In an effort to feature more painters on the site here’s some paintings by Californian, Michelle Blade. I am definitely more familiar with the work of her sister, Sonya… ok bad joke. I’m digging these – the last one reminds me of that Spanish horror film The Orphanage.
“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.
She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
