My Sculptures has given me the opportunity of meeting members of The Royal Family which has always been an exciting and enjoyable experience
– JOHN W. MILLS
Sensation of flight
” One of my favourite subjects to try to resolve as a sculpture is that of springboard and high board diving. The problems posed by this subject are those of expressing movement and grace, athleticism, and style, as well as trying to convey the sensation of flight. A challenge that I embraced in finding exhilarating aspects of diving, those rare moments when you feel no pull of gravity and are flying.’’

Title: Swarm Intelligence latest digital 3D art by Richard Devonshire ICAS gallery artist selected in the finalist work VAO UK 2019 exhibition.
Ants have something to teach us about how nature works. Any system whose behavior arises from the interactions of its components has something in common with ant colonies. Using ants and other social insects as models, computer scientists have developed software agents that cooperate to solve complex problems, such as the rerouting of traffic in a busy telecom network or the internet.
Swarm Intelligence is one of finalist work in the category of Digital the Visual Art Open 2019 competition is a not-for-profit event open to both amateur and professional artists based in the UK and internationally.

THE KICKING DONKEY PROJECT 2019
Donkey as a Spirit, Totem, and Power Animal can help! Donkey teaches you how to balance your responsibilities and to remain surefooted when expressing your opinion.
Historians believe that Donkeys were domesticated by Nubians around 4,500 years ago. In that region, they took over for the Ox as an important pack animal. This position in life leads to Donkey becoming an integral participant in mobilizing pastoral and agricultural communities. .So, it’s not surprising to see Donkey symbolism and meaning tied together with the growth of civilization, travel, trade and general service. Their versatility and being a beloved beast of burden is legendary.
No matter the region Donkey’s somewhat stubborn nature was an asset. This creature does not move if they perceive any danger. The donkey knows well what he can (and more importantly – can’t) do. As humans learned to trust Donkey’s intuitive senses it often kept them out of trouble. The lesson here from the animal spirit guide world is one of caution. When we have a challenge, look for a safe means of resolving it rather than simply running right ahead.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT
When I go into the garden, there she is.
The specter holds up her arms to show
that her hands are eaten off.
She is silent because of the agony.
There is blood on her face.
I can see she has done this to herself.
So she would not feel the other pain.
And it is true, she does not feel it.
She does not even see me.
It is not she anymore, but the pain itself
that moves her. I look and think
how to forget. How can I live while she
stands there? And if I take her life
what will that make of me? I cannot
touch her, make her conscious.
It would hurt her too much.
I hear the sound all through the air
that was her eating, but it is on its own now,
completely separate from her. I think
I am supposed to look. I am not supposed
to turn away. I am supposed to see each detail
and all expression gone. My God, I think,
if paradise is to be here
it will have to include her.

Artists have always been among the first to reflect on the culture and technology of their time. Since the 1990’s to the early 21st century, the digital medium has undergone technological developments of unprecedented speed moving from the “digital revolution” into the social media era.
UK based artist Richard Devonshire utilizes cutting edge technology to give a modern interpretation of fine art photography, painting, sculpture, and drawing.
Richard’s creative process involves textured 3d models, virtual cameras and lighting systems that mimic real-world settings and characteristics. While the work suggests a form of Photorealism their visual qualities also radically different from that of photography and lends to a heightened level of detail implying unlimited possibilities.
Richard is creating a body of work which focuses on nature and its relationship with mathematics which informs us of our view of the world around us.
We proud to welcome Richard Devonshire to ICAS – Vilas Fine Art, as our portfolio of gallery artists. His current and future work will be a regular feature in our monthly changing group exhibition throughout the year.
Two works where selected at this years RA Royal Academy Summer Show 2019. For more info contact the gallery directly or visit our website www.vilasart.co.ukFacebook Comments

THE MAGICAL WORLD OF FAIRY TALES, MYTHS & LEGENDS
THE STORY OF SCYLLA
Scylla was once a beautiful, innocent creature, beloved and favourite of all the water nymphs. She loved to bathe in the pools by the sea side, combing her long hair with the nymphs’ combs and prattling to them about the men whom she had evaded. The nymphs, who had their own fair share of unwanted attention from men, tried to warn Scylla that people could become aggressive when they were in love, but the young maiden remained light hearted and careless. She sunned herself on the beaches without any clothes and luxuriated in the tide pools.
