Exploring mind's fears and obsessions

 Jonathan Viner's "Harem" collection explores themes of intimacy and vulnerability, control and voyeurism with its captivating, realistic representations of sensual girls listening to headphones; which, reminding me of John Fowles' s novel The Collector, are altered from independent individuals to vivid artifacts.

The magical world of sheepies and misos

If you're wondering what is Miso's art all about, I will tell you that her imagination is fascinated and stirred by ecocatastrophe, biology and evolution. Her strange creatures, subjects of her paintings, graphite artworks, ink drawings and sculptures, may be considered part of a new species, living here on Earth after an imminent catastrophe.

The new face of reality

Gage Opdenbrouw aims at painting "the exterior world in such a way as to evoke the mysterious richness & vastness of the interior world each of us carries within". Working especially with oil paints, this talented artist gets his inspiration from real life, but after studying and sketching his subjects he focuses on something not entirely visible. Because nothing seems to be what you thought, the second time you give it a glimpse.

Disturbing reality seen by Fred Einaudi

A happy woman carrying a devilish pan full of skulls, a little boy fishing a woman's corps out of the water, a girl analyzing a dead human fetus and many other troubling scenes are the subject of Fred Einaudi's dark paintings.

Magic world, magic paintings

Kelly Vivanco admits she enjoys painting without planning, just letting her imagination run free and see where it takes her. To people who ask what are her artworks about she encourages them to find their own meanings. The artist depicts a late childhood’s fantasy world where animal talk (and wear hats) and young girls are the heroines of great adventures which imply magic wildlife, treasures, fairies, epic tests and a secret reward.
