hello again! ok, i love this room, but tell me you don’t wanna put something on one of those beautiful, empty white walls?

well, i sure do – so here we go:

whoa. the dizzying circles of canadian artist sarah gee. the top two images are huge, paper-cut pieces. perfectly cut paper circles layered on top of each other. the bottom two are drawings – yes, drawings! sarah invented a home made drawing machine (genius?!) and uses graphite and ink to create the most perfect drawings you could ever hope for. (see sarah & the machine in action)

so, when i was in san francisco last march, i popped by gallery hijinks, and was beyond thrilled to see this work in person:

gah! i love these mixed media collage/drawings oh so much. they are the work of new york based artist matthew craven, and a set of four of them would be amazing in here, no?

so, when i saw this room, the very first thing that popped into my head was this:

a lamp made from folding, wooden fabric. yep, you heard me. this piece, titled ‘miss maple’, is by german artist/designer elisa strozyk, and i think it’s absolutely perfect for this space – granted, your dinner guests might spend most of the evening looking up in awestruck silence, instead of making polite dinner conversation.

speaking of dinner conversation – these two ladies might bring things to a screeching hault:

now, normally i only show three options for every art goes here post, but i just had to include these! i absolutely love these large scale oil paintings by american artist jenny morgan. ok sure, your guests might feel a little nervous being stared at by these odd beauties, but it’s soooo worth it! and on that note, i think i’ll just sit here quietly until the next post. let me know where you’d like me to hang art. see you soon ~ danielle {aka the jealous curator}

  1. love the collages! the little splash of colour really makes them pop!
    that lamp is quite something too!

    I love your picks for this room. I especially love Matthew Craven’s work. Thanks for introducing me to his work!

    Another gem! Love all of them!

    It’s always fun visiting your space. I’m torn between the lamp and the portraits of the girls with the gloves. I can almost hear the dinner talk.

  6. Holly says:

    This is really fun! All the choices are interesting, but my fav has to be the lamp. How cool!

  7. Geez it has been too long since I have stopped by. You have a beautiful new website V. I just love it. I must say those circles kinda make ya dizzy… :) What a fun post.

  8. thanks everyone! i’m so happy that you’re liking these posts… because i LOVE doing them! ; )

    That lamp is absolutely awsome! I would love that in my home. Such a pitty it is not for sale.

    Adore the particular collages! the miscroscopic dash involving coloration truly makes them pop!
    in which lamp is pretty some thing as well!

    Sara Gee’s works are amazing! Even more so once I watched the video of her creating one; it was hypnotizing to watch and hear her at work.
