Single Malt Scotch Art

“One fateful morning, photographer Ernie Button picked up the Scotch glass he had left out overnight and noticed something — a pattern in the film of dried liquid at the bottom of his cup. So began Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch, an ongoing project in which Button experiments with photographing Scotch residues, shining different lights through them, manipulating the dry patterns, or letting them run hog wild. The result looks like miniature magic planets or puddles of gold or oil — pretty gorgeous for something accidentally left on the counter.”

Birds Made from Recycled Metal Scraps

“Inspired by the forms of animals artist Barbara Franc seeks to capture a sense of motion as she recreates a variety of wildlife from birds to horses using reclaimed materials such as old food tins. Via her artist statement:

I have always been fascinated by the shapes and sculptural forms of animals, they present a never-ending source of inspiration to me. I try to capture a feeling of their movement and presence in my sculpture. For this I use wire and other materials in a way that suggests drawing in three dimensions. This allows me greater freedom to add changes whenever I want during the construction to keep the feeling fluid and to reflect the diversity of movement and form. I increasingly use recycled and discarded materials as I enjoy the challenge of transforming something with a past history into something new and exciting.”

Window Seat

“Julieanne Kost’s Window Seat series finds the artist snapping photos from the seat of an airplane, resulting in some incredible, abstract images of the world around her. Kost shot over 3,000 aerial artworks from commercial airplane windows over a five-year period, and the experience inspired her to create a book described as a “unique creative seminar.”’

Manipulated Photos of Abandoned Buildings

“Los Angeles-based artist Ed Freeman transform abandoned fast food restaurants and gas stations into objects of startling beauty. ‘All have been manipulated to enhance and ennoble these very ordinary structures that might otherwise go unnoticed and unappreciated,’ he explains. In some cases Freeman only changes the background of the original shot; other images have been completely overhauled with the magic of Photoshop.”

Lara Zankoul

“At the young age of 25, Lebanese artist, Lara Zankoul, is a part-time economist and a part-time fine arts photographer. The self-taught photographer calls her work a necessary escape from her monotonous day job, and this sense of escapism is the most pervasive theme in her work. Her website states:

‘Symbols are omnipresent in her body of work and characters are anonymous and timeless, making her images universal. The concepts are initially expressions of her subconscious as they are spontaneous visuals in her mind. Her photographic process resides in recreating or mimicking these cerebral moments rather than capturing reality.'”
