Mask Marks Heart's of Our True Heroes

A Mask Can Be Our Most Potent Weapon In this Fight Against a Venomous Virus. Make No Mistake About It, We Are In a War! The fight of our lives. There is no news clips that will makes this all quit. This is ain’t no faux-show. This is Real Life. Masks Save Lives but Leave a Deep Mark in the Heart. They are a prophetic gesture of good will. They remind us of what we have lost and what we long to save. Our strengths and our weakness. 

Woman Walking This World Alone...

Sara Blomqvist captures the je ne sais quoi of the city in ‘Paris Chic’ by Sebastian Sabal-Bruce for Vogue Germany, September 2019.

Street Scene Seen in Hunger Magazine

Marco Réa captures a unique blend of beauty/street in ‘Mask‘ by Chris Milo for Hunger Magazine. He applies his scattered artwork on copied photographs. Making the end result appear as if some of the paint is splattered over Nana Abramova’s fine face, while the rest is met with a pane of glass. These captures are compelling. Just when you think you know what it is you are gazing at, you find yourself questioning the very nature of reality. 

A Veiled Victory is in Place as White Netting Falls Over Devon's Face

Fabric makes it’s way around the body, enhancing every curve and inspiring every concept. 

The Lines of Lunacy All But Unleashed

Unto this house we will a home… living far inside the palindrome… from back to front it is the same… hiding inside the sights of plain… ore’ the pathway of beauty abounds… as water rushes in solemn surround… what was lost in truth we found… as we make our way to higher ground… faded in glory we feed on the light… hungry we hang on to witness the sight… bending in borrowed time we yield… ourselves to a state of reverent appeal…. 

Artful Expression of the Path of Black

Helen Almeida captures the essence of expression. Not controlling that which comes out, rather, allowing it to flow. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. To uncover those deeply hidden gems, one must be willing to go down the path of black. Sometimes difficult, sometimes even grotesque. Noon promised us it would be an easy process, only that our prospects would open.

When Our Insides Close Down, Darkness Prevails. 

Open Your Mind And Find Spirit to Fly

Assa ignites a sense of serenity as we feel our spirits rise by Harley Weir for Vogue Italia, January 2018. We have entered a period of our existence that doesn’t demand alot of background noise. We don’t need to distract or overwhelm, we need only to honor our inner fire. The Female Spirit is Here to Say, We’ve Taken Our Place and We Aren’t Going Away. Here we witness something that may seem subtle, or worse, not loud enough to get the attention required to deem it successful. 

Poetic Reflection on Storm Devastation

Reflecting on the recent devastation in Florida and Texas, I was touched by Collage/Clothing Artist, Tashi Fay. These poetic pieces spoke to me in a very unique way.

I Wanna’ Go Home

A sadden show has come to bare

upon the shores of life’s despair

it’s here on this fertile ground divine

where laughter has seized in record time

broken windows… broken doors…

broken hearts… came to flood the shores

as the storm set down a bold retort

form and fury was set to thwart

we won’t take this burden sitting down

we’ll banned about from town to town

I’ll call to the four winds that blow

in all directions that spirits flow

to the ancient goddesses we pray in kind

that what was lost ~ our hearts will find

memories are made from the touch of a hand

from feeling the dirt that comes from the land

these winds they may roar another day…

but, they’ll never take my memories away

Eyes Look Behind as She Sees Ahead

Nadja Auermann looks behind as she sees ahead by Arnaud Lajeunie for Numéro Berlin #1, FW ’16. Art unleashes the avant-garde beast, setting in motion a dramatic feast. The depth that we reach is the truth by which we seek. As one of the most talented models of all time, her abilities far outweigh the magazine page. A body in full motion is much like a piece of poetic prose. We can appreciate her long limbs and impressive lines, however, perfection is not the goal.
