Kelly Reemtsen’s works

(All images via skidmore contemporary art)

“Kelly Reemtsen’s paintings explore the paradoxical state of being female in post-feminist contemporary society”   (Lia Skidmore. April, 2011 read more at skidmore contemporary art) We at Mimi Berlin feel that these pictures are a bit old-fashioned. (in a good sense, we like them) We’ve learned that these women are wearing vintage dresses. That figures, it’s fashionable! via:mimiberlinblog

Asylum of the Daleks
Insane Daleks are about to escape the Dalek Asylum where they are kept. The rest of the Daleks call on their greatest enemy, the Doctor, along with his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, to lower the defences so they can destroy the Asylum. Can the Doctor save the day, along with his companions’ marriage, as easily as he can fix his bow-tie?

Christian Schloe

“”One afternoon whilst trolling Pinterest for inspiration, I happened upon some hauntingly beautiful images by artist Christian Schloe. I quickly created a new board and then spent way too long sifting through images and pinning my favorites. I sort of forgot about it until I was online looking for a tote bag the other day and found this. I recognized the style and was delighted to find that the Society 6 page for Christian Schloe has quite a number of beautiful home items as well as prints and canvases.”via:vylette

Nobuhiro Nakanishi ’s Mesmerizing Layered Landscapes

Nobuhiro Nakanishi produces beautifully mesmerizing atypical landscapes.  The Osaka, Japan-based artist creates the works, which he called “Layered Drawings,” by photographing a scene over a period of time.  He then laser prints each image and mounts it to acrylic.  Subtle changes emerge in each frame, and once they are layered they portray an untraditional landscape.  As a viewer walks passed the work he or she experiences, to some degree, the passing of time within this particular place. via: beautifuldecay

 Land Art in Egypt: The Beautiful Geometry of Desert Breath

Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty has a rival. Enlivening the Sahara Desert sands outside El Gouna in Egypt, the beautiful Desert Breath installation is a mind-blowing example of land art that has attracted art lovers since 1997. Designed by Danae Stratou, Alexandra Stratou and Stella Constantinides, the piece was dug by the D.A.S.T. Arteam in the sands near the Red Sea over two years. The spiral installation winds around a serene pool, covering a whopping 1 million square feet across the barren desert.
