  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Mutations and magic, surrealism and playfulness, matters of the psyche and things that we deny or don't talk about like death.   Emperor, 2015, Recycled plastic   What is an artist’s responsibility? To register their times, to amaze, to promote lateral thinking and resourcefulness, ultimately to utilize art as a hammer and chisel to mold and shape society. Art forms are just survival tools that unlock new ideas... [more]

Today we feature another Paris writer and fan of Lifelong Learning Abroad.  Her name is Frances Guerin and here she shares her thoughts with us about the Delacroix exhibit at the Louvre.     Eugène Delacroix, , 1830 Image Courtesy, Louvre Museum   If you only know two or three paintings by Eugène Delacroix that’s probably because although many of his other works are certainly weird and wonderful, they are not always focused or interesting. As I discovered at the Louvre’s... [more]

Anastasia Alekseevna Mikhaylova.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work’s subject is rooted in my own sense of mortality, which impacts my art. I study processes of physical, technical, and spiritual transformation and combine analog and digital projection techniques with performance, installation, video, painting, printmaking, and photography. I want to show the beauty and fragility of life and at the same time give positive space to contents which might not be... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Most people are already aware of the negative effects marine debris has on animals and ecosystems. It’s easy to feel depressed when faced with plastic pollution statistics and easier still to feel disheartened when you realize how our daily consumption habits perpetuate resource wars and needless suffering around the planet. I don't, however, put our trash on display to remind viewers of how dire our situation is (though I do...

The countless examples of undisguised racism in the United States following the 2016 presidential election, including the violence surrounding the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville last summer, have led me to wonder over and over again: “What is America’s understanding of its violent past? How does the United States acknowledge... [more]

.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? For me, it’s important to follow trends, but I am also abhorred by their distortion. We live in the time of sterile aesthetics, uniform beauty, plastic surgeries, computers, high tech, and countless other options to modify our bodies. Through photographs, I overstate all those available possibilities for corporal transformation. We long for change from the outside, unaware how much our emotional states disturb our physical bodies.... [more]
