Damien Hirst's sculpture entitled "Saint Bartholomew, Exquisite Pain" (2006) in gold, nestled in the Chatsworth House Chapel. “I like the confusion you get between science and religion… that’s where belief lies and art as well.” (Hirst, 2008)

Antonio Verrio’s painting of ‘Doubting Thomas’ (1694) above and the beautiful altar is by Caius Gabriel Cibber.
Bangalore born artist Ranjani Shettar (b. 1977) and her immersive environments, usually composed of numerous nonrepresintational forms, are inspired by her observations of the now-threatened natural environs of her native India. Looks like beautiful floating amoeba to me. What do you think? "Seven ponds and a few raindrops" (2017) is seen at The Met until the 16th of September 2018.
My father dedicated his entire life on his butterfly collection which is currently considered to be the most unique and largest in the country. We are aware that he is a brilliant artist but not a lot know that he paints to primarily fund his expeditions- hopping from one mountain to another, one museum to the next, studying and collecting butterflies. I have spent my travels visiting institutions and conversing with some of the brightest minds in the world of lepidoptera today. For that, I am very honored and grateful for what's to come.
And to see these butterflies fluttering gracefully in their habitat (as it has been a long while) reminded me where these scientists' passion and commitment including my father's, is coming from.
When in Edinburgh, climb Arthur's Seat first... then have some haggis of course! With my crazy and gorgeous lassie, Emily. No better place than Scotland to reunite with such an amazing person who pretty much knows me inside out. x @emily.pilk
Mamma Mia! Here we go again! Thank you so much, Tita Imelda and Martin for welcoming me to your beautiful home. I had the best time with you and your lovely guests. Starstruck moments for me, indeed! I am so happy I got to see you after all these years and you have not aged a bit!
Exploring the beautiful scenery of Regent's Canal with @pureyogazone and @culdesac.a through stand-up paddle boarding... topping it off with a lovely [disco pop] yoga session! ❤ Thank you, Jennifer! That was such a nice day.
The entire beer gang is incomplete without @raphdagram! We miss you! I rarely take and post food photos but I know this will surely make you miss strolling around Tokyo streets and alleys. Hahaha. I think I failed to take a few more but anyway!
Amazing dinner with foodie @amerigo_sailing! Thank you so much for heading all the way to London to welcome me. Wonderful food by the chefs of @lyleslondon and @yardbird! Cheers to all the cocktails and sake we tried that night.
Magic happens when you bring together such passionate artists in a room filled with an audience that share a common appreciation for live music. Shoutout to my father. Here's some footage! Thanks Theo and Jannine (@hiddenjazzclub) for organizing a wonderful intimate show. Colour to my ears! @vimalarowesings @giazonne
