Nerd alert

I have a new obsession: The Hubble Gallery…these pictures are so incredible it’s hard to believe they are real. Granted, they would not be visible to the naked eye…we have science to thank for detecting and converting gamma rays, xrays and whatnot into the spectrum of colors we can observe.

I don’t love you anymore

Is the title of the first solo show by the UK artist, Susan Collis, at the Galerie Frank Elbaz. What appears to be the scattering of debris across the gallery floor is actually works made of precious stones and materials. Everything is carefully crafted and detail oriented. Sometimes the beauty in things are revealed upon [...]
