'Pandora of Weimar' - Pastel drawing by Declan Lee

Pen on paper drawing by CJ Hendry

'I want more life, fucker' by Alec Huxley (2012)
36”x24”, Acrylic on canvas

The looming darkness almost smothers the two figures, but the little light depicted shows a human figure cradling death. This grim, but very familiar, juxtaposition is made most compelling by effective manipulation of light and shadow.

People Who Look Dead But Probably Aren’t’ - A series of found photographs by Patrick Pound (2014)

Recently on display at the Stills Gallery, it shows a continuation of Pound’s projects involving collected vintage photographs. It calls to mind the work of Aby Warburg (Mnemosyne Atlas), and even Marcel Broodthaers (Department of Eagles). This quaint series is an interesting exploration of the manipulation of found objects, and the result is charming if not slightly unsettling.

Drawings by Nuria Riaza
From the series ‘Piedra, Papel, Tijeras’ (2013)

The beautifully rendered children’s faces are juxtaposed by the jagged objects that obscure them. The highlighting and soft detail are gorgeous and compelling, while the vacant or missing faces create a sinister quality.
