Tinlark Gallery

{artwork by Brooks Shane Salzwedel}
I received a very nice email from Cris McCall, the director of Hollywood based gallery, Tinlark. Tinlark represents some amazing artists. But Cris particularly wanted to introduce to me the art by Brooks Shane Salzwedel. I wasn't  familiar with it, but I'm glad I'm now. Still I hope to see this beautiful work in real one day. Brooks creates graphite drawings on Duralar, then pours on a layer of resin, then repeats that process 2 more times and the result is a deeply layered, thoroughly mesmerizing treasure you see in the images above. 
{hand-painted bottles by Laura Normandin}
Other work that I was familiar with is from Laura Normandin. Laura is Kansas where she grew up listening to old country music and creating. She moved to New York to go to Cooper Union and now lives in Park Slope Brooklyn. She crochets in winter and drinks beer in the summer. and her business is called WrenHandmade, named after an old doberman.
Finally two paintings also available via TinLark Gallery are these two from Ramis Kim and Drew Beckmeyer, Beautiful!! Thanks Cris!

Joel Henriques

Today Bloesem will be all about artwork and paintings. I know how hard it is to find something for your walls that fits with your furniture and will look nice after 20 years...Joel Henriques is an artist who paints modern still lifes and abstracts. He says he has always been fascinated by color, shape and craftsmanship, like textures, technique, and hands-on care that can be seen in art.  I agree with him totally. Here you can find Joel Henriques' whole collection!

Via Kathleen Hill's website I found this fun online shop from the UK, Pedlars, love  the fully reconditioned 'Target' telephone and the numbered teatowels. Have fun browsing through their shop, while I will start working on a wonderful new Special Read about two ceramic artists, which will be shown on Bloesem later this week. Also I will be finishing a special project I'm working on with the people from DaWanda, the cool market place for unique products by independant artists and of course I will be posting on BloesemKids today, right here. Hope to see you back tomorrow!
