Schumann’s innovative use of materials and color combinations provides each work with a unique and ineffable luminosity. In daylight, the streamlined blending of transparent and opaqu...

mineral-mag:Rinko Kawauchi is a Japanese, Tokyo-based photographer whose work is characterized by soft focus vignettes describing the poetry of the everyday. In an interview, Kawauchi says that she prefers “listening to the small voices in our world, those which whisper,” it is that very thoughtful perspective that provokes meditation and invites her viewers to be sensitive to their surroundings so that they too can transform delicate, vibrant details of daily life into ephemeral treasures.

FEATURED ARTIST: Andrea Kvas  Andrea Kvas’s work merges an instinctive and playful approach to painting with an analysis and reconsideration of the codes that distinguish this discipline. Radicalizing, deconstructing and reconstructing in particular the relationship between paint and supports, his pictorial research calls for different fruition schemes; an attitude that led Kvas to find intersections with sculptural and relational practices. Painting is not intended merely as an object of conte...

Serapis and the 7-Pointed StarA bearded man wears a serious expression and a headband with a star. The 7-pointed star is a symbol of the Egyptian deity Serapis.

jtotheizzoe: The Distance of the Moon Looking for a beautiful way to kill some time on a weekend afternoon? Listen to Liev Schreiber reading Italo Calvino’s “The Distance of the Moon”, from Cosmicomics. It’s a tale of the evolution of our moon, from a time when it was not so far away, milked for nourishment by lunar herdsmen. How wonderful that a story could be built on science (our moon did used to be closer to us, and moves farther away every year) yet journey so far into the imagination!  A+...
