Jamie Bates Slone: Phenotypes, 2014

I have developed a process utilizing my knowledge of various casting methods and glaze, chemistry to create forms made entirely glaze. The color and texture is appealing and repulsive at the same time. When viewed through a magnifying glass the surface resembles Scanning Electron Micrographs of cancer cells.

"De-Compositions" represents an inquiry into the process of decay in the natural world.  Unlike our society, in which human beings indefatigably attempt to slow or reverse the process of decay, nature undergoes decomposition willingly and gracefully.  This series reveals death as a beautiful and essential process for the continuation and renewal of life.

I am a photographer living in Deerfield, Massachusetts interested in intersections between nature and the human life cycle.

Featured in the new book Afritecture: Building Social Change, this A-frame, timber-construction floating school was designed by Amsterdam- and Lagos-based studio NLÉ. It is shown anchored in the watery Makoko community of Lagos, Nigeria, a sprawling, Venice-like settlement on Lagos’s lagoon.
Afritecture Explores Africa’s Often Overlooked Architectural Landscape
Despite being the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent, Africa remains an outsider in the realm of architectural study, frequently passed over for other far-flung reaches (Asia and, recently, Oceania) or for the more familiar territory of Western Europe and North America. Enter Afritecture: Building Social Change (Hatje Cantz, $50)…

A look at photos from “Barbarous Coasts,” an exhibition depicting two disparate locations—Alaska’s Upper Cook Inlet and the shores of Hofsos, Iceland—that, together, form a cohesive view of the animated and craggy life at sea: http://nyr.kr/1mwJH8g
Above: “Rock #2” (2013). Photograph by Neal Rantoul.

Neal Rantoul’s work is understated mastery. His formal clarity, tone and texture always convey land and human with both attention and immediacy. Arts & Ideas has had the honor of publishing his photographs and enjoys a warm friendship.

COLORIZATION TUTORIAL BY DEMETRIASLOVATO
Hello everyone! a very nice anon asked me if I had a tutorial on how to make a colorization. A few friends also wanted me to explain it to them, so I thought it was a good idea to finally make one.
