Wall Porn via @theyoufinder

Tomorrow Christine Olmstead@christineolmstead and I are giving an artist talk for our ‘Coalesce’ art exhibition in Middleburg, VA at The Byrne Gallery starting at 2pm.

When I think about some of the bits of inspiration I save for when I’m gearing up to paint, photos of walls & color combinations really get me going. I’m so obsessed with this photo that I creepily screenshot from one of my friend Kata’s travels @theyoufinder.

To be honest, I probably have a lot of screenshots in my phone of walls she’s posted in her stories... 🤷‍♀️

Between the #wallporn I collect in Europe with subdued pastels and the bright colors Kata finds all over Latin & South America, I’d say I’ve collected a thick visual inspo archive!

I love textures in walls and variations of rust, mauve, turquoise and sand. You see all of that in my artworks from how I built texture to oxidation effects on paint.

I’m looking forward to discussing more about this tomorrow. I also have begun to build a personal blog further explaining how @christineolmstead & I came together for ‘Coalesce’ + the meanings behinds some of the works.

Read more about the show here.

I have more content to populate over the next week to get the blog where I’d like it & I am interested to hear your feedback! 🙏 Hope to see some of you tomorrow in Middleburg!
