Here’s a lovely German artist to start your Thursday morning off right. Elisa Strozyk makes work that is beautiful and clean, but often seems to have a functional purpose. She creates wooden textiles, hand cuts her own wallpaper and even made a radiator that changes color as it heats up. Elisa has upcoming exhibitions in Frankfurt, Cologne and Milan.

Stumbled onto some delightfully curious paintings by Cassandra Simon last night that have the smoothly detailed qualities of a perfectly executed relief print. Robust with color, these images seem to be a mix of mystery and folklore.
