Microbiological Motifs Through Laser Cut Paper

Microbiological Motifs Through Laser Cut Paper by Rogan Brown

Keeping in mind the references related to coral, bacteria, pathogens, diatoms, fungi etc..., Rogan Brown's latest works are a correlation of paper cut by hand and laser cutting to create an incredibly detailed and varied visual texture. Each microbiological motif is however completely fictive and imagined. He states, "It is this interplay between the imagination and the "real" world that fascinates me, reality is transformed and estranged through the creative process which paradoxically makes the finished work more real and unique." Rogan's unique pieces identify patterns and motifs that occur in the natural world in different contexts and at different scales, both macroscopic and microscopic. He has developed a formal, aesthetic vocabulary that he uses to construct hybrid sculptural forms, half real, half surreal.

Hari and Deepti The Illuminated Valley

I'm always in shock an awe from artists who are able to transport you to a different world, or dimension for that matter, with their work. Artist duo Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker, known collectively as Hari & Deepti, does just that! They are two Colorado-based artists originally from India, who construct these incredibly picturesque cut paper dioramas that illustrate scenes of wondrous adventures and travel to fantasy worlds. Each shadowbox is filled with stories and imagination, brought to life by illumination to capture a fairytale essence and magic for the viewer. "They have always been drawn towards the imaginative aspect of story telling," quoted from Black Book Gallery. "Stories have so many shades and depth in them, and paper as a medium has the exact qualities to reflect and interpret them." Their most recent works will be featured during CONTEXT Art Miami from Nov 29th - Dec 4th at Black Book Gallery, Booth 226, so be sure to swing by!
