Vol. 07.16.2020 | Lines

The quality of the line is in itself a fundamental visual language, to an extent that cannot be claimed for any other single element. Its use is so universal that we are all profoundly sensitive to it. Even without an artist’s training, we can extract considerable meaning from the kind of line used in a drawing.

Vol. 07.09.2020 | Modern Botanical Influence

Botanical design is influenced by nature. Rather than stopping at simple nature-inspired themes, botanical and organic design aims to be holistic in the sense that it seeks to harmoniously integrate both human and natural motifs. Taelor Fisher,  Fabio Modica, Jeri Eisenberg, Bill Claps, and others take their views of nature and plant life and transform that into artwork.  Bring their reflections on nature into your space to create an organic feel. 

 

 

Vol. 8.4.2020 | Artist Spotlight Pascal Pierme + Objects

French-born sculptor, Pascal Pierme is inspired by his surroundings. For the last 20 years, those surroundings have been Santa Fe, New Mexico. A lover of the outdoors, his work is directly influenced by the magical landscapes of his Southwestern home. Pierme’s pieces reflect a dialogue and love of his desert city that involves simplicity, nature, architecture and organic elements. “Coming here 20 years ago with expectations that I had to let go very early, I understood the humility and respect I owe to this land, an essential capital of the West.”

Her work has been described as “minimalist abstract landscape.” Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.
