DEVOUR / by  Christopher Jonassen

These pictures aren’t what you think they are. Christopher Jonassen, a Norwegian photographer shot these beautiful and otherworldly series called ‘Devour of frying pan bottoms’, which are visually similar to craters and scares on a planet. Some post-production removed handles and suspends them in outer space. In his series Jonassen refers to a quote of Jean-Paul Satre who said: ‘To eat is to appropriate destruction’ and the meaning of the word ‘Devour’, which stand for eating up greedily, to destroy, consume and waste.

Alejandrina Herrera 

Alejandrina Herrera’s work speaks for itself. Creating beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor, she is incessantly looking for new ways to form, to diversify and present her work. She wants to create drawings that are converted into a kind of hybrid image by the combination of elements of illustration and design. The Mexican artist tells stories about people and animals and how they interact with their surroundings. She wraps everything with a tinge of irony and melancholy, playing around with the actual size of things and spaces. Her goal is it to perfect to draw images as three dimensional as possible.
