Modern Art: Natasha Law

I love London based artist Natasha Law silhouettes. Natasha Law is best known for her painting and line drawings of women, which lie on the boundaries between art and fashion. Her illustrations evolve from simple linedrawings in pen, with colour and detail added as layers, producing her own distinctive style.

“Bold blocks of colour and purposeful lines delineate Law’s sanguine semi-nudes. Her figures are suspended in a moment whether posed and purposeful or casual and spontaneous. Tousled hair, the curve of a hip, or discarding clothing, the works allude to the privacy of domestic spaces and relies on the viewer’s own voyeuristic fascination to draw them into her intriguing vignettes.

It is her protracted process which creates the vibrancy in her works. She often begins with line drawings from her modelling sessions and determines where to zoom in and crop the image before transcribing the lines onto the aluminium panel. She then applies numerous coats of household gloss paint in a completely dust-free environment to achieve the flawless almost liquid like surface which has become part of unique style”.

Art Now: Lucid Stead – California High Desert by Phillip K. Smith III

A project of illusion, Lucid Stead is modern art installation dropped into the High Desert in California. The 70-year-old timber shack was redesigned by Palm Desert-based artist Phillip K. Smith III and now features reflective mirror slats which allow it to “float” within the desert landscape.

One door and four mirrored windows are interjected into the facade in varying rectangular shapes and sizes. Illuminated from behind in the evening, these panels portray ever-changing LED lighting. Programmed into a computer model, the lighting system flows back and forth between purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and green. The linear mirrored panels were assembled in between the timber bands of siding which themselves are back-lit with pure white light. So at night, the entire shack glows from within, revealing the inner-workings of beams and bracings. By day, the structure’s mirrored walls allow it to magically disappear into the desert environ.

Modern Art: The Elise Wehle Collection on Uncommongoods

Paper collages, layered shapes, and textural dimension define the unique artworks by Elise Wehle. Inspired by urban posters, layered and ripped forming into expressive murals, her tactile collection features ethereal landscapes, intriguing photography and soulful portraits gracefully manipulated to create stunning contemporary works.

With paper as her medium, the artist utilizes her hands–not computer-driven design–to intensively build, weave, clip, fold, even embroider, these basic materials into impactful art. Hues are elegantly restrained in subdued shades of grey, green, midnight and white yet manage to evoke dramatic contrast whether in the mountain vistas, landscapes or provoking portraitures. Designed with a free-spirited energy, these dynamic works of art make innovative holiday gifts.

Currently, the Elise Wehle collection features eight works entitled Cloudy Mountainscape, Where the Land Ends, Lone Peak, Seaside, Spanish Moss, Forest Line at Dusk, Woven Seascape and Girls Looks Back. All of her original pieces are available as modern framed prints, the perfect home decor contribution to any interior space seeking a dose of interest.

Elise Wehle meticulously creates this award-winning art collection from her home in Provo, Utah.

Lace Pattern Street Art by NeSpoon

I’m a big fan of street art. It just makes our streets much more interesting and full of experiencesNeSpoon, an artist from Warsaw, Poland works in several different mediums such as spray paint, concrete, macramé and ceramics, but almost always incorporates a lace pattern in her projects. She explains “What interests me in art is the expression of positive emotions. On the sensual level “Thoughts” are a study of delicacy.” (via)

Photography by Lisa Tomasetti

I shared it on our Facebook page and decided to share it here as well showing all those amazing pictures by Australian photographer Lisa Tomasetti. Lisa Tomasetti has worked as a visual artist and film stills photographer for the past 23 years. Her eye for cinematic drama comes through in her dance photography, a collection of images in which she is able to capture the beautiful elegance of ballet dancers set against the more rough, gritty urban city streets of Paris, Tokyo, and New York.(via)
