Another astounding exhibition to be seen by London this year; the Tate Modern hosts the works of Edvard Munch. These pictures really do not do justice to the colours and movement that Munch injected into his pieces. Through his life he suffered from depression and the Tate has curated the exhibition to portray this thematically. Yet his history is far from overwhelming, being compelling and informative. Well worth a visit so you can experience for yourself!
These images are a real eye catcher. Dependent on marital status the homes are either round (bachelors) or square (married) in this little village in Burkina Faso. The decorative patterns consist of triangle, line and diamond shapes, adding a unique creativity to the reddish brown base. Drawings of sacred animals, such as snakes and crocodiles, are present to bestow protection upon the village. These geometric patterns may be familiar from western fashions this summer, showing how forms can be inspirational across the globe. Apparently the world is not quite as large as we think!
Kara Rosenlund has collected an assortment of beautiful pieces and packed them into her 1956 Franklin Caravan to take vintage on the road. These carefully restored items and trinkets are full of her creativity and flare. The products are sourced from all over the world, bringing little pockets of culture to the Australian store. What a lovely surprise it would be to bump into this gem in the outback.
