Painted with Mesmerizing Precision, Innumerable Dots Cloak Stones in Hypnotic Patterns

August 8, 2022

Grace Ebert

Concentric circles in bold gradients, spiraling lines, and bright radial motifs by Australian-Canadian artist Elspeth McLean transform stones into endlessly hypnotic designs. Impeccably arranged on the flat, round objects, the patterns are comprised of countless individual dots in varying sizes and hues. Having veered away from the stippling technique she used in her earlier paintings, McLean refers to her style as "dotillism," which is similar to pointillism in the shapes it relies on, although the artist prefers to work with exact colors rather than layer them to produce an…

Double-Exposure Photos by Christoffer Relander Superimpose Everyday Scenes onto Human Silhouettes

August 8, 2022

Grace Ebert

Spontaneity, honesty, and a desire for experimentation are at the heart of an ongoing project by  Christoffer Relander, whose dreamy compositions masterfully blend portraiture and nature. 365 Days of Double Exposure is Relander's practice of documenting life around him, whether that be the mundane scenes inside his home or the landscapes and people he encounters. Like other daily projects in a similar vein, the goal is to create no matter the circumstances, and Relander carries a pocket-sized Ricoh GRIII with him to capture impromptu moments throughout the day.…

Amorphous Ceramic Vessels by Julie Bergeron Merge the Shapes and Textures of Organic Matter

August 8, 2022

Grace Ebert

From her studio in Paris, artist Julie Bergeron hand-builds amorphous stoneware vessels that mimic a wide array of creatures and lifeforms found in nature. Hollow ducts and pointed spines cover the surfaces of the cavernous forms, ambiguously evoking seed pods, tropical fruits like rambutan or durian, and small marine organisms. "I have fun mixing types, blurring the tracks... Are we in the vegetal, animal, microscopic, or human world? The borders become undefined," she tells Colossal. Inspired by the biological illustrations of Ernst Haeckel, Bergeron uses…

Human Ears and Animals Emerge from Dense Fields of Porcelain Foliage Sculpted by Melis Buyruk

August 5, 2022

Grace Ebert

Cradled within wooden boxes, leaves, blossoms, animals, and the occasional bit of human anatomy form the dense topographies of Melis Buyruk (previously). The Turkish artist blends various organic elements into sprawling, monochromatic works made of porcelain that are mesmerizing in intricacy with slightly unearthly undertones. In multiple recent works like the "Blooming Light" and "Golden Bloom," for example, a single ear appears amidst the mosses and foliage, embedding the fragmented human body part within the largely…

UV Light Unveils the Extraterrestrial Luminescence of the American West in Cody Cobb’s Photos

August 5, 2022

Grace Ebert

In his ongoing Spectral series, Las Vegas-based photographer Cody Cobb projects an ultraviolet light source across desert shrubs and secluded, rocky coves, unveiling an invisible spectrum of blues and oranges. Lichens, fallen leaves, and the bacteria growing from lava tubes become radiant lifeforms and transform locations in Washington, Utah, California, and New Mexico into otherworldly landscapes. Focused on organic matter like mineral deposits and plants, Cobb's photos expose what he describes as a "parallel world," where the UV light allows an extraterrestrial eeriness to emerge. "Because I need…
