Mark Whalen, covered here, is an Australian born artist living and working in Los Angeles known for his Greco-Roman inspired works. His pieces span resin-coated paintings to ceramic sculpture and pottery, which depict little geometric worlds inhabited by an unusual civilization. Whalen has described his images as "a bizarre version of life itself". Over the years, he became continually interested in portraying how humans interact with the spaces around them. Spatial theory is one of the themes of his upcoming exhibition "Trapezoid" at KP Projects/MKG in Los Angeles, opening Setember 12th.
Moscow, Russia based artist Tatiana Plakhova is fascinated by universal concepts which are at the core of her futuristic works. Her approach is purely analytical, designing luminous landscapes using precise geometric lines. Created entirely in Adobe Illustrator, she calls these "infographic drawings", reflecting on how we collect information about the world around us. In her statement, Plakhova writes, "This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere."
