Rising contemporary art star, Niclas Castello, is redefining the relationship between painting and sculpture with his “Cube Paintings”. In these works, the artist destroys his completed artworks and uses the detritus to make new artworks. The process transforms his paintings into uncanny new sculptures.

Linard Osorio’s paintings on polycarbonate seem precise enough that they resemble digital intervention while maintaining a minimalist painterly quality. The colors that appear to emerge and hide from the magenta monochrome are hypnotic to the eye and bring into question both the architecture of the work and its materials.

In this stunning mixed media-artwork, Indian-American artist Brinda Pamulapati pays homage to her heritage by incorporating fabric from the traditional saree and encapsulating it with rich, textured brushstrokes of red acrylic paint. The intricate textures of the saree fabric are married with the textures made by the paint creating a visually pleasing experience.

Brooke Holm is an Australian-American photographer who elevates landscape, architecture, and conceptual still life in her work. As a lover of nature, and specifically mountainous landscape, I find this monochromatic depiction of a quiet fjord especially beautiful.

The prefix “Un”, which appears continuously in the oeuvre of West Bengal-born conceptual artist Mithu Sen, does not suggest negation or “undoing” for the artist, but rather opens the possibility of different levels of perception and experience. Just as the artist does not limit herself to one genre, she does not define her multilayered paintings, installations, performances, or poems as completed. By “un-ing” her art, as she describes it, Mithu Sen constantly deconstructs a given context or convention, and one once again discovers a new level of meaning and is either amused or challenged by it.

Barbie goes to outer space! Never thought marble and yellow plexiglass could look so good together. This half-dog abomination is truly captivating. Turkish artist, Mehmet Sinan Kuran is a mad genius with her mixed media installation and sculpture work. See more on Anna Laudel’s Artnet gallery site!

This photograph resonated with me during this quarantine season, because—upon reflection—it exemplifies the choice we all face. One can let anxiety and isolation run them down, just as this ancient building has become a ruin through the march time. Alternatively, one can see this moment as an opportunity for continual growth reaching towards higher goals, just as this tree has defied its circumstances to become an awe-inspiring testament to nature. This Neo-Romantic platinum-palladium print reminds me that mindset is everything.

I have always loved the work of British artist David Shrigley because of his very special sense of humor. He is a great observer of everyday situations and relationships and comments on them in a satirical manner. Here, he shows the relationship between the dog and its owner, which can be very strong and emotional.
