ARTmonday: 15 Picks from Rise Art

Rise Art contacted me last month, drawn to the photography choices I made in my ARTmonday post, “Figures In the Landscape.” They asked me to curate a collection, which I worked on this weekend and they will publish later this week. My theme will be some sort of personal take on the impending spring.

Rise Art offers artwork for sale that is curated by its team, sourced from artists in graduate degree programs, galleries, and museums. You can browse freely, or take its art style quiz for guidance. For today’s post here, I chose 15 completely random artworks for Rise Art that caught my eye. I’ve included a mix of mediums (photography, collage, paper cuts) as well as genres (portraiture, landscape, abstract, still life). And I definitely found some artists I’ll focus on in more details in the coming months.

Get the Look: 22 Digital Print Dresses

Following up on yesterday’s street style post “Style Right Now: 14 Digital Print Looks,” I pulled together 22 digital print dresses for you. (Actually, a couple of them are long T-shirts, but you could totally wear one as a summer dress if you’re petite, or thrown over a bathing suit.) Of course I won’t actually be wearing any (with red hair and freckles I’ve got enough going on without adding a print) but I really do love the digital print look, especially the landscape-y, photographic ones. I totally adore #1 and #14 is pretty cool, but then again, so is everything she does.

Style Right Now: 15 Digital Print Looks

For about a year now I’ve been putting together roundups for the Sunday Boston Globe spread called “The Enthusiast.” I alternate every other week between fashion and home decor items. This season has been particularly fun. While I’m not a huge fan of spring fashions for myself (much prefer to wear gray and black styles topped off with a beanie, but when it comes to pulling together stories, florals and brights are much more fun.

This week I’ve been working on sourcing digital prints. (It’s not always that easy to find the more interesting looks around here; everything I use must be available in and around Boston.) Getting into the spirit, I pulled a bunch of street style images of digital prints, from landscapes to florals to psychedelic blurriness. If you love them, make sure to check back tomorrow for an online shopping guide for digital print dresses.

Montage: 20 Reflecting Pools + Fountains

Ever since we worked on the design of our house on the Cape, I’ve been harboring desires for a concrete fountain. Not a round, multi-tiered monstrosity, or a mermaid spouting water from her breasts, but a concrete trough with a rusted steel spout. We didn’t do any fancy landscaping or hardscaping, save for a basic bluestone patio, but I still think about it. Here are 20 modern gardens that include water features, specifically reflecting pools, concrete troughs, and wall fountains constructed from Corten steel, and others in that aesthetic vein.

ARTmonday: Naomi Okubo

Naomi Okubo is a Japanese artist who is currently spending a few months in New York City. She is interested in the relationship between people in advanced cultures, like the U.S. and Japan, and their relationships with fashion and their appearance, since many do not have concerns about real necessities like housing and food. Certainly, her detailed portraits of girls in floral dresses lounging in homes and gardens with  Oriental rugs and boho-patterned pillows focus on the rich color and pattern of material goods.
