“Anything but Ordinary” by Jonathan Crowther

‘Anything but Ordinary’, a   collection of new paintings by   artist Jonathan Crowther - opening at the Lethbridge Gallery, Brisbane, Australia // as featured on Studio Home

I am a total sucker for photo realism and when I spotted the work of Australian artist; Jonathan Crowther, my “art alarm bells” started to ring!
Opening today at the Lethbridge Gallery in Brisbane, “Anything but Ordinary” is Jonathan’s latest body of work, and exploration of everday objects (some of the most mundane that you would have never stopped to admire!) pulled into sharp focus in his large scale hyper realistic paintings.

“I like to bring attention to objects and material that everyone is familiar with and has some sort of relationship or connection with”, Crowther says about his art work. “By focusing on the object and painting it at a grandiose scale, the everyday is deified or revered in some way”

Inkster Maken

Foxfire pendant by Inkster Maken // Australia - available online // as featured on Studio Home : Creative Talent from the Lands Down UnderThere is certainly no shortage of beautiful product design emerging from down under at the moment and the latest from Melbourne based Inkster Maken would be lingering around the very top of that great pile!!
We first took a look at the lighting design of Hugh Altschwager here about a year ago. Since then he has expanded his collection, largely made of South Australian Limestone to include the new Foxfire pendant, clean lined Matchstick lamp and super slick Eclipse Wall Light.

Go for a browse and take in the serious quality and craftsmanship of these products!
