Manika Nagare

Well up

Manika Nagare è nata ad Osaka nel 1975 e attualmente  vive e lavora a Tokyo. Ha un particolare interesse per i paesaggi della regione di Tohoku nel nord del giappone. In verità mi stò ancora chiedendo cosa mi interessa in questi lavori educati e visionari…forse uno spazio impersonale di qualità ed eleganza che semplicemente vibra attraverso il colore…gentilezza! ❤

“For many years, observing strangers around her has been an impetus for Manika Nagare’s work.She fixes her eyes on both the visible and invisible, the shapely and shapeless characteristics of a person, filtered through her imagination. Her new works, produced between 2013 and 2014 and featured in “Line of Sight,” adopt the same attitude towards landscapes – particularly of Tohoku, a northeastern region of Japan – as her new interest. Manika Nagare was born in Osaka in 1975 and currently lives and works in Tokyo.” {via http://miyakoyoshinaga.com/artists/Manika_Nagare}

Lev Khesin

xx

Lev Khesin è un artista russo che da anni vive e lavora a Berlino. Di base nei suoi lavori usa il silicone, lo colora e sintetizza in “materia  prima” la velatura. In altri lavori troviamo una massa robusta che ricorda il mondo dei giocattoli in un fondersi cromatico di grande impatto.

Una”questione” diretta che non filtra il propio lavoro con noiosi ” intellettualismi artistici”.

I love it! ❤

Snowstorm Mask

The Snowstorm Mask, a plastic cone shield designed to protect Montrealer’s delicate faces from the ravages of icy Quebec snowstorms – developed in 1939. Apparently one of History’s strangest inventions.
