Joy & Design

Do anything, but let it produce joy.
“In The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, a nurse who works in end-of-life care reports that the single most common regret her patients express is that “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
- Excerpt From: Deresiewicz, William. “Excellent Sheep.”

David Lynch, film-maker, director, artist


Minna Katriina aka Nokkasili

Her  work is really beautiful and I had to share! You can see her paintings and drawings on her tumblr


Hubert Duprat: gold cocoon

To make gold cocoons with the help of caddisflies are insects adapted to life in freshwater … The larvae use to make their protective cases glitter of gold and semi-precious stones that the artist puts available to them in their aquarium.

Fall 2014 Editors Pick
just opened:

 George Boorujy

The Arsenal Gallery, Central Park, NYC
(830 Fifth Avenue at 64th Street, Third Floor)

a collection of George Boorujy’s dynamic large-scale paintings of North American animals with disarmingly human characteristics, as well as a series of his preliminary clay models and drawings. Boorujy’s hyperrealistic drawings recall the scientific detail of James John Audubon; however he takes liberties with the composition of his subjects, which adds a surrealistic element to his work. He begins his process by creating clay models to achieve slightly fantastic compositions unseen in nature, but that at the same time seem plausible. His extremely detailed portraits are rendered in ink on white paper backgrounds and can measure up to eleven feet long. The scale, meticulous craftsmanship and limited context encourage viewers to pause and see the animals as they never have before. - thru Oct 25

Artist Talk: October 13, 6pm
