read
Loosely-rendered paintings merge landscape and abstraction

With a few notable exceptions, landscape painting and abstraction operate on separate planes, and ne'er the twain shall meet. Brooklyn-based painter Benjamin King ignores this illusory boundary, with raw and expressive interpretations of natural landscapes. The works on canvas distill the feelings and sensations of the nature scenes -- without accurately depicting them. As he explains in a......read more

Shot predominantly with an Olympus om10, his......read more

Take a sunrise flight over Bergen, Norway

Bergen seems like a fascinating place. The picturesque little city on Norway's west coast was an infamous epicentre of the country's black metal scene, which in its 90s heyday stole headlines for spawning a string of church burnings — not to mention a murder or two. At the opposite end of the spectrum stand Kings of Convenience, the whispery Bergen folk-pop duo who sound like Simon and......read more

Yes I believe we can solve the energy problem and perhaps even find a way to deflate the planet’s overheated......read more

Ars Natura: Lea Turto

read
Finnish artist's felted trees unlock the mystical past of her homeland.

The Finns are a thoroughly modern people. They are world-famous for their uber-modern design aesthetic and are wont to include any historical references of any sort in their architecture or design. And while the country revels in its modern history, it is next to impossible to find any information on the ancient roots of the Finnish people. In contrast to Norway and Sweden, Finland is not......read more
