Portraits by Claire Tabouret

i love these portraits by French artist Claire Tabouret, which are actually pretty spooky – perhaps fitting for Halloween… most of these portraits are from a series called ‘Makeup’. “The artist works based on photographs, drawing upon her personal archives as much as anonymous clichés harvested during her research, capturing figures frozen…

Clara Adolphs

there’s something about Australian artist Clara Adolphs’ work that reminds me of Mad Men – her paintings are almost like very melancholy versions of the famous Carousel scene. she’s represented by MiCK and you can see a nice little studio visit with her here.

OVERGROWTH by photographer Parker Fitzgerald and floral designer Riley Messina

Overgrowth

Brian Calvin

Brian Calvin

i won’t hesitate to say that Brian Calvin is one of my favourite artist discoveries in a while. wow, i love his pieces SO MUCH. i don’t know what it is about them, maybe i see myself in these huge, graphic, goofy looking portraits – some of the girls are almost on the…

François Henri Galland

François Henri Galland

last week i hung some pictures in our apartment. Anton has lived there since 2010 and i moved in a few years ago – and till last week there were hardly any pictures up. which is crazy, right? considering how much i love art and surrounding myself with it. i…

Kim McCarty

Kim McCarty

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.

Alan Reid

Alan Reid is an artist based in NYC who works with colour pencils. reading up about him i discovered, his representational images of heiresses, bored fashionistas and aquiline beauties that have been called provocatively light, with coloring as delicate as his women are elegant. The work invites reasoning, provocation and…

Mes Dames A/W 12

it goes without saying that i fell in love with the Mes Dames A/W 12 campaign the minute i saw it, since it so beautifully combines my love for classic fashion and art. shot by photographer Anna Malmberg, the campaign takes inspiration from 19th century oil portraits and especially the…

Crown

Georgian photographer Mariam Sitchinava is oft-covered around these parts, so it’s no surprise that i’m keen to share her lovely new project Crown: This project expresses my desire of depicting women’s inner colour pallete alongside with their beautifullness with the help of flora. Thirteen Georgian girls aging 17 to 23 had…
