    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.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
