Mad Men Modern
How does an artist find a style? Or does the style find the artist instead? Is there such a thing as a "style" or is it what feels right in that moment? For me, it has been a daily practice of feeling and expressing something onto a surface, till it felt right and authentic to what I was hoping to achieve.
Art, or any kind of creative practice is a way to reclaim and celebrate our authentic selves. It is mean of self expression, a channel for emotions and feelings. A perfect way to explore our immediate moment, to relax and think about where we envision ourselves, and where we want to be headed.
The very first mood board features my favorite color: Moody Blue. Deep dark and dramatic, this rich blue is like a walk at midnight, the deepest part of the river, flowing like the royal blue ink in an glass ink pot. Harmonizing beautifully with wood accents, deep walnuts, mid century modern inspired decor. Compliments the earthy tones of burnt orange, terracotta, sunshine yellow and off whites.
When choosing a piece of abstract art, choose one that gives you immense joy and excitement all at once. Choose one which makes your eyes dance along its shapes, or colors which draw you in. Choose bold art to make a statement and choose a style that speaks your language. Find large scaled abstracts to create drama, or small ones to balance a room.
