    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.

Drones Capture Disparity Between Rich and Poor in South Africa

Lines6

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller reveals distinct lines between rich and poor in a striking (and unsettling) series of photographs. Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
