A monograph on the beautiful, lush, brightly colored, rich, scientifically precise yet surreal paintings of Tiffany Bozic, inspired by nature and reminiscent of vintage natural history illustrations, is available for purchase from Gingko Press.
Marco Mazzoni‘s new show, River of Milk, is currently exhibiting at Roq La Rue. Bright, startlingly vivid, and poetic, these vibrantly colored pieces are dreamlike and evoke a sense of poignancy, such as the almost stunning emotion and visual impact given off by the vision of the crow-wreathed face in Medusa (below). See the entire show here.
Last but not least, not included in the show, this is an image posted on Marco Mazzoni’s Tumblr page of a stunningly gorgeous triptych entitled The Songwriters (click for larger image):
Aubrey Learner‘s incredibly realistic, detailed drawings are intriguing studies in precision and subtly disturbing grotesqueness. Reminiscent of naturalist illustrations, her imagery combines inorganic elements such as scissors, ribbons, corset lacing, and female undergarments, with insects, leeches, butterflies, snails, and worms. These cryptic, symbolic compositions have the abstruse mystery of installations, and evoke a jarring sense of repulsion and juxtaposition.
Amsterdam-based artist Danny van Ryswyk creates strange, surreal artwork that evokes a sense of eerie melancholy, Victorian portraiture, and monstrous absurdity, using 3D technology.

Tim Lewis‘ Pony is a bizarre and uncanny kinetic sculpture that was exhibited at 2009′s Kinetica Art Fair. Unsettling and uber-realistic, Pony looks somewhat like a surreal ostrich-esque creature composed of human arms, pulling a small one-seater carriage behind itself; motion-sensitive, and appearing to “walk” in a very eerie and delicately articulated fashion, it is another creepy and brilliant intersection of art and science, and a provoking piece of interactive sculpture. Its title also suggests a veiled commentary on the relationship between humans and animals.
Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It brings together galleries, art organisations and curatorial groups from around the world who focus on kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multi-disciplinary new media art, science and technology.
