Jeremiah Goodman

9 Jan

I love reading magazines such as House to Home, Livingetc and Wallpaper and I am frequently browsing online blogs dreaming of how I will decorate my own home, that is when I am able to afford my own home! I could talk at length about patterns, accessories, furniture and lighting, in fact I think I will begin to post more about interior design, but for now I am going to share some fantastic interior paintings created by the renowned artist Jeremiah Goodman.

Gregory Euclide

5 Jan

Gregory Euclide creates pieces I could look at for hours. Each piece appears to be incredibly complex and intricate. I particularly like the 3-Dimensional pieces which I have chosen to include images of below, but the website found here, is definitely worth having a look at as there are far too many amazing pieces to include on my blog!

Alexis Anne Mackenzie

5 Jan

The next few posts will show the work of artists, designers and creatives who I have discovered over the past few weeks. As collage is an area in which I am interested and a method that I use regularly to create designs within my sketchbook, I have previously blogged about the work of other collage artists but the subject area is very diverse. I find the work of Alexis Anne Mackenzie, particularly interesting and unusual. This is because the elements combined within the pieces (shown below) not only form subtle lettering but initially appear to portray beautiful organic images or patterns, this is until you realise there are ‘dark’ or ‘ugly’ elements such as eyeballs used within the pieces.

Alexa Meade

1 Nov

Today I discovered the incredible Alexa Meade. I think the idea behind Alexa Meade’s work is fantastic and the execution is equally brilliant. The  first two pieces shown below are of painted models in different settings. Following this the next images show 3-dimensional scenes complete with real life models and props painted and photographed to appear like a 2-dimensional painting.

Valerie Davide

28 Aug

Valerie Davide is an artist who creates work which is entirely different to my own. I like bright colour and despite my best efforts I am unable to draw or paint in a loose and relaxed manner.  Although Valerie Davide does a lot of life drawing (visible here) I prefer her animal pieces shown below.

Naomi Ito

24 Aug

The following bright and summery pieces are by Naomi Ito, a Japanese artist and textile designer who I first came across 2 years ago when I was just beginning my Textile Design degree at The University of Dundee.
