Photographer Interview: Tereza Červeňová

•••
Tereza Červeňová is a Slovakian photographer, based in London. Her intimate photographs focus on the narrative of an image and how the layout of the photograph can help to pull together or invent meanings. What is your working process? During my editing process I work with many images and their layout. I try to see how they work together and how they r[...]

Photographer Interview: Ioana Cîrlig

•••
Ioana Cîrlig is a twenty seven year-old Romanian photographer, whose images document the country's landscape and its people; haunted by the remnants of industrialisation. Firstly, tell us a little about yourself and what you do. I studied Cinematography in Bucharest and worked for a few years as a staff photographer for a newspaper before deciding to ded[...]

First Contact: Alexander Calder

•••
On a recent trip to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, I was looking for the way out and exited into a spacious landing and wide stairway. The pale walls and stone stairs gleamed with soft light. Soundless, suspended over the stairs, a Calder mobile wafted on the breeze I had created by opening the door. For more than ten minutes I found myself wond[...]

What Even is Authenticity in 2015?

•••
Trying to achieve any sense of being an individual in the 21st century can be a mine-field of accidental pretension, appropriation and the avoidance of stereotype. Is it even possible to be an ‘authentic’ person in the modern world? What even is an ‘authentic’ self? We live in a world that is preoccupied with the presentation of a self that attempts to retai[...]

Ciclotrama: Organic Forms in Rope

•••
Brazil-based artists Janiana Mello and Daniel Landini began their series of installations called Ciclotrama in 2010; beautiful art installations consisting of unwound ropes attached to walls and canvases that twist and unwind into organic forms illustrating the passage of time. The structures start as thick root-like objects and trail off, becoming more deli[...]

Artist Interview: Stephanie Wilkinson

•••
You mention that women inspire you? Could you elaborate on this? Any specific women? When I was researching material for my dissertation a few years ago entitled ‘Women’s Work: Why are different values attached to work performed inside and outside the home’, one woman really stood out for me. Her name is Bobby Baker, a performance artist who produced a powe[...]

Illustrated Interview: Liam Hopkins

•••
How are you feeling? What would your spirit animal look like? What’s goes on in your head when you’re sat on a bus? What is death? The best feature in another person? What does your average Friday/Saturday night look? What’s been your experience of growing up? How would you depict what it’s like being an artist? What is fear? [...]

Artist Interview: Keith Negley

•••
You graduated from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2000- how long was it before illustration became serious for you? I was always serious about illustration. The potential for taking out all those student loans and not doing anything with my degree scared me to death. Not making it in illustration was not an option. Unfortunately I wasn't actually [...]

Artist Interview: Sander Steins

•••
What's your story? Describe your practise in a nutshell. Ever since I was young I have always been drawing. In the past twelve years I started taking my creative outlet more seriously, and after spending five years focusing mainly on photography, I found myself combining photography with painted elements and collage style. For that reason I started to paint[...]

Photographer Interview: Brett Henrikson

•••
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and what it is you do. ​ I’m an Artist-Photographer - artist being the most important part. Photographic processes are my hammer and chisel, as I approach the world and use visual language to understand and reinterpret being. My bodies of work vary from work about intersection of life and death, classical portraiture [...]
