Segue... I was recently invited to the online art site, Art.sy. Their entire mission is to make art accessible to anyone with an internet connection (very promising!).. Lots of great images to peruse and so many new artists to discover.
I immediately went into visual overdrive.
Exploring Art.sy quickly became an addiction. I was discovering new artists, techniques and styles, and rediscovering artists I had long forgotten. And with so many great images I was getting the jitters just thinking about how exciting it would be to connect these new 'finds' to my other 'visual addiction', Pinterest. Ultimately, what transpired was my Art 101 assignment: To select a group of portraits and artworks from Art.sy, and, with my jewelry, accessorize them for Sept. Fashion Week! How purely trivial and fun.
Here's a look at some of my art muses:
|Chantal Joffe's, Blonde Wearing a Lace Collar will wear one of my pink Calcite pendants|
|Bodgdan Vladuta's, Mirela and Anselm Kiefer's, Totes-Meer will wear a multi-minerals pendant in silver frame|
|Picasso's, La Femme Fleur will sprout some fingers in this green octahedron ring with pyrite|
|Judy Pfaff's, Year-of-the-Dog number 3 can tie on a Rubber Assemblage choker|
|Faille 's Falling can continue the rust and turquoise color story with a multi-minerals in silver pendant|
|Simmons and Burke, Collage-number 8 will wears a neon pink feathers and gems Rubber Assemblage combo|
|Moholy-Nagy, Lighting Equipment For An Electric Stage can circle the stage with Carnelian rings in silver filigree|
|and Franz Kline's, The Bridge will bridge the connection of jewelry to art in crystal mix pendants|
I could keep going, but Now it's your turn. I'm curious to see how others would approach this.
And to make it more fun, I'm holding a Pin It to Win It contest! Here's what to do:
1. Sign in to Pinterest.com and search for Pauletta Brooks Wearable Art
2. Using a piece of jewelry from my Wearable Art board (or from my Etsy or web site) as your 'muse', create your own board with whatever images it inspires in you (can be art, fashion, nature photos, recipes, etc)
3. Then email the link to your board to: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can track it.
Show us your board (minimum 6 images) by Sept. 30 to be entered to win a piece of Pauletta Brooks jewelry. Enter as many boards as you'd like.
Best of luck!
