Artist’s Select with Janine Vigus

Our current installment of Artist’s Select comes courtesy of designer Janine Vigus, who writes:

“Many of the works that inspire me are longstanding sources of interest—I find that even when I discover a new artwork/artist/designer, there is often a reference to the artists/designers and movements that I have this history with.  So in a free-associative manner, and in no particular order, I have included here the work of Nouveaux Réalistes Raymond Hains and Jacques de la Villeglé from the late 1940s and early 1950s, works by Arte Povera artists Mario Merz and Guiseppe Penone from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and work by Robert Smithson from 1971 and by Bruce Nauman from 1965–8.  The themes that draw me to this work include an interest in work that is concerned with public sites, work that explores ideas of entropy and reversal, and work that involves forms of collaboration.”

Artist’s Select with Alison Blickle


Welcome to Artist’s Select, a new series on our blog featuring compelling imagery that provokes and inspires – selected by some of our favorite artists, designers and instructors.  Our first selection is courtesy of artist Alison Blickle, who writes:

“Recently I’ve been looking at images from a variety of times and places– ancient Egyptian art, alchemical illustrations from the Middle Ages, textiles and patterns from the Middle East and the American Southwest, old Russian fairy tale illustrations, and the photography of Studio Manasse from the 1920s.  I’ve also been inspired by a recent trip to Alaska– the wild landscape and the art of the native people there are so beautiful.  Looking at the work of other artists is always important to me too.  Lately I’ve been into Edouard Vuillard and William Blake, and the paintings of my friends Jeni Spota in New York and Howard Eige in Oakland, CA.”
