They do this by planting different varieties of rice, and as the harvest matures, the leaves fill in their colors and the end results are larger than life paintings.…

The first museum in Italy to be devoted to modern works has finally opened in Rome. The MAXXI formally known as the National Museum of the XXI Century Arts. The facility has been under construction for a while and has not been warmly accepted by Italy's artistic elite. The country of course is home to an incredible bounty of classical art and architecture. This new museum, devoted to the avant garde, seems like it could be out of place.…

Allison Sommers is a Virginia based artist working primarily in gouache. She creates complicated and intricate worlds with a “sharp wit and a penchant for nonsensical combinations”.
“Abandoning deference for playful irreverence, Sommers draws on her interests in renaissance and baroque art, toying with staid motifs and trading solemnity for nose-thumbing whimsy. She delights in deconstructing the seriousness of historical tropes of art,…
