A few months ago I received a very exciting mail send by the lovely Séverine Gallardo from Edition Marguerite Waknine, a french publishing house specialized in contemporary art.
They were interested in publishing a book about my art work. I can’t say enough how happy and honored I feel. It was a very interesting process of collecting and choosing the suitable work. After all these weeks of preparations, here it is:
Last weekend I visited the studio of the very talented artist Margit seland. She is a ceramic designer working also with textile. She produce small series in limited edition for galleries and museum-shops.
Her studio is inspiring as much as her work. Just have a look at this amazing vase-lamp she made from a found plastic bowl, the text-cut cookies or her mood broad….I didn’t know where to look first…. What an inspiration! … and very nice woman as well…;-)
(the pictures of the fruit bowl, the porcelain set and the felt bag in the college are taking from her site the rest taken by me)
Today I visited the Graduation Show of Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
Two buildings, together 10 floors of the the final work from all departments. A lot of video, installation and performances. Very little painting. The design lab’s exhibition was excellent. The work of the architecture department was very impressive. The fashion design was particularly good. All together great pleasure.
The works of Nalogina Lubov are nothing less than stunning. Her imagination and the detailed work is an invitation to dive into her fabulous world.
+Sorry my dear friends for not participating in the last “drawing challenge.” As you probably noticed I had some technical problems on my blog (as well on my computer) flexed only this morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention ..:-)
