When I saw Bill Brandt’s picture Halifax I took to his work immediately, however it was when I saw his other work that I fell in love with him. His range of subjects is so varied and yet he mastered each subject he took on: nudes, abstracts, portraits, landscapes. Versatility is a thing I admire in an artist being it in a range of subjects like with Brandt or in both subjects and tools like the works of Gerhard Richter.
I came upon a picture of some glass jars by Elizabeth Lyons on tumblr. Stunning as they are they reminded me of another work I’d seen this weekend when watching a documentary: a still life by Giorgio Morandi.

Luzinterruptus is an artistic group based in Madrid. The two members remain anonymous but what we do know is that they come from different backgrounds i.e. art and photography. Basically the name tells us what they are about: interruptions (of city life) using light.
Today on Pinterest I came across some amazing woodblock printings from an artist I didn’t recognise. It struck me that, altho they reminded me of Hiroshige, when looking closer they looked more modern. The artist who made them is Hiroshi Yoshida.
