Colorful Patterning

Portland, Maine-based artist Joe Kievitt’s abstract works are what he describes as “drawings with ink and acrylic on paper.” I call it colorful patterning at its best. He uses tape that he cuts at various widths with a custom-made tool to isolate areas for ink and paint washes to be applied. The patterns in each piece are perfectly imperfect (which happens to be my favorite kind). The asymmetrical works are done by hand and become an anxiety-ridden process due to working with unforgiving mediums such as ink and liquid paint. The outcome, however, is well worth it.

If I Ever Go to Copenhagen, I Know Where I'm Going...

Restaurant Radio was highlighted on Remodelista today and I couldn't help but repost it because (a) I love their aesthetic, (b) I love their vision + purpose, and (c) the food looks amazing!

The restaurant is owned by "gastronomic entrepreneur" Claus Meyer, who has a bevy of sustainable farms and restaurants in the Nordic world. Additionally, he serves as host of "New Scandinavian Cooking" - a food and travel series targeting an international audience. Meyer believes that eating more vegetables and less meat is a precondition for health and a sustainable future, and refers to this attitude as "hedonistic sustainability."

Not an innovative idea, just plain smart.

Design: Collaboration between Graphic Designer Christina Meyer Bengtsson and the young Danish design firm HolmbackNordentoft
Floors: Douglas Fir treated with White Soap + Lye from Danish Company Dinesen
Slab Chairs by Tom Dixon
Flatware: Normann Copenhagen
Chandelier: Moooi

Winter Project - Wall Installation

I ran across this really cool idea from ixxi - a modular connecting system for large wall installations. I am going to take this idea and make my own large wall mural this winter. I just need to find the right image. Will keep you posted on progress and the final result...

Recognize the Work, Never Knew the Artist

I was just putting together a holiday card for the ole boyfriend's sister when I ran across the artist Robert Motherwell. I recognize his pieces but never knew him by name so I did a little googling. Motherwell is an American painter, printmaker and editor. He was one of the youngest of the New York School (a phrase he coined), which also included Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and Philip Guston. Now I am not going to copy and paste the whole wikipedia entry - you can read it here. I am just going to post a few pieces of his work. Enjoy!
