The Culinary Curios of Dirk Staschke,  Sculptures by Dirk Staschke

Facebook

Award winning Canadian ceramicist Dirk Staschke will be opening an enticing show at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Washington this March, entitled “Falling Feels A lot Like Flying.” Showing a specially made exhibition of bountiful-to-the-point-of obscene food tableaus, Staschke’s work is notable for its large scale size and impressively realistic depictions of abundant stacks of desserts, king’s table cornucopias, and strings of strung up animals about to be prepared for the table.

Inspired by 16th century Vanitas paintings and the opulence of the Baroque period, Staschke’s work mixes extravagant decadence with a sense that such seductive overindulgences are on the cusp of deteriorating and our age of excess and over consumption may be about to crash and burn.

Unique and eye-catching, art can come in many different variations and designs, giving us, the viewer, a wide range of unique allure. Well today we get a look at the work of German designer Christoph Bader, who created some astonishing and eye-catching pieces, which boast shapes and patterns, resulting in artwork that look anything but digital.

The collection, Limm, was done on a computer, making things even more interesting, taking on a look of elaborate and amazing, intricate string work that makes for some busy and brilliant work.

Illustrations by Carmel Seymour

With her watercolor/crayon illustrations, Carmel Seymour is delving into the boundless realm of imagination. Carmel herself describes her art as ‘Feeling the mystery of the world, the way you do without all the answers.’ With that in mind, it’s no wonder we find comfort within the whimsy of her brushstrokes and pencil shadings. In her art, we don’t have to know the answers, we don’t have to know the ending, it’s all about the journey, the story, the narrative.
