Discoverable Inspirational Wednesday.

Mihoko Ogaki.

At the age of 22, Mihoko Ogaki moved from her home country of Japan to Germany, where she started studying the art of sculpture. She has been displaying her work since 2001, both in group and solo exhibitions. Her series named “Milky Ways” features figurative sculptures which project galaxy-like patterns on the surrounding surfaces. As well as exploring themes such as life, death and rebirth, Ogaki’s beautiful sculptures also encapsulate the expansive and untamed character of the human self. In drawing parallels with imagery of space and time, Ogaki identifies the complex nature of the individual. As with the stars, mapping and exploring these complexities is a part of the journey that is life.

Lukas Kozmus.

5 years ago, Berlin based photographer Lukas Kozmus began his travels around Asia. Using his Sony DSLR, he documented his travels around India, Nepal and Indonesia. There is diversity in his work as he not only captures open landscapes but also more urban settings and portraits. His images are raw and fresh but none the less beautifully composed and elegant. In particular one can really appreciate how each picture seems to have been produced so effortlessly, and yet Kozmus manages to transport his audience to the scene of each photograph, creating a visual diary of every new discovery made on his travels.

Jesse Treece.

Jesse Treece is an American collage artist living in Seattle. His enchanting pieces are composed with imagery from vintage books and magazines; he combines cuttings of everyday American life with contrasting landscapes, creating eerie and mystical settings for such mundane practices. The self-taught artist employs disparity to produce imaginative and dream-like compositions, which play on the mind of the individual by being both simple and complex at once. Each image subtly encourages the audience to re-think what they know and approach the world around them with a new, more inspired perspective.
