A series of paintings contending with competing conceptions of masculinity and the complexities of identity by artist Paul Richmond from Monterey, California. As he describes:
“I have felt at odds with traditional notions of masculinity my entire life. What it means to be a man in 2018 is different than what I was taught growing up in the early 1980’s. Since painting is my way of understanding the world, this series of all-male portraits is an exploration of masculinity in a variety of manifestations – from the toxic to the fragile.”

Mexican artist Jorge Méndez Blake makes a brilliant statement about the impact a single act can have with his 2007 installation of a 75 x 13 brick wall, set subtly yet strikingly askew due to a single copy of the novel The Castle by Franz Kafka planted at its base. What initially appears intimidating, even impenetrable, is revealed to be mortarless, and ultimately precarious, as the effects of the small disruption can be traced all the way to the top. See more images of “The Castle” below.

An ongoing project by Swiss artist and scientist Fabian Oefner. “The Explosion Collages” offer an examination of our perception of reality through a series of portrait photographs that appear in the midst of being torn apart by a gunshot. However, what appears to be a snapshot of an ephemeral moment, is actually a hyperrealistic illusion meticulously constructed from fragments of the physical print. See more of Oefner’s mind-bending work below.
