Sandbanks on the Loire by Swiss painter and graphic artist Felix Vallotton. Developing an interest in woodcuts thanks to a exhibition of Japanese art, Vallotton develop stark techniques with large areas of solid black or white. Later he concentrated on painting that tended towards stark realism but this painting from two years before his death points towards the pittura metafisica (Metaphysical art) movement.
My reworking of Sandbanks on the Loite is an experiment in using flat planes of colour to capture the otherworldliness of Vallotton’s original.

Very little is known about the strange Long-eared jerboa. It is only a few centimeters tall, hops like a kangroo, has a tail 3 times the size of its body and has that some of the largest ears relative to size. Like many other creatures today, it is in danger as its habitat on the barren steppes of Mongolia is under threat. Recently, Jonathan Baillie of Evolutionary Distinct & Globally Endangered (EDGE) foundation was able to film these creatures for the first. You can see the amazing footage here.

Its a little known fact that the Bunny is the patron saint of disappointment. The Pope did it to make fun of the Great Disappointment. Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist which is probably what the USGS surveyors thought when they got to the top of Mount Disappointment and found out it wasn’t the highest peak in the area as they thought. Its surprising the mountain isn’t called Why The Fuck Did We Just Climb Up Here. There are also three Cape Disappointments. One on South Georgia, one in Antarctica and one in the Orkney islands.

What happens when two of the most important images of the 20th Century collide? Duchamp’s Fountain challenged the very nature of art and introduced the idea of conceptual art. Magritte’s The Treachery of Images is a surrealist masterpiece that explores the different between what is real and what is art. The Treachery of Urinals is an art mash-up that brings these two seminal pieces together.
The text, Ceci n’est pas un fontaine (This is not a Fountain), questions what the image is. In Magritte’s original Treachery, the pipe was not a pipe, it was a picture of a pipe. However Duchamp’s Fountain was not a fountain but a urinal that was turned onto its side and called a fountain. So not only is it not a fountain but an image of a fountain but the it not an image of a fountain either.
