Molly Bosley emailed me just as I sat down last night to dive into blog posts. I have to say, I was relieved. As much as I enjoy blogging, I also like a good distraction as much as the next person. Molly's dioramas are not only a welcome distraction, but thoughtful and visually poetic as well. Recently, she has been exploring the art of paper cutting, known as Scherenschnitte ( which loosely translated from German it means 'scissor cuts'). Through this medium Molly has started to reinterpret her wildly, visual dreams through the medium. As she says so eloquently:
"Utilizing silhouette images of the commonplace and the eerie, I record glimpses into the narrative of a life lived in dreams"
I've included in this post some of her other paper cuts, I just couldn't resist. The detail is exquisite. Molly recently opened an etsy shop where you can purchase her dioramas and other work. See all of her work on her flickr page.
just wanted to post about the nikki mcclure's traveling art show vote for survival that opened on the 10th of october at needles & pens. all photos were taken by andrew, co-proprietor of n+p. the show closes on november 10th. see more pics of the show here. not to be missed whether in person or online.
vote for survival is an art tour traveling by train, making stops on the west coast: olympia, san francisco, los angeles. the show features a series of limited-edition signs, silk-screened on wood signboards and is a call to action-a reminder of what is really important as this election nears. original paper cuts will also be exhibited, including artwork from the 2009 "wake up" calendar, book covers, and new work inspired by the summer of berries and boats.
let's get lost, sarajo frieden's solo show at rare device opens october 2nd in san francisco. in this show sarajo explores getting lost metaphorically, finding inspiration and creating as an end result. sarajo was super kind to send over a few images for you to see. sarajo's new work is so colorful and lush. a few of the pieces in the show will have opposable parts. how exciting. to learn more visit sarajo's website, blog or rare device.
