the art we’re loving right now

Story by Harriet Johnstone

 

Like a scene from a Wes Anderson film, ‘The Lonely Houses’ series by Venezuelan artist/scientist Sejkko (real name Manuel Pita) is a playful look at isolation. Transplanting photos of traditional Portuguese houses into solitary scenes, the work explores the connection between being at home and being alone, in a way that the artist feels reminds him of his childhood. A sad thought for such seemingly whimsical images, you can see more of Sjekko’s work on his Instagram page here.
