Stephanie Quayle’s magnificent ‘The Narrow Abyss’ group of chimpanzees provide the climax to ‘Animals & Us’ which opens today @turnercontemporary#margate. Chimpanzees are the closest relative to the human and as she states we relate with “A recognition of something innate which haunts the human from within.” Over 40 artists, scientists, cultural historians, pet owners and others share their perspectives. Until 30 September. #chimpanzees#animals&us #claysculptures

#TBT Alex Katz’s ‘Give Me Tomorrow’ exhibition (6 Oct 2012 - 13 Jan 2013)
Alex Katz (born Brooklyn, New York, 1927) is one of the most important and respected living American artists with a career that spans over six decades. ‘Give Me Tomorrow’ brought together paintings, oil studies, collages and a rarely exhibited cut-out, spanning the full breadth of Katz’s career from the 1950s to the present.
Katz’s bold paintings are defined by their flatness of colour and form, their economy of line and their cool but seductive emotional detachment. Using categories such as portraiture, land and seascape, figure studies and flowers, many of Katz’s works picture an everyday America in times of leisure and recreation. A recurring subject is Katz’s wife and muse Ada, whose iconic image has appeared in his work since the 1950s. Influenced as much by style, film, poetry and music as by art history, Katz works in the tradition of European and American artists like Eduard Manet, Henri Matisse and Edward Hopper. He began exhibiting in the 1950s, when Abstract Expressionism was the dominant movement in American art led by figures such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning. Katz admired these artists but rather than follow in their wake, he instead developed a contemporary figurative language combining the enlarged scale of American abstract painting with the bright colours and graphic style of advertising billboards. An influential precursor to Pop Art in the 1960s, Katz has famously said, ‘I wanted to make paintings you could hang up in Times Square’.
Today Alex Katz remains a prolific painter and an influential and important figure for generations of artists.

White blood cells? NO
Big part of day to day life at Haeckels is packaging research we are near obsessive about it, more so right now as we are also exploring some huge changes to our current system all for the better - better for you - better for the planet - better for our products.
What your looking at is loose fill cushioning - what they call void fill which is used when shipping large quantities to avoid breakages - it’s usually plastic in some shape or form this one here is a by product of seaweed (of course right!) we make our products from seaweed and now we’re going to pack them in seaweed too!
It’s completely biodegradable not dissimilar to the starch composite we mentioned in our Facebook post - it leaves no trace what so ever - no data on the nutritional benefits as yet as we love the idea of mass packaging becoming a food source.
Super happy to have finally connected with agar plasticity who are currently generating fantastic research in this area.
