great art / bad pictures

"Another cracker of a show at London’s KK Outlet, this time showcasing the work of the very well-curated selection of artists that make up Hugo & Marie, New York’s most wonderful creative agency. Loosely based on the merging of science and visual arts, the 12 artists and illustrators – many of whom we regard as being some of the very best working today – have pooled their extraordinary minds to create this monster of a show." It's Nice That 

I saw this show with my own eyes last Saturday and - after 2 days of Pick Me Up - I could barely handle any more impressions but: what an a-ma-zing exhibition!! Surely it doesn't get any better than this, some of the works blew me away. Like this one, yes I'm sorry it's a pitiful-iphone-picture so it doesn't come close to what I saw, but still. It's by Kustaa Saksi, I'm sure destined to be an artist with a fabulous name like that.. But then, also to be able to live up to it and be this good. Can you hear me sigh with envy?..

And below Kustaa Saksi; pitiful-iphone-picture #2. Another insanely great work I could never see myself doing. This one is by Merijn HosAt least his name resembles mine more than Kustaa Saksi's did, could there be hope?.. But, no, this is so playful and refreshing. I've got a long way to go, but a girl can dream. Hmm, that might be why the show is called Being / Dreaming..
