Berndnaut Smilde – “Nimbus Green Room’

Real / Unreal

Installations that simulate the effects of alterations and singular atmospheric experiments, which engage environment and nature, enhancing its power and beauty; photographs that tell of remote places and impossible situations; crazy curious objects, that seem like a three-dimensional process in Photoshop.
The virtual feeling we have looking at these images turns into real. Subverting the relationship and the perception that we have with the digital phenomenon, overturning its contents to ‘intangible’ that now becomes tangible appearance.
What we perceive as unreal, in fact here is real. This is Supernature.

Victoria Reynolds - "Meat Painting"
6. Victoria Reynolds – “Meat Painting”
“In my body of work raw flesh is presented in an ostentatious, hedonistic manner. The paintings are meant to be visually sumptuous, voluptuous and sensual. I depict raw flesh for its associations with sensuality, our carnal nature and mortality, sins and pleasures of the flesh, and love of the world.”
