Some beautiful new work by David Stoupakis recently exhibited in his solo show Ashes to Sorrow at the Last Rites Gallery. Horrific and alluring, these lushly colored paintings have a fairy tale-like quality, as female figures pose in scenes beneath stormy, foreboding stormy.
LA-based photographer Joseph Alexander creates impressive images with a strong emphasis on photo manipulation and retouching. Joseph explores androgyny and intersexual themes – not only gender but also something more of an inter-species. He again uses negative space, simple composition and lots of colour.
