This August with my sister Victoire, we had the chance to exhibit some of our work in an old “lavoir” (washing place), which is a beautiful and very unique place. My sister (Instagram @vikyjune) is a young photographer. She also makes little notebooks and lovely things. I am very proud of her and also of me because it is my first real “adult” exhibition.

* These images are made by using black and white pictures with a mirror effect to which the artist adds painting. The result is something peaceful, soft and timeless; nothing fancy but it made quite an impression on me. Fabienne Rivory‘s work can be seen here http://cargocollective.com/labokoff
* Ana Teresa Barboza is a complete Peruvian artist, doing sculpture, photography, drawing, sewing and embroidery. Human body interacting with animals is her main focus : relationship between the human and nature is often aggressive, disturbing and exaggerated by this combinaison of various materials and textures. Her website http://anateresabarboza.blogspot.dk/
* Love the concept of Alexander Korzer-Robinson‘s work. He “deletes” all the white spaces and the texts in books (old encyclopedias or child books etc…) to keep only the illustrations and create a new story. http://www.alexanderkorzerrobinson.co.uk/portfolio
Having his own flat/house is probably the best feeling in the world, just because you are free to put everything you love on the walls. I am not at all in this situation and I just feel like dreaming of the day I will be able to do it. These walls are so inspiring.

A few days ago, a friend of mine bought a book called Dieu rend visite à Newton, literally God visits Newton, only available in french I am afraid. You should take a look at the publishing house though, they have really nice and original books http://www.chemindefer.org/index.html. This friend showed me her new book and thanks to her because it was a revelation! I totally melt for it, specially the illustrations made by Mélanie Delattre-Vogt, a french artist who likes to collect teeth. She is as unique as her drawings. Check her work here http://www.delattrevogt.com/DESSINS.html
In another style -you might have heard of her via tumblr, etsy or pinterest- I like the fresh, young and colorful world of the british artist Sandra Dieckmann. Here is her website http://sandradieckmann.com/ Two girls, two worlds, one passion. I am in love with both of them.
Just discovered the incredible work of Carne Griffiths, based in London. He is “an amazingly creative artist who uses drinks like tea, brandy or vodka to create unique colors for his drawings”. How awesome is that?! http://carnegriff.wordpress.com/
“This piece is worked in brown havana ink with blue waterman ink, tea and water on stretched bockingford watercolour paper.”
We all need a bit of tenderness , don’t we? This article is about three divine artists. They all are different but very talented. There is something peaceful about their art, quite lovable, specially as it is the begining of a new and stressful year.
