Jon Bentley

In Jon’s latest oil paintings, ‘Peter and Jane, the Lost Episodes’, he succeeds in recontextualising commonplace scenes with unexpected and absurdly humorous interventions…

Work from this series was recently included in The Threadneedle Prize for Painting and Sculpture 2013.

Inspired by the ever-changing underwater life, Portland-based multidisciplinary artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann creates a breathtaking jellyfish aquarium, titled ‘Underwater Flight’ in a place where you least expect it, the Portland International Airport. Continuing her exploration of the way light is reflected on different mediums, Sayuri experiments with colored organza, wool felting fibers and silk to build this magical underwater kingdom.  

This installation is part of ‘Urban Aquarium’, an ongoing project that aims to “create a dialogue between viewers about context and displacement and about the unexpected.” | via http://inspir3d.net/2012/08/19/underwater-flight-by-sayuri-sasaki-hemann/

A neutral density filter is a filter that reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. The filter reduces the amount of light entering the lens, allowing the photographer to select combinations of aperture, exposure time and sensor sensitivity to avoid overexposed pictures. It would normally be attached to the lens, but is hand-held here to illustrate the effect.
