Art in the Home of Thereza Rowe...

 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.

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.

TRowe_5

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.

TRowe_4a

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.

TRowe_4

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!

Art in the Home of Gracia & Louise

Gracialouise_image05

Art in the home of Gracia + Louise

A: Art means… something indefinable. It is beyond any definition either of us is able to conjure here.

R: Reading books is a way to learn and forget the self; reading blogs, a pleasurable way to chat with friends and share those tiny daily joys; leafing through magazines, a delicious way to spend time as a coffee cools on nearby table and a pet snoozes on one’s lap.

T: Trends we see in art or graphic design are many in number.

Gracialouise_image02

A: Artists we admire are... both currently practicing and from long ago; are celebrated and relatively unknown; and are often those who make for their own enjoyment. The list, if complied, would be near to endless.

N: Never will we tire of time spent doing exactly as one pleases. Reading a book until mid morning, pottering in the garden with hands in the soil, tinkering on some project, strolling without clear purpose. At liberty to decide the path one will take is it in a nutshell.

Gracialouise_image03


Gracialouise_image06

D: Dreams for our own work are about... making something that will communicate something to another. 

P: Projects we are currently working on are... centered on paper, animals, curious juxtapositions, and the unfamiliar.

Gracialouise_image08

R: Relaxing we find essential to sanity. 

I: Interesting art-places online are... in the hundreds.  HYPERLINK "" Mark Lazenby, the Lille Métropole Musée d'art moderne, d'art contemporain et d'art brut, and those we visit from our  list of many links is a good start.

Gracialouise_image07

N: New in our home is... an elderly dog by the name of Percy.

T: Tomorrow we like to go to... the café where Percy is treated like a canine king, served a complimentary bowl of chicken freshly cooked.

Gracialouise_image01

S: Studio, our studio is... warm, busy, crowded, populated by pets, private. It is home.

................................

Thank You Gracia Haby + Louise Jennison, who make artists' books, all sorts of things, and most usually they make things on paper... all from their home-based studio in Melbourne, Australia.
