Jim Lambie's Mesmerising Floorscapes

Posted by Frank Nicholls on


Jim Lambie, Turner Prize nominee 2005, creates vibrant work using easily sourced, modern, household materials and reprocesses their function to re energise them into points of reference in modern culture. His most recognised work ‘Zobop- 1998’ uses vinyl tape to map out the site-specific architectural footprint. The work starts from the perimeter towards the centre of the space, creating an illusion of expansion and movement. Flowing fluorescent stripes draw the viewers eyes down stairs, warping colourful lines against every step aims to provoke a personal resonance between viewer and the site.

Blurring Natures Lines With Andreas Lie

Posted by Frank Nicholls on


Norwegian-born artist Andreas Lie blurs the lines between wild beasts and their habitat by cleverly merging the two to create stunning double-exposure portraits that are to die for.  Whether it be snowy mountain landscapes subtly blended into the coat of a wolf, or the majestic Northern Lights shining through the silhouette of a bear, Lie manages to elegantly capture the essence of the wild and beast by merging the two so they become one. Lie portrays and interesting relationship between the animals and their habitats, reminding us that their existence is interwoven and complex. It is this relationship between animals and their habitats, and our perception as humans of that relationship, which Andreas captures in his art so beautifully.  The beasts and...

Cold Feet by Davide Luciano

Posted by Frank Nicholls on


This photography project by Davide Luciano has to be seen to be believed! He's taken animal feet and placed them into human scenarios, attempting to bring them to life without the use of motion. All the images can be purchased in the form of prints Animals take on human characteristics in this photo series by Davide Luciano.
