(click images for detail) For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall , where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains.
Marta Penter is a painter originally hailing from Porto Alegre, Brazil. Penter uses watercolor and oil paints to create her detailed works of art in her new series where she sheds “new light to man and his world, rescuing the feeling of intimacy which has been lost in a globalized and immediate world.” http://martapenter.com.br Posted in: Featured , Fine Art , Illustration & Art , Painting Tags: art blog , canvas , empty kingdom , Fine Art , Marta Penter , oil , Painting , watercolor <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
What is important to you 2011-ongoing It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. After I lost someone I loved very much, I thought about death a lot. This helped clarify my life, the people I want to be with, and the things I want to do, but I struggled to maintain perspective. I wondered if other people felt the same way.
