London based artist Keira Rathbone spends hours typing the numbers, letters and symbols that build up to create the ‘visual description’ of her subject.
From the recent collaborative series of 4 photographs, Keira Rathbone and Johanna Parkin interpret the elements with their specialist techniques of typewriter art and photography, to convey how the typewritten characters are affected by each earthly force.

Visual artist Cynthia Greig collects everyday objects and whitewashes them with ordinary house paint to devoid them of color or label. Then draws directly onto their surfaces with charcoal to create visual hybrids that appear to vacillate between drawing and photography, black-and-white and color. No digital manipulation is involved, but the camera’s monocular point of view is imperative.
My series of photographs, Representations, explores the concept of photographic truth and its correspondence to perceived reality. As a kind of playful homage to William Henry Fox Talbot’s treatise, The Pencil of Nature, the images combine color photography and drawing to create what I like to call photographic documents of three-dimensional drawings.

Vietnamese artist Phan Thu Trang takes the landscape as her subject, simplifing individual elements to their bare essentials. With a limited palette, the artist prefers the use of texture to define her subjects. Smooth areas of bright monotone paint together with the lush, painterly impasto used to define tree leaves. Works in gradations of blue appear as pre dawn or early evening with their soft, cool tones. Works in green and white are akin to mid morning light, while works in shades of yellow, orange and red exude the searing heat of the mid-afternoon sun. Her paintings depict her passion to showcase the radiance and freshness of the landscapes in Vietnam.

Italian artist Paolo Troilo doesn’t use paint brushes to create these amazing and powerful artworks. Instead of paintbrush he dips his fingertips in black and white paint and guides them across the canvas.
Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don’t apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn’t find any brushes.
