i hope you have noticed that Kate Singleton’s rad shop Buy Some Damn Art is one of my wonderful sponsors (see yonder sidebar). if you don’t know about BSDA already here’s a quick rundown – every week Kate curates online shows featuring affordable original art from up-and-coming artists that you can buy, dammit! and buy you should. the latest artists to be featured is Sara Barnes, whose mixed media collages are right up my alley. Sara’s work draws inspiration from cubism, surrealism and especially Matisse’s cut outs. read more about her process here.
I’m a nosy person, and love looking at how people choose to adorn their space. Studies have been done about much insight about a person can be done by simply looking at the contents of their bedroom. This series is a reflection of that interest, and also my love of art/illustration/media that is “slice of life,” which could be touted as cliche and overwrought, but I find fascinating all aspects that are beneath the surface.
