Of a Mod Nature: Mary Chomenko Hinckley

1 Dec

Camisoles and combat boots.. cayenne and chocolate.. some things just don’t seem like they would go together.  Take, for example, the work of Mary Chomenko Hinckley.  This is an artist who enjoys finding the harmony in the disparate.

Like pairing the detailed natural images of ordinary birds against mod-style backgrounds whose colors may echo or complement those of the bird, but the contemporary patterns give these ol’ birds a new spin.

In her work, the artist is exposing the relationship between objects that seem completely unrelated.  By juxtaposing these seemingly incongruent objects, she finds harmony in the new relationship.  Plus, I think they give these guys the cheeky little personalities they deserve.  Birds are fun, what can I say?

Friday Faves: Falling For Fall

14 Oct

Said it before, I’ll say it again.  Fall is my favorite season.  The cool, crisp air, the golden light, the colors, the comfort food, I love it all!  For the very first time, this Florida girl is experiencing a real Fall.  With boot weather and incredible changing leaves, I’m so excited, I can barely stand it.  While in this autumnal frame of mind, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite Fall-inspired art…

Please visit these artists’ websites to see more of their work– some Fall-ish, some not.  I’m hoping George & I might see some real Fall color this weekend here in Southern Oregon.  What about you?  Any autumnal activities on tap?
