Shapes in nature.

That wonderful moment when your chiseled ideas start to surface into reality… We’re fascinated by the symbolic shapes people choose to create their own metaphors. The eye searches for shapes and patterns like the mind searches for a beginning. We all have shapes, structures and ideas in our heads that just feel intuitive. Naturally, we translate the designs in our environment into minimalist lines and structures until they become our own language. These shapes fuel innovation and helps us make fresh sense of the chaos and complexity of our changing world.

Fantastic objects that blend past and future: art by Nico Sara

New art by Nico Sara blends the handmade past and machine-made future. They recall the curves and pop colors of mid-century furniture and product designs, they feel tactile and warm. At the same time these glazed and enhanced objects morph into a fully automated era when fantastic objects can be instantly manufactured — they’re cool, quirky and pure to a point of irony. These wide-reaching and iconic urban objects make the everyday feel special. Nico believes the manual process of meticulously painting them by hand brings a human dimension that transforms these artworks into the props of life. In his own words:

My work plays in the limit between craftsmanship and technology. The images I use are composed appealing to photography and computers, which are later rendered on the canvas painting them by hand with brushes, in an effort to rescue the craft work and at the same time showing that is possible to get close to the quality of something produced serially by technologic processes.

A dreamy interlude: New art by Paolo Pibi

There’s a place where dreams come from. New art by Paolo Pibi is like a meditative dialogue, a quiet interlude for yourself.

The luminous landscapes feel familiar because we all have a compartment in our minds reserved for magical places like these. Read more about Paolo Pibi’s work here here.

What’s your rhythm? 〜

Art is a common pulse. We find comfort in the current of the sea, it teaches us consistency, the jazzy sound of raindrops needs no translation. Just like nature’s musical arrangements, these artworks prompt quiet recurring moments to help us find our own beat. Art can help us shift to lower gears when we’re exhausted, or be whirling and fearless when you need a boost. Alternating rhythms are pinned down by artists with a wonderful sense of awareness. Art encourages us to merge our rhythm with the chords of people and cultures different to ours, so we can move more harmoniously in a world of discord.
