James McNabb's City Series is a collection of wood sculptures that represent a woodworker's journey from the suburbs to the city. Each piece depicts the outsider's perspective of the urban landscape. Made entirely of scrap wood, this work is an interpretation of making something out of nothing. Each piece is cut intuitively on a band saw. The result is a collection of architectural forms, each distinctly different from the next.
Seung-Hwan Oh is an experimental photographer and microbiologist working in Seoul, South Korea. In his recent series, Impermanence, "...he cultivates fungus that he applies to his film. Through this process, the microorganisms slowly devour the film...the intended result is what appears through disappearance...". Having worked on this series for over 3 years, Hwan Oh has been able to carefully control the fungus specimens as they eat away at the film, the images are at once magical and frightening, as the deep blues and striking silvers gnaw away and fracture human figures and faces. Within the decay appears a certain sense of majesty as art and science intersect to create some seriously stunning and psychedelic pieces.
"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
