I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. It was a beautiful weekend here in The Netherlands with lots of sunshine. We haven’t had a great summer here so these these summer days were very welcome.
I don’t want the summer to end but soon autumn will be here and then winter will arrive. But today it is still summer and I am in the mood for sunny photos. The photographer of these gorgeous shots is Richard Foulser.
These images where shot for ‘Pretty Dutch’ an exhibition about Dutch porcelain from the 18th century. Unfortunately the exhibition is no longer open but the gorgeous images are definitely worth showing.
These contemporary limited edition prints (1 of 50) are based on the city of New York (above) and London (below). There are digitally printed on linen and framed. The artist, Zoe Beck, is fascinated with the cultural differences across our world’s cities and she is intrigued by how traveling contributes so much to our personal happiness.
The aim of her work is to create the essence of the place that it is based on, she wants to a achieve a visual exploration of why we visit these places and what makes them so special to us. The prints (£90.00) are available from Glimpseonline.com.
I love the paintings of So Yeun Lee!. This talented artist was born in South Korea in 1971 but is now living and working in Dusseldorf, Germany. Her paintings are mainly self-portraits. According to So Yeun Lee, she gets to know herself better by creating self-portraits.
New at the Beholder, an online gallery featuring the works of emerging artists from the U.S. and Canadais, the beautiful work of Klea McKenna. Klea is a San Francisco artist whose career is definitely one to watch. Featured is work from her series Hollow Mountain and other Stories, which draws on the imagery of fiction; short stories, folktales and local gossip.
Klea McKenna was raised in the bohemian subcultures of rural northern California and Hawaii. She has studied art at CCA, UCLA, UC Santa Cruz, and Florence Art Institute. The work in this series, Hollow Mountain and other Stories, draws on the imagery of fiction; short stories, folktales and local gossip. Her photographs explore ideas of contemporary mythology and seek to discover the aesthetics of these familiar American narratives. Klea’s work has been published and exhibited nationally. She currently lives in San Francisco and is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree at California College of the Arts. For more information or if you would like to purchase Klea’s work, you can visit the Beholder website.
The same day that I was telling how much I love still life images, Holly from Decor8 posted about Simply Photo. New York based Jennifer Causey photographs everyday life moments in a beautiful way. Her gorgeous photos are sold as print and postcards in her etsy shop Simply Photo. Jennifer: “These works represent my continuous journey to slow down and discover the beauty in everyday life. I am inspired by nature, design, form and color”.
I couldn’t resist these stunning still lifes and purchased the naturals-set of 10 post card and the beautiful spoon print (spoons are certainly popular still life objects these days!). Click here to visit Simply Photo’s etsy shop. You can see more of Jennifer’s work at her website.
