Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013

Their presence in the modern world affords an intimate human link to the mysterious past, as well as the ability to look upon their features and see parts of ourselves in their reposed expressions. From the leathery surface of the skin to the most delicate stroke of a still extant eyelash, Hines portrays these cherished archeological relics as individual people, each projecting a unique spirit and prevailing vitality never lost through the ages.

Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013
Massachusetts-based artist Danny Quirk specializes in photo realistic watercolors of anatomical structures, painting what cameras cannot capture with quite as much precision and delicacy as the artist's hand. Quirk's work combines classic poses in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting with a contemporary twist, creating portraits of self-discovery through dissection. This intimate uncovering of the structures that lay beneath the skin mirrors humanity's quest for self-understanding, whether in an emotional, spiritual, or physical sense. 

Stardust by Sergio Albiac

Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013
Sergio Albiac is a visual artist based in Barcelona, Spain, whose process of production involves writing computer programs to generate complex images of beauty and emotion. In his latest artist foray into "generative portraiture," Albiac employs the concept of nucleosynthesis, essentially the cosmic creation of stardust, to compose automated collage portraits that source photographs from The Hubble Space Telescope. The resulting images are not only universally appealling as works of abstracted beauty, but also representative of our place in the cosmos as material beings essentially made of star stuff.

Lin Xue's Organic Meditations

Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013
It's a true visual feast to study the fine lines and curving shapes of  Hong Kong-based artist Lin Xue's intricate and contemplative work. Intuitively created after long sojourns into the mountains of China, Xue's tools of choice reflect the raw, elemental contents of his drawings; sharpened shards of bamboo dipped in pools of ink depict the most basic structures of life in a thriving ecosystem, interpreted on paper through a dreamlike veil of almost otherworldly beauty. The self-taught artist has always been drawn to the "orchestral energy" of the natural world, attempting to recreate its resonating vibrations through the meditative process of his art.
