happy halloween.

Haunting pictures of abandoned theatres by photographer Julia Solis. Elegant and evocative, they also provoke thought of contemporary issues of urban decay and economic downturn.

Subtle, geometric, beautiful. These still-life vignettes by Jan Hardisty are a new series of limited edition, digital inkjet prints with the same modernist, unmistakably Danish touch by the artist (more of his works, here). Happy weekend.

corners.

I love these images taken by Paul Raeside, capturing glimpses of beautifully styled corners in this pared-back Parisian interior. Off-white and shades of grey provide the back-drop to the wonderfully light interior; window treatments are simple lengths of sheer (very on-trend for 2014, says the Wall Street Journal). It is the objects and their placement that provide the detail and texture.

Allusion and ambiguity beguile in these fantastical portrayals of modernity by the impressively monikered Geebird and Bamby. With echoes of  Julius Shulman, Alfred Hitchcock, Ed Ruscha and others they appear familiar and yet surreal at the same time.

happy weekend.

Just back from a few days final foray to south wales before the leaves turn for another year…

Playing with dimension and scale, these staged still lifes are decidedly modernist, referencing the works of Miro and Picasso, for example. Composition, form and lighting all come into play and everyday, recognisable objects become players within a stage set.
