Not only has Kate bequeathed copious amounts of love and affection on Mr. Zigglez, our lil hard-workin’ B/D office mascot (which makes her good in my books) she has won all of our respect here at B/D for her amazing bit-mapped B/D graphics, lovely blog posts, and sharp as nails design sensibility! We will miss you terribly Kate. We were not so sure, seeing as your boyfriend Matt interned here first and is a very hard act to follow. Just kidding! We were sure you would totally be better than him. Just kidding! We love you both equally. Thanks again! Check out Kate’s amazing design portfolio here and view some of her works after the jump!
New York based artist Nick van Woert’s sculptures are great- I love the Potato Head!
Sarah Roesink from across the pond in London, photographs her surroundings. We really enjoy her series, as they seem to be so… not spontaneous, but .. normal. In a good way. Like she takes her camera and her skills with her wherever she goes and photographs with a series in mind that she decides while she’s walking past a field.
Patricia Eichert, of Denmark, has a colorful, otherworldly way of photography. It took us a split-second (or more..) to determine if the models above were Christmas mannequins from the 60’s or something else, awesomely contemporary. Her very posed images make for conversation, speaking about youth, beauty, situations and to be human.
Awesome paper sculptures from Dutch artist Karen Sargsyan.
Kris Knight’s portraits are presented in such a settled and graceful manner, yet underneath the surface of the subjects in question, he is able to portray various feelings of awe and mystery. Who are these characters who candidly stare back at the viewer? Such hidden emotions are portrayed through a muted color palette and calculated brushstrokes, giving the viewer plenty to look at, yet with a feeling of wanting to know more.
Super Nova Warehouse is featuring works by artists Yami Duarte and Jason Redwood in a show titled Acrux (an optical double star whose certain mass and brightness is speculated to cause a supernova 321 lightyears from our solar system- tight).
