Lee.K

 

Seoul-based illustrator Lee.K relies on pencil, ink, and charcoal to bring his portraits to life in a flurry of motion. Heavy strokes with the side of a piece of charcoal serve as a backdrop for more detailed features that are brought to life with crosshatching and dynamic flourishes, making every piece feel like it’s full of stored energy.

It’s Pumpkin Decorating Time

Have you carved your jack o’ lanterns already or are you waiting for the weekend? Ours probably won’t be done until a few days before Halloween, and I suspect they’ll be old school with faces. If that’s not your plan – maybe you’re looking for something a little more outside the box – check out these clever ideas for decorating your gourds!

Simone Roscher

 

Simone Roscher‘s Instagram account is full of the Vienna-based photographer’s moody, thought provoking work. While it’s all clearly a reflection of her own depths and emotions there’s something there to be felt by all who view it, no matter the translation.

Unfolded

 

Photographers Daniel Carrillo and Eirik Johnson collaborated on this stunning project. Unfolded uses full and half-plate daguerreotypes to explore the creases of unfolded origami pieces and paper airplanes. The iridescent surface of the daguerreotype plates pick up every facet, giving each two dimensional piece of paper added depth and dimension.

Plant Sticks

 

It’s that time of year where a few plants I’ve brought in from the cold will rebel and give up the ghost – right now all bets are on a potted palm and a snake plant calling it a day. That means I’m paying extra attention to the health of all the others, and trying to prep them for winter as best I can. These solid brass plant sticks are a beautiful way to give them a little extra support where needed. They come as a set of three shapes and heights from 7- to 11-inches.

Samantha Wall

 

Korean-born, Portland-based artist Samantha Wall creates work full of human emotion, all of them. Aggression, weakness, loss, and self-reflection are just a few that she explores through ink and raw talent.

“The expression of emotions provides a doorway into private experiences that reveal our commonality, a smile could indicate pleasure and a frown, sorrow. These communicable emotions reach outward from within, making our bodies transparent. I am interested in the emotions that are more difficult to penetrate and are cloaked even from our own awareness. These are the emotions that sculpt our psyches, erect psychological boundaries, and fill our shadows.”

Emilio Villalba

 

Contemporary portrait painter Emilio Villalba has always been fascinated by the messy parts – emotions, obsessions, and urges. While his works are inspired by the works of the past, the way Villalba pieces elements together to create feels completely modern.

The new visuals are a nod to the modern art aesthetic. Subtle shifts, repetition, (re)placement, or absence of facial features are attempts to create a feeling of dissonance and pressure in the viewer. I want someone to be drawn in by the uncanny nature of a piece and still feel safe to explore the feelings and reactions the pressure gives rise to.
