Using vintage postcards Italian artist Caterina Rossato creates 3-D assemblages with X-Acto knifes by cutting up layers of cards and reassembling them.

Speaking about her work the artist says: “I create landscapes made through a collage of other landscapes, combining images in which the sense of recognition of reality slips from one level to another and it is never clearly identified.”

Complete Silence

Italian born, Berlin based painter Dario Puggioni creates portraits of subjects who exist, as he states, in a world of complete silence. It is a strange world where plants grow from the top of heads and scars have healed but still remain.

Painter Jean-Pierre Roy wrestles with his personal demons with these stunning paintings that are as ambitious as they are utterly ambiguous.

Ben Hopper is a London-based photographer,and filmmaker who has created the series entitled ‘Transfiguration’ where he uses circus artists and dancers as models. Using paint and powders Hopper hopes to create something new and abstract using the human form.

He states: “Like a mask, the layers of body paint and powder disguise the identity and release something animalistic from within.” You can see more of his work on his Blog, where he is also selling some prints.

Trippy GIFs

More trippy work from filmmaker, GIF maker and stereoscopist Bill Domonkos.

I view my work as a collision and recombination of ideas. My process unfolds gradually and spontaneously—using found materials such as archive film footage, photographs, and the internet. I experiment by combining, altering, editing and reassembling using digital technology, special effects and animation to create a new kind of experience. I am interested in the poetics of time and space—to renew and transform materials, experiences and ideas. The extraordinary thing about cinema is its ability to suggest the ineffable—it is this elusive, dreamlike quality that informs my work.
