Multi Dimensional

Tierney Gearon remains one of my favorite artists. And with her latest work Tierney Gearon just took it to whole other level -- she went for something new, it worked out AND the viewers love the new work.
Both my bud Emily Shur and Liz Kuball recently wrote very eloquent pieces about Tierney Gearon's work. Find Em's writing on her blog: My Four Eyed Fantasy and Liz's at Ahorn.
You can see Tierney Gearon's work at ACE Gallery in L.A. through April 2009.

And if Tierney Gearon's latest work appeals to you & you are in New York today or tomorrow, don't miss out on seeing Helen Sear's celebrated show at Klompching Gallery in Dumbo.
Different in many ways, these two talented female artists however explore similar ideas, no doubt capturing the current Zeitgeist.

Arctic Circle

My Destination ©Nina Corvallo

As I mentioned I have a lot going on these days. One project that I am prepping for is my trip to Lapland. This is something I have wanted to do since childhood.
Partially because of this adventure the blog will continue to be a bit spotty. Bare with me please.

Jordan Awan

Whimsical gets me every time. The other day at Fishs Eddy while shopping for a bigger teapot (I found an excellent stainless steel one made in Japan), I came across a series of dishes designed by Jordan Awan -- a talented illustrator and artist. You can check out his work here: www.jordanawan.com. If you like the dishes you can order them via his site or purchase them at Fish Eddy's on Broadway in New York.
