Turning her home upside down with surreal art, Melbourne-based artist Magdalena Bors has created a very inspiring series, titled The Seventh Day. Bors explains in her artist bio that her practice to date has predominantly been to explore the idea of the sublime in the everyday, and you can see just where she was heading with these beautiful images.

Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with coloured lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. More of his work can […]
Kate Taylor is a fine artist based in Toronto specializing in abstract landscapes. Her work, with its delicate paint strokes, creates an air of whimsy and energy. She takes creative influences from Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, the Group of Seven, and Jean Paul Riopelle – the Montreal-based artist who captured raw energy in his large […]
If I had to pick a colour pallet to dream in, I would choose Jeremy Miranda’s paintings, surreal atmospheric landscapes that are never over-worked. If you haven’t gotten your hands dirty painting in a while, you will want to after looking a Miranda’s work.
We’ve loved Carl Warner’s Foodscapes works before, and we are absolutely digging Bodyscapes, his photo-manipulated series of vast and mountainous landscapes from sensual human bodies. Consider us wowed all over again.
What can you do with military-grade flares? In his Take Refuge series, LA-based photographer Kevin Cooley used these to illuminate the nighttime and often cold landscapes of wherever he travelled to for his other projects, and shot the long-exposure images with an analog 4×5 large format camera. They emit the same inviting glow regardless of […]
Anna Pogossova is a Moscow-born, Sydney-based photographer with a growing following in the art and commercial worlds. She constructs fictitious environments, mostly out of a composite of existing landscapes and miniature objects/sets which she shoots in her studio. Her practice is mainly concerned with the experience of familiarity in fictional and uncanny imagery, such as […]
These cool illustrations from Shane McAdams were created using an unexpectedly fresh media: try ball point pen, oil, and resine on panel. Step into a world of synthetic landscapes that are bursting with scenes of abstract bright colors. Some of the imagery is naturalistic and comfortable, but each piece sports neon colors, even where you’d […]
I’m a Montana-based BFA student and this is my first collage series, called Mapping, which shows the transformation of our landscapes due to human impact over time. They are surreal yet light-hearted, while showing a collision between the organic and inorganic.
My digital work allows me to explore vibrant use of color in a medium that I am able to control in great detail. I enjoy examining the natural world, and manipulating landscapes in ways that bring out an ‘otherworldly’ element in the image.
Czech born, but living and working in London, Tereza Zelenkova really grabbed our attention with her excellent Supreme Vice photo series, fusing occult symbolism with bleak and arcane landscapes. With a growing roster of worldwide shows, we’re sure she’s one to keep an eye on over the coming few years.
Ryan Strand Greenberg’s photography is what photojournalism is supposed to be. His work brings life and dignity to any subject matter, and tells a respectful narrative with each image. The material that he has created ranges from technically immaculate landscapes, to long form photographic essays of homeless encampments.
I’m a digital photographer with a fondness for images that find meaning where it is missed. Or creating one. I photograph things people don’t often notice or appreciate fully: beauty in the mundane. Landscapes and the scenes from a girl’s life in the South dominate, and many of these are self-portraits. Nature and dilapidation also inspire me.
Check out my photo series, Spice of Life, where I re-create famous Vincent Van Gogh paintings out of salt, food-coloring, and various spices. After each is created and then photographed, it is then swept away.
