surreal-drama

England based artist Dylan Andrews uses light and shadow to portray emotion in his drawings. His monochromatic charcoal portraits build up to a dramatic intensity that is almost surreal. Owing to the drama and atmosphere in his pieces is the use of black and white high contrast of tones. Pattern and texture is another aspect of the work that he uses to explore the emotional possibilities. The shadows on his young subjects’ extend the reality of the image beyond the page, a reflection from an object we cannot see.

Films watched in 2015.

Film 139: Le testament d'Orphée (a.k.a. Testament of Orpheus) (Jean Cocteau, 1959)

Nota: 6.5/10

-And what is a poet?
-One who, by making poems uses a language neither alive or dead which few people speak and few understand.

Persona (1966)

 

It took me way too long to see this, but I’m glad I did.

As a technical masterpiece, Ingmar Bergman creates another cinematic genius, among many others. I’ve only seen The Seventh Seal before this, but it was emotionally wonderful.

Here’s the basic story: Bergman wrote and directed, where a young nurse named Alama is assigned to take care of an actress, Elisabet, who has suddenly become mute, even though she is seemingly healthy. Only one of them slowly unravels…

And it’s an Ingmar Bergman film. Can’t wait to watch The Hour of the Wolf, Wild Strawberries, The Passion of Anna, Through a Glass Darkly, etc. 

Really, really excellent. Spam on it’s way.

Dylan Andrews’ Charcoal Portraits Play with Shadows

England based artist Dylan Andrews uses light and shadow to portray emotion in his drawings. His monochromatic charcoal portraits build up to a dramatic intensity that is almost surreal. Owing to the drama and atmosphere in his pieces is the use of black and white high contrast of tones. Pattern and texture is another aspect of the work that he uses to explore the emotional possibilities. The shadows on his young subjects’ extend the reality of the image beyond the page, a reflection from an object we cannot see. The shapes they produce resemble structures such as wire fences and trees, but through their ambiguity, Andrews encourages us to get lost in the mystery. Although his compositions crop in closely to the face, placing such importance on light makes it the true character of his work.

(Don’t) hold your breath: there are THREE new releases directed by women… out next week, 5th June, including the UK’s Debbie Tucker Green with edgy, surreal domestic drama Second Coming. For perfect preparation this week, catch up with two decidedly weird, awkward and gripping takes on families, where difficult mothers face off with difficult teenagers: Ursula Meier’s Home (2008), via the BFIPlayer, and Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk about Kevin (2010), via BBC iPlayer. The ultimate in post half-term spiky pleasures!

Alternatively (or in addition), get ready for Second Coming by checking out another Black British filmmaker who’s been turning heads: cecileemeke‘s ackee & saltfish series is online - meet the filmmaker via BBC Trending, and then rent episodes directly from her site!

Doing a cliche ass @suicidegirls pose. Idk why they do this. Intentionally lifting the booty up. Haha.
I’ve been sending random booty pictures to @squatspo @thesquatpage
& they don’t respond.
I’m sure they get a ton but
These photos are obviously REAL TIME. (Amatuer quality) NOT professional quality or photoshopped or in a specific planned out setting.
Just me bored while working.
A lot of genes Instagram pages like @couplegoals post posed photos. I guess it’s to evoke a sense of surreal and cinematic drama.

So fuck it. The booty stays here.

Project 365 - Day 261 - Clouds - After Monday’s stormy weather, Tuesday brought us moody cloud perforated
with the golden red sun. This picture perfectly captures the surreal drama
of the combination.

the most surreal experience is fandom drama in a fandom you’re not in deep with where you thought it was chill but someone called someone a bitch and there’s only like 200 people in the fandom so it all blew up and it was the main #squad that caused it all and you’re just like “chill m8 it’s 2am”
