At 3pm EST, BloodMilk Jewels will be releasing the second installment of the Lily Dale collection.

Named for and inspired by the Spiritualist town Lily Dale in upstate New York, these additions to the collection are devoted to the process of healing in times of grief and mourning. These emotions are mixed in with so many others, and these jewels are dedicated to creating a comfort within the pain, sadness, and anxiety that we all grapple with on a regular basis. The Victorian Spiritualist movement was born out of a need for connection to the other side, to keep the lines of communication open beyond the veil, to reach through the shadows and allow for healing the wounds created by loss. These new pieces are an expression of these endeavors, and, like all other BloodMilk Jewels, are meant to act as talismans and personal protection, encapsulating your sorrow and guiding you through the shadows.

Lily Dale part II will be available today at 3PM EST exclusively at BloodMilkJewels.com.

Morph Knitwear Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

by on Nov.09, 2017, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from | Go to Original Post

Morph-F17-101517-JonDuenas-0322-FINAL

There’s something I read over at Vogue a few years ago that resonated tremendously with me, with regard to knitted garments : “a good knit is… classic, beautiful, eternal, and never quite lets on exactly how old it is.” Well-spun knitwear is forever.

I have always truly gotten a sense of this timelessness and intimate attachment in Angela Thornton’s Morph Knitwear designs. All of her pieces are intensely personal endeavors which meld artistry and utilitarianism, resulting in handmade garments that challenge the traditional perception of knitwear, while retaining classic virtues of durability and timeless elegance.  Morph Knitwear’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection is now available and is a splendid testament to those sturdy textures, cozy silhouettes, and ageless appeal that are the hallmark of her knits.

Angela shared with Haute Macabre that this current collection grew organically out of her F/W 16 collection, Seafaring Wanderer, and the inspiration is much the same – traditional European and British Isles working wear, with much the focused inspiration coming from traditional Aran and Guernsey knitting patterns (each of which is fascinating and unique to family and place, though they all follow a generally similar pattern and method of construction). All of the sweaters in this collection are actually knit by hand with two knitting needles, which, Angela notes, “…felt right to do when using the traditional fisherman’s sweater as a lodestar.”

I wanted to evoke a classic, utilitarian, but still delicate and lustrous feeling with this collection.

“Lazarus Taxa” works by Caitlin McCormack at Paradigm Gallery

by on Nov.08, 2017, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from | Go to Original Post

Cold Soil Caucus

Caitlin McCormack creates works of somber delicacy, ghostly skeletal remains tenderly chained of fragile lace, via cotton, glue, a quickly flashing crochet hook, and deft, clever fingers.

Regarding her art and practices, the artist notes that through the act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue, a material is produced that is structurally similar to bone tissue. In this process, the string implemented can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, an alchemical conduit between the garment and the clothesline. By utilizing media and practices inherited from her deceased relatives, she aims to generate emblems of her diminishing bloodline,  giving the impression that a garment has disintegrated and reformed itself in the image of a tenacious animal’s remains, representative of both the persistence of memory and the significance of cloth and thread in the realm of human experience.

Pyre

Lazarus Taxa, an exhibition of new works by Caitlin McCormack at Paradigm Gallery, presents over 50 fiber sculptures, marking a continuation of the artist’s ongoing investigation of the warping of memory over time through the continuous breakdown of physical matter.

The exhibition title derives from the paleontological concept of lazarus taxa, a term which describes species that disappear and reappear from the fossil record. In this body of work, McCormack explores how repressed memories come back as monstrous and warped versions of original events. The series suggests the monstrosity that is produced when one attempts to forget and the festering of trauma that eventually returns.

Lazarus Taxa runs from October 27, 2017 – December 9, 2017.
