“We were together. I forget the rest.”
i am totally blown away by this article in the new york times style magazine, T. it’s about hindu “modern” paintings created in the 1600’s. as someone who is obsessed with all things india and if pressed to say my closest religious affiliation i would say hindu… these are fascinating and beautiful to me. not least because most indian art is generally very ornate. even better? they have been made into a book!! on the top of my christmas list for sure. they become even more beautiful when you know what they are about. for instance- this one “… represents the three gunas or conditions of existence, says Jamme. (In medieval Europe, he notes, black white and red were the three fundamental colors in alchemy.) “Here, in the form of small candles, each has its own capacity to illuminate.”
this one is a meditation on “the endless dance of energy.”
by now everyone knows about the fabulous makers project. all the subjects are fascinating in their own way, and all very inspiring to look at. the one i am currently obsessing over is the jewels of new york. they are caterers food stylists and their work is STUNNING. i have always harbored a not-so-secret wish to be a food stylist and these ladies truly do inspire.w hen asked to describe their project is three words they said:
simplicity, nourishment, community.
rush over and check this out.
also really coveting this ribbons blanket, a collaboration between dwellstudio and pendleton. i myself cannot get enough of these type of retail collaborations and this might be one of the best yet. so perfect for our drizzly, cold nights :)
