So Strange.. but beautiful.. but strange.

STAIN By Araks on 2012-05-21 08:41:48 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


This lovely wood wall is made by Rachel Feinstein. She had an exhibit a while back at 
the Lever House in New York. I wish I had a better shot of the whole wall, but I don't.. 
I was rushed.. the exhibit was closed and the guard was nice enough to let us in. I 
always have something to post when she has a show (maybe I have a crush on her); 
I choose this because it seemed a bit different then her usual work.
ARRANGEMENT By Araks on 2012-05-17 11:52:32 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


I took this photo through the window of BDDW in passing.. They always have 
supremely interesting but warm and simple flower arrangements and vessels to 
place them in.

I spotted these beautiful water glasses while at dinner at Blaue Gans on Friday night. 
I was surprised to see such a delicate glass at a restaurant.

I didn't look through everyone.. but from what I did see this was my absolute favorite.  
I thought Stella McCartney was perfection all the way down to her pointy white soled 
FACE MASK By Araks on 2012-05-04 09:27:35 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK

I have found a few different kinds of masks from Charles and Ray Eames.  Some of 
their masks are more complex, these are the simplest that I have found.  I like them 
all, but these are my favorites. There is something nice about the flatness, it looks like 
cut paper collage
LIGHT MY FIRE By Araks on 2012-05-02 10:16:52 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK
According to Feng Shui, I needed more fire energy. I have too much water and wood. 
To balance this, I should wear more red.  I don't really wear red so my idea was 
maybe a ring?  I found this incy wincy garnet ring at Ted Muehling by Gabriella Kiss. 
Im also going to make a dozen dark pink panties.  That should give me good fire.

Sometimes I like the things around me to be asymmetrical. I never think about 
earrings, but this combination is nice. If you think about them like bedside tables... 
Do you really want them to match?

KAARE KLINT By Araks on 2012-04-27 13:16:07 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


I think the proportions of this couch are so interesting.  The height of the back and the 
arm in comparison to  the shallow seat.. and the legs are the most amazing.  I can't 
tell if I would like it or not but definitely intriguing.  Circa 1950

SAUL STEINBERG By Araks on 2012-04-24 05:34:17 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


Untitled (Mask) Lot 352.

Collage of cut paper might be my favorite kind of art to create.  Saul Steinberg is best 
known for his illustrations for The New Yorker, however I am much more drawn to this 
paper cutout collage with pen and tape.
MY KIND OF DISNEY By Araks on 2012-04-23 06:26:31 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


I can't imagine where in Disney this must be. Maybe behind the scenes? So dreamy...
GARY ANDERSON'S RECYCLE SYMBOL By Araks on 2012-04-22 10:55:16 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


Happy Earth Day!!
I had never looked at this symbol as something that started off as a simple beautiful 
line drawing. From American Home Magazine. March 1971

RECYCLED ART By Araks on 2012-04-19 11:04:56 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


Last weekend my boys and I went to my parents house.. For lack of many toys and 
things to do, we usually make art.  We ran out of paper- so the boys took their  old art 
and made collages out of them. They look like cars and trucks to me, however I was 
corrected. The big ones that look like trucks are actually motorcylces... the others are 
in fact cars.

NURSERY By Araks on 2012-04-19 08:39:41 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK


Not so much of a flower girl.. lately I have had a thing for flowers/ flower patterns.  It's 
nice how the light comes through the translucent petals and gives the outline. Spread
from Takashi Homma's book Nursery.

I usually prefer to wear a classic horizontal stripe but I like this messy interpretation.. 
The black/white and navy/white color combination is another interesting detail.

My name is Araks.
This is a running diary of my inspirations.
