Featured Art by Ira Simidchieva

Ira Simidchieva is an NYC-based artist, originally from Europe.

She focuses on contemporary abstract figurative art and abstraction and her preferred media and materials are oil paints on canvas. Ira utilizes an eclectic, contemporary approach to create colorful artworks. The images she paints have no analog in reality and everything in the paining: color, structure, composition, is sourced in her imagination. She maintains the view that an artwork is a metaphor and everything in a painting is language: the color talks, the shape talks and the different elements in the painting communicate among themselves. The whole painting communicates a non-verbal message that is transmitted to the perceiver.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
