art delivery : 06.05.21

Ceramics, stained glass, agates, mushrooms, thrift shops, grandmothers, grief, and haircuts… quite a combo, but I promise it will all make complete sense, and it will be awesome. I’m so excited to have Seattle based artist Emily Counts on the podcast today. I became a SUPER FAN about two seconds after I saw her work for the first time, and I haven’t looked back. Look/listen on the site, or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. {Bio photo by Amber Fouts for Luxe Magazine}

Today’s member spotlight is shining on the nostalgic mixed media work of US based, French artist Twiggy Boyer. I’ll pass it over to Twiggy for the description:

“Memories are recollections of the past, a collection of fleeting moments ingrained within us forever. In my work, I seek to explore how our own memories are often parallel to another person’s. I believe that we have all shared the same sort of memory as someone else but from a different perspective. My pieces aim to bring a sense of connection to one another through filters of culture, traditions, and time. I want to bring the viewer a visual experience and an emotional response-- borrowing aspects from the memory of others, I mold them into my own and aim to create new ones for others to borrow from.”

Beautiful. Follow her on Instagram at @sarahtwiggyboyerart… oh, and she also happens to be the founder of Photo Trouvée Magazine. So. Good!
