Foto Fix: Alma Haser
In her series Cosmic Surgery, UK artist Alma Haser uses origami as integral props and elements in her final imagery. Haser photographs her sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects’ face and folds them into a complicated origami construction, which is then placed back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally, the whole scene is re-photographed. The fantastic outcome is a surreal modular twist on anatomy with startling and simple beauty.

Interior Design: Atomic Fixtures
When we spotted these cool rocket faucets which time travel back to 1950′s spaceships or airplanes, we had to dig further. Made by Lefroy Brooks, (the ones pictured above and below) – are from their 1950 Belle Aire series. Sweet n’ sleek, atomic powered design.
Featured Artist: Pam Hawkes
The rich portraits of Pam Hawkes are decadent testaments to old styles and modern-day beauty. She creates a beautiful marriage of Renaissance style with contemporary subjects.
The madness of Michael Tunk is wonderful collage, with twisted elements of fun, sarcasm and healthy doses of Dada thrown in. Using vintage, found materials mixed with current imagery he manages to skew normal perception into a freshly bizarre and unique take.
Tom Haney’s little people are articulated doll sculptures which Eclectix happened upon at Red Truck Gallery. Inspirations of folk / Victorian / outsider art – they engaged and enthralled us. Some of the sculpted figures are set in antique theater inspired dioramas and some stand alone. These are works that really need to be appreciated in person, their 3D liveliness beguiles you with charm.
