The Image That Is Currently In The Forefront Of My Mind

The image that is currently in the forefront of my mind is by 23 Envelope (partnership of Vaughan Oliver and Nigel Grierson,  to whom we owe the graphic cut of most  exits of label 4AD).

The image that changed my life

The image that has literally changed my way of seeing the mobile art is by Aylin Argun. Desperation, life, pain, mystery, improbability in a simple picture with light tones but with a devastating communication power.

The image I wish I had created

The image that I wish I had created is by Joshua Sarinana. A powerful combination of postmodernism and mobile art respecting previous inspirations.

Artwork That Has Influenced My Art

I have always appreciated the style of Roger Guetta, his (sur) real way of transposing images. His world has inspired my beginnings in a profound way and this image represents its essence.

The Image That Is The Most Underrated

This photo of Dan Cristea (Tiny Collective) is in my opinion extraordinary and should represent the form and substance of the whole movement. In reality it is immersed in the incredible visual magma that surrounds us every day and does not emerge as it deserves.

The image that changed my mind

Clint Cline’s abstractionism was a very special pick for my mind. A striking example is this work.

The Most Recent Image That Made Me Smile

In times like these, the image of Richard Koci Hernandez makes me think positive. I smile and it fills me with hope.

The Most Recent Image That Made Me Sad

The reportage from the Ukraine of Anastasia Taylor Lind brings to mind the eternal contrast between life and war while living in 2018. This image saddens me particularly.

My Comfort Images

The imaginative and surreal lightness that accompanies the works of Janine Graf is soothing.

Her balloons comfort me somewhat…

The Image I Would Most Like To Give As A Gift

Which image lends itself better than this to Karen Divine to be thought of as a gift? A fantastic world full of suggestions and microsignals!
