    Love that these are realistic in style and hallucinatory in subject matter.

    Excellent surrealist paintings and some very nice still life paintings too, they look very real. The painting with the Northern Lights in is brilliant, I love the imagination. I think my favourite has to be the first painting for it’s detail and intricacy, the figs and the basket are beautifully painted and the painting has so much in it to explore.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
