I thought that this piece was really interesting because it is incorporated directly with the architecture. It makes the furniture look like it is naturally a part of the home. I also think it kind of looks like a chair was placed behind a sheet and pushed forward.

I thought this installation piece was amazing. At first glance I wasn’t sure what it was made of but when I read the description I realized that it was carved out of glass to loo like scenes from nature, such as a coral reef.

Shany Leib  produces glass components for her work (the process of their formation can be viewed on her website). Then she makes them beautiful, looked like a coral reef cut from the work. I did not think that such a beautiful, undulating installations could be done from glass, the colour within them is stunning.

I have always loved street art and I have come across images of these little sculptures throughout the years and always think they are hilarious and so creative!

I always tell myself the good stuff to see in cities is UP. Look up, look up, look up. But here a very good reason to check the floor sometimes too ;)

This piece gives the feeling of walking through the sky, but it’s indoors. It is an interesting way to stimulate people’s minds because you don’t normally find yourself brushing past clouds in your living room.

The installation piece with the lamps and fans that I posted before this reminds me of a project my uncle David Tica worked on using lights and cords. This is one of his pieces.

I love the way this artist uses light to create a dynamic shadow wall. The shadows are different shades which creates a lot of dimension and interest.

Lino Print Self Portrait

image

This is a self portrait made from a stamp carved out of a block of linoleum. I started by sketching out a self portrait based on a photograph of myself. I drew on a piece of tracing paper and then transferred the image onto my linoleum block. We then used lino carving tools to carve out parts of the block to create white space on our images. I chose to use contour lines arrange in a volumetric pattern to create interest and dimension. This technique ended up making my image look kind of tribal, which I was not expecting but was not disappointed by. I also used cross hatching on the neck, eyelids and sunglasses in order to create a more interesting composition. I think that my print looked best in black ink printed on white paper because the image really pops. I am very happy with the way my portrait turned out and I hope you like it too!
