Kenyan photographer Osborne Macharia traverses the realms of Afrofuturism and Eastern African geography through his newest series, Daughters of the Rift.
Macharia’s work references the Great Rift Valley, which spans Eritrea to Mozambique. Over thousands of years, major tectonic activity has shaped the geographic marvel, as the Somali plate pulls away from the Nubian plate. The divergent boundary continues to actively separate today, resulting in dramatic landscapes, frontiers, and divisions.
Exploring the nuances of beauty and tradition that perambulate within and across borders touched by the valley, Macharia’s subjects don expressive beadwork referencing tribal communities, signifying varying concepts of beauty unique to each region. More

Prismatic pools, strings of pearls, seashells, and elemental interactions characterize the work of Alexis Trice, whose oil paintings illuminate both the beauty and the brutality of nature. Sly predators take the form a spirits or totems in a dreamlike world, their tears gushing into oyster shells or glowing bodies of water.
“(This series) is about energy: emotional and molecular. And the transference and its impact when it ripples outward,” Trice says. “The water is a source of our own universal untapped emotion. More

Vadim Sherbakov is no stranger to wild and expansive vistas (previously), training his lens on vast landscapes and dramatic events. A fascination with light, scale, and the wonders of the unknown permeate much of his work, from terrestrial subjects to his interest in the cosmos.
Rather than shooting through a telescope or homing in on celestial bodies, he transforms our understanding of the universe—as a crucible for the imagination, its physics, and its boundlessness—on a macro scale in his new high-definition video “Creation.”
Sherbakov expresses the incredible energy and power generated by astronomical phenomena like the Big Bang or supernovas, scaled down to fit inside the artist’s studio.

Typically, one avoids getting “caught like a deer in headlights,” but for Kiko Miyares, that’s the whole point. Chiseled from single pieces of timber, the Llanes, Spain-based artist fashions miniature, colorful cars with the high-beams turned on and an array of landscapes and tableaux in their sights.
“I immerse myself in a creative game where shapes, dimensions, and perspective intertwine to challenge expectations,” Miyares says.
The artist often experiments perception, carving wood into a wide range of objects like shoes, animals, and figures with elongated, surreal features. More

Cristina Camacho likens canvas stretched across a skeletal frame to skin. Both a protectant and a site for expression, the flesh is one of many layers within the body that the artist peels back to reveal what lies beneath and within. “When I first started cutting the canvas, I was very interested in stopping seeing the canvas as the surface where the paint goes,” she tells Colossal.
In Carne, a series of symmetrical paintings sliced and sculpted into three-dimensional forms, Camacho expands on her earlier bodies of work that explore universal themes around female anatomy, shame, and healing. More

In a brief email exchange about her work, GaHee Park references freedom several times. The Seoul-born, Montréal-based artist wants to liberate herself from realism and infuse her paintings with the expressive, simplified qualities of abstraction, creating decadent scenes with recurring motifs like eyes and fish. “I like to think about every subject of my work, including animals and human figures, as part of a still life. That gives me more freedom to make images,” she shares. More

Thousands of microchips, terminals, nails, letter keys, and lengths of wire transform into spectacular, monumental sculptures by acclaimed Ethiopian artist Elias Sime. In his exhibition Eregata እርጋታ at Arnolfini in Bristol, he highlights assemblages made from everyday materials, especially discarded technological detritus like computer keys, circuit boards, wires, and other electronic objects.

Barbara Earl Thomas reminds us that darkness—and the absences and omissions it conceals—are part of the stories we’ve adopted as truth. Her pieces gravitate toward the inextricable relationship between light and dark, with warm colors and soft glows emanating from floral motifs.
Working in paper and Tyvek, Thomas makes poetry of nature as it envelops the human body, carving intricate narratives that can be read as beautiful and apocalyptic. She’s interested in illuminating the choices society makes, whether it be deciding to cloister ourselves in climate-controlled spaces safe from the elements or cling to baseless prejudices. More
