Flash Storms of Art for the Visually Addicted
    0 0

    Out of town visitors arrived yesterday and at that very moment, the electricity went out in our house.  Fortunately, we had planned to grill steak.   Crisis averted.

    Artist Jo Hamilton knows how to keep things loose.  Her crocheted portraits are twisted and fun.

    Night Light (Jessica)Jiminy Cricket the grocery store was crowded this afternoon! Easter feasting is clearly in the offing.  The sheer number of products and brands available has become overwhelming to me.  The olive oil section alone takes up half of an aisle!  While abundance is a first class problem from which our country suffers, I am a bit nostalgic for simpler times when selecting a loaf of bread was a choice between wheat or white.  But then again, life is a series of choices…

    I’m hard pressed to pick my favorite with regards to the work of Chelsea Gibson.  Her work strikes a perfect balance between vibrant and nonchalant.

    denim-art-ian-berry-1

    I’m a pretty upbeat person, fueled mainly by what some might view as an annoying curiosity about just about everything.  The one thing that can get on my last nerve though, is persistant cloud cover.  I realize it is tedious to talk about the weather, but since it is Monday, I’m giving myself license to complain.  Nashville has been one dreary place for the past MONTH and SPRING just needs to go ahead and get here!!!

    Young and brilliant artist, Ian Berry, knows how to shake the blues.  His portraits and landscapes are made ENTIRELY of discarded denim.  I’m going to slip into my Hudson’s now and face the day!

    Henrik Kerstens’ favorite subject to photograph is his daughter, Paula.  Her face serves as an excellent centerpiece to his original compositions and costumes.

    As an Intagram participant, and a mother of teenagers, I’m more than familiar with the “selfie”.  For those of you in the social media dark, this is the term for a photo taken of ones “self” and published out to friends and the other 3 billion people on earth with access to the internet.  The tell-tale sign of a “selfie” is a right arm jutting out in the lower left hand side of the frame indicating that the subject is holding their phone to take the picture.  Here is an example:

    450px-Ameily_radke_es_vato!!

    The Selfie

    Artist Joanne Arnett has focused on another genre.  Her mug shot series is brilliant in both concept and execution.  Her works are meticulously handwoven representations of actual mug shots.  Nothing “insta” about about it.
