zoe: twenty-five & in new york city.
I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction and poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose) someone will try to make you feel lousy about it.

The Photorealistic Space Arts of Jeremy Geddes
Jeremy’s process of oil on linens look so realistic I’m halfway convinced he has in his possession an interdimensional camera that takes pictures from another Earth, which he conveniently bundles as “paintings” to us gullible denizens of Earth-1. It would make sense with how photorealistic the levitating and often falling astronauts that populate his worlds. Most of his work is sold out, but keep checking his sites at the links below for updates on available prints.
Artist: website / blogspot
I had the pleasure of seeing some of these paintings at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC in December. Incredible work. Every painting has a subtle shift in perspective that makes you feel like you’re falling, somehow. Gave me vertigo.

Light After Death: Mihoko Ogaki’s ‘Milky Way’ Figures Project Stars from Within
In her ongoing series of figurative sculptures titled Milky Ways, artist Mihoko Ogaki explores ideas of life, death, and rebirth. The dead or dying human forms are constructed from Fibre-reinforced plastic and embedded with bright LEDs that when lit project fields of light resembling stars in the surrounding space. You can see many more installation views over on her website. (via mori yu gallery)
