Lisa Adams | on Tumblr (Australia)

Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. The scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam’s emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles. (src.

ELiza Bennett

ELiza Bennett is a London based artist who recieved a BTEC National Diploma in art, focusing on textiles. She then continued to pursue a BA in Fashion Design at Middlesex University.

Eliza creates visual narratives with her pieces. Using her hand as a canvas, ” A Woman’s Work is Never Done” is a self-inflicted sculpture. These worn looking hands are a representation of how hard a women’s work truly is. Using thread and needle, which are traditionally considered feminine materials, she brings light to the struggles of low paid jobs such as cleaning and caring. This piece I must admit makes my skin crawl a little, but the message the work portrays and the crafting of it are truly beautiful.

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

x Christopher McCandless in a letter to Ron Franz, April 1992
