ARTIST JAMES KOSKINAS & HIS EXTRAORDINARY
Faces: fragments of noses, eyes, mouths, I've seen, remembered,
rendered, a resemblance of Humanity, self portraits?
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE said: The eyes are the window to the soul...
and if you gaze into the eyes of James Koskinas latest body of work, I think you can see into the soul of each painting. I visited his studio last week and was drawn into each rendering; taking a few photos
to share with my CHASING readers. More of James work can be
seen at the SELBY FLEETWOOD GALLERY on Canyon Road.
ARTIST SHARON SORKEN'S AMAZING
Eco-printing is a technique where leaves, flowers and plants are placed on fabric or paper, bundled and steamed to release the natural dye inside the plant, creating a one-of-a-kind print/design. Sharon Sorken is a master of this technique and her silk scarves are exquisite. I watched and photographed her process and finished pieces. Quite fun...
Sharon uses an assortment of leaves that she has found yield the best colors and shapes..But there are always lovely surprised when she finds a new leaf or spray of leaves that work!
They are placed/swirled/layered onto silk
(this will become a silk scarf).
Rolled, bundled and tied...
finished piece..no two are alike...
You can find Sharon's eco scarves, clothing and table linens at:
