Hillary Fayle

HillaryFayleVirginia-based artist Hillary Fayle is known for her stitch work on unconventional materials. The stitched leaves are beautiful works of art indeed but I find her cut leaves just as provocative. You can follow her on her website and see more of her work here at Natalie Hofert Photography.

The bracelets are knotted with woolen fibers and framed with gold plated chain. The necklace is made from Aztec cotton rope with a quartz pendant. The pieces are sold under the brand name, Bonk Ibiza, and are available here on Etsy.

George Korsmit

GeorgeKorsmitThis colorful geometric floor pattern aptly entitled, “Here I Am”, was created by Dutch painter, George Korsmit. It was commissioned for the Regional Training Center in Almelo, Netherlands.  Much of the artist’s paintings, sculptures and installations are built up of irregular patches of color whose arrangements are determined by control and chance. It makes for a hypnotizing effect which is what the artist aims for in his work.
