Justyna Warwas-Kozak

Today I spent the afternoon with my friend from work and her husband. I learned my gmail accound had been hacked again, which was not the pleasant part of the afternoon, but Agnieszka showed me something she thought I might like - drawings and collages by her friend Justyna Wyrwas-Kozak. I am looking for something to hang in my living room and immediately fell in love with these! I hope I can buy a couple, I already have my favourites... Check out few more pieces after the break and I will get back to you with more details on Justyna's work and the techniques she uses soon.

Punctirus Jewelry

When I was a kid I used to love to cut things out and the dotted lines with scissors at the end alkways meant fun and a beginning of a new adventure. This funny jewelry plays on that image. I have to say when I look at the bracelet and the line and scissssors I think - doesn't it look like you're supposed to cut the hand off...?
Well, better not to think about it too much!

Jeff Nishinaka

If you like paper work by Peter Callesen (featured here and here) as much as I do, then you must explore amazing paper sculptures by Jeff Nishinaka. Nishinaka is an LA artist who initially began as a painter and started to work with paper by accident. Isn't it great that such accidents in life happen? He says paper to him is a living thing, with its own energy that he only tries to point in a good direction. It's hard to deny his work a living soul indeed and also hard to believe this actually is paper. I have never really worked with it, accept from the kindergarten times when I loved to cut my way into anything, so I'm no expert to judge the potential in this material. Looking at Nishinaka's work you get a feeling that forming paper is the easiest thing, but I think the truth might be slightly different...

Plywood furniture from TABANDA

Today I went through a little internet horror, as my emails got hacked and spammed all the contacts from my adressbooks with a dramatic cry for help from Madrit, were - supposedly - I had been held at gunpoint, robbed and thus asked for financial help. Both my emails were reset and as a result I was also blocked from accessing Blogger, until the whole situation got cleared.

Shortly then I'll just say that the above set of furniture follow the recent trend to rediscover plywood. It was designed and made by a Polish studio TABANDA (created by former architects maugosia malinowska filip ludka i tomek kempa).
