NEW PORTRAITS DRAWN ON VINTAGE ENVELOPES BY MARK POWELL
A London-based artist has taken an innovative approach to recycling by using envelopes as canvasses for his drawing. Mark Powell’s portraits typically focus on elderly subjects, but the artist is capable of capturing a range of forms with only a run-of-the-mill Bic Biro pen.
London-based artist Zadok Ben David created this incredible installation using 12,000 cut steel botanical specimens modeled from old textbook illustrations, each embedded in a thin layer of sand. On first encountering the sprawling array of plants they appear completely black, thus the installation’s title: Blackfield. However when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of color.
