If beautiful things were the only to exist, you or I would not be here to enjoy them.

Art Crush: Roman Signer

I found this Swiss artist through one of my favorite art blogs: todayandtomorrow

Here is one of my favorite videos:

Roman creates “action sculptures” that are experiments that involve set up and execution.  There are many others, this one is just an easy access. I love his sense of humor – perfect balance of awe and hilarity.  Who wouldn’t love that in a man?

If you are reading this Mister Signer, I would like to take you out for dumplings.  Perhaps I’ll call you a dumpling, too.

Scandinavian Homes – and suddenly, my heart feels heavy.

It is no secret that I hope to live in Scandinavia.  I hope to live there soon for school, but perhaps will end up retiring there.  Or just by looking at these photos I will perish from perfection.

They have a different way of doing things; they aren’t scared of dead animals or using black paint.

I am so in love.

They do so many things right, this is merely a fingernail clipping of the brilliance.



Obviously, this is not one single home.  These images are all credited from their original source – just roll the cursor over the image and the web address will show itself.  All images were second-hand stolen and reblogged from http://scandinavianretreat.blogspot.com/ :my newest blogcrush.

If not, winter. Finally.

Art Crush: Urs Fischer

Installation art is probably my most favorite of all mediums.  This guy gets a bad wrap and has had some negative reviews, but I can’t help but love him.

He is also known for having bad tattoos:Street art by Roberta Thorn (love her!)

I say, if you have tattoos at all, you have to have a few bad ones.  I know I have a few shameful ones!
