There should be a Sims type game where you’re a fashion designer and you can create your own models and the clothes they’ll wear, and plan fashion shows. I don’t play games, but I’d play the shit out of that.
"Ciervo Herido". Óleo sobre tela estampada y collage. 2014.
This is my new painting. I hate it.
being neutral isn’t being neutral
if you have the privilege of being neutral and you do it and stay silent, it only benefits the oppressors
your neutrality is literally never going to help those who are being crushed by an oppressive system
so don’t feel like you’re a good person for “not picking a side” because that oppressive system loves your passivity
Finish it, hide it away, and when you get it back out you’ll probably go “wow!”..maybe you need a break between finishing a painting and being able to see it with different eyes,without analyzing it…
You’re right! That’s exactly it (:
I always hate my paitings for a while after finishing them. Then I magically change my mind and start liking them, even if they’re not that good.
That girl you called annoying for making too many text posts at night? She lives alone, is single, and is allergic to cats.
I fucked up my painting last minute, so I slapped a huge plastic flower on the part I fucked up. It looks pretty, I think.
I’m about to finish a painting and I’ve been working on it for so long I honestly can’t tell whether it sucks or not. I never know what to think about my own work when it’s finished. I do things for the sake of doing them, not for the results.
Alasdair Thomson Sculpts Chic Summer Dresses from Marble
Talented sculptor Alasdair Thomson has recently created ‘The Identity Collection’, which is essentially a series of flirty and feminine dresses carved from marble. Each stunning dress in this collection is named after a woman, which makes the name of this fashion-based sculpture series extremely fitting. The Hannah, Carrie, Lucy and Greta do have something in common. Each of these realistically carved couture pieces looks soft and flowy, which is rather misleading given the material used to create them.
Artist Though painted with impressive skill, Mary Jane Ansell’s work is too stylized to be considered hyperrealist. Inspired by haute couture and classical portraiture alike, Ansell’s oil paintings are so pristine, they become slightly unsettling and even surreal. Pale, aristocratic female characters appear to mill about in elaborate gowns and ornate interiors, recalling the bored, upper-class protagonists of Jane Austen novels. But there is something off about these ladies. Their state of idleness begets intrigue and mischief. Ansell captures them making subtle gestures — toying with strange objects, trying on outfits or simply reposing. But their coy gazes seem to be aimed at someone outside of the viewers’ field of vision. Some characters’ eyes express surprise and others, longing, inviting us to create our own narratives about these mysterious, enchanting women.
