Sail (Interviewed) works completely with ink to create stunning, surrealistic works of art that show off the exquisite idea of mystery in all it’s full, dark beauty. A brand new series of these pieces will be on display with Sail’s brand new solo show, “Canna Intrat,” which opens Thursday, October 2nd at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Sail himself explains the works as asking, “Who are we?” while incorporating ideas such as personal rebirth. If you’re in or around Seattle, this show shouldn’t be missed.
Overgrowth is a collaborative artistic project created by Parker Fitzgerald – the guy that takes most of the photos for Kinfolk magazine and Riley Messina – the gal that, if I’m not mistaken, did lots of the floral styling for this year’s Spring issue of Kinfolk, the one with the ice cream and flowers that made us go all gaga.
I’m totally going to be honest with you, I feel the concept of florals + faces is a wee overdone at this point, BUT the execution of this portraits (shot with film nonetheless) is beautiful. The floral design is just as awesome and works perfect with the models and the background. It’s whimsy (in the good sense) and somewhat creepy and dark at the same time – hence the feature on today’s post.
And even though it’s fall and there are hardly any wild flowers left, we can still enjoy a good ol’ session of floral design. In the face. Just the way we like it, right?
