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.”

Vol. 7.14.2020 | Artist Spotlight Kellie Lawler + Objects

I am inspired by structured design, patterns and textiles and mixing that with the freedom of a Picasso style continuous line technique to create a graphic perspective on human figures, nature and other subjects. This process offers me both the recklessness in creating a subject in one continuous line with no worry over proportion or perfection and then the controlled hard edge painting. In the end, with its imperfect form one of my paintings may be seen differently in the viewer’s eyes than it did in mine when I created it.
