Art Blog - Alexander Gronsky - Empty Kingdom
Alexander Gronsky explores the fine line between the urban and rural. Working in Eastern Europe and Russia, he documents what appears to be crumbling infrastructures, seemingly desolate and abandoned, though peaking lights and small bodies indicate otherwise. Unkept suburbs with graffiti and litter are strewn with people seeking leisure and relief in wooded patches and corners of beaches with looming industrial structures and cityscapes not far behind. His composition and color palette are refined and lend to the unusual serenity these images evoke. Urban decay is real.

Their work narrows in on the relationship between Humans and the Environment which surrounds them. Pillaged landscapes scarred by human excess are portrayed in ParkeHarrisons photogravure, collaged and printed works. The realisticy unreal photographs are brilliant interpretations of how human behavior has a direct effect on the environment.

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

by

January 31, 2014

TOP 100 2013
[Photo by: Shelbie Dimond] 939 is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939 only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939 back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939 in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore. According to HistoryOrb.com, 4 major events took place in year 939 that were documented: July 8th (The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi), August 6th (Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors), October 2nd (Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans), October 27th (Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England)...which all has nothing to do with EK. Nonetheless, 939 is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013!

"Photography is a medium that is famous for freezing time," says photographer Fong Qi Wei. In Wei's newest series, "Time is a Dimension", he takes a number of photographs during a span of 2-4 hours (primarily during sunrises and sunsets) at a specific location, and then constructs a single composite image using different "slices of time" for the individual photographs. The results are pretty dope.
