The Twenty Something Angst

Photographer: Jesse Scanlon

There is something intangible about today's twenty something youth captured through his lens; yearning for hope, for fame, for fortune. The swagger of freedom is paramount in his circle. Their seemingly unkempt fuck-you look blurred in the haze of disoriented culture and clouds of smoke. You are a visitor of the moment, gazing in from the other side of provoking red velvet ropes. Desiring everything from these images, yet left empty of clear substantial understanding. An unapologetic voice echos in my head, repeating in a whisper, "When is it my turn to let go?"

The Creation of Two

Artist: Kozyndan

Take a trip with me down the bunny-hole and into the minds of  husband-and-wife duo Kozyndan. An effortless mix of visually sublime colors and intricate images transports the viewer into a fabricated realm of kitsch fantasy. This care-free, take me as I am approach to art is what I appreciate most about the couple's work. From bunnies and bongs to traveling anteaters, their paintings and illustrations are a satisfying reprieve from a now and then dull reality.
