Combining art and nature, Spanish artist Lorenzo Manuel Duran uses a scalpel to create intricately designed silhouettes from leaves around his home. The very fine details that he has achieved here on the finished pieces are impressive to say the least, with miniscule segments and extremely thin lines crafted by the vital combination of technique and surgical blades.
Myung Keun Koh is an artist who creates “photo-sculptures”…wha?! Yes, photo-sculptures.

Koh’s work is a very unique exploration of spaces, structures, and environments all confined within a singular form creating wonderful and stunning visual pieces.

Kristine Moran’s recent painting practice involves extracting marks and gestures from past work and assigning them specific meaning. The symbolic forms are then placed within the context of a pictorial archive with the intent of arriving at concrete visual vocabulary.

When placed together, images form full sentences creating a narrative dialogue from painting to painting.

Sculpture, photography, drawing, video and performance are used independently as well as together to create installations where interaction and exploration are essential. With his work, Javier Pérez reveals his inquiries and reflections on mankind, using a language full of intense metaphor and imbued with a strong symbolism. His works contain an intrinsic dialectic, showing how weak can be the boundary between concepts seemingly opposite such as the natural and the cultural, the inside and the outside or life and death.
Jim Dingilian's incredible bottle art is much more complex than the traditional building of ships inside of bottles. The detailed scenes trapped inside recycled glass bottles are made with just candle smoke. The artist burns the inside, then carefully etches away the residue, revealing imagery of trees, cars, and industrial landscapes within the confines of each bottle.
Eduardo Mata Icaza mixes realistic, anatomical images of the human body with abstract shapes lines, and movement. Combined with either bleak or highly contrasting color schemes his paintings are quite remarkable.
