ARTmonday: Photography from Tappan Collective

Yesterday morning I was catching up on my Pinterest boards when I came across this crisp bedroom designed by L.A. based designer Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors. I love the sapare design and mix of white, charcoal and wood, but what really caught my eye was the misty landscape photo (affordable artwork I suspected/hoped) tinged in pink. (Clearly I’m still stuck on my blush and charcoal color palette.)  The photo was handily captioned, crediting this statement photo to Brian Merriam.

Brian Merriam is a self-taught, Brooklyn-based photographer whose prints are sold though Tappan Collective. Founded by two young Los Angeles natives, Chelsea Neman and Jordan Klein who met at the University of Michigan, Tappan Collective is yet another great source for affordable artwork. I explored the photography section and came up with these 14 images that are thoroughly appealing. Eight of them are photographic portraits of partially obscured women. A pretty good match for my taste I’d say.

ARTmonday: Mario Rossi’s Geometrically Deconstructed Photos

Having made a quick trip to Manhattan over the weekend for a friend’s BIG birthday, I’m definitely in a city state-of-mind.

While all of Naples-born, Rome-based photographer Mario Rossi‘s photographs aren’t necessarily taken smack in the middle of a city, the deconstructed, cubist compositions echo the framework of a skyscraper. Rossi indeed cites geometry as integral to his photography, putting forth that his forms are repeated with an attention to mathematics and music, as though viewed through a kaleidoscope.

Here are 12 examples of Mario Rossi’s colorful, geometrically deconstructed photos.
