Did a quick study/drawing of my ’78 Hasselblad. Will be doing a painting next.
Today I got to visit the Dr. Oliver Bronson in the city of Hudson. Seldom do they open the doors for the public, so I feel very lucky to have experienced it this weekend. Adding to the treat, the city invited 3 known artists to show within the house’s walls. The artist chose not to be tagged and titled as any other gallery, making each piece blend exquisitely with the historic home.
Valerie Hammond’s pop of color and delicate work felt like a door into a dark and fascinating (sometimes terrifying) world. It really enhanced the surrealness of the environment surrounding it.
Kiki Smith’s drawings where really fragile yet depicted some interesting and complex characters. They where a perfect fit with its harsh yet beautiful home.
Seton Smith’s photographs displayed the hazy beauty of this grand structure. A great compliment to the exhibit.
I was incredibly please and enjoyed every minute of this gem. Thank you Hudson for organizing such a great group of artist, they were made for this historic property.
Built in 1812, the Dr. Oliver Bronson’s was declared a national historical landmark in 2003 and has been going through renovations since. If you want to help and become part of this incredible piece of history’s facelift, you can make a donation to Historic Hudson, Inc.
Fun Fact: The Oliver-Bronson house was in the 2012 Bourne Legacy film as Shearing’s (Rachel Weisz) home.
Just stumbled upon Lou Ros‘s work on Behance. Love his style.
While Google searching for Birds, a simple painting of tini red birds and a small figure caught my eye and led me to Kristiana Pärn’s website. This girl is super talented and I Love her work. She does everything!! pretty amazing and very inspiring. I hope I run into one of her pieces while visiting galleries. Check out her paintings, photos, design, flash animations, videos, and so on and so on… dang girl!
you can also buy her work on ETSY.
Here’s a good example of a person who inspires and motivates me to draw. Check out Lynn Greiveldinger‘s work and keep an eye out for this young artist.
Born and raised in Luxembourg, Lynn Greiveldinger discovers her love of drawing at a very young age. The tiniest piece of paper becomes a canvas in her eyes and she spends most of her childhood drawing people and animals.
At the age of 19 Lynn moves to Paris in order to study graphic design and illustration which helps her develop the conceptual part of her work. She combines her love of art and traveling and spends 6 months in New York with painter, poster artist and freelance illustrator Tara McPherson.
After graduating in 2007, Lynn has been working on several projects in both the music and the fashion industry, as well as commissioned portraits and her first solo exhibition.
Lynn finds her inspiration in people that she is fascinated by – famous or not – and their feelings. Her work mostly represents individuals out of a specific context, occasionally in the company of an animal or holding an object.
She is currently working on her second solo exhibition which is going to feature drawings and acrylic paintings.
