Faceless Portraits, Ewa Juszkiewicz

The vintage women of Ewa Juszkiewicz‘s hypnotizing portraits have experienced a decapitation of an unusual sort: their heads are all replaced by a series of inanimate object from plants to mollusks.

“In my paintings I take critical view on the way women have been pictured in history of painting and other visual media up to today,” Juszkiewicz explains in her artist’s statement. “I work mostly in the field of portrait, which I intend to approach from a different angle that avoids focusing on the appearance.”

“Tony III” (2016)
“Justita” (2015)
“The Unnamed Feeling” (2014)
Oil on canvas

Easily mistaken for photography, Dargas’s work is a testimony to his extremely precise oil technique. To achieve such detailed perfection, the painter studies his models and subjects with intensity and intimacy.

911, Chris Labrooy

UK-based artist Chris LaBrooy continues his exploration of “auto elasticity,” continuously releasing new selections of his trippy renderings via his Instagram account

This time around we find LaBrooy playing with the Porsche 911, highlighting the vehicle hopping forwards and backwards on one tire, bending back and forth, floating in a pool, and wrapped in an elevated cage.
