Marnite Sue – Hand Crafted Dolls

Marnite paints but is best  known as a ‘Doll Artist’ which is something I have not had much exposure to. She is based in Tokyo and makes this all by hand. They are ball jointed, with human hair, glass eyes, all parts are fine porcelain. I don’t know about you but I preferred the more macabre dolls. Would be interesting to know how much one of these fetches.

Andreas Englund and the disenchanted hero

Where the real rational scientific world takes away the everlasting & impenetrable fantasy of our hero. I think Andreas has captured a really strong personality in his artwork. Enjoy.

Vania Zouravliov

There is something so whole captivating about Vania’s work. I find myself mumbling religious profanities when I stumble onto some of his pieces, so good. I had the chance to buy one of his prints but didn’t as it was just a little too expensive at the time… I wish I had. To make up for that I did buy this today: Vania: Extended Version. He is also an author which is something I only recently learnt. You will find his book on Amazon – Please note that it is reading for the more opened minded.  (Here is an older post).




Brooke Shaden

Seeing Halloween is around the corner I thought to post something a little darker then my usual. These are photos made to look like paintings, revers of Nigel Cox who is a realist painter. Where Nigel is brilliant technically I struggle to find any depth in is artwork. Brooke in contrast has very rich subject matter and each photo is a story onto its own, however a touch of elusiveness keeps you guessing.

A quite death, Her burial and The aftermath (as seen below) reminded me a little of the pre-Raphael paintings: Ophelia by Sir John Everett and The Lady of Shalott by Hughes, Arthur – Perhaps she got some of her inspiration from those?
