I said to my professor, ‘Why mourn the death of presidents, or anyone for that matter? The dead can’t hear us.’ And he asked me if I believed in heaven. I said, ‘No.’ And then he asked if I had no faith in God. I said, ‘You have it wrong; it’s God who has no faith in us.’

In the Artist’s Studio: Watching @wolfbat’s Carvings Come to Life

To see more photos of Dennis’s work—and the work of people who inspire him—follow @wolfbat on Instagram.

Under his art moniker Wolfbat (@wolfbat), New York City-based artist Dennis McNett uses Instagram to share the process behind his huge, intricate wood cuts and sculptures.

"Everything I do is hand carved with a chisel," says Dennis. While sometimes it’s hard to capture in a photo, "I try to show the process from start to finish to give a better idea of what people are looking at when viewing my work. It’s also fun to show some of the big sculptures I make for performance, which are then burned afterwards."

Dennis first heard about Instagram from his interns, he says. “They kept talking about it and encouraged me to join.” After signing up, however, his captivating wood cuts and sculptures—which take the form of Viking ships, dragons and other mythical creatures—quickly found an audience.

The Instagram community is also a source of inspiration. “I use Instagram to share my work,” which Dennis says is strongly influenced by the imagery of the early 80s skating and punk rock scene, “but also to see other peoples work and share things that inspire me.”

It’s always interesting when artists explore intimacy because of how it affects us all on a primitive and emotional level. Japanese student-artists Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi have created a prize-winning series of images that explore our relationships with each other in an interesting way – by using x-ray images to strip away the skin, hair and flesh that we usually associate with intimate contact.

Kanda and Hayashi used full-body x-ray imaging and CT scan systems to picture four different couples as they rested intimately together. The result is a series of ghostly white skeletons tangles in loving embraces. The images are so striking because the poses they strike represent recognizable human intimacy and closeness, but the x-ray images represent death or clinical, medical coldness. We are trained to take the intimacy we share with our doctors when they x-ray our bodies for granted, which is perhaps why it’s so unsettling to see x-ray images capturing actual human intimacy.

The revealing and exploratory work was part of these students’ thesis project at Musashino Art University. The students also won the Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award.
