Disturbing (But Amazing) Pictures Expose The Absurdities Of Modern Culture *Warning: Graphic Images* One of my first thoughts after coming across these illustrations was, “How have I never seen this artist’s work before?”, because they are freaking amazing. Too few artists today have the courage to tackle important social commentaries with their art. But Spanish artist Luis Quiles has undoubtedly broken this mold with his series of illustrations that depict some relevant and unfortunate realities of our world today. Through his art, Quiles challenges a wide range of controversial issues ranging from over-the-counter drug addiction, censorship, and corruption, to sexism, violence, child abuse, and most pertinent of all, our cultural social-media-crazed obsession. There is something raw and hauntingly telling about the commentaries being expressed through each illustration, perhaps in part due to the apparent truth that exists in the messages.

Takach Press- Positive Litho Plates Emerald positive working litho plate's finish is more corse than other plates on the market. They hold more ink and water, and can be imaged over a wide range of exposure times.

The Motions of Kayaking and Canoeing Recorded through Light Painting on Canadian Waterways Kayaking Canoeing Swimming Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando is fascinated with human movement and uses programmable LED light sticks attached to kayak paddles, people, racquets, and other objects to translate that movement into photographic light paintings. The act of recording motion on the surface of water surrounded by reflections creates a surprisingly unique effect, almost sculptural in nature.

Making Art from the War on Terror’s Deadly Paper Trail Rajkamal Kahlon, from ‘Did You Kiss the Dead Body?’ series (2012) (all images courtesy the artist) The response from the art world to the partial release on December 9, 2014 of the Senate Intelligence Committee Report on Torture has so far been scant. Washington Post art and architecture critic Philip Kennicott’s provocative editorial is a rare exception: “Our belief in the national image is astonishingly resilient…” he writes, but “we must learn that the national image is a hollow conceit. What we desperately need is a national conscience.” For the past several years, artists including Rajkamal Kahlon, Jenny Holzer, and Fernando Botero have created major projects centered on US torture, detention, and violence related to the War on Terror.

rajkamalkahon Blowback Blowback is a CIA term, a metaphor for the unintended consequences of covert operations against foreign nations and governments. The project borrows the term to explore the relationship between early anthropological portraiture and modern terrorism. Through these works a relation of causality appears between Western representations of formerly colonized subjects and acts of political retaliation labeled as terrorism today. Turning Eickstadt's Wonder Sense and Sensuality: Art Nouveau 1890-1914 / Exhibitions Sense and Sensuality presents some 65 works drawn from the Arwas Collection, the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau (already in the Sainsbury Centre holdings), and from various other private collections. Following on from the 2012 exhibition, The First Moderns: Art Nouveau, from Nature to Abstraction, which focused on Art Nouveau as the forerunner of international Modern design, this exhibition looks at those Art Nouveau designers who were interested in the darker, more complex side of life. The show embraces the sensuality of Art Nouveau, which at times is risqué, and features a wide range of works from sculpture, graphics, and books to ceramics, glass and furniture.
