Ellen Heck – Forty Fridas

Thursday, February 6, 2014

Ellen Heck’s series Forty Fridas is a reminder of just how icon Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits are! These girls and women sitting as Frida each nail a look, a pose; in short some of Frida’s magic.

Artist Crush: Christine Ödlund

Monday, February 3, 2014

Stockholm artist Christine Ödlund explores unknown phenomena of the natural world. Beautiful vertiginous landscapes are more than meets the eye, illustrating fictitious sound waves conceived by the artist.

“Ödlund has… explored and embodied phenomena and worlds that humans, with our limited senses, scarcely can perceive… Through meditation she places herself in a condition she refers to as simulated synaesthesia, in which sensory impressions flow freely; scientific data or audio translates into colours, music transforms into shapes or motions, images become sensations of taste. Aligned with this interdisciplinary thinking Ödlund has followed researchers in organic chemistry at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm in their attempts to decipher the chemical language of plants.” – Galleri Riis
