Serene Photographs Frame the Fleeting Beauty of Light, Water, and Other Natural Elements

   20 Oct 00:00:11  |  ThisIsColossal

Cig Harvey is adept at spotting both nature’s sublime qualities and the beauty in mundane moments. The serene shots frequently feature a human intervention, like outstretched arms spotted with dots of light from a disco ball hung in Harvey’s home or a compost pile heaped with vibrant produce scraps. Spanning nearly 20 years of her practice, the photographs shown here frame instances of serendipity, whether showcasing bright pink azaleas briefly pressed against foggy glass or the sun gleaming on a dark body of water.

In Flight: Dramatic Photographs by Mark Harvey Capture Acrobatic Birds Mid-Air

   18 Oct 00:00:23  |  ThisIsColossal

Throughout lockdown in the United Kingdom, Mark Harvey, who is known for his striking equine and canine photography, shifted his focus to the avian creatures gliding above his home in the Norfolk Broads. Now part of a series titled In Flight, the exquisitely detailed shots frame common birds ?including magpies, blue tits, starlings, goldfinches, great tits, coal tits, long-tailed tits, and green finches?in otherwise unseen poses: some splay out an entire wingspan, while others wrap their feathers around the front of their torsos.

Lustrous Strips of Glass Bisect Debris, Bricks, and Semi-Precious Stones in Ramon Todo?s Sculptures

   17 Oct 00:00:27  |  ThisIsColossal

Between gnarly chunks of concrete, basalt pillars, and smooth rounds of lapis lazuli, Ramon Todo (previously) positions sleek segments of layered glass. The Tokyo-born artist splices fragments of found objects that otherwise would be regarded as refuse, like a crumbling brick from Iizuka City or coal waste, to repurpose the existing material with a lustrous embellishment.
Whether volcanic rock or chunks of demolished architecture, the resulting juxtapositions carry the original history, although they’re presented anew. More

Circular Paintings Expose the Fleshy Innards of Halved Oranges, Pomegranates, and Other Fruits

   17 Oct 00:00:27  |  ThisIsColossal

Using round canvases with a range of diameters, Alonsa Guevara deftly paints the plump, juicy insides of oranges, watermelon, and other fruits. Each circular piece depicts a seemingly perfect slice down the middle, capturing the fibrous veins and central seeds found within fresh produce.
Guevara spent her childhood in the Ecuadorian rainforests surrounded by tropical landscapes and nearby agriculture, an experience of nature that influences her artistic practice. The Chilean artist, who lives in New York City, began fruit portraits in 2014 as she reflected on her adolescence and thought of creating a body of work that felt universal. More

Mantra?s Trompe L?oeil Murals Encase Enormous Butterflies in Vintage-Style Boxes

   16 Oct 00:00:27  |  ThisIsColossal

Working with entomologists around the globe, the French street artist known as Mantra (previously) transforms brick facades and concrete walls into massive studies of local butterfly specimens. With framed outer edges that mimic a wooden box, the trompe l?oeil murals render the winged insects in detail, depicting their richly hued scales and delicate antennae. Each artwork features species native to the area, making it possible that a live specimen might flutter by its enormous counterpart. More

   16 Oct 00:00:27  |  ThisIsColossal

During the last few months, Colossal has been evaluating our relationships with massive companies in lieu of more equitable options. In February, we stopped directing buyers to Amazon in favor of Bookshop, which directly supports independent bookstores. Although we will continue publishing to platforms like Facebook and Instagram, we’ve begun to deemphasize our growth in those spaces. Those who want to keep Colossal in their feeds always can find us on Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, and Flipboard, and now, Mix (formerly StumbleUpon) and LinkedIn, too. More
