4 Great Things Happening In Art Right Now

Rune Guneriussen's First US Solo Exhibition of Magical Lights

The Norway-based photographer is a popular feature on My Modern Met. Much to their excitement, Guneriussen will be coming to Miami, putting his work on display at Waltman Ortega Fine Art from Feb 9 to March 31. The photos below are of his past work that crosses the lines of nature and human culture.

Of his work he had this to say: "The process involves the object, story, space and most important the time it is made within. It is an approach to the balance between nature and human culture, and all the sub levels of our own existence."

When asked how long it takes him to make one installation, he said, "The most extensive one took me more than three weeks just making the installation. I really tested my own patience, and my capacity on that one. But usually a week or so, but sometimes I am lucky in my first try."

Romantic Textured Paintings of Couples Walking Together

With a palette knife, California-based painter, Karen Tarlten creates a whimsical, ethereal path down which two lovers or friends walk side-by-side. My Modern Met says the paintings, which often feature rain, nature, tree-lined paths, and cityscapes, are spurred from her personal experiences as a military wife of 23 years, traveling all across the world with her husband.

She has an Etsy shop where you can purchase her work for--in my opinion--ridiculously low prices.
