Ethan Cook Interview
Ethan Cook is a Brooklyn based artist, working within the history of ‘painting’ but with none of the paint. Instead, Cook creates his pared down compositions from canvas alone. The outcome is seen in austere yet compelling works that challenge the picture plane by turning the surface into the painting. His work has developed through various series, all of which utilize and transform different aspects of the material. His most recent works, photographed by Clement Pascal, are made from pieces of different colored canvas, which he weaves himself.

Clare Rojas @ Galleri Nicolai Wallner08/04/2013
Copenhagen's Galleri Nicolai Wallner has opened a new exhibition of work by Clare Rojas, marking a departure from the illustrative style the San Francisco-based artist is known for in favor of a more minimalist, geometric and abstract approach. Neither austere, nor aggressive, Rojas' latest paintings are equally as striking as her past work, utilizing warm color schemes and soft lines.

Cristina de Middel: The Afronauts25/03/2013
Shortly after Zambia gained independence in 1964 an optimistic project was launched to enter it into the space race and beat both the Americans and Soviet Union. It was headed by a school teacher called Edward Makuka and his intention was to send twelve astronauts and one cat into space a year later on Zambia's Independence day. UNESCO however decided not to grant Zambia the millions of pounds needed. Due to a combination of lacking financial aid and one of the astronauts becoming pregnant, the project was never realised.
