1. Haze Hawk is a stunning piece by Kay S. Lawrence. Using thread like a 2B pencil, the image of a parrot cleverly fits atop a delicately painted portrait of a young woman. Like a knitted toque, this contemporary art piece challenges our concept of drawing in a very playful way. More, please.
2. Alex Prager is a photographic artist based out of LA. Through still and moving images, Prager explores the realm of storytelling by recreating ‘film-like’ moments that take her heroines on psychologically disturbing journeys. This still from her series titled, ‘Compulsion,’ is as awe-inspiring as it is angst-ridden.
3. Nick Cave. His series titled, ‘Soundsuits,’ I feel speak for themselves. Their oddity and beauty are so strong, you can feel their energy come through a still image.
4. This piece, aptly titled, ’Black holes Inside,’ by Matthew Priestly is all about capturing a moment that purely is defined by the viewer. Is it about letting go or giving in? You decide.
5. This haunting sculpture of a young deer, by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya, is unforgettable. Made of wood and not porcelain, the dream-like, mythical elevated spiritualism, just behind the deers eyes, is transcendent.
