Angelica Dass’ Chromatic Inventory of All Possible Skin Tones

dassphotography8 dassphotography10 dassphotography4

Brazilian artist Angelica Dass has an ambitious project, titled Humanæ, that attempts to collect all possible human skin tones using one of the main systems of color classification, Pantone®. The background of the portraits are all dyed with the Pantone® color that matches the same color as an extracted sample of the subject’s photographed skin tone. Dass’ ultimate goal is to provoke the viewer and use the internet as a discussion platform on ethnic identity by creating images that connect us independent from factors such as nationality, origin, economic status, age, or aesthetic standards. Dass lives and works in Madrid.

Milano Chow’s Neglected Objects

Milano Chow‘s drawings are subtle and contemplative. One of the most striking elements in the work is the indelible sadness of human figures and the seemingly neglected objects that surround them. Plants and flowers reoccur but they are often wilted. The people inhabiting these snap shots mirror their belongings. They remain cluttered, isolated and damaged.
