Art in the home of Thereza Rowe
A: Art means to me… Creating things I daydream of. It makes me very happy both personally and professionally.
R: Reading books / blogs / magazines ... Such a relaxing activity… I’m reading Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro for the second time. It’s that good. Audiobooks have become a big thing for me as I get to ‘read / listen’ to ace books while I’m working.
Visiting my favorite blogs over a coffee break has got to be one of my favorite things to do.
T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… Just trends. Trends come and go… I think good work remains timeless. Personally, I tend to be inspired by the classic line, in whatever time or shape it may come.
A: Artists I admire are... Joan Miro, Alvin Lustig, Matisse and Frida Khalo to name a few.
N: Never will I ... Say never.
D: Dreams for my own work are about... Growth and happiness.
P: Projects I'm currently working on are... Album artwork for a Danish indie band amongst other things + obsessively playing with patterns and looking into possibilities and ways of application for those.
R: Relaxing I do at / when / if... A lot of lounging around on Sundays mostly at home and occasionally do a visit to a good old traditional car boot sale in London.
I: Interesting art-places online are... Pretty much every publication and print from Nobrow + it’s nice that also have great stuff regularly show on their site. And of course Bloesem for daily inspiration.
N: New in my home is... A pair of duck-scissors + a vintage briefcase I got from Camden market, which is now portfolio and a little wood shelf I designed recently.
T: Tomorrow I’d like to go to... The moon in a hot air balloon.
S: Studio, my studio is... Some sort of organized chaos…. I have a weird habit of deliberately hiding things around the place (such as a set of new pens, a little old frame, papers, anything really) so that one day, (sometimes months or years later) whilst going through a box or drawer I find something… and the happiness, of not even remembering I had it in the first place, is unbelievable!
