I thought a few of you might like a break from the overwhelmingly pervasive coverage of NYFW. (This year it seems to have taken over the blogosphere like Kudzu) Nothing clears my head like art, and Tara Donovan is a remarkable artist who takes my breath away with her unique vision.
Tara Donovan takes mundane materials and transforms them into the most stunning forms. Styrofoam cups turn into a futuristic hive; machine tape into melting mounds; disposable paper plates into forms that look lighter than air; scotch tape into eerily beautiful florets. It takes a wonderful mind to defy the norm and to see such beauty in the routine.
I hope you have the chance to see some of her work in person, it is truly astonishing.
Tara Donovan is represented by the ACE Gallery in New York City.
