Canadian-born artist Andrew Salgado (previously here and here) presents a new body of work composed of towering portraits that span over eight-feet-tall. The mixed media works incorporate materials as diverse as paperback books and miniature cacti—objects that bring even more texture to the cross-hatched oil and pastel faces portrayed on each canvas.

New Mixed Media Landscapes and Still Lifes That Merge Photography and Impressionism by Stev’nn Hall

New Mixed Media Landscapes and Still Lifes That Merge Photography and Impressionism by Stev’nn Hall

Stev’nn Hall (previously) blends photography and painting together in an impressionistic style, often focusing his works on the rural landscapes of his Canadian home, or images of flowers he takes in his studio. The pieces are built from images shot with a 35mm camera, and feature gestures on the surface in the mediums of acrylic, ink, and pastel. These markings serve as both complements to the landscapes and abstract bits of scrawl, simultaneously pushing the underlying photograph to appear more like a painting, and Hall’s painted additions to seem like photographic errors.

As part of her ongoing series titled Traveling Landscapes, New York-based artist Kathleen Vance constructs entire landscapes inside of old steamer trunks and repurposed luggage. Many of the pieces incorporate real running water, soil, and living plant life to form encapsulated environments, though others are constructed from common model making materials and resin. The pieces are intended to speak to the fragility of drinking water reservoirs and issues of water rights. More

Artist Allison May Kiphuth captures scenes inspired by her surroundings in Maine and along the New Hampshire sea coast by squeezing them into small wooden boxes scarcely a few inches wide. Her mixed media dioramas are constructed from layered ink and watercolor illustrations assembled with pins and string inside antique boxes. The content of each artwork varies from piece to piece from underwater scenes of sea life, to magical tiny worlds populated by forest creatures. More

Blurring the line between the real and imagined, Stev’nn Hall paints and stains images he takes with his 35 mm camera, often landscapes of his rural Ontario hometown. Each mixed media work contains a collaboration of more than 40 images which are combined, blown up, and mounted on birch panel. With acrylic, ink, and pastel he further distorts each image in an impressionist style, imbuing the ponds, prairies, and rural streets with exaggerated colors one might see through a sun flare or tinted glass.

Dense Mixed-Media Sculptures Depict a Poignant Collision of Urban and Natural Worlds

Dense Mixed-Media Sculptures Depict a Poignant Collision of Urban and Natural Worlds

Christopher

In a fantastic collision of natural and human-made elements, Minneapolis-based artist Gregory Euclide explores aspects of nature, impermenance, and the human experience in unusual relief artworks that seem to grow and drip from vertical surfaces. Some sculptures are framed inside boxes, contained worlds of topographical chaos incorporating plastic, foam, paper, model elements, architectural and geometric elements, paint, ink, and a host of other mediums. Other artworks are mounted atop standard whiteboards found in classrooms, a nod to his role as a teacher where he’s been known to paint elaborate sumi ink landscapes during his lunch break—all of which are subsequently erased.

Deeply influenced by a childhood spent growing up on Long Beach in Sag Harbor, N.Y., artist Grant Haffner tries to capture the color and feeling of sunsets burnt into his memories. Haffner works primarily with a mixture of acrylic, marker, pencil and paint pen on wood panels to create vibrant neon depictions of Long Island landscapes from the viewpoint of roadways punctuated with power lines. He shares about his paintings:

The East End of Long Island has been my home for most of my life.

Belgian artist ROA (previously) just opened his first solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC titled Metazoa. The new series of mixed media works feature the artist’s familiar black and white depictions of animals painted on various cabinet-like furniture pieces that can be opened or shifted to reveal anatomical details. ROA often chooses to depict animals native to where he is working, specifically species that have been forced from their native habitats and now live on the outskirts of urban areas. More

Starting with vintage photography and illustrations of models sporting fashions from the 1950s, Amsterdam-based artist Hinke Schreuders applies a rich layer of hand-stitched embroidery, beading, lace, and flourishes of ink to entirely new images that can be both unsettling and exuberant. The pieces seen here are part of an ongoing series called Works on Paper, started in 2008. With her work Schreuders says she seeks to “subtly confuse notions of feminine vulnerability and reinforce the position of embroidery as an artistic medium,” something I think we can all agree she has done masterfully.
