Eva Berendes: Spring/Summer

The exhibition’s arrangement vaguely resembles a long shut down retail store, constituted of objects reminiscent of abandoned display elements–an allusion also hinted at by the title of the show. Spring/Summer is a playful jab at the way in which the fashion and design industries have trivialized seasons, using them to delineate similar saleable objects from one another four times a year.

Finding Inspiration

by KATHY RUGH

Every artist seeks inspiration to keep them active in their practice. Photographer Emmet Gowin has found inspiration for his work in a variety ways. Some of his early work in the 1960’s and 70’s centered on imagery of his wife, Edith. She became his muse.

Chang jia: Cruel and beautiful…


This exhibition’s major work Sitting Young Girl depicts a young girl sitting on top of a glass jar containing eels, which appears as if the girl is being cruelly punished, but by showing the beautiful backside of a nude female figure, the artist reveals the male-driven gaze of how society views the female form.

Richard Mosse The Enclave

Mosse was drawn to eastern Congo because of the inherent problems of representing its cancerous cycle of war. Struck by the absence of a concrete trace of the conflict on the landscape, Mosse documented rebel enclaves and sites of human rights violations in a way which attempts to overturn traditional realism, and see beneath the surface.

Guy with a Go-Pro jumps off cliff to save brother from Avalanche

Footage from continuous, mounted camera equipment like dashcams and Go-Pros are now showing us the eerie first-person experiences of trucks overturning on the highway and a pelican learning to fly.  But to bring it to a more human angle, this video shot in the chutes of Vail, Colorado is pretty stunning when you consider how dangerous avalanches are.

Long Winter

by KATHY RUGH

It has been a long, hard winter for many of us. It seems like the cold weather and snow keeping coming. But before long spring will arrive and brighten up our days and moods. In a final celebration of winter, to help remember its beauty within the harshness, we can look at a series of images titled “Island” by Maroesjka Lavigne.
