In addition to having one of the most musical names we’ve ever seen, Jean Lieppert Polfus also spends a lot of time in one of the coolest places we know: Northern Canada.
As Polfus shows, the North is not only a perfect place for artistic inspiration, but also a place of experiment, convergence, and new understanding. A doctoral candidate at the University of Manitoba, Polfus’ research utilizes
an innovative combination of modeling approaches to determine the cumulative effects of human developments on woodland caribou, including the development of robust habitat models based on the traditional knowledge of the First Nation.
[…] I approach both art and science as explorations of the natural world as they each arise out of the process of noticing patterns in behavior, space, and time. I am currently developing a series of line drawings that integrate my interests in art and conservation.
Polfus’ inclusive and comprehensive approach to environmental science is stunningly reflected in her art, which includes texturally rich illustration and incredibly masterful photography. Like past featured artist Nila Sivatheesan, Polfus’ images sing with intellectual enthusiasm, capturing and elaborating rich natural phenomena without falling into simple cataloging. Polfus’ work, both photographic and illustrative, is absolutely soaked in crystalline detail—often literally.
And if all that wasn’t enough, there’s Polfus’ constant companion Butterball, one of the greatest and hammiest photo-dogs in all of Tumblr.
Wow! Thank you so much for the feature!
Natasja Maria Fourie offers the viewer insight into a collection of intimate portraits. Gravitating towards content that scrutinizes themes that deal with femininity, transition, intimacy and the vulnerability of the female body, Fourie’s images capture how we share our thoughts, feelings, lives and bodies. Her subjects are at times perfumed with a spray of sentiment, emotion, fantasy, and in other instances they are stripped raw, reflecting realties of decay, mortality and ruin.
