Hi lovely Sweet Thing readers! I am very happy to share with you some things I have been eyeing and enjoying lately. I call this list "Soft Geometry". As I was grouping together this collection I was trying to get to the bottom of why I am attracted to things that are both soft and geometric. I couldn't put my finger on it until I started looking around my studio and it became so clear. I love the play between things that are both hard and soft, and it is so evident in my work, it only makes sense that I am attracted to these same things outside the studio as well. It all started with one of my favorite artists, Tauba Aurebach, and her pop-up book: delicate paper is brought to life and given structure when the book is opened. I also adore the work of
milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre , and this scarf in particular is so beautiful, it's called the Calder: dusty shaded shapes and graphic lines dance together on silk. This love of opposing forces even translates into music. I have been listening nonstop to the new Beach House album, Bloom: in my favorite song their melodic voices sing about the magic of the mineral lapis lazuli.
Thank you Jessie for inviting me to guest post!
