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.
In the August issue of UK magazine Living Etc this beautiful print (top picture) was featured. As I love still life images, my eyes were immediately drawn to this piece of art. Adrian Briscoe is the founder of In-stillLife. He has worked as freelance commercial photographer for companies such as The Conran Shop, Heals, House of Fraser and John Lewis. His work has been published in Elle Decoration, The Telegraph, The Times, Country living as well as numerous other publications. His particular style and approach to photography is appreciated by many of the stylists and designers he has worked with, who have shaped the way our interiors look today.
In-stillLife was created from Adrian’s desire to produce a high standard of photographic works that would enhance the interiors of our modern homes. A common character of his work is its ability to evoke a sense of stillness, which is created by a determined anonymity, timelessness and ambiguity of location whilst drawing the viewer in with the use of familiar subject matter. Adrian: ‘Photography is quickly becoming established as an excepted form of Art for our walls, something that will truly enhance a modern interior. Once seen as a poor substitute for paintings, Photography is now viewed as the collectable Art form of our time’.
Andrian’s photos can be bought directly from the In–stillLife website. His work is available in different sizes and can be delivered to you unframed or completey mounted and framed. I think the photo of the wooden spoons would look stunning in a large kitchen or dining room!
