Mind Blips

Artist I've been watching.

In honor of International Women's Day, I thought I would give some love to some artist crushes I've had for the past year or so. Here is a little taste of women who are killing it and having fun documenting their process. Mad respect to all of them.

Beth Winterburn • • • @EBW_Artwork
Watercolor and mixed media artist based in Memphis, TN. Love her mark making and fluid compositions.

Heathery Day • • • @HeatherDayArt
Abstract mad woman based in Oakland, CA. Amazing documentation of process. Artist crushing hard for her.

Bianca Bello • • • @_Wildhumm
Boston-based artist who mixes mark making with watercolor. She makes my heart throb. I love her use of repetition and variety in form.
 

Humility in humor: Force Majeure.

Force Majeure Trailer for the Cannes Film Festival 2014 movie directed by Ruben Östlund

What I love about this film is how subtle human interaction creates humor throughout. Even though the avalanche is an extreme event that triggers the storyline it is purely a commentary on how humans react to events and one another. This is what makes it relatable, humble, and endearing. Also the art direction is beautiful.
