Mother by @Billelis

Billelis presents “Mother”, A 1/1 digital artwork depicting the Mother of Jesus in divine sorrow. Inspired by the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in which the Holy Mother of God perished after living her earthly life only to ascend to the heavens 3 days after her death. Her victory over darkness and sin is visualised through the use of blooming flowers in her decaying cavity. A reminder of the life after we have gone and all physical attributes have faded away. The divine and saintly nature of her memory and sacrifice is beautifully adorned in gold. Our earthly existence diminishing but life, memory and belief lives on through eternity.

Trash Beauty or Venus in Recycled Plastic by @Zutto

Most of all the plastic can be recycled, but 84% of it ends up in landfill. It’s been one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time that worries me. All this plastic can be reused and transformed into amazing futuristic materials, textiles, so all plastic becomes “infinite”.

Self-portrait with a gold earring and a curl of hair by Sasha Katz

I made this self – study to crystallise the feeling of constant conflicting emotions I experienced in a certain period of time. I was influenced by the visuals of Tamara de Lempicka while creating this piece.

The official start to a series within a series, depicting the journey of me and brother Andrè in real-time. This was the last day of a chapter turning business trip to Miami Beach, FL. We decided to stay up all night and watch the sunrise. It was the middle of winter, 70 degrees at the beach and we had some Parkas we wanted to wear. Photo/Animation: Reid Campbell

Rare Moments of Beauty – Struggle by @pawelnolbert

What’s the value of beauty today? Various aspects of beauty expressed as individual brushstrokes – elusive moments of beauty, suspended in time and space. Renaissance-inspired brushstroke artwork from 2018-2019, when I photographed clouds in New York and Italy, and painted in those places using my trademark technique.
RMOB examines the value and meaning of beauty today, as the standards of beauty change over the years, but the classical understanding of beauty remains universal and timeless, regardless of trends. Beauty, as the original purpose of art, adds the spiritual layer that transcends time and momentarily lifts us to a higher space, from the mundane everyday reality.
