+ Surface Stories

Hello again,
Here are some material sensitivities I’ve forced into narratives. Enjoy, friends.


+++ A painting consisting of layered, cracked and aged paint. Fragility from moisture causing torn segments in the entirety of this canvas structure. A signature on the back, a once treasured piece of artwork beginning its descent into a less recognizable form.


+++  Blade from a broken overhead fan. Assumably ripped from a fragile connection, to the mechanism it revolves around. Once in a room, providing circulation, now is forced into stagnation. But who knew between the layers of faux wood panelling there would be a fluffy sorbet hue that wanted to break free.


+++ Sofa cushions. Fabric so worn that it has segmented into threads. Each fiber once consoling the foam base. So many years the foam was clothed with a woven exterior– yet over time white strings have independently unravelled, breaking away from their interconnected role as protective coverings.


Happy imagining– good bye for now,

+ Sources of Captivation

Hello all,
Glean artist [caroline] here, sharing imagery I found captivating at the metro transit station.


+++ Beautiful exploration of form and color, seen through this mound of carpet padding insolation. Such volumes, allude to letting go of the past in search of pursuing a new start– a renovation to the physical space one calls home.


+++ As an avid antique collector, nothing gives a sense of dedication and [perhaps] devotion, like items aged to perfection. Things gathered amongst the piles, to potentially deconstruct: window panes, storage containers and yard tools.


+++ Captured a silly placement, during a moment in time. But really, thank goodness metro transit station is open Sundays. So much exploration, observing and rummaging yet to come.



Till next time, friends– signing off,
