Toyo Ito

‘ Located in a privileged area of Passeig de Gràcia, in the centre of Barcelona, with a facade designed exclusively by the prestigious architect Toyo Ito and tourist apartments offering luxury suites, Suites Avenue shines with a unique and avant-garde identity that meshes perfectly with Gaudi’s La Pedrera, just opposite. Ideal for long stays for business or pleasure. ‘ (via Derby Hotels Collection)

Jolynn Krystosek

Jolynn Krystosek was born in California and earned her BA from San Francisco State University and her MFA from Hunter College in New York. She now lives and works in New York City. Her work with wax floral relief carvings and large-scale, site-specific paper cut-outs denote a reverence for traditional craftsmanship and make reference to Dutch still life painting, botanicals, and Victorian cameos. Both media demonstrate Krystosek’s mastery of materials and her ability to evoke beauty and delicacy from her compositions. Simultaneously, due to the vulnerability of the media and temporal nature of the subject matter, the images that are produced also hint at impending decay and the fragility of life.

Jim Lind

Taken from the artist’s website:

” I’m Jim Lind and an entering senior at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. I strongly believe that each person is made up of a collection of the stories they tell. For this reason I’ve always felt compelled to share my stories with others. Whether real, somewhat real, or entirely fictional, these events expose that which is truly important to me. Often the images illicit fabricated narratives that are deeply rooted from the stories I experienced as a child. My photographs are a window into the realities and fantasies that I immerse myself in every day. There is a need to create new work that visually excites the imagination much in the same way a book does. While a picture may be worth 1000 words, a great picture escapes words and enters the imagination. ”
