Look, No Hands!

Nature just astounds me.  Often, I find myself tuning in to something so common, yet so astounding when I think About how it was made. Take this bird nest, even with opposable thumbs and natures material at my finger tips, I would be hard presses to be able to obtain this detail and beauty.  And to think, all he has a a beak and some skinny feet. In my defense however, I have not been …

Trending Art

I find it fascinating that trends can surface in all areas of Design, Art and Fashion. One I don’t see as often is in paintings. Flipping through the pages of Elle Décor and Vogue Living in the same month, I stumbled across two paintings. One a final piece of art and the other looks like a uniquely painted wall. What’s nice is that they have the same trending color pallet. Both are unique, both beautiful, …

Industrial Helmut

Leave it to Helmut Lang to successfully hang this giant industrial thing resembling a car radiator in his store window. I just saw this hanging in his 70th and Columbus Avenue store on the Upper West side. I can’t say exactly why but it feels so appropriate and hip. Inside, his clothes are edgy, sophisticated and full of pure style.  I love that his brand is still under the radar enough to still be very cool. Helmut Lang …

Name that Thing…

What is this thing? I love it but I can’t decide if it is cake frosting, puff paint, wax or stone. Anybody know what this is? I think all it is missing is some glitter and macaroni.

Praha – History Revealed

Intertwined by flower and leaf motifs, lovely ladies and gentleman glare down from their pedestals on Prague historical architectural masterpieces. As I walked through the maze of wide massive walls, mighty towers, round arches and ornate colonnades I was mesmerized by all architectural styles coexisting side-by-side just waiting to be explored and wanting to tell its own story. It left me wondering about the years of craftsman putting their personal mark in history for me …

Oxidized Copper

MODERN ART The oxidation and patina on this copper cladding created an amazing colorfield. The fact that it is a natural chemical reaction really is just plain fascinating and that copper keeps getting better with age. The overall visual reminds me of some modernist paintings or the color palette of a turquoise stone. I also love the juxtaposition of the rigid geometry of panels with the organic coloration of each panel. It creates an artistic …

Visual Curse

So, I am having brunch on the les in Manhattan at Freeman’s Alley, a hip rustic joint filled with rough wood, taxidermy and loads of soul. I slip away to use the facilities, specifically, the rear w/c at the far side of the back bar. Looking down as I do, my visual curiosity starts its churn. I notice all the plain, battered and beaten stone tiles, perfectly aged and innocuous to the general eye. They …
