Cork Art – Take 3

blog.lightopiaonline.com

I’ve always loved corks. I’m not sure, really, what their appeal is, but I used to save the few I came across. I never would have thought of trying to create things like this, though. I love what people think to do with everyday things, making them into something super special and unique.

Creating Beauty

Medellin, Colombia – art, craft, and architecture – via Jane Daniells

 

My friend Jane posted this on Facebook, tagging me because she knew I would absolutely LOVE it. I went nuts over it immediately, and then my mind boggled when I realized how LARGE it is. Those are PEOPLE around the edges, and STORES. Where most malls would use the space for a food court or something, these people created real beauty for all to enjoy. What a lot of talent went into this! If you look carefully, you can see 5 men laying in more glorious purple flowers on the right of the picture. Just beautiful.

Dani Ives – Felt Paintings – Take 3

Incredibly Lifelike Felt Paintings of Pets and Plants by Dani Ives

by Laura Staugaitis on August 22, 2017 – Colossal

“Fiber artist Dani Ives conjures the natural world in her unique take on the traditional craft of needle felting. Ives describes her method as “painting with wool,” in which she applies her love of animals and her background in biology to build intricately layered portraits of a variety of flora and fauna.”

 

“Dogs, cats, birds, and farm animals come to life alongside toadstools and fruits, and Ives’ ability to capture the moisture and glint of animal eyes and noses adds an impressive degree of realism. While her plant life depictions take more of a traditional botanical angle, most of Ives’s animal subjects take center stage on the embroidery hoop, peering out at the viewer, further adding to the strong sense of unique personality, and it’s no surprise that she is in high demand for pet portrait commissions.”

 

“Ives sells originals and prints of her work on Etsy, and she continues her love of teaching by traveling from her home in Northwest Arkansas to lead workshops around the country, as well as offering e-courses in needle felting. You can also follow her work on Instagram”

Thanks again to Laura Staugaitis from Colossal for bringing us the work of this fine artist.

Clio Newton Charcoal Portraits – Take 2

Towering Charcoal Portraits of Women by Clio Newton

by Christopher Jobson on August 28, 2017 – Colossal

 

Swiss artist Clio Newton has been hard at work on a series of larger-than-life portraits of women portrayed entirely with compressed charcoal. The towering drawings can reach nearly 8 feet tall and capture near photographic detail of her subject’s faces, hair, and bodies. Several of the new portraits will be on view in an upcoming show at Benjamin Eck Galerie in Munich titled ‘Realism‘ that opens September 14, 2017. You can read an interview with Newton on Quiet Lunch and see more of her recent work and studio photos on Instagram. (via Supersonic Electronic, Gaks Designs)

 

Thanks to Christopher Jobson of Colossal for this article on Clio Newton
