For En Plein Air, Pascual Sisto has sampled the organic occurring markings native to a peculiar household plant commonly known as the spotted laurel or gold dust laurel (Aucuba Japonica ‘Variegata’); a plant variety that has been produced in strict cultivation by selective breeding.

Guy Yanai, Rafe Mullarkey & Anthony Miler @ Rod Barton, London

Guy Yanai’s paintings capture a visual culture somewhere between modern art and Tumblr, and take form in thick, paradise-hued brushstrokes.
