crossconnectmag: Intricate Calligraphic Steel Sculptures by ...

crossconnectmag : Intricate Calligraphic Steel Sculptures by  Zheng Lu Composed of more than 20,000 Chinese characters, these intricate sculptures by Zheng Lu are soft and seamless in appearance despite their stainless steel make-up. The characters used are all chosen from Chinese texts and poems. For example, the sculpture that looks like a splash of water is cunningly crafted from the lines of the poem Wan Zhi Shui (Playing With Water) written by the Tang Dynasty poet Bai Juyi. This playfulness with details can be seen throughout Lu’s work. When discussing the use of one of the most original Chinese fonts in a specific piece, he said, “You would not figure that out from a distant view. Otherwise, it would not be fun.” The contemporary Chinese sculptor has been interested in calligraphy for a long time.

crossconnectmag : Envision Habitat - Composite Photographs by Cheryl Medow Cherly Medow is a very patient artist.  After a dozen years working on the project Envision Habitat she has produced a gorgeous record of large birds include egrets, hawks, spoonbills, and flamingos.  Her works are composites - she photographs the birds and she photographs backgrounds and then very carefully crafts them together in a work of art. “By taking the bird out of its photographic environment, I can place other images around him to tell the story of where he is, or where I imagine him to be. When there is an ah-ha moment, I am almost finished. I do not think about it; I create it.”   Cheryl Medow via Slate Cherly Medow’s work captures the birds in a perfect state, somewhere between reality and imagination.  Thanks to Culture Trip .
