Favorite Artworks in No Particular Order

The figures of the Renaissance that were inspired by [this sculpture]. The figure twists in space. His legs move to his left. His torso moves to his right. His head moves back toward the left. It’s a figure that twists on itself and is so expressive in the body that you can see why it would be so important to Michelangelo.

Gaza Artist Turns Israeli Air Strike Smoke into Powerful Sketches

As the world looks on with horror at the growing civilian toll in Gaza, and Hamas and Israel consider the terms of a U.S.-proposed ceasefire, one young Palestinian architect is responding to the crisis through art. Gaza-based Tawfik Gebreel aims to send a message, in the “universal humanitarian language understood by all peoples of the world.” He is using photos of the smoke thrown up by rocket strikes and reworking the images with symbols of hope and unity.
