Paul Cocksedge - Auditorium (2012)
"What’s always intrigued me about spider webs isn’t just their beauty and symmetry, but the process itself. The process of weaving, from virtually nothing, that only stops at a moment of fullness, of completion.
Auditorium has given me a chance to work with things that on the surface seem mutually exclusive: open/shut, inside/outside, solid/ transparent. The partition marks the auditorium’s border, but what defines that border is that you can see and hear and even reach through it.”
This reminds me of SquidDust’s installations in the Old Library during Jacksonville’s Art Walk (fall 2008).
Choi Xoo Ang’s Disturbing Sculptures
Choi Xoo Ang, the Seoul born artist and dark master of the imagination, has created sculptures at once hyperrealistic and completely nightmarish, making you feel as if your real life has bled into an inescapable, bad dream.Twisted tongues, stitched backs and floating heads appear throughout Choi’s polymer clay figures, which display remarkable realism despite their fabulous content. Many of the pieces give metaphorical shape to real issues in modern day Korea, including human rights and abuse.

Hillside homes in Nagarkot, Nepal.
I have been to Nagarkot! It is lovely there.
By Silvia Grav, a truly extraordinary set of black & white photographs from the Madrid-based artist, that have such beautiful concepts behind each image. There has been a wave of incredibly talented photographers with a knack for surreal manipulations recently, and these are some of the best I’ve seen.
