Optical Illusions: Bill Carman

Solo Exhibition May 12 — Jun 3, 2012 @ Gallery Nucleus, Alhambra, Canada.

Bill Carman‘s work straddles the line between narrative and surreal, often finding comfort in a strange middle ground consisting of humanized animals, dreamy gradients, and wonderland peculiarities. A trained artist having earned an MFA in fine arts at Brigham Young University, Carman has since achieved success with his pop surreal illustrations. His list of clients include Macmillan Publishing, Random House, LucasArts, and the children’s book, “What’s That Noise?” He currently teaches art at Boise State University.”

Soeng by Lam Ho Tak

“Working after working, it is many people’s life. No time for them to think, dream or even taking a rest. They work for money just like a machine. But where are your dreams? Money can make you forgot your wish. Money can takes away all your time. Money can destroy your life. It is the life you are dreaming for?”

“Soeng”, a Cantonese direct translate of a Chinese character “想”. It means think, dream, believe and wish. Going to Soeng mean heading to your dream.

This animation by Lam Ho Tak is the official music video of Near Light by Ólafur Arnalds.
