    Sarcophagus
    Dead animals have been Julia deVille’s medium of choice for many years now. The title of her latest show is Sarcophagus and includes works that communicate the atrocities that go on in the meat, egg and dairy industries. Read more…

    It’s hard to believe that artist, Natasha Bieniek, who is an upcoming star in the art world, is so young (even younger than me) and has achieved so much already. Read more…

    The uncertainty of art and science
