Nava Lubelski

I recently saw Nava Lubelski’s artwork at the Asheville Art Museum when I was on vacation. I was immediately drawn to her work. I am fascinated by the use of thread on the canvas. If you look closely at the photos you’ll see how she sews and uses the thread to create webs and add dimension to the paint. Her artwork is striking and beautiful and I’ve never seen anything like it before. Check out her website!

Rachel Mueler

I recently viewed Rachel Mueler’s work at the Tim Faulkner Gallery in Louisville, KY. Rachel’s work represents mythology, fantasy and emotion. The figures, though odd in appearance, appear delicate and soft in each work. Her mixing of materials (watercolor, gouache, and ink) and use of negative space is brilliant and adds depth to the paintings.  The photos included below are part of the Fuyapasa series from 2011.

The landscape and characters of the Fuyapasa embody the dynamic struggle between the self and other, both internally and externally. The Fuyapasa are monsters. They are guardians. They are heroes. http://www.rachelmeuler.com/

Home Spotlight – Jacque Parsley

Today we’re taking a peek into the home of Louisville artist Jacque Parsley and her husband Dr. Robert Solinger.  This couple lives in the Crescent Hill neighborhood in a restored barn. The architecture and layout of the house are unique which add interesting elements of design. They have an extensive art collection, in-home gallery walls, artistic furniture, a spiral staircase and more! Jacque and Robert don’t abide by the conservative rules of hanging art and matching color schemes. Their design taste is bold and exciting.  Their home is a mix of museum quality work with the fun and whimsy of a circus. It’s absolutely gorgeous! We could go on and on but the pictures will speak for themselves.
