We’ve followed the Australia-based Inaluxe blog & shop updates for ages. Their artwork is beautiful – colourful and optimistic! This piece is entitled Atmosphere and is inspired by nature and the changing seasons.
We just wanted to give you a quick, little preview of some of the art and design books that have arrived from publishers in the past couple of weeks. We’ve got a few other blog posts already in the pipeline, but the next Bookmarks review won’t be far off!

A new discovery (at least for us!) this week is this fantastic artwork. It’s called “Cartonlandia” and is the work of Mexican American artist Ana Serrano. You can’t tell from this image, but it’s HUGE – well over 5 foot tall! Have a look at her blog to see the making process.
Perhaps it was listening the recent BBC Radio 2 programme about one of my favourite songs – Elvis Costello & Clive Langer’s Shipbuilding that reminded me of one of my favourite artists – Stanley Spencer. He created beautiful works often on an epic scale about war, industry and religion.
If I’ve whetted your appetite for more there’s a great book entitled Men of the Clyde: Stanley Spencer’s Vision at Port Glasgow available on Amazon
Kolonihavehus, 2010 | steel, found plexiglass, paint | 12′ x 12′ x 14′
We can’t get enough of neon brights for our Tuesday Huesday blog posts at the moment – it must be a subconscious antidote to the grey, wet weather we’ve been having!
When I came across Kolonihavehus (Danish for allotment) by Tom Fruin it just blew me away – there just aren’t enough superlatives to describe it! I’d have loved a visit to Copenhagen to see the installation in the flesh (or should that be “in the glass”?)
Go to his website to see more of his sculptural artwork – his Brooklyn watertower is breathtaking! It’s there until June 2013 so maybe I’ll just have to take a trip to New York instead!
