Selina Mayer - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Selina Mayer is a UK based photographer who creates eerily intimate black and white images of both the human body and form as well as landscape. They are fashioned in the style of the old photographic masters (think Avedon, Penn, Weston), focusing primarily on the figure; the curves, crevices, shadows, and marks of all humans. Her images capture the delicate balance between sexy and vulnerable. selinamayer.com

‘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

Donate to EMPTY KINGDOM

Most of our faithful fans know that we here at EK do what we do simply for the love of Art. And if you don't know, now you know. We originally started our site to share our love of Art with the world, but it grew quickly from a fun side project to an intense, all-consuming labor of love, and now, we have been blessed with this beautiful baby whose life it is our job to nurture and grow in a positive, impactful way. Our dream is to be a 90/10 company, meaning we donate 90% of our company's net income and keep only 10%. Take a moment to think about how retardedly difficult that sounds. There isn't a businessman in the world who'd invest in a business plan like that.

The Definition of Art - Empty Kingdom - Interview - Website
--- Art: noun \ˈärt\ 1: something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings. --- Can art be defined?  As an abstract concept possibly but on a personal level the definition of art can be as diverse as the viewer.  In that vein we have decided to ask some of our favorite artists to tell us what Art means to them.  Here's what they've said:

Elizabeth Weinberg is an American photographer based out of Los Angeles. Her stunning series, Of Recklessness and Water, is smooth and viscous, a shimmering film that manages to capture that our endless fascination with the sea in all it's stages - from uncanny stillness to raucous, tumbling waves. "The cure for anything is salt water," said Isak Dinesen, "tears, sweat or the sea." Weinberg's collection captures this exactly.

Alexander Gronsky

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.
