Long time no see! I’ve been basically The Busiest Ever. Endless summer days and nights of fully trying to enjoy my summer. We’ve been hanging out at the beach and the park and going on long walks basically nonstop. This is the perfect time of year for that kind of thing. It’s been super hot over the past couple of weeks, but that only adds to it, because it’s perfect beach weather (even if I’m still too chicken to get in our freezing north Atlantic water past my ankles…). Anyway, here are some photos from my phone!
Okay now the real reason that I’ve been so busy. I’ve been working and helping out my friend Judith Klausner create an art popup shop in Somerville called the Curiosity Shop! It’s REALLY excellent. I’ve been helping out with building/arranging/moving furniture, working in the shop on weekends, and just everything else that needs to be done. Seeing Judith achieve something so stunning and wonderful has been basically the best thing ever.
If you live in the Boston area, please come check it out! It’s REALLY amazing – part art gallery, part natural history museum, part antique store… It’s worth coming to at least dig around in the piles of treasure! And if you come on Saturdays or Sundays, chances are you’ll see me, come say hi!
I recently came across the art of Lucas Lasnier aka PARBO. His art is breathtakingly and vividly organic, his use of colors superb. I’m so inspired by his work, by the shapes, the bright colors, the softness, and the fact that he works in acrylic paint! Inspired by skateboard culture, heavy metal, and street art, Lucas paints surrealist images in both small and large scale, everything from package design to murals.
When I look at his work it reminds me of a beautiful dream. His work is a glimpse into a wonderful world full of skulls and splotches and nature, a candy-colored experience. Check it out here!
