Illustrations by Brittany Schall
Brittany Schall deals in her work ‘Hair Studies’ with identity, form, and experimenting with new mediums. In her portraits she forgoes the presentation of the models faces almost entirely, only concentraiting on the models hair. The visually reduced portraits ask the audience to discuss the essence of the person portrayed, despite the missing key elements, as a face for example. Metaphorically, her works talks about contradictory roles that we have within ourselves, particularly with women. Femininity is both strong and soft. Sensuality can empower or subjugate, and ‘vulnerability can be courageous or cowardly’. She creates images that are constantly having an internal dialogue about conflicting thoughts and ideas. Schall about her own work: ‘My pieces also express the dynamics of relationships, specifically submitting yourself with another while still trying to maintain your own sense of self’.
My favorite part of this photo is that there is absolutely no reason for Jason Segel to be in it and yet there he is laying on Seth Rogen
…now that you think about it…
Never can just scroll by this.
I won’t be satisfied until Rowling writes a short story on how these two end up marrying each other.
Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
