​Seung-Hwan OH

Foto Fix: Seung-Hwan OH

​Mixing science and art is one of our favorite combinations and apparently it is photographer Seung-Hwan OH’s passion as well. He combines common bacteria and microbes with water and soaks his film, letting the decomposition begin… or rather, as in his case, the final composition begin. After the image is “destroyed” to his satisfaction, which may take months, he finally scans it before it is completely disintegrated. This series he has appropriately titled Impermanence.

Travis Bedel - Eclectix

Travis hails from Phoenix, Arizona and hasn’t had any formal art training yet his collages speak volumes in skill and imagination. His source images come from vintage medical and science books, available in the public domain. With obvious skill at cutting detailed and intricate pieces, his eye for the overall composition and it’s flowing unity is perfection.

Hieronymus Bosch Complete Works by Stefan Fischer

Taschen has recently published a wonderful huge volume of the complete works of Hieronymus Bosch. One of our standard Eclectix questions we ask artists when we interview them is -“If you could own one piece of art, out of the world’s collections, what would it be?” And a vast majority of artists always reply - Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights. So we knew we had to share this sumptuous new release from Taschen with all his fans… feast your eyes on the father of surrealism!

Julia Fullerton-Batten profile

Fine-art photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten is well-known for her use of unusual locations, creative settings and cinematic lighting. But the meat of Julia’s matter is in her strong vision and message. Highly imaginative and complex narratives compose her portfolios which are often centered around a specific theme. The human condition and chords if its discontent are elegantly represented – societal outcasts, sexuality and gender identity, conformity, nationalism, lost love, misogyny, loneliness, class struggle, psychological turmoil, sexism and isolation.

Hang Nga Crazy House

Artitechture: The Hang Nga Crazy House in Vietnam

The imaginative brainchild of owner Mrs. Dang Viet Nga, the Crazy House has been an evolving work in progress since 1990. The building is a veritable Alice In Wonderland acid trip through an Asian jungle. The exterior resembles five-story-high banyan tree, with uneven window openings and branch-like structures that “grow” along its walls and rise above the roof into the sky, with twisting organic forms and very few right angles.

Bruno Walpoth

Italian woodworker and artist, Bruno Walpoth carves incredibly lifelike figurative sculptures which stand quietly, as solitary souls in between stages of life and purpose. Vulnerable, unsure and pensive – they seem like newborn adults, brought to life by the hand of the artisan.
