Stunning pictures. I had to share it here.
Aubrey Hays created the series ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ where she explores our lives taking place in between domesticity and wilderness. Her pictures are shot at sunrise or sunset, when the light wavers in such that a dog on the horizon could perhaps be the lurking shadow of a wolf. Aubrey’s body fits oddly into the surrounding, sometimes she even appears almost invisible, blending with the nature around her. She’s grappling with the uncomfortable, the disquiet, the unknown, she points on our overwhelming need to overcome isolation within these rural spaces. ‘Through the perseverance of remaining within the landscape, sturdiness takes shape as the wolf appears. It is my ever-challenging paradox of intimacy and distance, which draws me to the environment, yet stands in the way of my ever fully anchoring to a place.’

Wow. A 2004 artwork, first shown in Berlin, it has traveled the world since. Watch below the explanations of this masterpiece by Cai Guo-Qiang himself.
He’s also the artist behind the sparkling cars suspended in the atrium of the Guggenheim in 2008.
Cai Guo-Qiang is internationally acclaimed as an artist whose creative transgressions and cultural provocations have literally exploded the accepted parameters of art making in our time. This is especially true of Inopportune: Stage One, Cai’s largest installation to date, which presents nine real cars in a cinematic progression that simulates a car bombing, occupying the central atrium of the Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda.
Merci Étienne !

Une collègue de bureau, Virginie Mercure, termine actuellement sa maîtrise en art visuels. Voici quelques uns de ses tableaux réalisés au cours des dernières années. J’aime particulièrement les zone détaillées, colorées en contraste avec les fonds de sketch géométrique.

An office colleague, Virginie Mercure, is currently completing her master in visual art. Here are a few of her recent paintings. I especially like the detailed areas in a colorful contrast with the sketch geometry backgrounds.
