I'm Back!

Forgive me readers for I've been busy. It's been 2 month since my last post, 2 months since I got a solid night's sleep, and 2 months since I got an actual workout in.... You see, in the past 2 months, we sold our house, packed, moved to a new place, unpacked, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years (I probably shouldn't even mention the New Years part, as I pathetically fell asleep at 9:30p.m. and woke up at 7a.m. the next day, missing the entire celebration). So, to correct myself, I've had one solid night's sleep in the past 2 months. All this while training at my new job working on developing concepts and trend forecasting for 2014.
I'm not complaining, as 2013 has been transformational for me in many areas of my life, and I feel like I've come out a stronger person for it. With my awesome partner who is truly my best friend and my biggest fan, and two amazing kids who mean the world to me, I'm prepared to take on 2014 with new commitments, new goals, and of course, new posts.

To start off the year on a bright note, I'd like to share with you Pantone color of the year for 2014: Radiant Orchid.

Enjoy!

"Fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a psycho-therapeutic support vehicle, exploring the mind's dream-cape", artist Tran Nguyen creates surreal works depicting women resting among buildings. Working in color pencils with thin acrylic glazes, Nguyen masterfully conveys a sense of romanticized nostalgia by delicately portraying her subjects in peculiar compositions, allowing us a glimpse into the intimate worlds of her characters. Nguyen was born in Vietnam but currently lives and works in Georgia. View her entire portfolio here.

Enjoy!

Influenced by her past career as a professional ballet dancer, artist Kylli Sparre of Sparrek creates surreal, conceptual photography, based on her observations and experiences. Her subjects are posed in what seems to be a choreographed fashion to form strange and poetic compositions, conveying a dream-like state of mind. 

Enjoy!

In their new sculpture series DURAMEN, conceptual designers Remy Clemente and Morgan Maccari present frames. While generally relegated to the background of art exhibits, in this case frames are rendered in full focus, seemingly taking on a life of their own. Meticulously carved, the empty wooden frames appear in various forms of the melting process. Cleverly designed, the duo break the properties of the compound, where often the overlooked object becomes art itself.  

Enjoy!
