Forest Stories by Jelena Osmolovska

"Forest Stories" series is about the revelation of the human soul with nature. Any human being can be himself only in a setting of nature because nature will never judge. I would like to show how strong is a power of nature, to show how somebody’s decisions of getting money of using nature resources could be merciless. And once nature can be tired of us and bring something destroying in our life.  I would like to attached attentions that human is just a small piece of powerful nature.

‘Weightless’ is a series of portraits of Maldivian girls floating on the surface of the Indian ocean. It explores the bright identities of a nation that is under the threat of disappearance. The Maldives are expected to be swallowed by water. If the sea-level rises with the same pace, the islands will be wiped off the map by the end of this century.

I again return to the naked body in the series "Thaw". I left from excessive sentimentality, I hope. The body is represented as an object of the environment, material, texture in some photographs. It is hardly comfortable to feel like a continuation of the inanimate line. Further - it comes alive. The body is expressive, it is our shell, it feels pain and changes taking place. Life is priceless and fragile. Human is beautiful without excesses.

Abstracted Circles by Marissa J. Menefee

The seemingly simple circle presents to me endless opportunities and inspiration to create whimsical and abstract compositions. Multiple facets of the circle’s shape and capabilities grab me; a circle contains zero straight lines; a circle cannot be filled with other circles; a line that never ends, circles are often a symbol of infinity. When lost, it feels like we are going in circles. When there is great accomplishment, it feels as if we have come full circle.
