Julie Upmeyer on ‘Possibilities of a Pond, an origin story’

> > intention
A pleasant feature I suppose, a novelty.
Relaxing. Reflection. Ripple.
An unknown world beneath the surface.
Liminal. Limitless. Live.

Considering the deceptively simple yet fascinatingly ‘ekphrastic’ Word Art of Louis Camnitzer

Louis Camnitzer is a German-born artist whose family were refuges from the Nazi regime. So, he grew up in Uruguay and lived his formative years against a backdrop of war, violence, revolution, suppression and oppression. This led him to produce political work that deals with control constructs, their authoritarian perversion, and their societal subversion.

A timeless Valentine’s from Gustav Klimt, a moment made eternal…

The Kiss is Austrian artist Gustav Klimt’s most famous painting — a celebration of love and the joyous loss of self in the moment of passion.

Between 1303 and 1305, Giotto di Bondone decorated the interior of this purpose-built chapel with more than fifty scenes showing an extended biography of Christ. It’s unusually comprehensive, starting with Mary’s father Saint Joachim, then the life of Mary, then key…

Stephen Green on ‘Porth Annwn Variations’

I became interested in the idea of a portal to another world, and how it might manifest itself. My drawings were becoming increasingly abstract, allusions to illusions, representing my ideas that had arisen through looking at, drawing, and thinking about, landscapes. From this personal material I put together thoughts and notions on the theme of travelling to Annwn — most importantly, how to get there…
