    so delicate and fragile

  • Janet Saturn

    I was looking at a lovely new book about painting book by Kurt Beers and found the section about Emma Bennet’s work. It was so so beautiful:
    Ink black worlds of nature artificially arranged like sweet ornaments in still life, floating posies of leafy pink roses, an elegantly-dead hare hanging from a string, decadent fabrics laden with lush grapes and one pink rose (Not any hunt, 2012). Or an old ship laden ceremoniously with roses sailing in the night (Always is always now, 2010). Kurt Beers (2014) explains that Bennet’s work explores death and it’s effects of time as “painstaking homages to the nature morte tradition”, while also inspired by 17th century Dutch masters (still life painting). Bennet says “My work is about the value of life and all living things”. The paintings seem to reveal the delicacy and fragility of living things with great detail, like tiny funerals and memories, like poems and melodic songs in the darkness, with fragments of light revealing vast detail of meaningful imagery.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
