Kehoe’s work. They would look good together.

        Actually, a while back I found Kathleen’s work and I felt an immediate kinship with it. I contacted her right away and we’ve been friends and have shown together since. It’s great seeing her worlds evolve over the years. Beautiful work.

        wow that’s so amazing – i love that people immediately saw the connection and there actually WAS a real-life connection made

  • Bmac

    Yeah I was going to say these remind me so much of Andy Kehoe. I guess they’re both kinda folky/naive?

    Hauntingly beautiful

  • Albert

    This look a lot like, Remedios Varo the Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter, not the same but a lot of the same style.

    • Andrew

      I agree

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
