    Artist Seung-Hwan Oh and his paintings

    The visual result of the symbiosis between film matter and organic matter is the conceptual origin of this body of work.

    The process involves the cultivation of emulsion consuming microbes on a visual environment created through portraits and a physical environment composed of developed film immersed in water. As the microbes consume light-sensitive chemical over the course of months, the silver halides destabilize, obfuscating the legibility of foreground, background, and scale.

    Wooden Sculptures Express Vulnerability Through Holes by Paul Kaptein

    Australian-based artist Paul Kaptein explores the notion of “now” in his wooden sculptures. While beautifully crafted, each piece has something strange about it. Notches and rectangular holes are cut into the figures and show that there’s emptiness to his subjects. His work is metaphor for the present and the uncertainty that goes with it.

    Sensational recycled clothing art byGuerra de La Paz

    guerra de la paz is the collective name for artists alain guerra and neraldo de la paz, two cuban
    artists living in miami. the two create sculptural works and photographs which run the gamut from
    textile assemblages to action figure portraits. their textile work is all made from unwanted clothing
    that is assembled into abstract colour and form based works as well as literal forms such as
    people and landscapes. from these discarded pieces they create vivid pieces which explore
    material culture in contemporary society. other works include the g.i. joe portraits which recreate
    iconic works of art such as the pieta and the last supper.
