Starting today, I'll be working my way through Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth". 1-2 pages at a time, I'll be posting my daily progress through this book as a reference for myself, and for you all!
I know figure drawing is intimidating to me, and to many other artists out there, so I figured (lol) I'd try this out in hopes of improving my own style, as well as helping other artists ✏️

Apologies for the lack of posts but I’ve been horribly ill the last few days. I have been trying to get out of the house though and wanted to share one of my favourite little souvenir shops here. It’s got some inspirational textiles, jewelry and trinkets. Hoping to get better and get back to my art!! On another note, we have our move finalized. We’ll be traveling through Hoi An, Vietnam then Hong Kong before going back to the states.
Laziness can actually be quite beautiful. 🤗
It will be about a week with color pigments under the nails, looking like the wicked witch of the east, but who's got that extra minute to go and grab a glove? #aintnobodygottimeforthat
My dad gave me his old deck of tarot cards when I was young, and I've always loved the beautiful art and symbolism of the cards. Thinking about doing a series of artwork inspired by each of the major arcana, but not sure I've got the commitment for such a big project! Let me know if that's something you'd like to see. 😊

Here comes the installation we made -Silent Black. It was inspired by , written by Maurice Maeterlinck. The creeping conversation between twelve blinds creates stillness within their motions, it made death into the sound of silence.
In the middle of pale white ice cubes, the dark black remained silence, covering all those words and lines.
When ice cubes melt into water, what were left behinds were - “The sound of a soul that can only be heard within a moment of silence.“

In 2011, Swedish performance-, installation- and videoartist Klara Lidén was nominated for our price.
This is a picture of her subversive cinematic work which opened the exhibition in the Hamburger Bahnhof: We saw the artist seated at a writing table in an austere white room, a kind of “white cube,” before she finally disappeared into a trash bin before the viewer’s eyes. This incisive short film provoked, posed riddled. The grotesque qualities of Lidén’s films have been associated with the silent film aesthetic, the works of Buster Keaton for example. But our sense of bafflement goes deeper, involves an interrogation not just of the meaning of artistic existence and the mechanisms of the art market (of which art prizes are an element), but even more so of human existence as such. Everything comes to an end. What remains, as Klara Lidén makes absolutely clear, are objects: the devices and apparatuses of work, even a bushel of weeds, which occupy every culture, and in the long-term, overgrow them as well.
