Future Memories Catherine Nelson
The ‘Future Memories’ series comprises of 20 floating worlds, meticulously composed with thousands of assembled details. Visual poetry, nature photography and digital techniques blend together to give shape to these transcendental landscapes. The result is a contemporary pictorial mythology that subtly reminds the viewer of a profound truth: that it is in the flourishing variety of the local that the fate of the world resides.
Amazing paintings that defies tradition. Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata fuses his paintings with his color-perfect sculptures. These compositions make for quite the compelling installation. At first glance, these painting seem perfectly great, but take a step back and watch the visual presentation as the sculpture compliments the work itself. The first piece is just lovely, the sunset backdrop that corresponds with the yellow, orange gradient works flawlessly against the subject and cat. The second piece is my favorite, the cascading blue, violet markings makes for an interesting element in the piece. It sets a perfect mood for the girl and her food. The third piece is just as remarkable as well, the brown and light green creates the illusion of fall. I love all of these workings, be sure to check out more of Shintaro’s work after the jump.
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama - who has notably lived in a psychiatric institution for the last four decades - has been obsessed with dots and infinity for her entire career, an inspiration she attributes directly to her hallucinations. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations that immerse the viewer in her obsessive vision of dots or infinitely mirrored space.
