Sunday Selects | time to shape up


J P's interdisciplinary practice explores light and color in an ontological space in the materiality of fabric and thread, site-specific installation, and performance and presents stories of ritual integration and spiritual journeys. It is polytonal and unconfined by bifurcation - it explores bicultural and bigendered traits, the liminality of this world and beyond, and carries forward a heritage while simultaneously exploding convention. This examination is the outgrowth of continual struggle for safety in body and soul by synthesizing tensions and collapsing genres, spaces, identities, and norms. The work is coming off the walls, integrates personal story and cultural symbols, and inhabits the body.

Japandi Aesthetic


The perfect fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian, Japandi design focuses on minimalistic designs that are aesthetically pleasing yet highly functional. If you're familiar with Scandi design, you're sure to have come across the notion of "hygge." This is the Scandinavian concept of coziness in design and has found increasing popularity in the U.S. over the past few years. Now, fuse that idea with the Japanese notion of "wabi-sabi," or the idea that there is beauty in imperfection, and you create the design marriage that is Japandi.

Featured Artist | Jeri Eisenberg


Jeri Eisenberg works primarily with non-traditional and alternative photo-based techniques. She represses or subverts traditional photography's emphasis on the representational qualities of the medium, and emphasizes instead the medium's expressive nature. She employs a strong sense of materiality and seductive surfaces in her work, to evoke sense memories and visceral connections. Her work steadfastly serves as an affirmation of beauty in the everyday natural world, but is tinged with the bittersweet - a reminder of the temporal condition, and an elegy for life.

Sunday Selects | soft tones


Stephen is anything but traditional. The medium used for his pieces is predominantly fabric and thread, combined with sculptural 3D printing, laser engraving, and painting. When you examine one of his pieces closely you will notice that each line and element is created with thread on top of luxurious fabrics. Some of his pieces contain millions of embroidery stitches and take hundreds of hours to create. Fashion influence is prevalent in his work. The fabrics used include Hermès silk, Chanel wool, fabrics by Marc Jacobs, Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Dolce & Gabanna, and Brunello Cucinelli. He is influenced by contemporary art, pop art, street art, graffiti, and iconography, as well as traditional quilting and handicrafts.

Featured Artist | Taelor Fisher


I find great inspiration in the natural world, and consider flowers especially stirring. I expressively marry shapes, colors, and scents of my favorite blooms, which produce lush, colorful, and charmingly chaotic compositions. Every painting starts with flowers. But, it is then what intrigues me at the moment that helps the piece take shape. This can be anything from decor curated by a designer, to current trends in fashion, to a color accidentally mixed on my palette. My paintings are not about ME. They are about where they might live. I want my work to be loved and cherished. Thus, my heart and soul is poured into each piece as I create.
