Tiny Human Activities Erupt into Vast Celestial Nightscapes in New Paintings by Oliver Jeffers

   28 May 20:00:11  |  ThisIsColossal

Whether working in acrylic on panel or illustrating a scene for one of his children’s books, artist Oliver Jeffers is fascinated by positioning. He returns to questions about perspective and finding a place in the world amidst chaotic politics and an overwhelmingly vast universe.
In The Night in Bloom, a series of ten works soon to be on view at Praise Shadows Art Gallery in Brookline, Massachusetts, Jeffers imagines explosive astronomical scenes and impeccably aligned constellations. More

   28 May 20:00:11  |  ThisIsColossal

Prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, British artist Mark Neville moved to Kyiv, a city he traveled to frequently from his home in London since beginning Stop Tanks with Books in 2016. The project, which culminates in a new 180-page volume edited by David Company and published by Nazraeli Press, involved documenting life in the country through portraits of passersby on the street, families lounging at the beach, and others dancing among energetic nightclub crowds.

Lush Aerial Photos by Pham Huy Trung Capture the Annual Harvests of Vietnam?s Countryside

   27 May 20:00:12  |  ThisIsColossal

From the foggy limestone mountains of Trang An to grass collection in Bao Loc, the scenic shots by Pham Huy Trung (previously) preserve Vietnam’s heritage. The photographer often works with drones, allowing him to capture aerial views of wooden boats wedged into a harbor and farmers grasping large baskets as they gather tea. Resplendent with vegetation, the images frequently center on industry and annual harvests to create a visual record of everyday activity. More

The Precious Nature of Water Ripples Through Maya Lin?s Sprawling Installations

   26 May 20:00:07  |  ThisIsColossal

Water is both versatile and undisguised. Its magnitude is only made possible by its minute, microscopic makeup, and this equilibrium is what carries its message. It?s what makes water so precious, so fluid.
Maya Lin?s A Study of Water mimics these qualities in scale, subject, form, and material. Lin has previously erected public land sculptures from the earth?s materials, called “Wavefields,” that speak to the interconnectedness of natural systems. More

Paper Constructions Confine Skeletons to Uncanny Spaces in Jason Limon?s Paintings

   26 May 20:00:07  |  ThisIsColossal

San Antonio-based artist Jason Limon (previously) conjures paper sculptures of 18th Century-style gowns, organs, and hollowed skulls with acrylic paint. The uncanny structures trap his recurring skeletal characters in cramped boxes and funhouse-esque constructions, where they attempt to disentangle themselves from their surroundings. Rendered in muted pigments, or what the artist calls “repressed tones,” the paintings utilize the anonymity and ubiquity of the bony figures to invoke emotional narratives. Limon explains:
Paper allows us to know the stories of the past, and I?ve always been drawn to that notion… I use paper to build the shapes to tell my thoughts. More

A Cast of Felted Food, Animals, and Other Characters by Manooni Exude Joy and Goodwill

   24 May 20:00:15  |  ThisIsColossal

Olha and Hanna Dovhan (previously) are the creative minds behind the adorable felt sculptures of Manooni. Whimsical and endlessly cheerful, the small family units, pairs of pears, and coupled avocados are needle felted with wool and finished with tiny grins.
Based in Ukraine, the Dovhans have spent the majority of the war in Lviv, although their mother, who is also part of the Manooni team, remains with family members in the now Russia-occupied Zaporizhzhia region. More

An Ethereal Documentary Illuminates the Booming Grasshopper Harvest in Uganda

   24 May 20:00:15  |  ThisIsColossal

In the Luganda language, the word nsenene describes the long-horned grasshoppers that are the backbone of a robust industry in Uganda. The nocturnal insects are a crunchy delicacy, often served boiled or fried, and are harvested in incredible quantities during the rainy seasons in May and November. A poetic documentary directed and produced by Michelle Coomber follows locals as they set up precarious traps and gather hordes of the crickets under the nighttime sky. More
