Jacob Ring

by Xavier Speeleveld

Jacob Ring (b.1987, Auckland, New Zealand) creates experimental photographic works. Considering scenes that are unmonumental in occurrence, the works become vast in referential impact. Much of his work is concerned with portraying multiple layers of reality, and an image is often built through repeated experiments in process, rather than captured. Ring is a chromesthete, affected by the sound to vision variety of the neurological condition synaesthesia. Visualising sound as colour and imagery is a trait that constantly influences his practice at a core level. Jacob currently lives and works in Sydney.

Marl Wagner

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

Using myriad fragments of legitimate monetary bills, american artist Mark Wagner intricately crafts collages that speak to the cultural, economic, and political roles that currently play in contemporary society. aAblade and glue are the artist’s primary tools, as he cuts and tears away morsels of U.S. Paper dollars and reorganizes them into complex and ornate visuals. Materializing portraits, landscapes, and historical scenes, wagner transforms the icon of capitalism into representational snapshots, from the story of the founding fathers, to mythological tales.

Wang Ying

by Xavier Speeleveld

I spotted this dreamy fashion editorial in the current issue of Harper’s Bazaar China called “Dream of the Dress”. I love the surreal, fairytale-seque feel of these images – the clothes, the set, the hair & make up all work perfectly together to create a little parallel reality that equally appeals to both my “grown up” self and the “big kid” that’s still very much inside.

Beautiful styling by Wang Ying. Photography by Shxpir.

Avian architecture

by Xavier Speeleveld

Using mixed materials like plumage, hair, gold, and paint, new zealand artist Karley Feaver creates exotic creatures and nests with a strangely familiar and surreal aesthetic. transforming found birds — all of which are ethically sourced and have died of natural causes — from stagnant figures to sculptural objects, the reconfigured animals are fitted with extravagant hairdos. ponytails, mohawks, dreadlocks, and braids are styled onto the colorful fowl, some with shining gold-painted beaks, granting each a personality, identity, and singular charm. habitats fashioned from both human and synthetic hair weave new interpretations of traditional nestings, modeling a novel type of avian architecture.

Her artworks are based on 3D elements and photographs. They go through a heavy process of transformation, assemblage and detail that puts them closer to a pictorial expression.Her images are reflections of a human life that wanders between ordinary events and a subconscious world where nature and bodies talk through complex disguises.
