• Marianna Rothen // Shadows in Paradise

    A red dress is lying like a carcass on the lawn. Shoes abandoned next to it; the chair tipped up. A discarded blonde wig no longer means anything – no longer screams siren or bombshell or sex; only emptiness. And the question of what happened here. If the women in Marianna Rothen’s earlier series (Snow […]

The Work Magazine – Collaboration Issue

 

What’s my age anyway? / A nod to eternal youth with Mary Benson

Would life be better if fashion was one big party? Mary Benson would seem to think so. The young designer’s latest offering led us away from the runway, down the dimly-lit stairs to the 100 Club, where just minutes from the more traditional fashion week venue, 90s tunes met thoroughly up-to-date creativity in an explosion […]

Workaholic // Milly Dent

The abstract patterns of Milly Dent’s porcelain objects coil in the mind like they coil round the clay they decorate.

Contemporary Fine Artist // Nouel Riel – Interview and First SOLO show

Nouel Reil’s multilayer, mixed media pieces in her first solo show , A New Mythos, are layered not only in texture and color but in content and meaning.  Stemming from the uprooting that comes along with taking perspective of one’s own life and how we have become who we are, she takes on personas that […]

At first glance his work is a reproduction: a painstaking recreation of works that have defined the canon of art history and the visual culture of today. But look closer and and a wealth of […]

Living across continents is a hazy state of mind // By Elena Ellen

Living across continents is a hazy state of mind. In London I wake up and it’s dark. The sun cuts soft across an outstretched landscape of roofs and tall, packed houses, being slowly transformed into day. The stereotypes are wrong: that first heady dose of sunlight is not blue, it’s green. A fresh wash of colour that’s […]
