Color Collective is pretty much my new favourite.

Created as a colour resource guide for designers, the blog serves up some of the most stunning images, fashions and artists’ works alongside beautiful palettes.

Honestly I feel pretty silly that I hadn’t known about this site sooner.

Two weekends in a row J and I have been to the river.

Of course, I didn’t bring my camera to take pictures because J didn’t think it was safe to bring valuables into the canoe with us. He’s a smart man… so you can blame him for the lack of photographs.

This leaves the score: summer fun: 2 :: blog: 0

 Brooklyn artist Spencer Finch utilizes light and colour in his installations to re-create moments of “light”. Most of his pieces specify a certain time and place in which he is attempting to re-create the light of that specific moment.

I recently used Finch’s work as an inspiration for my science class that I teach to 2 year olds. Even as young as they were, the students really began to experiment and think about how light and colour effect the way we visually interact with our environment.

I’ve definitely been flyin’ like paper these past few weeks as I’m sure everyone noticed by my drought of posts. (I wasn’t getting high like planes though, don’t judge me) Sometimes I’m just a terrible blogger, what can I say? Anyways, I’m back in business and I definitely don’t have a shortage of lovely things to share.

Brace yourselves, is all I have to say.

Love XI, Collage, 2006

When I first saw these images, I was rendered speechless.

British artist John Stezaker… what can I say… just amazing.

 

John Stezaker - Cinema 1 I   - The Approach

Cinema 1 I, Collage, 2005

Stezaker makes collages of old images–classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations–into new images.

I can’t even imagine the pain he must have felt cutting up old bromides–I was almost emotional looking at this work just thinking about destroying these images to create new ones.

John Stezaker - Mask LXV  - The Approach

Mask LXV, 2007

If you’re lucky enough to be in London right now he has an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery that you should go to and tell me all about so I can live vicariously through you (please).

 

*note: apparently  “Steaz,” “Steaze,” or “Steazy” has a variety of meanings according to more urban sources. I simply shortened the artist’s name because I wanted to sound gangster and clever, and I am not implying any other meaning by this hyphenation other than to be witty.

Obviously I was ill this past week, which is why I didn’t post something super awesome last Sunday.

I’m not 100% yet but I’m over being sick (mentally).

So incubus of viral plague or not, I am giving you TWO posts to make up for it.

No need for applause, though I do enjoy the encouragement.
