Fly Art

Fly Art

i use tumblr to keep up with a bunch of great art blogs, and this is how i discovered Fly Art. “a homage to the finer things in life: Art and Hip Hop.” you should go and trawl through the pieces, because the new names of the artworks are almost as great as the quotes themselves.

i love the watercolours of artist Kim McCarty. Working rapidly, at times using only a single color and at others a haunting, bruise-inspired palette of acid yellows, greens, and browns, McCarty’s portraits evoke the sense of uncertainty, ambivalence, anxiety, and loss with which we view today’s generation.

Her primary interest is the figured landscape and its relationship to memory—how universally recognizable places (beaches, family picnics, […]

Rites of Passage explores […]

Emily Ferretti

Emily Ferretti

i love the cool hued work of Aussie artist Emily Ferretti. she is represented by the Sophie Gannon Gallery. these pieces also appear in her book! Ferretti’s oil-on-linen paintings of plants, rocks, domestic settings, sporting ephemera and architectural details are remarkable for their lightness of touch and subtleties in process, tonality and mark making, sidling the […]
