I have to admit it. Lately I’ve been in a rut. I haven’t found anything I loved while looking at my favorite design sites, perusing my preferred shelter magazines on the stands or even going to my chosen home stores. It just felt like everything I’ve been looking at is the same and I’m bored with it. I’m not all that interested in mid-century modern. It doesn’t suit my house and it’s ridiculously expensive in Israel. So I stopped looking at it all. And I lost a bit of myself. I stopped writing. And I missed it.
Then I went to get my hair cut and in my girlfriend’s salon were three new shelter magazines – Elle Decor (US), Elle Decoration (UK) and House and Garden (UK). The first and last were meh – but the Elle Decoration, well… I just couldn’t put it down. Especially because of an article on the French artist Claire Basler. Her home is her studio and the artwork was so amazing, as was the space. I just wanted to transport myself there. I loved it so much I finally felt compelled to write again and show her work to all of you.
I’m not one who goes gaga over artists – but there’s something about Claire’s work. It has such – would it be silly to say ethereal quality? Because that’s the word that comes to mind when I see her work.
Her work is simply pretty.
So much pretty. I want one of her pieces, but I’m afraid to write and find out how much her work costs. And then of course there would be the dilemma of choosing one.
When there are so many gorgeous pieces to choose from.
The good news is, if I can’t afford the paintings – I can get the fabric instead.
Or some pottery.
Amazingly stunning art. Thank you Claire Basler.
