Everyday Plastic Objects Fill a Scottish Greenhouse With Faux Flora 

Swiss/Danish art duo PUTPUT creates conceptual still life photography and sculptures, infusing humor into their minimal works. In their 2015 project Fruitless, the Copenhagen-based pair turned a greenhouse on-site at Lust and the Apple Gallery in Temple, Scotland into a florescent green paradise. The two artists subbed cacti and other succulents for everyday plastic objects found around the house, instead “planting” gloves, combs, and plastic cups in real terra cotta pots.

Because the plastic forms closely imitate plants found in nature, the faux flora seem full of life in the unique context, glowing more brightly than their typical place on a shelf or counter. You can see more of the pair’s non-functional arrangements and sculptures on their Facebook and Instagram. (via DesignBoom)

Artist Jeremy Miranda Explores Memory and Scenes of the Northeast in His Sublime Paintings 

Artist Jeremy Miranda (previously) paints in a space between worlds: reality and memory, indoor and outdoor, past and present. Ideas and concepts bleed together within his acrylic paintings like the fuzzy edges of a dream, where powerful images exist amongst unexpected locations and backdrops. The New Hampshire-based artist is heavily influenced by his surroundings in the American Northeast, apparent in his depiction of dense woods, crashing waves, and the recurring motif of lush greenhouses—a more literal depiction of his mixing of environments.

Miranda has an upcoming exhibition next month with Michelle Morin at Nahcotta Gallery, and he has a number of works or prints available through Etsy, Nahcotta, and his online shop. (via The Creators Project)
