Zoe Kimpton – “They and Theirs”

Zoe Kimpton‘s series ‘They and Theirs

They and Theirs is a series of illustrative portraits that depict the subjects as imagined characters. Matched to particular objects they pose within a constructed environment. In a painterly fashion the portraits a styled according to a delicate pastel palette. Surreal elements and a sense of the bizarre blur the edge between fantasy and reality. Quirky aesthetic and subtle humour also come into play throughout the series.

Angel Albarrán Anna Cabrera – The Mouth of Krishna

 

“The series ‘The Mouth of Krishna’ is the story of the infant Krishna, wrongly accused of eating a bit of dirt. His mother, Yashoda, coming up to him with a wagging finger scolds him: “You shouldn’t eat dirt, you naughty boy.” “But I haven’t,” says the unchallenged lord of all and everything, in spot disguised as a frightened human child. “Tut! Tut! Open your mouth,” orders Yashoda. Krishna does as he is told. He opens his mouth and Yashoda gasps. She sees in Krisna’s mouth the whole complete entire timeless universe, all the stars and planets of space and the distance between them, all the lands and seas of the earth and the life in them; she sees all the days of yesterday and all the days of tomorrow; she sees all ideas and all emotions, all pity and all hope, and the three strands of matter; not a pebble, candle, creature, village or galaxy is missing, including herself and every bit of dirt in its truthful place. “My Lord, you can close your mouth,” she says reverently.”

Sandra Kantanen – “Distortion”

Sandra Kantanen‘s series ‘Distortion

“I studied Chinese landscape painting and became obsessed with the idea of trying to understand their way of looking at nature. As I found most of the holy mountains they had been depicting for thousands of years were almost destroyed by pollution or otherwise turned into tourist spots, it became for me a search for a landscape that doesn’t really exist, an idealized picture”

Guido Mocafico – “Movement”

Guido Mocafico‘s series ‘Movement‘ – all the moments in our life are carefully connected, creating an exquisite piece of art.

“In a horological movement, I find poetry meeting technology. The poetry of time elapsing, the change of seasons, astronomical movements, and technology which enables up to eight hundred mechanical pieces inside such a small volume, all working perfectly together, to reach the most accurate time calculation. Each one of these movements takes on a life of its own.”
