Theatrical Hunting by Alice LaComte
Eve / Kali Giving Birth to the Universe by Chitra Merchant
Much of Chitra’s work draws on her Indian upbringing. This is reflected in her use of colour as metaphor to examine the relationships between people and landscape. Her prints also seek to examine the roles and expectations that are ascribed to women in India and the rest of the world. [ftp]
Threaded vintage portraits by Happy Red Fish
“Happy red fish” is a creative studio operated by the artist and designer Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen based in Amsterdam ,The Netherlands. We particularly love this one collection of vintage portraits combined together with colorful threaded lines on faces. After several days we promise to publish more Happy Red Fish’s artworks here!
You are the daughter of the sea…
Naiad: cut your body into turquoise pieces,
they will bloom resurrected in the kitchen.
This is how you become everything that lives.
And so at last, you sleep, in the circle of my arms
that push back the shadows so that you can rest—
vegetables, seaweed, herbs: the foam of your dreams.
Pablo Neruda, from Sonnet XXXIV
Photography: Genèse by Lucien Clergue, 1973
