Etching, Lake Superior, Wisconsin, 2009 by Lisa M. Robinson

“On the surface, these images are quite beautiful. They appear elegantly simple and accessible, evoking, perhaps, the silent tranquility that one might feel after a fresh snowfall. Beneath the surface, however, there is a subtle tension. Like fine haiku, each image quietly references another season, a time of life or activity that has already passed, and may come again. ” Lisa M. Robinson on her Snowbound series

“I coat an animal’s corpse in porcelain until it’s completely covered. Then it is carefully placed inside the kiln to be fired. All organic material is burned up leaving behind a fine skin of porcelain. The dead animal’s body vanishes in the fire, being reborn in a lasting image. The whole process resembles a burial ceremony.” source

Waterfall in Ice by Alistair Knock

“Why is this ice so blue? Glacier ice, especially when it is thick, becomes compressed and all the air bubbles in it are expelled. Air bubbles is what makes ordinary ice white by reflecting all the colours in daylight. When there are no air bubbles, the red and the yellows of the spectrum are absorbed and the blues and greens are reflected making those the colours that we see.” source

“The sculpture exists as an elegant escape from the turbulent drawn world. They have stepped out of the 2d space, resulting in deceptively simple molecular constructions of carbon, our building block of life and the graphite used to draw.” Alison Moffett

“The photographs I create depict fantasy installations in grandiose exhibition spaces. The works are produced by first building scale models of exhibition spaces, and creating within the spaces original artworks in drawing, painting and sculpture mediums. These installations are then photographed with a large format camera to create the final works.” David DiMichele
