Cao Hui’s (previously featured here) new series of dissected sculptures sees classical works of art divided up into segments, both linear and fractional. Within the resin forms, the artist shows what might lie beneath the sculptures’ stone façades, depicting hyper-realistically rendered, flesh-like innards, bits of brain and open organs.

“We must not only see the surface, but also examine the inside, and so the relationship between inner and outer crystallizes into a kind of perfect logic, explainable by our inherent ‘knowledge’. Thus we can begin to deceive others, using set after set of theoretical explanations. The result is laughter — in the end we’ve merely amused ourselves before god did.” Cao Hui

MINIATURE ARCHITECTURAL STRUCTURES BY MATTHEW SIMMONDS

Matthew Simmonds sculpts miniature architectural structures from raw stone. Part of his interest in producing these pieces is centered around the contrast between the carved precision of his hand against the rough nature of the natural material he chooses for each work. The pieces’ concept also deals with this human influence on raw environments, humans physically displaying their beliefs and achievements by building large physical forms.

The Stones Roses are getting it back together

StoneRoses02PR181011 The Stones Roses are getting it back together the stones roses reunion reni mani manchester john squire Ian Brown back together

Well, normally we prefer when a band says they will never get back together, that they never get back together. But The Stone Roses getting back together has the potential (potential) of being really good (or being really bad). And, the Stone Roses really only had one good record, so its not like the Smiths who are like mini-Gods of people 40 and over. We love the Stone Roses because they informed Oasis who informed us.

According to NME, “The Manchester legends confirm two concerts at Heaton Park in 2012 and reveal they are working on new material.” The original lineup of frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni are making new tunes, too. Let’s hope they play the classics.
