Here you go! Design by me for an upcoming art exhibition at I.M.A.G.E Gallery in New York. On November 23rd you can enjoy "Voyage: A Tale Of Two Cities" with original art by Swedish painter Anders Malmberg and New York based artist Julia Kito Kirtley. DJ Lord Finesse and SnowBKLYN will spin records while you enjoy the art. I am pretty sure it will be a good way to spend your Sunday in the city.
My client Melanie Smith was in need of new professional images for her website which is now up and running (check it out at www.melaniesmithwll.com). My shoot with Melanie was amazing. After years as an established actress in Hollywood starring in TV-shows like Melrose Place, Seinfeld, Startrek, Matlock, Curb Your Enthusiasm and more, it was a pleasure working with her. This is a few of the portraits she is using for her website.
I am very happy with the result of this 3D-poster. It turned out just the way I had envisioned it and I had a lot of fun constructing it. The materials I used was a thin piece of wood, white paint, nails, hammer and a little bit of thread. It looks amazing in different types of light as well. This poster was a part of my senior show at the Sarah Paley Gallery at Moore College of Art & Design. I will post images of the show later on.
-Uncoated paper, leaves, flowers, onion peels, and eucalyptus leafs sandwiched between cardboard box pieces. Take anything from nature or your fridge, that you think will add beautiful color to the paper.
-Tie it all together with rusty iron pieces.
-Place in a big pot of boiling water with white vinegar, more rusty metal pieces and oak nuts. Make sure the paper is below surface, it wants to float up, but that's why you tie it to iron pieces (do this outside or in a well ventilated area).
-Allow to boil for apx. 1 hour
-Let paper dry on a big towel.
And voila! You have a beautiful hand dyed paper. It's beautiful to frame, just the way it is, or write a poem and surprise a near & dear one or use it for book binding. I learned this from fine artist and photographer Leslie Marsch.
