Gregory Euclide

“When I am in nature I experience the world through all of my senses in a dynamic way, but at the
same time I am framing what I see through the cultural expectations I have absorbed through
representational systems such as landscape painting, wildlife documentary, and travel guides. It
is very difficult, then, to have a true, non-mediated experience of nature even though I may long
for it. My work explores the contradictions between the projection of idealized, picturesque views
of landscape and my desire to have an authentic experience in nature.” – Gregory Euclide

two things I like

I love this print by Judy Kaufman (also the first page of her website is great)

and this Feist poster by Dan Padavic (thanks to the comment below!)

Elsa Mora

I love paper sculptures and papercuts, and Elsa Mora’s are fantastic. 

Geninne Zlatkis

It seems Geninne shares my love for birds. Check out her blog – she has some really nice work, and she blogs about every step of the process.
