Every so often I stumble across something that I find so astonishingly beautiful, so perfect (in my eyes), that I can't stop reading or listening to it or in this case I can't stop looking at the goregous details and materials of these romantic creations.
This is the work of designer/photographer Jenny Eve of Jevda, whose hand stitched couture garments are made from vintage laces, tassels, beads and textiles (from Uzbekistan, India, Afghanistan,etc.). Her influences include stong women from bygone eras, costumers such as Paul Poiret and designer Mariano Fortuny, foreign cultures, films, etc. I've included a few images here to share but I encourage you to visit Jenny Eve's blog to see more of her fantastic work.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! We will be enjoying a long weekend which includes celebrating a certain little boy's
seventh Birthday. As I mentioned in the previous post, I'll be back in December when my ornaments are ready with a shop update to follow :)
I've mentioned Artist John Frame on my blog before, and his ongoing project involving his stop motion animation film. I finally had the privilege of "experiencing" his work in person this week at the Portland Art Museum. The show includes his work in progress film and large photographs and his stunning figures all of which are achingly beautiful. There is something about Frame's pieces and way of non narrative storytelling that made me wish to experience it all privately without anyone around and to be able to hold, touch the figures. I can't recall the last time I was so impressed by a body of artwork~it truly is something special. Right now there are no plans for the show to travel but hopefully, with continued exposure, other museums across the country and beyond will decide to bring John Frames work to their city to be enjoyed by artists and non artists alike.
Above is short clip of a talk in which he discusses how this project came to be after a successful career as a sculptor and several years of a complete creative block. For a much more in depth lecture, visit the Portland Art Museum's website or click here. I also picked up his three exhibition catalogs, the latest includes gorgeous photographs from the show and a book I recommend adding to your library if you are inspired by his art.
