Adam Ekberg’s photographic interventions remind me of those special moments that you occasionally experience like walking down the street and seeing a rainbow for a split second or witnessing a meteor shower while camping by yourself.

meticulously fluid paintings by Jiha Moon. Most of Jiha’s work depicts classic asian landscapes with lush brushstrokes that at once look like clouds and debris floating through the air and a tip of the hat to abstract expressionism.

Denis Darzacq, obv. fluent in French.

Life becomes very difficult for me when I do not understand more than several words in French, and these awesome artists and photographers refuse to give me any information in anything other than French, but what the hell, I’ll try my best to feature them regardless, and their work speaks clearly (yay for VISUALS!). He has a series called “Hyper” that some of you may have seen, with the same content but in grocery stores. These photos here are from a series entitled “La Chute” (not too hard to translate) from Denis Darzacq. I’m suckered into their trickery because they remind me of my lucid dreaming capabilities when I could fly every night… “La Chute” is what a whole episode of Heroes should have looked like when the Petrellis discovered they could fly. Seriously, they didn’t need any practice? Ugh, television.

Crowds of Protest

Some nice work by Scott David Johnson depicting aerial views of crowds and protests. More images can be seen on the Tinlark Gallery website or better yet in person at the gallery if you happen to live in the LA area.
