Sarah House









We were introduced to the stunning work of Sarah House through the WoArt blog by Christina Massey (check it out!); we were instantly impressed at her ability to create such soft forms with clay, as well as a perfect geometric form and textures mimicking nature. She is a skilled artist exploring interaction and relationships between art and natural macrocosm. 

Working primarily with ceramic materials, Sarah House creates abstract sculpture inspired by the fractal nature of the nature. House earned her BFA from Tyler School of Art, and her MFA from Tulane University. She has participated in Artist in Residence programs in Baltimore, Maine, Montana, Hungary, Iceland, Taiwan, Denmark and Chile. House is a Windgate Fellow, a Nyburg Fellow, and has been recognized globally for her work. House currently resides in New Orleans creating works in her Mid-city Studio.

Sarah elaborates on her work:

My works are an investigation of pattern, form and interconnectedness. Through ceramic sculpture I explore the ways in which nature expresses itself through fractals. The similarities between different naturally occurring fractal patterns fills me with a profound feeling of interconnection with nature. In making works inspired from this theme, I hope to show others the innumerable connections throughout the natural world. I will be successful when my audience then notices these patterns all around them, and feels they are connected to something greater than themselves.

Jo Illustrates!

Work featuring great color, architecture, an eye for design, and fun shops?! Yes please! If this intrigues you as much as us, check out Jo Illustrates! Jo Illustrates! is a project by a Sydney based artist who dabbles in illustration; she draws inspiration from a past life of studying graphic design and architecture, working in a graphic style that is detail orientated. Jo was kind enough to give us some insight into how she approaches her work: I use a combination of copic markers, paint pens and felt tip markers in my work and find the materials I use inform the type of art I create. Almost as if they are in charge and it's my job to figure out how to form an image from their application. I find approaching my art in this way is not only expressive, but methodical and puzzle like.  I am inspired by architecture, music, travel, design, pattern and colour. You can see more of her work on Instagram   @_jo_illustrates or on Etsy  http://w

Nancy Gruskin

  Modern still life and figural paintings capturing the beauty in daily experiences, Nancy Gruskin's work creates a narrative with beautiful brushwork and use of color. We love the gestural quality and implied forms  of her work, adding a fresh perspective to classic still lives.  Nancy Gruskin is a figurative and still life painter from Concord, Massachusetts.   She received a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Connecticut College and an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Art History from Boston University.   After teaching architectural history for several years, she now devotes herself to painting full-time.   Her paintings emerge from everyday experiences and familiar views and are based on direct observation, photographs, invention and memory.   Gruskin has shown her work across the United States and has an upcoming exhibition in Australia.   She teaches painting at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts.    More of her work can be viewed at www.nancygruskin.com
