You could say artist Aganetha Dyck creates her sculptures as much as she fascilitates them. Dyck uses honeybees to decorate these figurines. The bees create graceful lines and countours that seem compliment the existing shapes of the figures. Their honeycomb patterns don’t seem like strange additions but rather enhancements. –BEAUTIFUL DECAY–
Plenty of potential apocalyptic horrors came out of the Cold War, but the atomic cannon is especially unsettling. The giant gun was able to fire a nuclear weapon with a range of 20 miles, detonating at once an entire enemy platoon.
The highly detailed paintings of Valerio Carrubba offer an unexpected combination of styles that strangely complement each other. His scenery and figures seem to emerge from a Renaissance and Baroque tradition. Mysterious hands pull and cut at the flesh revealing each subject’s inner anatomy in a nearly cold way very similar to modern anatomy atlases. The scene as a whole, however, bears the definite influence of surrealism. Carrubba works these various styles and aesthetic sensibilities as skillfully as the oil paint. The boundaries are seamless and carefully worked. VIA: –BEAUTIFUL DECAY–
Stunning images of dragonflies and flies frozen in time as they appear to by crystalised by the morning dew. The tiny droplets of water magnify the dragonflies’ beauty and reveal the details and bright red, orange, green and blue colours of the flying insects.
Macro photography requires a decent light-source – and in this case it is the jewel-like droplets which capture the light so essential for these works of art. VIA: –PRESURFER–
