I'm Ashley.
I'm 22 and I am an illustrator and a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts.
I am a Pisces, an INFJ, and I stan for FFIX so hard. No shame.
In this blog you can expect to see whatever I feel like posting because I decided it's too hard to try and categorize this thing further than "inspiring art and badass clothing mixed with politics".
My favorite things are books and painting, and I love music of most any kind though lately I have been especially addicted to Nightwish and Loreena McKennitt.
I also have an art blog, which can be found at
www,ashleydoesartstuff.tumblr.com
Feel free to check it out, promote me, and what have you.

In Medias Res by Teja Ream

In medias res, translates from Latin as “in the middle of things”, a literary device used to suggest a crucial point where transformation is made.

People are on the move in the installations of Clinton De Menezes.  Large crowds of people seem to be trudging through a white field – a snowy plain or salt flat.  The exodus, though, plays out on the side of a wall.  The South African artist’s model migrations exhibit patience and attention to detail.  Each figure is hand painted before being placed and plastered to the wall.  De Menezes’ installations illustrate the personal and collective drama of human migration.  His work is clearly influence by the ever shifting and complex social landscape of the land of his birth.”

Anish Kapoor, Shooting Into the Corner (2009)

“…A catapult that shoots prefabricated projectiles against the wall of the exhibition hall at a speed of about 50 kilometers per hour. The work in progress continuously gains mass and expands into space so that the sculpture created by the artist with the help of a machine weighs about 20 tons by the end of the exhibition.”


That is awesome. Not even gonna lie rn.

Absolutely love Xooang Choi’s sculptural works! I dropped by at the Hong Kong Art Annual Art Fair yesterday at the Exhibition and Convention Center, and was so excited to, yet again, come across his sculptures. His works reflect his thoughts on the injustices of human rights in Korea, using polymer clay to craft hyper-realistic modified human anatomical features in a rather grotesque manner. I find his works nothing less than impeccable.

Check out more of his works at Sweet Station: http://sweet-station.com/blog/2011/10/choi-xooang/!

Ellen Jewett’s sculptures. Which are available via this Etsy shop, and they are GORGEOUS. I’m stunned by the detail on them. So beautiful!

I…I must obtain these. They are so gorgeous. *_*

Berlinde De Bruyckere’s sculptures are beautiful yet disturbing at the same time. Stuck between figurative and abstract, they are influenced by the work of the Old Masters, and made out of materials such as wax, which provides a uniquely “dead” look to the sculpture. The sculptures highlight an ugly element of the body, showing scars and wounds openly. There’s something disturbingly morbid about her work, but also an element of the beautiful as forms flow together in a way which should not be so natural.
