Enough about moving and life changes and all that. I must take a moment to obsess about Studio Numen. If you look at their rings, you'll find objets that epitomize what I love: little, strange, beautiful, unique, and non-functional things with a touch of fairyland/the ancient world. I wonder how much one is... Here is the "DaVinci Towers":
In a similar vein, but with a different medium, is Jamie Zollars. I found out about her art when a friend gave me one of her postcards. Now I am eagerly awaiting her online store - so I can buy art that will warp my future children! This is the postcard I received, titled "Tengu" - Tengu, do you know why this is? I don't see any Japanese spirits on this one - but don't you love the demonic looking pink bunny?
Finally, my sister has a book on HeQi and I recently saw a showing of his at my future alma mater. He's an extraordinary Chinese artist with a vision for re-casting the Christian faith so that it is no longer Euro-centric but newly realized in Asian cultures. Here's his painting of Paul on the road to Damascus: I love that Paul is depicted as a traditional Chinese warrior.
That's all for now. Hope you've enjoyed this art pause.
