‘Sahasrara’, in Sanskrit ‘Thousand Petals, is truly the right name for this magical oil painting by @jonchingart. What a beautiful creature, a hybrid of flora and fauna! Jon Ching shares that this “piece is ‘Sahasrara’, another pollinator flauna creature here to blossom the world. They’re a divine creature whose presence indicates a thriving habitat and abundance of life. Made of all native California white flowers, they’re also a tribute to my adopted state.”
“A late-night walk to clear the mind. The neighborhood is settling to sleep as a misty blanket drapes over it. Lost in thought – it takes several paces to realize what was just seen tucked between the houses.”
I can relate so much with this narration, don’t you as well? @nicholasmoegly captures the feelings on our night walks so accurately. The artist’s attention to detail to create this momentum is so captivating: The lights, the mist covering the tree, the silence - hauntingly mysterious and comforting at the same time.
This photo is everything! Photographer, model, and gardener @anhwisle is a truly versatile artist who summons beauty and energy in different forms and shapes. This might be one of my favorite self-portraits: The tattoos, the posture, the background - iconic!
Dare to look into these eyes, and you might get lost on the dark side!
@rebeccajolesley creates stunning mixed media portraits like this beautiful, bizarre ‘Diablo’. Rebecca shares in an interview with @marvelousartgallery: “I started painting portraits in 2016 following the death of a loved one, since then my style has developed towards figurative surrealism. (...) I often produce work as a series, playfully mixing women’s themes with allegory, religious iconography, and pop culture references to create hyper-feminine pieces that are occasionally tongue-in-cheek.”

@glenmartintaylor creates conceptual sculptures with everyday objects, traces that give us a lot of space to think about love, life, and human existence. The sculptures turn into hints that initiate contemplation and deep meanings: ‘Heart of Knives’ is a perfect example that showcases this potential, and I am sure all of you can relate in one way or the other!

"I think everything in life can become an inspiration if it means something to you. It can be as small as the colour of the leaves starting to change outside your window or an unforgettable childhood memory." - Tina Yu.
👼 Can you see the infant apparition in eternal slumber? (See image #4 for the complete floral beaded resplendence of this artwork.)
Allow us to explain what set the wheels in motion for Rebecca Reeves’ (@timberchouse) fascination with loss, death, and the manifestation of respectfully represented macabre-themed art work.
Have you ever wished that someone would permanently disappear? When Rebecca was nine years old, the thought crossed her mind...💭
🤔What if I no longer have to receive piano lessons - which I hate! - from my cranky, disapproving, meany-pants grandfather❓ Maybe my life would be so much better if he'd just GO AWAY.
One day, her grandfather unexpectedly died. Imagine what that event - that particular granted wish - might do to the mind of a nine year old.
"It was a life-changing experience," she says, "because I wished him away." Consequently, the artist says that her "fascination with death and the need to control the uncontrollable has altered my life and given me comfort."
🖤Take a gander at some of the brand new pieces that the mixed media artist created for her upcoming solo show LOST/LOSS, which is opening on December 3rd ... just swipe right!
