I spoke to Karlo Gomez, founder of online magazine Sunday Morning View about what led him to create such an empowering brand for women. The magazine promotes self-love and encourages women to embrace their natural beauty, showing content that is REAL and unfiltered. We spoke about the damaging role of media and how we need to change the narrative from chasing perfection to embracing imperfection.
Photographer and Fine Artist Nadia Attura reawakens the memories of her travels to tropical lands in her delicately layered art pieces. She tells a story of the now and the remembered, of dreams and reality, absorbing a place so that it feels like she is still there. Using a variety of mediums from photography, painting to collage, Nadia turns to art to breathe and reconnect.
Sophie Derrick pushes the boundaries of traditional figurative art by becoming the canvas of her own self-portraits. Sophie applies layers of paint as a form of transcendence from herself; becoming something ‘other’ – free from societal labels and roles. Using a variety of mediums such as painting, photography and installation, she pushes herself out to explore a ‘self-less’ state.
Artist Will Claridge challenges our perception of mundane reality by creating hybrid art pieces that obscure the narrative and provoke intrigue in the viewer. His work intends to get people to look beyond the colourful lashings of paint and instead question what is happening in the photograph.
