With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21 st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.

Last week, Alice told us about Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno's interactive installation called Cloud Cities . The display consists of twenty clear orbs of varying sizes being suspended at different heights. Within each orb is a different organic material like water or plant life. New photos have emerged which show its real appeal - viewers can interact with all of the bubbles! Whether you choose to climb on top or go inside, there are ladders available to guide spectators to a globe of fun.
Paul Cadden es un dibujante escocés cuya técnica con el grafito es tal que dificilmente creerás que son dibujos y no fotografías. Los dibujos hiperrealistas de Paul Cadden, tienen la intención de cuestionar la mediatización de la realidad de acuerdo a agendas corporativas y gubernamentales. De acuerdo con este talentoso escocés, la tergiversación permanente de la “realidad” por parte de los medios, favorece intereses particulares y condiciona la forma de ver las cosas.
(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.

Few months ago, way back in March, I showed you some incredible works by #Alexa Meade (whenever you see # in front of a word, it means it’s a tag linked to related stuff). Many of you couldn’t believe that her paintings were actually real life people , body-painted in such a way to look as an acrylic masterpiece . The illusion works best when you see the installation up-close.

first image tell no one is the collaborative name of london based filmmakers luke white and remi weeke. the two recently began to blog their creative process, showing the behind the scenes of the video experiments including seaweed. this short video consists of a single person, slowly moving around the frame, leaving aspects of the body in place as they continue to move. the layers of video slowly accumulate and sway in motion together, creating an effect which aims to mimics seaweed. while the images of this video demonstrate the effect, seeing it in motion is a must. http://tellnoone.co.uk <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
