I am completely taken with Tobias Tovera‘s series “Diffusions of Pigment.” The intense, saturated hues are almost jarring, while the oozing fluidity pulls you in. His work is said to be like emotions painted. Love them.
I stumbled upon the work of artist Dolan Geiman a little while ago and have been waiting patiently to be able to share it. The holiday style posts were quite a project, but now that the holidays are over and the New Year is approaching I think that Geiman’s unique style and perspective are quite apropos.
Geiman’s mixed media creations begin with found objects and materials – discarded ephemera which he has salvaged and compiled over the years – old books, magazines, posters, wooden crates, boxes. Through his process, these objects are assembled and layered, sketched, painted, and printed upon, and then perhaps layered some more. The collages celebrate the history and the previous life of the objects while also giving them a new one, a new form.
It is with this idea in mind that I think his work and perspective are so fitting for this week, the last of the year. It’s a time to reflect and celebrate all that has passed and think about how to make it the foundation for something new, beautiful, and inspiring. Make this next one a year worthy to hang on your wall.
