The realistic portraits and still-lifes of Adam Vinson follow in the trompe l’oeil tradition, tricking our eyes into believing what we are looking at is real. But with this Vinson also creates puzzles for the mind as some of the realistic imagery is created from dissections of reality, such as multiple Polaroids placed together to form a portrait. See more of Vinson’s work below.

Check out Soey Milk’s print set, “Onsemiro,” which was available last week at SDCC. The set contained 5 different prints from Milk, each measuring at 13” x 18” on Sommerset velvet paper and contained within a linen case. I’m not sure if any are left but they were printed by Eidolon Fine Arts which is an incredible maker of exquisite art editions.
Robert Bowen’s (Featured) creative mechanical, often otherworldly insects and various creatures will be on full display in his upcoming solo show, “Blasphemous Nature" which opens at Fifty 24PDX Gallery in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, August 7th. I’ve had a few chances to see Bowen’s work in person and it’s always a great adventure to look at as not only are the paintings beautiful but they really fill your mind with what-if’s.
