In his latest series of drawings, Anthony Coicolea poetically engages with the term “pathetic fallacy” or our own egocentric inclination to prescribe human characteristics or qualities to all living things.

Organic Mylar Collages by Julie Evans

NYC-based artist Julie Evans creates these floating abstractions out of water-based paints on mylar (plastic sheeting).

Occasionally, soft pencil marks are added to form edges and shadows. Her creations look like something out of biology class; a cross section of a plant, a fragment of a mineral, or a grouping of cells.
