25 dresses for 25 cities

German designer Jule Waibel has created 25 amazing and gorgeous folded paper dresses for fashion brand Bershka's shop windows around the world. Jule Waibel produces the dresses by hand-pleating large sheets of paper into forms that fit the body. Each takes over ten hours to complete! Jule´s work is influenced by the geometry and simplicity of the Bauhaus. She playfully combines objects, fashion, performance with a strong focus on geometric shapes, transformation and aesthetics.

Material Confusion

‘One-to-One’ by Helsinki based artist and designer Caroline Slotte features a set of wooden objects on a wooden background. Not unusual - if it wasn't for the fact that these objects are not normally made in wood. Still we're able to identify them as well known objects. Demonstrating an engaged sensitivity towards the associations, memories and narratives inherent in the objects, Slotte´s intricate physical interventions allows us to see things we would otherwise not have seen. The tensions between the recognizable and the enigmatic, the ordinary and the unexpected are recurring thematic concerns in Caroline Slotte’s artistic work. Via Ignant.

Balsa Wood and Watson

Enjoy these beautiful and amazing sculptures by Australian artist Amy Joy Watson from the series Year Without Boys and Big Rock Candy Mountain. The work is constructed through the delicate hand-stitching of finely cut balsa wood segments and I'm especially in love with the bows! They look so elegant though they are formed through the unlikely pairing of wood with needle and thread - what a challenge! Via The Jealous Curator.

Concrete or concrete

In fact it's both! These wonderful and humorous sculptures/designs are very concrete indeed and some are even made of concrete! Scottish designer David Taylor based in Stockholm is offbeat and questioning in his search for a new reflection of our time. With serious play and an appetite for experimentation meeting exquisite materials, a raw and strangely loaded material poetry arises with both a twist and humor. Each piece has a unique personality and makes a statement, very refreshing amidst the ocean of mass production. Via Trendland.

Berlin based artist Dalila Dalléas Bouzar is inspired by cinema and photography but also by classical painters like Masaccio, Delacroix or Malevich. Her painting is marked by the expression of her own history, and no matter which subjects it deals with, whether it is portrait, landscape or sexuality, her artwork is always related to violence and with a search of release. These amazing oil-on-canvas-paintings are from the series Taboo. Via The Jealous Curator.

Simple and Sleek

Happy new year to all of you! What better way to start the year than with these sleek and simple resin sculptures in lovely colours by Los Angeles-born artist Peter Alexander. His geometrical works in resin are simple and understated but clearly show his ability to evoke feeling with little detail. Via Trendland.
