An Art Book Review:  Hold Still by Sally Mann

We’ve followed and cherished Sally Mann’s fine art photography for many years and were shocked to recently discover that she is an incredible author as well. Maybe we are a bit late to the game, but her newest book - Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs, certainly had us holding still, riveted to delicious page after page.

Featured Artist: Dennis McNett

Dennis McNett creates graphic wood carvings which he then hand paints and colors. He has merged the two mediums (sculpture and painting) into one gorgeous outcome – full of texture, dimension and movement. His works range from fine art block prints to contrasty skate decks, with a strong leaning towards wildlife imagery – animals which are loaded with character and energy. With a hint of folk art and rock poster flavor, they are dynamic eye candy to behold!

The Surreal Collages of Rocio Montoya

Rocio Montoya‘s surreal collages have a delicate hand with a clean eye for design – each image plays with perceptions, emotions, transformation and environmental impact. Rocio is a photographer, graphic designer and editor based in Madrid, Spain. Her strongest works are these collages which use her own portrait photography as a base to create “experimental” portraits. The human body in synergy with nature, the female figure and the loss of identity are the conceptual basis of her work.

Design : The New Art of Prosthetic Limbs

Prosthetic limbs have come a long, long way over the last couple of years – creative, wild designs and greatly increased functionality have transformed the look of that old peg leg. From steampunk to glam, bondage leather to carved wood – the designs keep on coming. Using new 3D scanning and printing techniques, these innovations can mirror the bodies natural contours and fit around an existing prosthetic leg.


Featured Artist: Alejandro Quincoces

Foggy, hazy and smoggy, the urban landscapes of Alejandro invite you to get dirty and enjoy the flawed city, before it’s gone for good. Roads and power lines are chicken scratched suggestions, muted colors and abstracted shapes recall places we might have been or will be going.
