‘Realm’ by Carolyn Lefley

Carolyn Lefley - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"I am interested in the relationship between literary fiction and fantasy stories and the inherent make-believe qualities of a photograph. Photographs are windows to another world and as such have a magical quality to them. In my new work Realm I have created digitally altered photographs, where the familiar place of the home becomes a portal into mythical realm." -Carolyn Lefley, Photographer, London

Margriet Smulders - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Margriet Smulders' intoxicating and smouldering flowers represent contradictions between the mind and the body, between science and intuítion, between dark and light, nirwana and  samsara, modesty and voluptousness maybe all brought together by the heart. Her photographs are exposed to particular canvases such as metallic, Cibachrome, as well as water color paper, which give off the reflected illuminated look of a painting. Be sure to check out Margriet's previous feature from January 2013.

Dirk Braeckman - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
When we see photographs by the Belgian artist Dirk Braeckman installed in museums, we seem to be looking at photographs that aspire to the condition of painting. They are large — he likes them to be life-size. They are unglazed— he wants no interruption to the eye. They demand as slow an act of looking as any painting. They have the same richness and variety of tones of grey as works by Richter or Celmins.

Yung Cheng Lin - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
The elusive fine art photographer Yung Cheng Lin is Tainan, Taiwan based. His deliberately placed subjects and their unhinged poses leave you questioning what mysterious scenario is being played out. All his photos give you the sense that they are scenes from an abstract horror film. That's what I love the most about his photos. They don't seem to relate to each other, but once you look through them a story starts to emerge.

John Stezaker - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
London based artist John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and contexts of the original images to convey his own witty and poignant meanings.

Melanie Bonajo - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
“When I was a child, I was very restless and never wanted to sleep. To have a little rest my parents would tie me to the bed, but I was able to escape running around with a mattress and half the bed tied to me…As an adult my life goal is all about preserving my stuff, bringing it from A to B and back again and dropping some of the things in C in between. If I look at the objects maintaining my life as a condensation of material energy, I often wonder how long I could live free and happy from the gain I get out of that pure energy…I don’t actually own so much stuff, but often I dream of burning everything I have.” -Melanie Bonajo, Amsterdam
