Prints by Joe Helmore

Print by Joe Helmore // New Zealand/Australia - available online // as featured on Studio Home

For less than a quarter of a second I wondered if you might be getting sick of the art based posts….then I thought, of course not, IMPOSSIBLE!

So, to keep the intro’s flowing, here is an exciting update from one of our “shared” (NZer living in Byron Bay) emerging talents!
I posted about Joe Helmore and his beautiful, layered largescale work earlier in the year. I’d definitely be considered a serious fan of his original works and one day I will surely arrive a “collector” status.
In the mean time, I can start with his brand new offering of beautiful limited edition prints!! This a tight, capsule collection printed at a variety of sizes (imagine the horse above at A0!!!) that will allow us all to jump on Joe’s fast moving track upward in the artworld.

Bird Plus Bird

Print by Bird Plus Bird / Melissa Boardman - New Zealand. Available online // as featured on Studio Home

A month ago I received a submission that at first, felt pretty normal. Normal in the sense the work was great, but I wasn’t feeling “attached” to it (obviously I enforce a strict, scientific acceptance process!!) But on clicking, exploring and striking up further conversation with Melissa Boardman, I discovered she was fronting a truly beautiful body of work across so many different mediums. Under the guise of Bird Plus Bird, the Wellington based artists/designer/illustrator/maker produces prints, calendars, repeating pattern (which was GORGEOUS!) and to be honest….I imagine there is a WHOLE lot more to be revealed from her!

So I am very excited to present, what I feel is, the beginnings of Melissa Boardman’s creative offering and I sure hope anyone brand people out there recognise a visual talent that might be worth collaborating with!

Fine Art Fundraiser and amazing chance to snap up local talent!

“Desert Boxes”
By Mickey Ross
……….

Its such a pleasure to introduce this project as it’s not only a bloody good cause, it is a bloody CRAZY good opportunity to snap up affordable photographic art from some of our regions best!

A Bit More Soul began as a series of photographic retreats and over the years has come to represent a community of photographers, artists, poets and creative forces all bonded by their time spent together and being dedicated to nurturing, improving and mastering their passion.
I was lucky enough to attend and speak at their D’Urville Island retreat at the end of last year, and still, even now feel the positive effects of being included in the shared discussion, connection and feedback the group very regularly takes part in online.

So when one of their pivotal attendees and founding speakers suffered a personal tragedy just a few weeks ago, the group leapt into action! And the result is this AMAZING body of donated work made available to you at incredibly rare pricing. Most of these contributors are top of their respective photographic fields, they are professionals….but the work you see below is outside of “work”. Much of it is shot on film via personal projects, travels and just their own point of view!
This group includes some personal photographic heroes and respected friends of mine – I purchased my first piece within 2 minutes of getting the “we are live” email….and don’t think I am quite finished!

Take some time to browse the small selection I pulled below and click on through to explore the complete collection PLUS the sites of the contributing artists. Then decide if the small/large version will look best in your space. (That’s not really a question…bigger is always better!)

Get purchases done online before December 19 for Christmas delivery and YES Australians and beyond, you can get involved and own too!

Support local and support a family sideswiped so close to Christmas.

We’ve touched based a few times with Willie Weston co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti since they launched their business to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product.

Using the Rosie Ngwarraye Morton’s Sugarbag Dreaming fabric design, they have combined forces with Australian design champion; Koskela to produce these beautiful limited edition bean bags.

New from Just South West

New largescale photographic prints by Just South West // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home

I know it wasn’t long ago that I introduced the work of Christchurch photographer Stacey Weaver, and that if you follow me on my personal instagram my OWN Just South West print pops up a bit….but its because I really truly love to gaze at this work!!

Just South West offers prints that approach decent size ( I love BIG!) and make for bold pieces of art. Stacey’s latest additions continue with her interest in capturing that invisible line tread by flowers as they disappear toward a slow but beautiful decay.

Enjoy the 3 new images below and click through here for a pre Christmas trawl!
