Monochromatic Portraits Obscured by Colorful Abstract Markings by Guim Tió Zarraluki 

Barcelona-based artist Guim Tió Zarraluki paints pieces tied to memory and how it is obscured over time, covering the faces of his subjects in bright swaths of oil paint. His research as of late has brought him to topics such as how things slip into oblivion or are saved forever on our technological devices, areas which are abstractly displayed within his work.

In his latest series No Name Project, the individuals have minimal lines that mark their faces’, while in Now, Remember swirls and concentric circles take over the entirety of each visage. You can see more of his portraits from past series on his Instagram and Facebook.

More Than a Mile of Abstract Neon Lighting Suspended Within Tate Britain

Suspended from the ceiling of Tate Britain's Duveen Galleries is Welsh artist Cerith Wyn Evans' latest installation, over a mile of bright neon lighting broken into abstract lines and monumental curves. The piece, Forms in Space… by Light (in Time), changes with perspective, each of the work’s three sections continuously morphing as one walks around the clusters of kinetic energy.

These abstract symbols appear as marked movements in the air, a direct intention by Wyn Evans who was greatly influenced by Japanese Noh theatre and choreology—the practice of turning dance into notational form.

Other site-specific installations by the aritst include Arr/Dep (imaginary landscape for the birds) at the Headquarters of Lufthansa in Frankfurt (2006) and E=V=E=N=T (2015), a sculpture commissioned for Malmö Live. You can visit his installation, which was produced for the Tate Britain Commission with support from Sotheby’s, until August 20, 2017. (via Dezeen)
