IMPRESSIVE WOOD SCULPTURES BY GEHARD DEMETZ
In just a few years, Gehard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying his incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to subjects that are new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting and rendered with an amazing perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical. One of the most startling technical features is the construction using small woodblocks and juxtaposing finely polished parts to very rough and sketchy surfaces.
MAGIC REALISM OF SAUL LANDELL
Mexico, Guadalajara-based photographer Saul Landell (flickr) - “My photography arises out of my personal desires rather than technique and technology. It is almost an artisan’s approach through which I attempt to express my own hallucinations and moments of silence. My photographs don’t offer answers. At best, they attempt to create more questions.”
