Inspired – Marie Cameron

The American painter and mixed media artist Marie Cameron started this beautiful series, called #morerainbows!, during the pandemic.

Here’s what she describes this creative project:

My #morerainbows! series, which started during the pandemic, was a daily search for connection, hope, wonder and joy in which I embroidered silk rainbows onto found, vintage photographs. I felt the need for all of us to be able to see the rainbows in ourselves, in each other and in our world.

Inspired – Josh Huxham

So inspired!

I really enjoyed “Silence” series by the UK artist Josh Huxham. The simple juxtaposition of two vintage photos give an exquisite surreal final result.

This is how the artist describes this body of works:

Josh’s work seeks the inner thoughts which we do not share in order to avoid protest. After developing a strong connection with his heritage through archiving historic photographs and other family relics, Josh continued to explore the vernacular, allowing him to form relationships in a space in which he feels visible.

‘Silence’ aims to extricate a sense of belonging within a dysfunctional family. The work expresses an essence of feeling invisible to those who are closest to us. To those who are as yet unaware.

This week it’s all about vintage and embroidery. Enjoy the wonderful hand stitched works by the designer and illustrator Laura McKellar, realised over printed retro portraits.

Inspired – Isabelle Cordemans

Inspiring!

Enjoy the elegant dada collage interventions realised with found images and vintage photos by the Belgian artist Isabelle Cordemans.

Inspired – David Delruelle

Inspired!

This week I want to highlight the superb “Fragment” series by the Brussels-based artist David Delruelle. I simply love the clever and minimal “tear” interventions on these vintage photos.

There is also an intriguing conceptual use of the memory re-appropriation, that is pretty close to my personal way to see art and collages.
