“This photo was taken in #Karaman province, #Turkey in 2009,” #Istanbul photographer Sami Uçan (@sami_ucan) recalls. “This sweet, sympathetic old woman was living in a village named Taskale. She might have passed away. The caves that can be seen on the background have been used by the villagers to stock their grains for approximately 40 years since the 13th century A.D. There are small holes by which they can climb through the stock rooms.” More at @sami_ucan and @ucansam...

ART SUBMISSIONPaintings by Shelley WhitingMy art is influenced by caricature and mural art. When I was fifteen years old I realized that realism did not capture the emotion or essence of the human experience. recent paintings represent how I might be perceived  by my peers coupled with the complicated nature how I view myself. I use my work as a means of defining my spiritual beliefs and my attempts at  connecting with the spirituality and individuality of others.shellwhiting.blogspot.com

The crucified Christ was one of the most important and most frequent motifs in the visual arts in the 1400s, when this drawing was made. It was also very static, with Christ’s body and limbs fixed in place by the structure of the wooden cross. The loincloth alone offered room for variation and allowed the artist to add a personal twist to the scene.—Depicting the Sacred through Fabric

Ren Hang, dead at 29. Who doesn’t smile at photos of naked youth frolicking? Lipstick on dicks? Did he transcend art school spring break or early Ryan McGinley? Yes, he did. When the bodies became forms and multiple bodies created new sculptures, new versions of mythical creatures with several heads and extra limbs. When he entered Asger Carlsen territory, it got very interesting. Yet the photography of these forms always retained its Minolta 110 point and shoot feel. The gaze of the model...

This is so good. -Emily I find that hard to reconcile with how 18th century dresses had boobs practically hanging out of them. Maybe the chest wasn’t as sexualized as the ankles were back then… I have a dim memory from back in high school… I think someone once told me that breasts were no big deal back in corsetry-and-necklines-down-to-there days, they were considered a food source for c...
