Feeling moody?

I often am, if you’re asking, but on this occasion I’m talking about deep colours, faded, peeling surfaces, flowers just hours from the bin. An Auntie’s drinking den kind of vibe. Reading Designer’s Block blog about an antique-buying sojourn in France I found this atmospheric picture, by textile artist Sylvia Marius.

Sylvia Marius photograph Her website sheds precious little light on what it is she does, opting instead for this: “There is the first sight… Casting itself onto various objects. Then… A gathering of objects: Building blocks fashioned from a collection of testimonies.” If you say so, but this, and a selection of her other work is well worth a look. Vive la France!

    Rather lovely aren’t they? The wire constructions remind me of Julie Arkell’s work. Nice to see things that are not perfect and have clearly had a lot of time put into them.
