    Photography by Prue Stent

    Prue Stent / Facebook / Worbz.com

    Melbourne based, RMIT photography student Prue Stent's work is spontaneous, yet intended. It is soft lensed yet bold coloured. It is delicate, and vulnerable yet approaches issues with a strong sense of opinion. It is striking, enticing, and her signature is undeniable.

    With her work often exploring the relationship between femininity and nature, human form and landscape, her works often appear as one thing but inherit several meanings. Although her images regularly feature pastel colours, interesting shapes and forms, the intricacy of the photo’s subject often appears delicate. She orientates her natural backdrops–with human and object subjects– into a translation of the almost symbiotic relationship between them.

    With talent like this Stent it made for a future of exhibition and excellence.

    ↳ kalypso

    A daughter of Atlas and the sole inhabitant of the mythical island Ogygia, Kalypso is best known for her part in the Odyssey. After Odysseus was washed ashore on the coast of Ogygia, Kalypso found him and eventually fell in love with him. She promised Odysseus eternal youth and immortality if he decided to stay with her, and kept him on the island for seven years, until the gods commanded her to let him go.

    Famous Movie Scene Locations In Real Life

    Artist on Tumblr |Instagram | Facebook| FILMography

    Christopher Moloney, a Canadian photographer and film buff, has created a playful photo series called “FILMography” that pair scenes from famous movies with their real-life modern locations.

    Moloney travels to cities like New York, Rome and Ho Chi Minh to find the locations where these famous scenes were filmed. Photos like these can be pretty simple, but they require a good eye and a careful hand so that you could get the perspective just right. His photos are on display in galleries around the world, and his collection also goes on display at various film festivals like Cannes and Ischia.

    mythology meme:  [6/7] heroes

    ↳ aeneas

    Although he is a minor character in the Iliad, Aeneas is better known for his role in founding what would eventually become Ancient Rome, which is described in the Aeneid. The son of the goddess Aphrodite and Anchises, a mortal man, Aeneas was given a task by the gods to found a new Troy after the old one’s destruction at the hands of the Greeks. Aeneas set out with his young son, his elderly father, and anyone who wished to join him on this quest. Although there were many setbacks and stops along the way, Aeneas successfully reached the mouth of the river Tiber and after a war with the locals, he married the local king’s daughter as a display of a budding alliance and eventually founded a city called Lavinium. Aeneas is often named as the first true hero of the Romans.

    Greg Gossel's Multi-Layered Pop Pieces

    After watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, you may have a hard time looking at pop art and seeing it as a true movement. We even had a discussion right here on theMET whether comic books were a true form of art. Today, I thought I would introduce an artist named Greg Gossel, an artist undeniably inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. Using an array of media involving silkscreen, experimental Xerox copy and transfers, as well as various found billboard scraps and signage, Gossel creates kitschy, colorful art that’s reminiscent of years past with an interesting and modern twist.

    Greg explains “the process of creating this new body of work consists of a constant layering of elements, building up the surface, and creating a unique history within each piece; adding new elements, while painting over and obscuring others. Through this process I try to explore the contrast between the mechanical repetition of silkscreen reproduction and geometric elements, with the organic and expressive qualities of hand painting and mark making.”
