Occasional Memorial installation by Oona Gardner
- glazed stoneware, live & cut plants, acrylics, plasticine, found objects.

"I made drawings and paintings on the walls and curtain in the gallery space documenting the shadows cast by the live and sculptural plant and cut flower forms. The drawings mark the passage of time, sun during the day and incandescent light at night, as do the plants, some of which started blooming while others slowly wilted and died."

Happy Birthday to Miró! Born today in 1893 (-1983)

Needless to say, I was very excited to discover the jewellery designs of Seb Brown ; delicate and intricate yet rough, organic and very much like dug up archaeological relics, together with the stones, metals - silver and bronze - and triangular shapes. However, when I stumbled across an interview with him, I found out his background is primarily in graphic design - his website certainly displays a multitude of  creative ventures; installations, illustrations, paintings and other commissioned projects...

Inspired by the textures and forms of flora and geology, Seb's primary fascination centers around the exploration into how people from ancient civilizations have developed their own unique aesthetics without the presence of any outside influence. He also studies the different forms of body adornment throughout history and the notions behind the value given to precious objects.

>> title from some lecture notes I'm revising on Christian art / late antiquity. Love how poetic it sounds.


transitional states of the psyche

"Rachel Niffenegger is an artist based in Chicago, IL USA. Her sculptures and paintings transcribe the figure in transitional states: between being and ghost image; statuesque and the formless; two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces. Her effigies are created, manipulated and destroyed through ritual; torsos are cracked, propped up and covered, faces are absorbed and embedded in cloth, and paint is picked off and reapplied to appendages. These objects are material gestures of the psyche fulfilling the necessity to make solid objects as a permeable and porous body. Materials travel between objects and are generated through discarded works as she employs spray-painted polystyrene, sawdust, concrete, ash, hair, plaster, and paint skins." via arcademi

^ Building Blocks ~ 'collages, soon to be sculptures'

Malin Gabriella Nordin is inspired by rocks & stones and stones & rocks. Her practice is wholly focused upon what seems to be a very banal subject, yet she explores & interprets these little objects of the everyday in every way, shape & form, in a multitude of different mediums - drawing, collaging, sculpting, painting - transforming them into things of utter fascination & intrigue.

“I usually use fashion magazines for my collages because they have the most images with interesting textures or patterns. But when I go to flea markets, I often find these books of stone collections. Sometimes when I buy the books I think they are too nice to cut up, so if I do cut stones out, I save the remaining pages.

In my work, I’m trying to create my own ideas and rules about things I can’t understand, so as to not feel so small. Sometimes I try to imagine objects and surroundings with no actual boundaries, with all of the atoms and molecules blending together, and then I make new shapes from them, or put them together in a different way.”

I love the textures & forms of her collages that also translate so well into her sculptures. She also injects a certain kind of spirituality into her work by exploring the very essence - the shapes, uses, properties, colours, textures, of the rocks and stones. & this is one of her recommended websites which makes her very cool in my books.
