Salihah Moore

salihah

 

Salihah Moore is an artist and designer of hand beaded jewelry and wall hangings.

Gathering inspiration from textiles and contemporary design, Salihah strives to make new the ancient craft of weaving seed beads together. Although she’ll have moments of vision in color palette or pattern, most of her creations form naturally from the making process and are not premeditated.

Originally from California, Salihah developed a deep love affair with the ocean, sand, flora and fauna of the Pacific coast. Working with the seed beads reminds her of sifting through sand grains as a child and being in awe of the hues and variations.

All weavings are hand sewn with needle, thread, Czech and Japanese glass seed beads.

Every piece is hand-made from her home studio in Boulder, Colorado including the gold fill ear wires.

Caroline Larsen

caroline larsen

The work of Brooklyn-based artist Caroline Larsen.  From her most recent solo show Kabloom! at The Hole in New York:

In oil paintings that experiment with icing-thick and even woven paint application, she explores flowers and plants, car crashes and mountain ranges as her subjects.  Dispensing paint through a pastry tube with varying nibs, Larsen is able to line, layer and weave colors together, sometimes blending them within the same extrusion. This technique can produce a variety of effects, from 8-bitish pointillism in the weaves to a sort of jewel-like sculptural relief in the plants, or a tessellated warping mesh grid in the hybrid works.
