Niaz Uddin

 

Niaz Uddin is a Los Angeles-based director, photographer, and filmmaker, and with titles like those it’s no surprise he has a fantastic eye. Uddin’s beautiful shots of nature made me take a few moments to slow down and appreciate what surrounds us, especially appreciated during this hectic time of year.

Sheet Pan Meals 15 Ways

Sheet pan – or one pan – meals serve a myriad of purposes this time of year. First, they’re easy and fairly healthy during a time when you’re *probably* indulging more than usual. Second, they’re a reason to use the oven and add extra heat to your home. (Can you tell mine has been freezing??) Third, there’s minimal cleanup involved which is honestly always plus in my book. I’m very much looking forward to trying out some of these recipes this winter!

Michael Milano

 

Seattle-based Michael Milano creates fabric-based paintings, doing things to and with fabric that harken back to age old textile traditions. His abstract take on things is a fresh way to keep the history of those methods alive.

In my practice I employ materials that are part of our everyday experience, producing fabric-based paintings that are indebted to textile traditions and the history of abstraction. Thinking through the physical properties of textiles, as well as their cultural associations, I combine processes such as dyeing, pressing, and distressing to create abstract compositions that champion a deeper engagement with our material environment. Whether it involves the piecing of a quilt, or the seam, fold, or drape of a shirt, the ubiquitous and seemingly mundane quality of cloth continues to motivate me in the studio.

Get Your New Year’s Eve Outfit in Check

If you’re someone who looks forward to doing it up big for New Year’s Eve, well, I know you’re already thinking about your outfit. While I try to get away with wearing pajamas to my friend’s party, you’ll be painting the town red in satin, sequins, and tulle and shuffling down sidewalks in shoes that are not at all winter weather appropriate… and I salute you. It wasn’t so long ago that I did the same, it’s just that these days I prefer not to fight the crowds on super busy nights out. What I do like is picking out what I might wear if I were braving it out there, and sharing all of those sweet finds (and SALES!) with you.

Kirstin Lamb

 

Kirstin Lamb collects skulls, taxidermy, ribbons, fabric, vintage photographs, and paper ephemera, then organizes it into staged settings to capture in paintings both large and small. I love these miniature worlds Lamb creates with inspiration flying at her from every direction. Have a look at her artist statement to get a better understanding of her vision.
