Photographer and painter Santiago Betancur Z explores the intersection between science and abstract art in his photographic studies of bubbles, as well as producing life-size figure painting. In his photographs and video recordings, Betancur Z captures imagery of soap bubbles against dark backgrounds, showcasing the random kaleidoscopic color and light effects produced by the delicate spheres, and the chance allusions that occur in their surfaces
Featured Curator of the Week:Philip Intile [pi-slices]
Tyler Haywood aka angulargeometry currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He has been obsessed with creating art since he took a clay sculpture class when he was four years old. Tyler likes to make as much work as he can instead of filtering ideas and cornering himself in. Tyler began a weekly blog where he posted mainly still images and poster designs, but after being inspired by Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple’s daily work, he began creating and posting his work daily. He has been creating daily GIFs more more than 430 days and shows no signs of slowing down.
The story of a great flood occurs in the mythology of many races. The Greek version (Met. 1:348-415) tells of Deucalion, son of Prometheus, who, like Noah, escaped the destruction that overtook the rest of mankind by building an ark in which he floated for nine days with his wife Pyrrha. After the waters had subsided they were advised by an oracle to veil their heads and ‘throw the bones of your great mother behind you’, which they took to mean the rocks of Mother Earth. They did as they were bid, the rocks which Deucalion threw turning into men and Pyrrha’s into women. Thus a new human race was created.
In the painting Pyrrha and Deucalion are shown in the act of casting the rocks. On the ground rocks change into men and women who scramble to their feet.
