aaaah this series of pools by US based artist Kristen Martincic is so cool – no pun intended. Kristen has been exploring the connection between the body and water in her recent work. be sure to check out her series of paper bathing suits as well.
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.
beautiful drawings by Spencer Studio extending scenes from vintage photographs.
i’ve been holding out on listening to the new Bon Iver album because i’ve been hearing so much about it online and fear a bit of a build up / let down situation. the same thing happens when i constantly hear about an amazing film, then usually end up only seeing it a year later when all the fuss has died down. i’m sure that the album is amazing and i have nothing to worry about… but, you know, it technically only drops on 21 june. sooo. let’s talk about it then shall we?
