Modern Gifts

Noodles, seitan, vegetables, inspiration & friendship © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Last night we met Minette and Matt at an opening and after Minette suggested we eat at Pan Asian bistro Noodle Bar.
We had never been and it was such a treat! The food is fresh, there are lots of vegge options and this open kitchen restaurant has a great vibe. Over noodles Minette and I spoke about art, and she mentioned that I should look at the work of Indonesian born artist Fiona Tan.
You can see work by Fiona Tan at: www.fionatan.nl and also at her London gallery's site: www.frithstreetgallery.com.
Disorient, Vox Populi Tokyo and Cloud Island are just some of the works by Fiona Tan that stand out to me - they feel at once familiar and novel, personal and universal.

I spent a couple of hours with a friend and came home loaded with gifts: friendship, inspiration and a new favorite place to eat!
Thank you, Minette.
