Ravenous Frogs and Surprised Bears Form an Adorably Expressive Ensemble of Ceramic Creatures

   07 Aug 00:00:17  |  ThisIsColossal

Helen Burgess, who works under the moniker nosey mungo, crafts a playful troupe of characters with endlessly diverse expressions: there’s a flock of startled chickens, a bulging rain frog sporting a dramatic frown, and a whale duo grinning with contentment. Imbued with a bit of whimsy, Burgess’s clay creatures are derived from their real-life counterparts. The ceramicist skims encyclopedias to find lesser-known animals to sculpt, sometimes focusing on endangered species in order to raise awareness. More

Bizarre Porcelain Sculptures by Artist Morel Doucet Tangle Limbs, Seashells, and Coral

   05 Aug 00:00:17  |  ThisIsColossal

Based in Miami, artist Morel Doucet imbues his surreal artworks with a reminder that the natural world is ripe with entanglements. Often monochromatic, the slip-cast and hand-built porcelain pieces merge flora and fauna into dense amalgamations: a series of naked figures sit with coral, safety pins, and starfish as heads, while other assemblages feature a singular arm or pair of legs jutting out from a mass of sea creatures.
Doucet not only considers how humans are damaging the environment but also who is most likely to suffer in the process. More

   04 Aug 00:00:15  |  ThisIsColossal

Dallas-based artist Alexis Franklin considers her digital renderings a reinvention of the expected. “I?ve always seen the world through a filter that brings vibrance and excitement to things most people wouldn?t notice, and that?s something that I really want to have come across in my work,” she says of her expressive paintings. Through facial expressions, gestures, and color, each work highlights the nuances of the subjects’ experience, personality, and mood.
A church videographer by day, painting is Franklin’s side-project and one for which she’s received an influx of attention in recent days. More

   04 Aug 00:00:15  |  ThisIsColossal

In the time of COVID-19, disposable face masks, toilet paper, and other essentials are synonymous with safety, precaution, and staying indoors. But in Tatsuya Tanaka?s ongoing Miniature Calendar series, the everyday items are subverted to create the tiny sets of outdoor adventures.
