Doug human photography | snakesquash

Doug Human, a Chicago based photographic artist and presents work from a series of images produced for Mike Hines author of the book, Uprooted. Blending a diffused color palette reminiscent of chiaroscuro, the hallmark of baroque style use of light and dark contrasts. Void of color adds romance to the decayed material and takes the work someplace dark and wonderful.

The essence was a creation of floral amborella and magnoliids (foundation of all blooms and plants) and bring to life the expiration of earth and growth. A study of light and shape as well as bold textures desaturated into the lifeless palette of black. With a touch of grit, indulgence, and sex appeal, the work has a classic seduction of black and white portraiture.

Human has produced editorials and advertising images for BBC, Rolls Royce Magazine, Wallpaper, New Beauty, MONOCOLE, Design Bureau, Food & Wine, Modern Luxury, Financial Times, Harrods London and LUXE

*Photographed on a charcoal treated wood surface (shou sugi ban) shot digitally and printed with 85% color reduction.

urban planning prints, Ohio

At conferences organized by House and Home magazine and in the President's Advisory Committee on Government Housing Policies and Programs in 1954 in Ohio, the housing industry associations fashioned policies, now named “urban renewal,” which were codified in the Housing Act of 1954. But private industry's venture in urban policymaking failed in implementation. Home builders proved reluctant to participate in the new programs. 

These are prints from that time period of parks, housing and parking plans in Ohio. At once historic and wryly graphic. In sleek wood ebony frames.

sylvia schuster | collage head 1

With a career spanning six decades, Sylvia Schuster is an established artist who is recognized as a master printmaker. Her demonstration of the print technologies; dry point, etching, aquatint, soft ground and engraving, combined with her deep understanding of the human form, take these skills to the extreme. Ms. Schuster’s pen and ink, charcoal, and pastel figure studies show reference to classical Greek and Roman tradition.

Her collage work is a distillation and a reimagining of her sometimes decades old single line figure drawings that she now sees in a different way. These collages often are compressed of as many as ten other drawings and are layers of her surroundings and her insights.
