Trending: Emerald Green

 

Emerald green has long been one of my favorite colors and I’m so happy to see it’s having a moment this autumn! I love how interiors and fashion often intersect like they are for this trend and can’t wait to take advantage and add a few pieces in this rich, deep hue to my home and closet.

Chris Roberts-Antieau / Genius Eyes

 

Self-taught textile artist Chris Roberts-Antieau blames her success on her failures. (You read that right.) She wasn’t the best student and didn’t go to college or art school, and as a result no one ever told Chris what not to do. Instead she listened to that inner voice we all have and started creating some amaaaazing art, like my favorite series Genius Eyes, that focuses on the eyes of those considered geniuses in their respective fields of work

Silk Diaries

 

I’m 100% behind what Silk Diaries is creating, especially during these harrowing times. They’re hand-dyeing silk as a self-soother for stress and anxiety to empower women in the workplace. Their most recent collection, Good Intentions, is 100% Habotai silk that’s botanically dyed with various plants, fruits, vegetables, tree barks, and cochineal (a tiny bug on the cactus flower, once thought to be as valuable as gold!). Silk Diaries is continuing to move the brand towards more sustainable practices.

Nicolai Howalt / Light Break Wavelengths

 

Another guessing game – what medium do you think makes up Nicolai Howalt‘s Light Break Wavelengths series? Paint? Ink? Maybe something less common? The answer is none of the above, it’s photography. Howalt challenges the boundaries of photos while exploring existential issues like the abstract and the real, life and death, horror and fascination, finite and infinite.

Nose Candleholder

 

While still a concept, Quentin de Coster’s NOSE is a sculptural candleholder that’s quirky and functional. The protruding “nose” is what holds the taper in place, while also managing to look modern and abstract when not in use.

John Kviar

 

John Kviar took his love of and experience with graffiti and followed a path that’s recently led to a career as a painter. In his oil paintings Kviar has freed himself from any distinctive human character traits, yet manages to fill each canvas with unique characters.

Camille Chew / Witch Series

 

Let’s start this Friday the 13th – in October, no less – with these kooky spooky fun illustrations from Camille Chew‘s Witch Series! If you look closely you’ll notice that each piece includes that particular witch’s familiar (familiar spirits are believed to be supernatural entities that assist witches in their practice of magic). I love the dark darks and electric neons she uses so much.

Christopher Burk

 

Daylight savings time is rolling up on us fast, and these nocturnal paintings by Christopher Burk are helping me get ready for it. What catches my attention most are the negative spaces captured by the darkness and the windows lit from within that call out like safe spaces.

The quest for something new, distinctive forms and compositions, found in our exterior environments are the themes that are consistently sought after as the major components to my work. The main emphasis focuses on transforming the often overlooked elements, for example, the poetry that happens in the sweeping utility lines along the backdrop of a morning or evening sky with the pinnacles of structures, treetops, telephone poles, and how each interacts with one another within the composition. Taking something so utilitarian for example, like that of a telephone pole with all of its components, on average would be, and usually are, looked upon as something that is less than visually desirable, yet when presented in a unique way this provides one with the tools needed to visually tune into not only their personal environments but also that of the world, therefore, giving viewers the capabilities to find beauty in the simplest of things.
