Three completed art postcards.

All are mixed media and are standard 4x6 postcards with space for writing, address and stamp on the reverse.

The actual postcards obviously don’t have a watermark on them but will be signed by me.

I really would like to use these for an art swap with fellow artists- if you’re interested please email me at info@rachelmassey.co.uk or message me via Tumblr.

Photographic Portraits Behind The Canvas By Luca Pierro

Artist on Tumblr | Flickr | Facebook |on Behance

I started a new photographic project and I’d like to share it with you. The series is called “Photographic Portraits Behind The Canvas”.

Using a frame and elastic fabric I wanted to create photography that seemed like painted canvas. Once again, I tried to minimize the use of Photoshop. The result is truly amazing. The models look like paintings from the nineteenth century! I did some research and I think that this can be considered as a new technique in the world of photography. The series is still on process.

Uncanny Valley is a creepy nightmarish pixel art survival horror game with action and puzzle elements that features intense moments of dread and real consequences for your actions.

You play as a night shift security guard a strange research facility, who has problems with insomnia, often lapsing into a dream-like states while on the job, making the player constantly question what’s real.  As you explore the research facility, you’ll soon discover all is not well.  You’ll have to run, hide, use your wits and solve puzzles to live through this well crafted nightmare.

The consequence system of Uncanny Valley is a particular highlight, which draws some comparisons to Heavy Rain.  You can die at some points but they’re few and far between, for the most part whenever you fail at something, the game will carry on, but with real consequences for your character.  For example, if you fail to escape your attackers, your character will move slower for the rest of the game, making things that much harder. 

The Alpha Demo packs more suspense, dread and ‘oh shit!’ moments into it’s 10 minute playtime that most games horror games manage in 8 hours.  With it’s tense atmosphere, beautiful pixel art, intriguing story and real consequences for your actions, Uncanny Valley is shaping up to be uncannily good.

So one of my bookshelves just fell off the wall and dumped all my books on the floor. Screws are completely pulled out of the wall. This is never a good start to the day.

Lee Bul’s Solo Show for Ikon Gallery

For more photos and videos from the Lee Bul show, explore the Ikon Gallery location page and follow @ikongallery on Instagram.

Lee Bul's first solo show at Ikon Gallery (@ikongallery) glitters in Birmingham, UK. “Her pieces repeatedly manipulate you through the exhibition, growing around doorways and swallowing you into dark corners,” says Jenine McGaughran, exhibitions coordinator. “We specifically created environments within the gallery so that the works and their surroundings are in constant conversation.”

The works are popular to photograph. “The reflective and refractive surfaces of her glass works also create a dazzling effect,” she says. ” The lens gives the works another element, a new angle at which to view them.”

Sad looking laptop tonight. My charger decided to die today and a new one is £65. It’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things it’s more the annoyance of an unexpected expense. I’ll try and get some extra artwork done in the next couple of days and put it online to sell for some extra cash. #laptop #charger #apple #littlebitannoyed

Pavement Loop Alex Varanese

Paved surfaces form the arteries of the modern world, tempering our casual sense of day-to-day freedom with a kind of linear determinism that gently surrounds our innate proclivity for exploration with a fixed template of an explicitly geometric nature. But as is so often the case, the oppression of these constraints can force the emergence a new creative perspective for those willing to seek it out.”

3d Marker Drawn Murals and Impressive Installations

Marker Installations by Heike Weber

Raumarbeite: utopia 2007, paintmarker on polystyrol, videoloop 465 x 465 x 270 cm, Transfer Türkiye-NRW, Museum Bochum

Germany-based artist Heike Weber needs only two tools in her work: permanent markers and endless patience. The artist decorates large spaces by tracing thousands of loopy lines on the walls, floor, and sometimes even the ceiling. Some of her installations measure around 5000 ft!

Heike starts her work by drawing the pattern on a sheet of paper, and then transfers it onto the surface. By carefully adjusting the white spaces, she gives a feeling as if the room is swirling. Aren’t you getting dizzy just looking at them?
