  • I love the sticks, It’d be great to see them in an installation.

  • This is one of my favorite designers/printmakers! Thanks for featuring her work on here. Don’t forget that she’s also a member of the print collective “Halo Halo” (http://www.halohalo.ca/)

    Those fantastic sticks! They remind me, once i went camping in southern France, and i found a white stick and painted it striped in nice warm colors. Then at night snook up to our neighbors tent and stuck it in under the zipper. I imagined them trying to cook it but nothing happened.

    Brazilian artist Ione Saldanha (1921-2001) painted on bamboos the same way Ginette did on sticks… pretty good, though!

  • I love the last print!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
